We focus on bringing you modern hosted ip telecom solutions that provide your organisation with a flexible and low-cost approach to telecommunications which fits with today’s business environment.

Our aim is simple. To transform the way businesses communicate with a single communications platform that meets the demands of every employee, regardless of their location or the device they use – whether that’s a PC desktop, a laptop, a telephone over an ip network or a mobile device.

Our cloud-based solutions deliver a range of feature-rich telephony and unified communications to your business. Costs are on a predictable, scalable, pay-as-you-use basis. You can keep your phone number when you port over to a voip solution.

We can help you to improve the way you communicate with your customers. I, increasing collaboration and ensuring maximum productivity from every member of your team.

The way we work and also run our businesses has evolved significantly. The smarter businesses are far more mobile flexible than before – with people working from home, in the office and on the move. They are far more customer focussed; looking to differentiate by being accessible and responsive to clients, and they are far more agile; scaling up and down in response to market conditions and reorganising the workforce to maximise productivity.

The key benefits of this approach are:

Reduced Cost

Hosted Telephony

This is what our customers are asking for:
Fixed & Mobile

We currently have two phone systems – the desk phone and the business mobile. We want a solution where desk phones and mobiles complement each other – the mobile should enable business communications to extend beyond the office and be an integral part of the telephony solution.

Multi-Location

We have people working from home and multiple other offices but we do want a single phone system. When a customer calls, we need to be able to connect them to the right person regardless of which office they are in or indeed even if they are working from home.

OPEX Not CAPEX

We want to pay for what we use month by month as and when we use it. We we want business communications to be an operating expense and not a capital expenditure. What’ is more, we want to be able to add and remove users in increments of one as and when our business needs change without penalties. We also want to avoid large upfront cash expenditure outlay.

Flexibility With Low Maintenance

We want need the flexibility to deploy new users, change things around and alter the way calls are routed, but we do notn’t have the technical resource to manage this. We need a partner that can make this happen as part of the service they offer.

An Intelligent System

We need our phone system to have some level of intelligence, play announcements, allow people to select who they want to speak to and route calls to that person based on their current location, i.e. the right phone in the right location. The call quality is second to none.

Advanced Connectivity Services

Improve your experience by connecting your business to the outside world.

Boldfield can help you to take advantage of new ip telephony services designed to connect your business to the outside world and improve your experience.

Many organisations are still heavily reliant on simple broadband. However, with the increasing volumes of data that users need to access, the move to Cloud services and the growth of applications such as Voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) many institutions are finding that a simple broadband connection is not good enough.

With that in mind Boldfield now offer a range of advanced connectivity options. These include Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC), Ethernet First mile (EFM) and Leased Lines.

FTTC

This is a new sort of broadband offering higher speeds than a typical standard broadband connection. Throughput speeds are normally higher as there is a fibre optic connection from the exchange to the street cabinet nearest to your premises.

EFM

Uses a different principle with Ethernet from your premises to the BT cabinet but with no guarantee that there will be a fibre optic beyond that point.

Leased Line

A leased line means that there is a a guaranteed fibre path all the way. Leased lines come with Service Level Agreement’s (SLA’s) so you have some re-assurance that the service will offer the advertised bandwidth and will be highly reliable. With a leased line, there is no “contention” meaning that the line is not shared with anyone else.

One thing to add is that most broadband services are asymmetric – meaning that the bandwidth you have coming down from the exchange to your premises is higher than the bandwidth you have going from your premises to the telecom network. That is perfectly fine when the line is used for internet browsing etc but for some applications a synchronous service is required.

The availability of these services is not universal and depends on your location. Talk to Boldfield to find the best option for you.

Boldfield has the expertise to deliver these services, what’s more we are best placed on these services because of our extensive IT knowledge. In the past IT and Telecom have been regarded as somewhat separate. Nowadays, there needs to be a close marriage between IT and Telecom to make the overall system operate to its potential. With the rise of cloud services. Voice over IP, distributed working and Office365 it is now imperative for many organisations to consider IT and Telecom as a singular system. Most telecom providers have no way of determining the capacity required by the various interworking elements of the IT system.

Our services are tuned to your needs and prices are highly competitive, contact us for more information.
