8/3/2010 – Today, VoIP innovator sipgate (www.sipgate.co.uk/team
<http://www.sipgate.co.uk/team>) launched a new team edition of their UK
telephone service. This entirely web-based service replaces both phone
systems and phone lines, allowing small and medium-size companies to
move their corporate phone service to the cloud! sipgate team starts at
only £1.50 per user per month and a 30-day free trial is also available.
With sipgate team each employee has online access to their inbox,
containing phone logs, faxes, recordings and voicemail messages.
Features like forwarding, labelling and comments allow employees to be
more productive. It also allows employees to return calls at the click
of a button, or sign and send faxes through a WYSIWYG interface on the
company letterhead. Most features such as call forwarding, call
recording, and 3-way calling can be activated with a single mouse-click,
making features previously hidden in phone systems now fully accessible
“Our aim is to make a telephone service that’s as easy to use as email,”
said Thilo Salmon, CEO of sipgate. “If you can use email, you know
enough to run your company’s corporate telephone system. We think this
service will resonate particularly well with entrepreneurial companies
and firms that have already realised the benefits from other web-based
services like hosted CRM or email.”
sipgate team offers a variety of features designed to make companies
more productive, collaborative and efficient such as:
– Quick to set-up, manage and use – With an interface similar to
web-based email, it’s simple, fast and intuitive to use. Employees can
browse through their inbox and outbox for a complete history of
voicemail messages, calls, recordings and faxes.
– Save time by letting employees manage their own preferences – While
only administrators have preferred access to add new users, office
locations and blocks of phone numbers, employees can manage their own
preferences without any further help.
– Promote team collaboration with a CRM-like functionality – Calls can
be routed to multiple employees simultaneously – such as customer
service representatives–and accessed through the Web, where the calls
can be tagged and noted according to the action taken.
– Enhanced Web-fax – Faxes can be sent and received online. Using
uploaded letterheads and signatures, employees can send official-looking
faxes over the Web and sign them with a click of a mouse.
– Announcements – Auto-attendants can play-back personalised recordings
and direct callers by requesting them to press specific numbers on their
– Scalability – There is no limit on the number of phone numbers that
can be added to the service. Employees can be added or removed as the
