IP Office provides small, medium and large enterprises a complete telephony system capable of supporting collaboration software and business communication technologies.

In layman's terms, the flexibility of the IP Office caters to all flavors of a telephone system- a.k.a., you can have your cake and eat it too without anyone knowing the wiser. This system has data capabilities built-in, providing routing, switching and firewall protection between LAN and WAN (LAN2).

In addition to basic telephony services, IP Office offers both traditional phone and soft phone options. Soft phone options make remote working possible with a seamless connection between desktops and mobile devices. This system combines flexible solutions with a budget-friendly system to ensure that your communications solutions optimize both customer and employee satisfaction.

Improves Employee Productivity
Keep employees connected with an integrated system using one single number. Seamless communications allows employees to use any mobile or home phone number as an office phone extension. Encouraging work-life balance prevents loss of productivity caused by unforeseen circumstances like illness.

Saves on Costs
IP Office has on average 25% lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than comparable solutions. Reducing TCO is a product of staying current with the latest updates for the most scalable, cost-effective solution. Relying on a built-in conferencing bridge saves on third-party conferencing systems. Self-service phone directories reduce spending on additional people on staff. Making the move to the cloud outsources IT complexities and costs and provides pay-per-use model for greater financial flexibility.  

Empowers Customer Engagement
With call routing and self-service phone directories, your customer gets through quickly to the right person. Implementing a multichannel communications system enhances your customer's experience allowing them to utilize whichever platform best fits their needs- think website forums, social media pages, etc. On top of improving customer satisfaction, IP Office supports reporting tools used to gauge how well your business is supporting its customers.

Avaya IP Office Platform offers much more than traditional business phone systems. Partnering with Avaya, Ronco Communications stays in the forefront of sophisticated communications systems- because we understand the value of a vendor and the imperative nature of keeping people connected.
