What happens if my business loses the internet?

There is automatic fail over in place if your businesses internet is to go down. You can have calls automatically diverted to another office or mobiles. Many businesses also have softphone apps on their mobile, this means their mobile is a clone of their desk phone and so having no internet isn't an issue.

Is business VoIP expensive?

Your business may have come accustomed to paying more for new technology however you will be pleasantly surprised with VoIP when comparing it to traditional telephone solutions.

Can my business use our existing handsets?

It is possible to use analogue devices using adaptors, many businesses prefer to purchase IP phones to use on their VoIP network as they offer more features than a traditional landline phone.

Will my business need to change our number?

We can port your telephone number to the cloud meaning there is no need to change numbers. With a VoIP solution you can have as many inbound numbers as you require, which is great if you are looking to local numbers in areas away from your main office or running marketing/sales campaigns.

I asked 447 Services ​to quote for my telephone and broadband that has been with BT for the past 20 years, not only was the price significantly cheaper but the 447 Services ​team communicated fully with myself at all times to let me know exactly when and how the new system would be installed. This was all carried out in a very professional manner, I wish I had only known 447 Services earlier as I would have saved a lot of money over the past 20 years. I would highly recommend 447 Services ​to anyone.
