All in for $199 one time cost? For many businesses, the answer is a resounding YES! That price not only gets you the hardware and software for the PBX but also includes a 4 concurrent call license (Std 4). 4 concurrent calls can potentially support up to 16 or more users depending on their call volume. To do a quick comparison, purchasing a full sized server or appliance plus extension-based licensing for 16 users is going to run well north of $1,000. And a 16 user system hosted will reach that $199 cost in the first 2 or 3 months.
Powering your PBX is something that also needs to be considered. With the low energy consumption of the IOP, cost savings will be seen on your electric bill as well. And even if you choose one of the pay-for licenses, Vodia’s unique billing options allow these costs to be broken out over time—semi-annually, quarterly or even monthly. So with no upfront commitment or contract, there is little to no risk.
