Unified Communications


Services Overview



  VNS branded VoIP handsetSelecting a business telephone phone and voicemail system is similar to selecting an insurance company, you demand reliability, security, and most importantly, the knowledge that your investment is a sound one.  There are many solutions out there, but very few will grow and change to meet the needs of your company.  Our network-based voice over IP (VoIP) solutions allow customers to leverage their existing data infrastructure for voice functionality.  We support full-featured solutions from partners like Cisco CallManager Express (CME, IPCC), Avaya IP Office, Mitel, Covad/GoBeam, Polycom, and Plantronics.  And because VNS has been selling and recommending VOIP-based phone systems since 1996, we've helped our customers future-proof their businesses as new IP-based communications technologies and applications become commonplace.  For example, unified messaging has existed for years, but the new version of Microsoft Exchange Server features integrated support for Unified Messaging (UC).  Imagine having all of your communications, email, SMS, mobile phone, fax and voicemail in one place, that is the promise of unified communications!  We can also help you deploy fully integrated CRM and VOIP solutions, so that when your customers call, you know who's calling, based on their caller ID, before you answer, and can have their customer record on your screen.  And as Fresno's leading Microsoft Gold partner and Cisco Premier partner, VNS has the staff and experience to help your business successfully deploy these types of solutions.

VoIP Expertise and Experience

Although VNS has experience installing and supporting traditional circuit-switched telephone solutions (ie: Panasonic, Toshiba, NEC, Comdial, Avaya Partner & Magix, etc.), we strongly recommend that our customers looking at upgrading, replacing or buying new consider VoIP based solutions in order to future-proof your investment.  As businesses search for new ways to cut costs, increase efficiency, and enhance their competitive advantage, they are increasingly choosing to move their phone systems to VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol).  Businesses can not only significantly reduce inter-office toll rates and consolidate infrastructure costs with VoIP, but tools that are often implemented in conjunction with these systems, such as unified communications, presence software, and automated attendant features, can appreciably boost employee productivity. Furthermore, VoIP systems can make companies more competitive, for example, by facilitating collaboration, which enables them to bring products to market more quickly.

Some people still mistakenly believe that VoIP is an unproven technology, intended for home users and hobbyists only, and nothing could be further from the truth.  VoIP is no longer "bleeding edge" technology, proven sales growth in VoIP and most industry experts agree that VoIP-based telephone system sales will soon overtake traditional phone solutions as the predominant "phone" technology for new system installations, and every major phone carrier has either deployed, or is in the process of deploying a VoIP-based backbone.  Although business telephones have traditionally not been provided by computer network integrators (VARs), that is changing because of the necessity of having a solid grasp of network and security issues in order to properly deploy a VoIP based telephone system. 

Because of this changing landscape in telephones, VNS made a commitment to begin working with, and developing expertise in business-class VoIP-based phone systems and computer telephony from the beginning.  We felt certain that business telephone systems would eventually become part of the computer network and slowly but surely, we've been proven correct over the last several years, as the industry has began morphing.  This has allowed us to develop invaluable experience with this technology. 

On-site or Hosted VoIP?

While deploying VoIP onsite is popular among small businesses, you may wish to test the technology first using a hosted VoIP solution. VNS can help determine the right solution for your needs.
