Cincinnati Bell Business Launches Connected Office Voice for Small Businesses

April 06, 2016

CINCINNATI, Ohio – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Cincinnati Bell Business has launched Connected Office Voice, a hosted communication solution for small businesses. This new hosted Unified Communications infrastructure delivers enhanced capabilities and lower overall costs. With Connected Office Voice, small businesses can seamlessly integrate voice, email, instant messaging & presence (IM&P), mobility and call recording services into a single, cloud-based, communications system.

Connected Office Voice utilizes the Internet as its access method and is offered in two configurations: Key System and PBX. The solution is designed for both new businesses, and to replace premises-based hardware systems with simple yet powerful solutions for businesses with up to 15 phones per location. 

Small businesses typically have similar communications needs as large businesses, yet pay a higher cost per user due to fixed costs spread over fewer employees.  These businesses can realize cost reductions in communications immediately with this hosted solution that is scaled to meet their changing needs. Ongoing maintenance and technology upgrades are no longer a business’s concern as Cincinnati Bell Business provides maintenance and upgrades on all components of the offering.    

“At Cincinnati Bell Business, we are constantly striving to keep our services relevant to the ever-changing needs of our customers,” said Jim Vorwald, Vice President of Solution Design and Management.

“Our Connected Office Voice offering provides our customers with the same quality services that they currently expect from Cincinnati Bell Business.  This service eliminates the need for capital investments so that businesses only pay for what they use.  Connected Office Voice also positions our customers for other Internet-based applications that can improve their efficiencies, allowing them to focus their efforts on their own businesses.”

Connected Office Voice is the first product to be introduced in Cincinnati Bell Business’ new Connected Office suite of products. Additional products will be introduced later this year.
