Many small companies need a phone system that is not tied to one location. An integrated voice response system (IVR) that is a hosted IVR typically is the most economical. You have the choice of utilizing an employee to answer phones and route calls or use an automated attendant by way of the IVR. When someone calls into your place of business they hear options for common things such as directions and a list of employees. Being able to do this with an automated attendant, and route calls to a desk phone or mobile, plus allowing for faxes to be routed as well, all from one hosted solution you do not have to install is gold for the small business.
Virtual Phone Service
The RingCentral virtual phone system is a solution for mobile professionals, home offices and small companies. You can even add a 800 number as well to give you the same appearance of companies who spends tens of thousands on internal phone systems. I have purchased phone systems in the past for startups of 20, 50 and 100 individuals with the capacity to add even more lines. The setup, installation, upgrades and common problems that needed to be trouble shot with an on site service technician meant time spent away from the business. A hosted solution like RingCentral’s can alleviate all those issues as the physical system is not even at your office, they host it for you and take care of it. All you have to do is the administration of adding a new person etc.

Set up in minutes
Set up is non-existent, I am not even sure why they discuss it on the site. You either choose a new number (including 800) or just move over your current number. Done, setup done. Haha, amazing. Now it is time for the administration as you can answer calls on your current mobile phone, home phone, office, and your computer, as well as send / receive faxes.
