HUNTSVILLE, Ala., July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, announced the release of the latest version of the award-winning cloud-based Unified Communications service, Switchvox Cloud 6.0, now available with a new low-cost metered option. The introduction of the new metered offering significantly lowers the cost of hosted cloud communications and will appeal to a much broader base. With a more flexible pricing structure, this new offering is targeted at customers that have much lower usage patterns but still want the capabilities of a business class phone service.
"Switchvox Cloud's new, lower cost, metered offering starts at $12.99 per user, per month, reducing the barrier to entry for customers looking to migrate to cloud communications," said Channing Hinkle, product manager for Switchvox Cloud. "Companies with variable call volumes, due to seasonality or other events, can save money by paying for only the minutes they use. It's the perfect complement to our current Switchvox Cloud unlimited minutes offering for users with more consistent call volumes."
The latest version, Switchvox Cloud 6.0, is built on the most advanced open source communications platform, Asterisk 13, allowing for better performance and more efficient call handling. Switchvox Cloud 6.0 introduces a complete redesign of the award-winning Switchboard that further enhances the user experience with updated call control and call visibility widgets. Switchvox Cloud 6.0 also includes enhancements to its already powerful administrative tools, making Switchvox Cloud easier to manage, including customizing and sharing Switchboard layouts and optimizing contact management.
"The release marks a milestone in the evolution of Switchvox by leveraging the capabilities in the latest version of Asterisk and the ongoing contributions of the Asterisk community to introduce new, powerful features," said Adam Kramer, product manager for Switchvox. "Switchvox Cloud 6.0 enables the use of a new, real-time engine that opens the door to more advanced integrations such as Salesforce.com and other CRM tools."
Switchvox Cloud 6.0 is now available in a new, metered service plan starting at $12.99/user per month, in addition to an unlimited minute plan starting at $29.99/user per month.
