Hosted VoIP provider AccessLine Communications has launched its SmartVoice Service in the Pacific Northwest, selling it largely through its distributors.
SmartVoice targets SMBs combining local, long-distance and toll-free services and does not require additional phone equipment. It is available in a number of Oregon and Washington cities.
Most of the new Internet Protocol telephone services require a business to take the risk of simultaneously changing both its phone service provider and its data service provider, said Kent Hellebust, chief marketing officer for AccessLine, adding that most services also require companies to buy new equipment. With SmartVoice Service a company can keep its e-mail and Web providers, yet immediately start saving 30, 40, up to as much as 50 percent off its current legacy phone bills.
