Digium Enables SMBs to Deploy New Cloud-Based Phone System with Zero Down and Zero Risk

Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced the Digium IP Phone Rental Program for Switchvox Cloud hosted phone service. Ideal for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), Digium’s program allows Switchvox Cloud customers to more affordably implement an advanced Unified Communications (UC) phone system by eliminating all upfront hardware costs, including the phones, and combining all services into one, low monthly bill. Additionally, Digium is introducing a free trial offer that lets customers experience Switchvox Cloud with Digium IP phones, completely risk-free. Potential customers can evaluate the hosted service for 30 days with no money out of pocket.

Launched in March of 2013, Switchvox Cloud is the hosted version of Digium’s premises-based business phone system. Switchvox has long been known as the best value in UC and the company has experienced significant growth in its cloud-based product offering. Digium IP phones, when coupled with Switchvox Cloud, provide the most tightly integrated user experience in the industry. Designed and manufactured by Digium, the phones are built specifically to integrate with Switchvox and Asterisk, providing a greater level of flexibility and customization for users.

“Digium engineered the phones from the ground up and built the best phones for Switchvox and Asterisk. We deliver a robust, unique feature set and unprecedented customer support unmatched in the UCaaS industry,” said Mark Amick, director of product management for Digium. “The new rental program allows customers to deploy a world-class phone system with a zero capital investment, substantially lowering the initial cost of entry into a new system.”

Digium has also launched a 30-day, risk-free trial offer for Switchvox Cloud. Unlike other trial offers, Digium’s risk-free trial gives customers the ability to experience the full power of Switchvox Cloud without a financial commitment, making it an easy decision to test drive a new system. Customers are provided with five user extensions, five Digium D40 IP phones, and a toll free number to help evaluate the service.

Digium’s Phone Rental Program and the 30-day risk-free trial will be available in the lower U.S. 48 states on February 3, 2014. For more information about these programs and Switchvox Cloud, go to www.digium.com/switchvoxcloud.
