TouchTone Launches Sip Trunking Voice Solution

TouchTone Communications, a provider of voice, data and VoIP solutions, launched a new unlimited local and long distance SIP trunking phone service called BusinessFlex.

SIP technology enables locations to allocate unused call capacity across an enterprise, and multi-location businesses can share voice trunks across several sites. Subscribers can purchase as many, or as few, trunks as they need to match their communication needs. Trunks can be added and removed as needed saving both time and money.

BusinessFlex is a SIP trunking communications solution aimed at allowing businesses to simplify, consolidate, and manage their voice services and costs. It provides unlimited local and long distance calling anywhere in the Continental U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, and the U.S. Virgin Islands for as low as $27.99 per SIP line/trunk.

Interestingly, customers who wish to use this service will not be put under any contract term, said the company. TouchTone describes its new BusinessFlex VoIP solution as a perfect key for higher-volume customers who already have high-speed Internet and an existing phone system, and who are looking to replace their traditional phone service or T1/PRI.

“SIP is easier to understand than you think, and offers tremendous income potential," Hosein Babai, VoIP services manager at TouchTone said in a statement.

“It’s an especially lucrative addition for phone vendors because it’s an easy up-sell. They’re already selling the equipment, so why not sell the service too," Babai added.

Standard features include BTN with E-911 and Caller ID/Name, one DID per SIP trunk, and many other enterprise features. Customers have the ability to add DIDs, 411 directory listing and assistance, toll free numbers, business continuity/disaster recovery, and port additional numbers.

TouchTone started off as a small start-up company in 1993 only selling residential long distance and has since grown into a full service voice, data and VoIP provider currently serving residential, enterprise, government and wholesale customers across the United States. The company recently celebrated 20 years of personal service and commitment in telecommunications. In 2012, the company teamed with Zultys to deliver a fully integrated SIP trunking solution to business and enterprise customers.
