Almeida & Carlson Insurance Agency Picks Votacall's Hosted VoIP Phone System

January 16, 2013

Many companies are now looking out for ways to cut their large monthly expense on on-premise phone systems and traditional MPLS solution.

One such company is the Almeida & Carlson Insurance Agency, which has switched to Votacall’s fully managed Hosted VoIP phone system to deliver the necessary functionality in a cost effective manner across its corporate landscape.

The company, which is serving the insurance needs of individuals and businesses throughout Southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, previously used on-premise phone systems at each location connected by a traditional MPLS solution. But the company was looking out for a solution that would be cost effective without sacrificing functionality, and after a thorough evaluation the company has adapted Votacall’s fully managed Hosted VoIP phone system.

"The Votacall Hosted VoIP PBX (News - Alert) allowed us to have the necessary features and functionality at a reduction of nearly 50 percent in monthly telecom expenses," said Sean Peacock, executive at Almeida & Carlson. "With Votacall, we not only benefit from a reduction in expenses, we also get the peace of mind that our phone system is future proof and because it is a fully managed service, we can concentrate on our business while Votacall focuses on our telecommunications."

The Votacall Business VoIP Service is a fully managed IP Phone (News - Alert) System that delivers cloud-based enterprise features and functionality at the lowest total cost of ownership. The company makes sure that the functionality is rapidly deployed regardless of geography and without the capacity constraints or capital expense associated with legacy on-premise PBX hardware.

"With Votacall Hosted VoIP, our company is protected from equipment failures, power outages and disaster scenarios. In a competitive market like insurance, that is a tremendous value to our organization," adds Peacock.
