10 Good Reasons to move to the Cloud with ATEL

March 24th, 2014 by admin

Virtual Desktop – What is it? First, we will calculate what it costs you to install, manage and maintain workstations (computers) for all your employees. This cost, according to industry statistics, runs about $75.00 to $90.00 per month for each employee using a computer. It includes the cost of electricity to run a computer 24 hours a day (most computers never are shut off) and the cost for software licenses and upgrades to software and repair and replace broken equipment and so on. Now, imagine eliminating the PC tower and hard drive and just keep a monitor, keyboard and mouse connected to a Thin Client (little box) that connects each user to the cloud. The best part is there are no workstations and every employee has a tablet (iPad, Microsoft enabled laptop or any other WiFi enabled device) which can then access the internet in some form. Their desktop (PC Desktop) exists in this Cloud World and is accessible from work, home, or any mobile environment you choose. You control the access and email is hosted in the cloud so you eliminate the problems of your Exchange Server or if you have a PoP email account now all emails are managed by one company.

The Many Benefits of Hosted Phones

May 19th, 2017 by admin

With so many features available through hosted phone systems, we understand that some people are torn. On the one hand, additional features provide more tools for improving productivity, while on the other hand they require more training and can lead to more complicated processes. Still, we believe that the benefits more than make up for the short time it'll take you to adjust.

Call features that will make phone calls easier include:

  • call recording using standard MP3 format
  • push to call for a modern-day intercom
  • call swap between devices
  • simultaneous ringing connects to all of your set up devices
  • 14 way conferencing replaces frustrating conference bridges

In addition, you can easily set up a back-up plan for emergencies. This way, customers and vendors can still reach you even if the office is closed for snow, hurricanes, tornadoes - you name it! Your callers see you as reliable and you can keep business going even during a disaster. Work from home or while on a business trip with easy mobility solutions. Receive voicemail messages through your email, so they're simple to access, save, and share. You can even take advantage of cutting-edge voice to text software!

But enough about the benefits. ATEL Communications can advise you on the best solutions and applications to suit your business needs. Take a look at our catalog of hosted phones and be sure to let us know if you have any questions.
