Switchvox is the Smarter Choice for Your Next Phone System

Deploy How You Want

Switchvox can be deployed in multiple ways, each with the same all-inclusive feature set. Simply choose the deployment method that is right for your organization to get the most out of your communications system. If you are looking for a hands-off phone system that doesn’t require an IT staff and fits into an OpEx spending model, choose Switchvox Cloud. If you prefer complete control, a larger user capacity and a CapEx spending model, Switchvox on a dedicated server is the way to go. If you are already running your business in a virtual environment, Switchvox software will easily fit into your existing systems.

Saves You Money

Unlike other proprietary systems, Switchvox gives you more value for your purchase. With all features included, multiple deployment options, less add-on fees, and a simplified pricing model, Switchvox is the best value in UC.

Easy to Manage

An intuitive point-and-click interface allows you to manage every aspect of Switchvox from anywhere you have Internet access. Empower your employees to manage their own status and voicemail boxes. You can easily view the “who, what, when, and where” of your business calls using Switchvox’s extensive features, which can be accessed directly from your desk phone or Switchboard.

Choose the Switchvox Solution that’s Right for You

With Switchvox, you can ensure your business communications investment is protected. Because all deployment methods incorporate the same software, you can easily migrate from a Switchvox Cloud installation to a Switchvox premise-based solution should you decide the hosted solution no longer fits your particular business needs. Most importantly, when moving from Digium’s cloud-based solution, you maintain all of your settings and phones, making it a truly seamless transition for your

employees. With Switchvox, you have the flexibility to grow into the phone system you need in the future.

Switchvox can also be deployed in a virtual environment using the power, scalability and disaster recovery tools available with VMware. Virtualization eliminates the need for a dedicated appliance and provides small and medium-sized businesses with a phone system that is able to meet the needs of an enterprise at a fraction of the cost.

Protect Your Investment

Stay up-to-date with all new software releases

The Platinum subscription plan from Digium gives Switchvox On-Premise customers access to all the latest software releases as well as 24/7 US-based support.

Digium Phones Designed Exclusively for Switchvox

Digium phones are the only phones designed exclusively for Switchvox. Offering the tightest integration possible, these phones incorporate plug-and-play installation—saving you time.

Extend your Switchvox system to your desktop phone with built-in apps or build your own apps with an open API. You can customize your complete communications experience whether you’re in the office or on the road.

With all features included, Digium is recognized as the Best Value in UC Phone Systems.

“SMBs are expected to continue to retain a cautious approach to spending, and their UC decisions will be shaped not only by business process and communications improvements, but also by hard cost factors (like costsavings). This means some SMBs will take a more evolutionary approach to UC as they leverage existing investments in phones or communications infrastructure instead of migrating to UC suites in a single leap.”
