Any IP phone below may be used with any User type above, except for the Softphone User and Office Device Connection which do not support an IP desk phone.
System Implementation & Operating Process
At POPP, we understand that small businesses appreciate full-service and the best value. Avoid the frustration and chaos of a self-service phone system installation and enjoy the added-value of a low-priced installation by experienced professionals. Your business communications are too important to consider any other way.
Our phone system installation goes far beyond just plugging in phones.
We help throughout the entire process, including:
We consult with you to determine the right configuration of hardware, software and features to fit your unique needs.
Our project managers are your single point of contact and cover every detail, from designing your call flows to porting your phone numbers.
You get free access to our team of specialists to assist with consulting, configuration changes, or adding and removing users, phones, and features.
Personalized Service – Live & Local
You get access to our local team of helpline specialists who can troubleshoot issues remotely or dispatch a technician to your location.
Office Data Network Upgrade
If your network isn’t ready for VoIP, you’re not going to be happy with any VoIP system.
When you choose our full-service installation, we go the extra mile to ensure your office network is ready to support VoIP and is capable of providing high-quality phone calls.
We install a SonicWALL firewall as a VoIP Management Device to create a VLAN with Quality of Service (QoS). This means you’ll have added security, and your phone calls have priority over any other data moving over your network to reduce the chances of poor audio or dropped calls. If you don’t have a firewall, or if it is outdated, our firewall will provide a layer of modern security for your business data.
Our managed Power over Ethernet Switches power your IP phones and devices and keep them connected at up to gigabit passthrough speeds.
Our Peace of Mind Guarantee
We believe upgrading your business phone system to take advantage of modern technology should be a simple, low-risk process.
If in the first 90 days there are functional problems with your POPP phone system that we can’t solve, we will:
- Give you 90 days to install a replacement system
- Refund PBX/user installation charges
- Charge only for monthly service and usage until the equipment is returned, plus and Time & Materials charges
- Dissolve the contract and be grateful that you gave us an opportunity to have served you
Have no fear – we have a No Pester Policy, and we don’t sell your information.
You’re one step away from free, insightful help with your office technology needs. You’ll be in touch with a local, experienced professional who will answer your questions, and there’s never any obligation!
