simplecall business announces 'business phone scrappage scheme offer' to SMEs

28 January 2014

LONDON - simplecall business, a subsidiary of Zamir Telecom, is a non-governmental entity that announced today a new offer, called the 'business phone scrappage scheme,' whereby businesses can 'scrap' their old phones and upgrade to modern IP telephony for free with no upfront costs.

The upgrade, which can add up to as much as £5000 worth of free hardware, comes with a guarantee of lower monthly telephone bills and added functionality to increase office productivity. Any business with a monthly bill of £200 or more can qualify for the scrappage scheme.

This unique business offer is the first of its kind in the UK. simplecall business Director Saif Ahmed said that he was inspired by the mobile industry. A long time ago, people were required to buy their mobiles outright. However, today, almost everyone gets upgrades for free - so why is that not the case with business telephony?

"This is just the next logical step in business telephone systems," Mr. Ahmed said. "Upgrading isn't only beneficial because offices are guaranteed to save on their monthly bills, but they also can significantly increase their productivity and ability to communicate with customers. It's a no risk scenario – get free hardware with no upfront costs."

Some of the added functionality of the upgrade includes:
  • Voicemail to email
  • 3-way calling
  • Missed call list
  • Record of caller ID
  • Call conferencing
  • Music on hold
  • Scheduled call-routing
  • IVR (customers self-select from menu to reach desired department.)
  • Smartphone landline app (international use, local tariff.)
