Simple & Powerful
Don’t settle; Capitalize on simplicity and functionality
Switchvox proves that a fully-featured Unified Communication (UC) solution can be both simple and functional. No longer do you need to choose between a basic, featureless, simple UC solution or a fully-featured UC solution that requires specialized degrees to manage and maintain.
With a simple point-and-click web-based interface, once complex tasks such as setting up speed-dials, looking up employees in a company directory, forwarding and transferring calls, and even real-time video and chat, all become intuitive. Administrators, too, can now enjoy a phone system without all the complex programming languages, specialized commands, and a litany of buzzwords and technical jargon. The same point-and-click, modern, web-based interface focuses on enhancements to business processes, not just configuration. And with phones that mimic the ease-of-use of a web page, physical handset usage no longer has to be a mystery or require lengthy training classes.Learn More
