New Look & New Plans at Phone.com – All Good Things for Customers!
Phone.com rolled out a whole new look and feel to their website over the weekend. We have to say that we definitely like the new look! It is much more streamlined, and makes it quite a bit easier for customers to find what they are looking for. You can now easily compare available plans and features by plan and group.
Phone.com also revamped their services, and added two main components to their set of plans. The first addtion is a group of plans under a service they are calling Home Office. The Home Office plans will most closely match up with plans from RingCentral’s Office, VirtualPBX’s Flat Rate service and Nextiva’s Office. Even though Phone.com has always provided unlimited minutes plans to compete with RingCentral Office and VirtualPBX, we felt the previous pricing was extemely confusing and how the unlimited minutes plans themselves were configured was even more confusing. This greatly simplifies all of that.
Pricing for these Home Office plans starts very competively at $34.88/mo
($29.88/mo if paid annually) for:
- one local and one toll free number
- 300 floating minutes and one unlimited minutes extension
- plus all the features of their hosted pbx system
- Get Your First Month Free when you sign up!
These plans can be customized to meet specific needs – like adding additional unlimited minutes extensions, adding additional phone numbers, or adding optional IP Phones.
With Phone.com’s new Home Office plans you can add additional unlimited minutes extensions(users) for $21.88/mo without a local number or $25.87/mo with an additional phone number. This makes the pricing extremely competitive to RingCentral Office and VirtualPBX’s Flat Rate Plans who are both $39.99/month/user.
The second addition they’ve made is a high-end plan called Enterprise that provides:
- a discounted package price of $99.88/mo($94.88/mo if paid annually)
- includes six business phone numbers – from which you can select toll free or local numbers
- a set of four base IP Phones
- unlimited minutes
- and Phone.com’s fully featured virtual pbx system
What makes the Enterprise plan so appealing is the fact that you get a base set of IP phones included in the price, along with 4 users, and potentialy a local number for each of those 4 users – depending upon how you decide to allocate your six phone numbers. Again this plan is also expandable as your company grows by adding users, phone numbers, IP phones, etc.
