Low cost Office set-up with Cheap / Free Phone system
Until recently, to get your company communicating with itself and the rest of the world you needed a reasonable investment in the building phone lines, cabling linking the offices and a server.
Today you can run a business with many people using an Internet service over just one phone line.
Whether you are a traditionalist or a modernist, or somewhere in between we can help get the mix of features that is right for you.
Phone Lines The cheaper option
With Internet VoIP SIP telephone services many conversations can happen at the same time via a single Internet connection, be it ADSL or cable. The people calling you phone a standard UK landline number e.g. 01242 621621 but it comes into your office via the Internet not down a normal phone line in the traditional way.

Save money on Cabling
This is running the wiring from the comms cabinet where the phone system and the data switches sit which connect everything up. At just £60 per point it might not seem much but with everyone needing at least two sockets, and with printers you can soon have a bill of £1740* for an office of 10 people.
Fast Internet Access
For reliability we would recommend at least two Internet connections from different ISPs with as little in common as possible. One service via your BT exchange (but not from BT) and the other from cable (Virgin Media) is perfect. Rather than wasting one as a back-up, these two connections would be used simultaneously, effectively doubling your Internet speed and providing continuity of service if one failed.
Cheap / Free Phone System and Phones
Then add 10 Wi-Fi phones (£135 each) gives you a phone system and phones for £1570 (plus configuration).
*Traditionally those 10 people would have about 24 cabled points £1440 add to that a 24 port data switch (£300) giving a traditional infrastructure cost of £1740, that is all money saved.
So a Wi-Fi office effectively gives you a FREE Phone System and FREE Phones.
