BT announced the launch of BT One
Voice anywhere, its next generation voice application service, in the US.
The service offers flexibility for
global travelling employees by allowing them to take their telephony with them
via a softphone and use speech to text voicemail translation.
One Voice anywhere helps to
significantly reduce spend on mobile roaming costs through access to the
corporate virtual private network (VPN).
BT One Voice anywhere couples technology from the acquisition
of Ribbit with the One Voice global VPN service, extending the benefits of the
VPN to users anywhere, using any device, including SIP phones. This delivers
unified communications and collaboration (UCC) capabilities to all users
regardless of legacy environment and can help significantly reduce call
charges, with even more cost savings for roaming charges.
Using the BT One Voice VPN, One
Voice anywhere helps reduce mobile spend for businesses with employees who
travel internationally by extending organizations’ phone networks. Users set up
their preferences so when a call is received, it is routed over the One Voice
VPN network, saving toll costs from local service providers or mobile roaming
“Mobile phones and smartphones
are increasingly used for business voice calls. Costs can increase because
businesses are charged as employees roam, retrieve voicemails and accept
incoming calls, especially for international travellers,” said Neil
Sutton, vice president, Portfolio, BT Global Services.
One Voice anywhere can integrate
with new IP based platforms as well as older TDM systems and allows a
transparent, feature rich, fully managed and integrated UCC environment.
This helps leverage existing investments and drives down additional
costs. In addition, One Voice anywhere is delivered from the cloud, and is
embedded in the enterprise grade VPN solution, so there are no heavy upfront
investments or on premise equipment required.
BT is launching One Voice anywhere
in the US market first to meet the needs of multinational customers.
