Your business now has a powerful new option in voice services — Cloud Communications from Great Plains Communications.

Cam Ewoldt, Manager of Transport and Voice Networks, explains Cloud Communications this way: “Cloud Communications is an OTT (over-the-top) offering which utilizes the business customer’s broadband service to connect to a virtual PBX or hosted service located in the cloud. The only on-site equipment required are SIP phones and/or desktop clients.”

Key benefits of our Cloud Communications service are:
  • Cost Effective: Lower capital expenditures and long-term operating costs for hardware, maintenance and installation.
  • Scalability: Easily add additional seats as your business expands.
  • Collaboration: Potential for collaboration features such as scheduling, screen sharing and instant messaging.
  • Remote Locations: Connect branch offices and other remote locations on our 9,500-mile fiber network with minimal extra equipment needed.
  • Hosted Voice System: Contains the same features as a traditional phone system, but with less overhead costs.

According to Ewoldt, businesses of all sizes and types can be good candidates for Cloud Communications. He notes, “Any multi-line small to midsize business looking to reduce operating costs associated with on-site systems should consider this service. With Cloud Communications, there’s no longer a need to purchase and administrate an on-site PBX system. The hardware and initial cost requirements are drastically reduced since the phone system is hosted off site. Cloud Communications also offers the opportunity to employ next-generation features such as mobility, multi-party video conferencing, instant messaging, screen sharing and voicemail transcription.”
