1. Ooma Office

Ooma Office is an established provider of affordable, customizable business VoIP plans at competitive rates for small businesses. Their packages don’t force businesses to sign up for services they won’t use; thus maximizing savings while optimizing budget.

Ooma Office makes connecting existing landline phones easier by offering analog telephone adapters (ATAs). You can also integrate paging systems, hardwired intercoms and paging systems into your VolP system using these adapters. Ooma provides preconfigured hardware to reduce setup time and costs for smaller teams; you can manage call logs and voicemail using mobile apps so you don’t have to open up phone apps just to gain access important details regarding calls or messages that have come in.

Ooma provides numerous VoIP business phone features to help you manage calls and provide better customer service. For instance, its ring group module lets you route calls from multiple extensions in sales or customer service departments simultaneously to reduce unanswered calls; or its hold solution allows customers to place calls on hold with representatives or agents listed as available representatives or agents displayed to customers on hold lists; additionally Ooma lets you customize caller ID greetings and on-hold music accordingly.

Ooma Office also features an innovative mobile calling feature that allows you to seamlessly transfer calls between your work phone and personal mobile device, so that when out of the office you can still make and receive calls with your Ooma number without purchasing another phone. However, some cellular network operators may prohibit VoIP usage over their networks or charge additional fees when used with Ooma numbers.

Overall, Ooma’s business phone system is easy to set up and intuitive for nontechnical users to learn to use, making it a good option for small businesses with limited resources and low daily call volumes. Unfortunately, its platform does not support video communications tools like Zoom nor provides bulk discounts for large organizations purchasing user accounts in bulk quantities.

2. Zoom

Zoom is a business VoIP provider that lets you keep your own phone number while connecting calls directly to the cloud – eliminating the need for traditional PSTN lines and saving money on monthly bills. In addition, Zoom provides numerous features including call recording, voicemail management and video conferencing that make its services extremely valuable.

Zoom offers various pricing tiers, with their Enterprise plan catering specifically to large businesses with at least 100 hosts and boasting benefits like unlimited cloud storage and a dedicated customer success manager – it even supports 500 people simultaneously in a conference call!

Integration between Zoom and other software such as Salesforce, Slack and Google Workspace makes communication with different teams and clients much simpler. Unfortunately, its recent popularity has led to “Zoombombing”, or sending unwanted messages during a Zoom call.
