CCSI’s New Partner for Business Communication Solutions
As an SMB ourselves, CCSI understands the issues unreliable phone systems cause and with so many available options, how do you choose the best system and know you’re getting a great price? We’ve been there. And, although we’re eager to partner with value-driven vendors, few make the cut. Back in 2016, after years of issues with an outdated phone system, we chose and implemented a new communication solution through Sangoma. With 18+ months of hassle-free, improved communications and actual cost reduction, CCSI agrees that Sangoma delivers the industry’s highest quality, IP business phone solution. We’re so impressed with our results that we decided to partner with Sangoma and extend the same quality and cost saving benefits to our own customers.

Enterprise Level Business Communication Solutions at Entry Level Costs – Endless Options and Elementary Implementation. – CCSI Staff
Being that we are an actual tried and true Sangoma IP Phones user, we are able to extend our experience and give a true list of benefits. Here are some of the actual benefits we’ve received since making the switch…
Ease of Deployment – Supports DHCP provisioning and/or PnP provisioning, which is very useful in tightly locked down networks such as our own. Also supports redirection service for remote staff which is very beneficial as it allows phones to be automatically provisioned as soon as they are plugged into an internet connection regardless of their location in the world.
Security – Built-in security mechanisms and monitoring as Sangoma is aware of the growing vulnerability of toll fraud caused because many IP phone vendors simply rely on MAC address validation, which means hackers can pretend to be that phone and create toll fraud and cost your business a lot of money.
Maintenance – As businesses grow or consolidate, new employees arrive or change roles, resulting in the need for IP phone settings to be constantly updated. Sangoma IP phones can be quickly provisioned from a central location so that the administrator can eliminate the requirement for traveling onsite. This is beneficial when adding new employees to a group or adding an entire department and groups of phones. Also, the ability to quickly validate phone settings and update firmware and security on a global and granular level
Feature Rich – Just one of the many features we’ve utilized is PhoneApps, it allows users to control functions and settings directly from the screen of their phone. Apps conducive to increased productivity as they’re user need specific (I.E.: the Presence app to quickly change their availability across all their endpoints and the Login/Logout app to jump from any phone in the office or other locations on their network, instantly pulling in all preferences and custom settings) PhoneApps are included with all Sangoma IP Phones and connect seamlessly with your FreePBX or PBXact phone system.
Cost Reductions – In place of copper wires, VoIP providers use an Internet connection to send phone calls. With traditional telephone service, phone calls are made up of analog data which need to be sent over physical copper wire connections. This requires a fairly complex national telephone infrastructure so that packets of analog data can travel from phone to phone.With VoIP, your phone calls are made up of digital data. It’s easy to send digital data over a long distance without losing any call quality entirely over the Internet. Your VoIP provider uses connections between Internet protocols to transmit the data. This is a cheap and easy mechanism for transporting data, which means that VoIP providers are able to pass their savings on and our bill is has been cut into over 3/4 of what it once was!
End User Control – Unique web-based dashboard for every user. This eliminates the need to contact IT to configure or enable features, freeing up more of their time and also allows our business manager features like checking call queue stats or changing time conditions. Users are empowered to manage and control their own features by logging into UCP from any internet capable device and have access to things such as:
- Voicemail: listening, delete, voicemail-to-email, and recording voicemail greetings
- Follow-me: enable/disable and add phone numbers
- Conference: Create unlimited conference rooms, manage live attendee, and administrator level conference room features
- Presence: manage your presence across all your devices
- Device management: customize the applications and features of your desk phone
- WebRTC phone to make/receive calls and SMS with your colleagues…and the list goes on
