Vodia Conference Room – A Scalable Cloud PBX Call Center Solution

For conferences, the Vodia cloud PBX enables users to plan in advance for scheduled conferences or to pull together at a moment’s notice for ad hoc conferences – recording on-the-go and scheduled conferences are both available. Let’s look at the functionality and behavior the PBX provides users.

The Vodia multi-tenant cloud PBX is a carrier-grade phone system for telephony cloud deployments, so you can easily create multiple tenants. Connect your existing SIP hardware devices and register to your favorite SIP trunk provider by using our pre-configured SIP trunk templates. It’s easy to deploy the Vodia multi-tenant PBX in a call center environment: all you need is a routable public IP address and a virtual machine. Call centers around the world trust Vodia to provide them reliable voice communication services.

The Vodia cloud PBX used hunt groups are used to distribute inbound calls to agents, typically for simple, low call volume groups. The PBX calls the agents up in stages, making it possible to escalate calls to more and more extensions. If the call doesn’t get picked up, it is ultimately sent to a programmable destination, such as a mailbox, another group or an external number. Incoming calls are processed as they come into the system and placed in a queue.

Rashid Jamalalldeen of Real Telecom Talks about Why The Vodia Phone System Works for Him

Our customers actually started with us, let’s say 400 calls, about 400 calls a day. Five years later there are 3000 calls per day. The reason for that is we applied Vodia functionality to various parts of their organizations and captured all the call records that transacted through the system, and we analyzed, for them, to find the source of the calls, what areas geographically, and thus the customer was able to focus their resources in servicing those areas, reaching many more patients and many more doctors.

VODIA AND HEXIS CONSULTING ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP

“Our company has been using 3CX for all our client phone systems before I got here. It has been nothing short of an absolute nightmare,” said Liz DelSignore, DTM, PCM and Technician at Hexis Consulting. “Since switching to Vodia, once the initial set up is complete (whether multi-tenant or single tenant), it has been a much more pleasant experience. Support is always there for you when you need them, and they genuinely will do everything possible to help your MSP. Being a pretty small MSP ourselves, that matters a lot – to both us and our customers. We recommend Vodia to literally every MSP that even asks about VOIP and PBX now.”
