Innovative approach of MegaPath to VoIP solutions promotion
Megapath Inc. one of the US largest end-to-end communications provider, announced its limited-time free Cisco SPA 303-3 IP phone promotion. The business customers who acquire unlimited or Worldwide Hosted Voice calling plans and have at least five lines will be issued IP phones equipped with a high-resolution graphic display for each operator. This marketing innovation is the element of the second phase of MegaPath's post-merger integration, providing common products, pricing and advertisement in a company dedicated website.
As we informed earlier, forecasts from ABI Research indicates that the VoIP pool is set to double in size in the next five years, having more than $20 billion by the year 2015. In fact, by promotion of free phones, MegaPath is eliminating the last barrier to VoIP adoption - upfront costs. Company ‘’Speakeasy’’ (part of Megapath) successfully used similar promotional program earlier this year, which resulted in an increase in new customer inquiries by more than 40 percent.
"MegaPath's free IP phone promotion showcases the newest Cisco SPA phones designed for growing, tech-savvy businesses," said Bruce Chatterley, President of Business Markets, MegaPath. "With this offering, MegaPath is providing organizations with a free business-class phone for each of their employees and unlimited calling at a small business-friendly monthly price with no upfront costs."
MegaPath has a historical and productive relationship with Cisco, as the company has been providing Cisco-powered MPLS on US market and network-based solutions for more than 10 years. MegaPath is a Cisco Master Managed Service Provider (MSP) with voice and VPN certifications and small business specialists.
Moreover, MegaPath is putting the effort on enhancing the functionality of its VoIP Hosted Voice calling plans with new specific features for all voice customers. This consists of function ‘’Push to Talk’’: Point-to-point intercom functionality between two phones in the same group, which can be used with Instant Group Call to simulate paging functionality. Another feature is ‘’N-Way Calling’’: Enables a user to add up to 15 total call participants.
‘’Hoteling’’: enabling a user to log in as a guest on a host phone and use it as they would their regular desk phone. All inbound calls are transferred to the host phone, while all outgoing ones are monitored to come from the user's desk phone. ‘’Answer Confirmation’’: This is upgrade of function ‘’Simultaneous Ring’’ and ‘’Sequential Ring’’, making a user to prevent callers from leaving voice messages on personal cell phones when using Find Me/Follow Me features.
These features are free of charge. To take benefits of these new features, current customers can simply reboot their phones. MegaPath is also adding Instant Group Call, available for an additional fee, which allows users to instantly set- up a conference bridge for up to 20 telephone numbers. This feature is useful as an emergency line or for recurring team meetings. Instant Group Call can also be implemented in synergy with Push to Talk to simulate paging functionality. This VoIp phone is excellent small business tool.
