Nashua Mobile targets VOIP market



Nashua Mobile has expanded its product offering with the introduction of its EasiVoice offering. EasiVoice offers a range of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) business solutions designed to help companies of all sizes to drive down their telecommunications costs by offering them cost-savings on all types of calls.

Says Tim Walter, general manager for product and marketing at Nashua Mobile: “With the uncertainty surrounding the regulation of mobile termination rates in South Africa, the time is ripe for businesses of all sizes to migrate onto VOIP solutions to achieve cost-savings in their telecommunications environments.””

‚With VOIP solutions in place, companies will be able to save money on cellular calls, as they did with least-cost routing solutions in the past, as well as achieve significant cost-savings on calls to local and International fixed-line numbers,”” says Walter.

‚The voice communications account forms a significant chunk of most businesses’ operating costs,‚ adds Walter. By adopting VOIP, they can make across the board savings on calls to most destinations without needing to make any significant capital outlays.

Nashua Mobile’s EasiVoice solutions are competitively priced, with three packages catering to businesses of different sizes:

· For smaller organisations, EasiVoice Business offers five 087 numbers and up to R600 off calls per month, for a monthly subscription of only R500 on a one-year contract.

· EasiVoice Enterprise, for mid-sized and larger businesses offers R11,000 of calls and twenty 087 numbers for R10,500 a month on a 12 month contract.

· EasiVoice Enterprise+, a 24-month contract billed at R10,000 month, includes twenty 087 numbers and the first R11,000 off calls.

In all cases, customers have the flexibility of choosing between per-minute and per-second billing.

Per second billing is as low as R0,35 per minute for local Telkom calls, R0,50 for national Telkom calls and R1,35 to cellular numbers.

Calls are billed per minute at rates as low as R0,29 to local Telkom numbers, R0,41 to national Telkom numbers and R1,10 to cellular numbers. On-net (Nashua Mobile VOIP to Nashua Mobile VOIP) calls are billed at R0,13 for per second billing and R0,08 for per minute billing.

Walter says that VOIP offers businesses a host of benefits in addition to the cost-savings it delivers. It is flexible technology that allows companies to deploy their voice and data services on a single converged network.

It makes it simpler to provision and move extensions around than it is with an analogue PBX as well as more cost effective and simpler to maintain networking infrastructure.

‚We make it easy for companies to procure both mobile and fixed voice as well as data solutions from one company that can present them with a single bill for all these services each month,‚ says Walter.
