A few days ago, I had the opportunity to be provided information and a demo of the new Vonage Pro℠. I was impressed with what the new service has to offer those of us who work from a home office. So much so, I wanted to provide some information which the staff at Vonage were good enough to provide to me. And just so you know, I am not receiving any money, prizes or free items from Vonage for doing this post.
Vonage Pro features five components that specifically accommodate the lifestyle of “prosumers,” or professional consumers who are comfortage with and understand the benefits of using technology to improve their personal and professional lives.
With Vonage Pro, You are Home…Away from Home
The offering includes a next generation Vonage SoftPhone client, Vonage Companion**, that allows the residential or home office user to access their home number from any desktop or laptop PC connected to a high speed Internet connection, enabling them to communicate as if they are at home.
Incoming calls ring both the customer’s home phone and their Companion, and customers can make outgoing calls on both devices simultaneously — essentially providing a second phone line.
Vonage Companion also offers customer requested features such as selective call block, conference calling, personalized ringtones and call recording.
Customers can use their PC’s built-in microphone and speakers or plug in a headset with microphone to make and receive calls.
Vonage Companion automatically synchronizes with Vonage Contact Center™
Home office users will never miss an important call when away on vacation or on a business trip.
For more information and a description of all the services and cost, you need to visit Vonage.
