Daisy deploys VoIP product after building IP expertise into business with acquisitions
Daisy has launched a new VoIP proposition into its unified communications product portfolio as it starts to generate benefit from its recent run of acquisitions.
Daisy has been on a buying streak over the last 12 months, and said this has given it the “expertise and experience” to enter the VoIP market as an IP telephony carrier.
In February, Daisy acquired BNS Telecom which claimed to have VoIP traffic of 1.5 million calls per month. And in August last year it acquired IP reseller AT Communications for £7 million, which chief executive Matthew Riley (pictured) described as “further strengthening our converged product set and enhancing our offering to the UK business community”.
Daisy said customers can use its new VoIP system either in part by connecting a Daisy SmartBox to an existing telephone system or in full with Daisy’s hosted IP Centrex system.
Daisy will offer customers full on-site support and access to user and group-based call features, as well as new products such as call recording and fax to email. Daisy will also offer customers Polycom HD voice handsets, including IP Conferencing phones.
Daisy commercial director of system services Andrew Goldwater said advancements in technologies and products have made made VoIP a viable business tool and Daisy expects to take a large share of the market with its offering.
Goldwater said: “The transmission of voice calls over a dedicated high-speed broadband internet connection for small-medium businesses is now a reality and we expect to see widespread adoption.”
