Looking to convert landlines over to voip phones. There used to be a PABX in the office but that has died.
Can anyone recommend virtual voip solutions/companies? 


Looking for the following features :


  • Temporary Redirecting
  • Outbound Transfer
  • Inbound Transfers
  • Voicemails
  • On hold music
  • little to no hardware/software in the office

Best and cheap really isn't a combo that comes easily...




some of the features your looking for aren't covered by bottom of the pool providers..

I am actually going to recommend Voyager for this task - they have a virtual PABX type solution that may work for you. May pay to get in touch with them.

2talk if you know what you are doing.

Voyager if you want a helping hand.

Digital Island if you want a fully installed managed solution.

Price goes up as you work down that list.

If you want a hand with the top two options (and are in Auckland), can highly recommend Voicepro. They will help with hardware and configuration.

We have been using conversant at work the several years ago. Very easy to use and reliable.
They set everything up and its just worked.
They merged with voyager a little while back.

We moved our landline at home to 2talk. Very solid and cheap. PITA to get setup. Can't talk to anyone for help and for a business I would say you have a good chance of stuffing it up without some inside help.
