Vocalocity Demonstrates 12 Minute 24 Second Installation of VoIP Solution

True Plug and Play System Allows Micro Enterprises to Set Up Service in Less Than 15 Minutes

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - With the recent hype surrounding new small business VoIP systems that are dubbed as simple to deploy, Vocalocity actually proves that micro enterprises can obtain a full-featured voice communication solution that is not only affordable but is truly as easy to set up and administer as e-mail.

As the leading provider of hosted VoIP services to businesses with less than 20 employees, Vocalocity offers a trouble-free and straightforward approach to the often complicated process of installing and running a phone system. Beyond the purchase of standard IP phones, there are no boxes or appliances to install, maintain and ultimately upgrade.

The concept of voice communications as a service is becoming very appealing to the small businesses, according to a recent AMI-Partners study. North American SMB hosted VoIP market spending, the study found, was nearly $165 million in 2005 and is predicted to pass $1.5 billion by 2010, at a compound annual growth rate of 56.8 percent.

Vocalocity's solution instantly improves the efficiency of the micro enterprise while allowing businesses to realize a monthly cost savings of up to 80 percent over traditional phone services with flat rate pricing and no hidden fees. Small businesses often discover that some VoIP offerings only include hardware and no actual service or minutes.

Vocalocity continues to demonstrate how quickly a business can implement a hosted solution. A "Mythbusters" style video validates the claim that the right hosted solution can be set up in less than 15 minutes -- 12 minutes and 24 seconds to be exact.

"With the equipment completely managed by a hosted VoIP provider, small businesses and micro enterprises don't need communications or computer knowledge to set up and use such a solution," said Phil Hill, President, Vocalocity. "Our preconfigured phones are usually mailed to a business. All the business owner needs to do is plug them into the network, like a PC, and the phone system is up and running."

A hosted system takes the pain out of installing an on-premise solution. Additionally, such an approach requires no capital expenditure for equipment beyond the cost of the phones allowing a business to be up and running for an average cost of $150 per employee compared to $400 to $500 per employee for an on-premise phone system. However, micro enterprises gain a full set of voice communications tools from Vocalocity including auto-attendant, voicemail to e-mail, follow me roaming, music on hold, simultaneous ring, conference calling and call queuing.
