Vodafone NZ has announced Vodafone Office today:


... Vodafone Office, a suite of services that will allow customers to keep their landline number, and answer it on whatever device they have to hand – an IP desktop phone, the mobile phone handset or a softphone program running on a laptop.

As an additional feature voicemail will sit side-by-side with the customer’s email in their Outlook inbox as well as being available through the normal telephone access.

“We’ll bring the best of Voice over IP (VoIP) and mobility together in one offer so customers can get on with their business instead of worrying about trying to stay in touch,” says Kursten Shalfoon, Vodafone’s GM of Products and Services.

Vodafone Office combines full PBX functionality with the mobile so business customers can make and receive calls from wherever they are – at their desk, on the job or working from home on the laptop. Customers can continue to use one landline number as a single point of contact yet get the full benefits of mobility that Vodafone offers.

Services start from NZ$40 per seat per month.

Vodafone Office’s free software package gives the customer the ability to make or answer incoming calls on any device, divert them to voicemail send them on to another extension and a host of other PBX capabilities, without the upfront cost of installing a PBX system.


Interesting...

Could this be a New Zealand first? (as in the package as one whole thing)

It's very interesting as it runs on the person's computer, and the software package is free...

For more information or for a demonstration contact Paul Brislen.

That's very cool. Certainly not a first but at the price point it could represent very good value.

It will be intersting to see more technical details on this.

I saw this demo'd at the conference and seemed like an excellant idea with a lot of functionality behind it. Haven't had a play myself so can't add much more than that but can picture it being very popular with small businesses.

All I can find for now is the press release.

Googling for "Vodafone Office" in New Zealand turns out nothing.

Ha, you know me so well...

any/all questions. I'll see what I can do.

Basic stuff - it's $40/month/seat for the package as it stands. Later we'll add in call centre functionality etc but for now it's more suited to medium and smaller businesses that want the full PBX capability without shelling out for a hardware upgrade.

I've seen the demo and it's very nice. Calls ring on all three devices (desktop IP phone, laptop, mobile) and you can answer them wherever you are... Forward calls from your mobile, conference call your staff, click on a phone number on a web page and call direct from the laptop and so on.

Cheers

Paul

Also referred to as 'Mobile IP Centrex'

I was on a trial at Telecom around 2005 that did this. Great service - single voice mail, Outlook integration, etc. At the end of the trial I didn't want to go back....

I wonder what happened to the Telecom offering?
