Onepath today announced Cloud PBX, a unified communications service “for companies that have an urgent need to support increasingly decentralized employees.”
“SMBs across industries are facing the challenge of supporting employees who have been forced to work remotely due to the coronavirus,” the Onepath announcement says. “With many states and cities reopening and some employees returning to the office, the challenge increases, as companies must find a way to connect workers in a wider variety of locations.
“SMBs have limited financial and technical resources as compared to larger companies, making them more vulnerable during this transition. Over the past few months, many SMBs have had a difficult time providing remote workers the tools they need to be productive,” the announcement says.
“Under ‘normal’ circumstances, a lack of access to basic tools such as fax and phones might stunt an SMB’s growth. In a pandemic, the impact could be devastating,” according to the company announcement.
How Cloud PBX Helps SMBs
The Cloud PBX unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) solution is designed “for SMBs confronting coronavirus-induced challenges,” the Onepath announcement says.
Onepath Cloud PBX “offers everything a worker needs to do her/his job remotely or from the office, including the ability to receive and transfer calls and manage voicemails as if using an office desk phone, secure document sharing and storage, and video conferencing and screen sharing,” the announcement says.
Onepath Cloud PBX can be deployed to WFH and office environments in two or three days, is offered in three flavors – Engage, Accelerate and Optimize – and starts at $99/month.
“This is all about helping companies adjust to the new normal as far as supporting workers wherever they are,” said Onepath senior VP Brian Kirsch in the company announcement.
“With Cloud PBX, SMBs can get up-and-running quickly with integrated call, fax and collaboration capabilities, with zero hardware requirements, and companies can easily add users and sites without needing to purchase additional infrastructure,” he said.
“We think it’s a slam dunk for any SMB, and we look forward to helping companies transition smoothly to the new normal,” said Kirsch in the company announcement.
