Companies that have already moved their email and file storage to the cloud should now also consider moving their phone system to the cloud. Moving to the cloud is not just about adopting a new technology platform but transforming the way one does business. Cloud computing is making huge waves in the business world, consumer cloud services such as iCloud, Google Drive and Dropbox have changed the way people think about digital content and how to use it. Cloud is fast becoming the preferred choice.
Unsuspecting VOIP customers are often surprised when they receive outrageous phone bills, especially when their telephone service providers do not explain the risks of toll fraud (PBX hacking). International fraudsters are constantly hijacking telephone systems and using them to place calls to premium charge-by-the-minute numbers.
If your phone provider doesn’t offer control mechanisms to help prevent fraudulent use of your VOIP account, you may want to look into using a different provider. Local telecoms provider Euphoria Telecom says international hackers are on the prowl, looking to hijack telephone systems and using them to place calls to premium charge-by-the-minute numbers.

A few years ago voice over IP was the rage; every company in the communications business was offering some VoIP service. The problem was that many providers did not do their homework properly which often resulted in a very poor quality of service, giving VoIP a bad name.
If you have a customer service department, a telesales team, or a technical support department, you already know that the old-school call centres require a huge up-front capital investment in on-site hardware and software. At Euphoria, we do it differently.

The future of superior, affordable, rich unified communications won’t be a minute. By Robert Barclay, Process Manager, Euphoria Telecom. How often have you heard a small business owner, friend, colleague or online forum contributor bemoaning the terrible quality or support of their network connectivity, Internet and telecoms services? All too often.
How to negotiate the pitfalls of choosing a provider and platform. Public cloud telephony is on the rise in small and medium enterprises. Companies in the five to 50-user segment (including distributed offices) are sold on the benefits of outsourcing the skills burden, upfront cost and risk of owning, maintaining and refreshing PBX equipment to a Cloud PBX VoIP provider.
South African retailers are so complacent about their Telkom bills that they seldom seriously consider alternatives. Headlong against this trend is the high-ranking national jeweller, Galaxy and Co, which will soon harness a hosted cloud voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) solution from Euphoria Telecoms to reduce telecoms expenses by more than R500 000 per year.
New wireless and fibre options can greatly improve reliability at good prices, says George Golding, MD of Euphoria Telecom. Businesses are increasingly dependent on Internet-delivered (cloud-based) IT and communications services today, including Voice over IP (VoIP). In such circumstances, reliable Internet is a must, or your business will simply grind to a halt.
Cloud PBX providers have a number of advantages over other voice-over-IP (VOIP) telephony providers that set them apart from the competition. To appreciate why, we need to go back seven years to understand the origin and current make-up of the VOIP landscape, and how it became a viable industry in the first place.
While a cloud-based (hosted) PBX might make sense for most companies, others will benefit from an on-site solution.
A major deciding factor is the level of control you need or want over administrative functions like configuration and upgrades – but in such cases there’s a trade-off – the high costs associated with the responsibility of managing premise equipment.
Organisations that still doubt the suitability of voice over IP (VOIP) for business must have missed the final act, in which VOIP grows up, gets the girl and drives off into the sunset in smoking hot reliable wheels.
George Golding was interviewed by Independent Newspapers for this publication in the business times featured in The STAR and Cape Times newspapers. Cheap and effective communication is vital in the operations of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A pressing concern noted by local and global businesses is the high cost of doing business in South Africa.
Reading your telephone bill can be a bit like watching a politician operate. You know something is amiss, but it’s hard to see what, exactly. While we cannot be of much help with politicians, we’re here to spill the beans on how your telco is billing you. Are you sitting down?
