Technology-savvy customers are now expecting their company's phone system to handle more than just telephone calls.

New York Business VoIP Resellers

VoIP services allow employees to work remotely and still be as productive as if they were at their desks (they will be able to extension dial their colleagues from their home office phones, for instance). Hosted VoIP also enables you to make moves, adds, and changes in real-time by use of an online admin portal.
