Softphone

All our Hosted and onsite PBX systems support softphones:

Softphones are programs that run on computers (PCs or Macs) or Smartphones (Android or iPhone) and enable users to make and receive calls.

Voicelinx and Phones Correct will provide you with the connection details for any softphones you wish to use.

It should be noted that the quality of the call whilst using the softphone will depend on the quality of the network connection. It is recommended that calls are made and received over wifi or wired broadband connections as 3G mobile signal may be patchy.

Softphones that are currently availible on the internet include:

Case Studies

When Tough Mudder set up the London office, Voicelinx deployed a fully functioning phone system including voicemail to e-mail and conferencing within a day of Internet becoming available. We have 31 extensions in our London office. One of the major benefits of using Voicelinx is their personal attention and in depth knowledge this led to us installing a Polycom IP7000 conference phone which allows us to join skype calls into our regular conference calls.

AIA, the leading international service provider in cargo management, has 18 employees in four geographical locations. The requirement was for a flexible telephony solution at an affordable price, to be implemented within short period of time. The requirement for 20 DDIs (Direct Dial Inwards numbers) lent itself to VoIP with an IAX trunk. Voicelinx perfectly integrated four of our offices to use ‘one’ phone system, which made it very much cost effective.

Find a Future is an organisation which brings together the nation’s flagship skills and careers experiences: WorldSkillsUK Skills Competitions, The Skills Show, and The Skills Show Experience, to provide every young person with the chance to unlock their potential and get excited about the world of work. We have been using Voicelinx phone systems for over 5 years, across 3 different office locations, with over 100 extensions at times. The ease with which our telephony can be moved, expanded and contracted has been of great benefit to us. We also use Voicelinx for a disaster recovery solution – should our offices become unavailable for any reason.
