Versature asks the question, "Is it time for Emily to retire?"

Looking for big business features at prices small business can afford? Don't ask Emily! Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor OTTAWA, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(CCNMatthews - May 15, 2006) - If you're a small business owner in Ontario or Quebec, you know what it's like dealing with the local phone company. Frustration, High prices, Long-Term Commitments, and Emily - the phone companies attempt to save agent's time at the expense of your own. Emily just might be the most hated woman who doesn't exist, and we suggest there's a better way to get high-quality phone service, for less money than you're paying now. It's a revolution in Small Business communications, and at the end of the day, it just might force Emily to consider retirement.

Versature uses your existing internet connection to provide reliable, high-quality phone service using a technology called VoIP. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is revolutionizing the telecommunications industry. It enables digital voice signals to travel over the internet as data packets, allowing organizations to make more effective use of broadband Internet while also saving money. Ottawa's Versature Corporation, a company focused on the research and development of innovative business technologies, is helping businesses of all sizes to take advantage of VoIP today.

Versature's President, Paul Emond, notes that small businesses in particular have a great deal to gain from this technology, which makes formerly expensive features, such as multiple employee extensions, automated attendants, integrated email and voice messages, much more affordable. In addition, VoIP offers great savings on long-distance phone charges, since staff in different locations, whether across the country or around the world, can place calls to one another over the Internet, thereby avoiding long-distance charges incurred when placing the same call over traditional networks.

"In addition to the cost savings, bringing voice and data together on one network simplifies a business's communications infrastructure while expanding its access to services," says Emond. "Unified e-mail and voicemail messaging and the ability to place and receive calls anywhere there is a broadband internet connection are two of the most popular services that VoIP puts within reach of small businesses."

Versature, along with its sister company, TechSupport, founded by Emond in 1993, uses the very products it sells. "We investigated this new technology several years ago when our most senior technician was moving to Chicago. VoIP presented an ideal, creative way to keep him connected and allow us to continue a very effective working relationship," says Emond. "It's really easy to present this solution to small business customers when we can offer ourselves as proof of concept."

"We have been delighted with the initial response to our VoIP product. We help customers prepare their business case so they can see how much they are going to save, particularly with our usage-based fee structure. Our VoIP offerings are flexible and scalable and you'll never need a service call to add or remove users. If you are relocating, you simply move your Internet service then take your phones and phone numbers with you to the new location," adds Emond.

Versature makes the benefits of VoIP even more accessible because it offers its business communications platform as a hosted service. This means you don't have to purchase, install or maintain on-site equipment to run your phone system. You simply subscribe to the service, plug in the phones, which can be purchased or rented, and concentrate on running your business.

An added bonus for business travellers is that Versature also provides soft phone support which enables you to make and receive calls via your PC or a WiFi device and appear as though you are calling from your office.

Versature's formula appears to be pushing all the right buttons. "Sales have taken off quickly for this service. In the past 2 weeks alone, we've signed up six new customers ranging in size from two people to twenty" notes Emond. If your business is moving, thinking of replacing its PBX or you want to seamlessly connect remote workers to your phone system, Versature can show you how simple and cost effective it can be.


In Versature's world of HOSTED COMMUNICATIONS, you never have to worry about outgrowing your system, paying for unused capacity, or waiting for a technician to make an expensive system change again. Versature is leveraging the power of Voice Over IP (VoIP) to change the way Small Businesses receive and pay for their telecommunications services. Versature was built from the ground up as a solution exclusively for small business. From our 611 Helpdesk support to our rent-to-own phone program, Versature GETS small business.
