Engin has partnered with Harris Technology to offer hosted VoIP phone systems to small to medium businesses (SMBs) in Australia.
The partnership will see Harris Technology's retail stores offer Engin's hosted telephony systems using Cisco hardware.
Dubbed the Hosted Phone System, the offering bundles equipment, installation and support services, as well as broadband and phone plans.
According to Engin, the Hosted Phone System will save businesses up to 50 percent on telephony requirements compared to a traditional on-premise PBX.
Jack McKeon, head of business sales at Engin, said the upfront equipment costs are "minimum" and confirmed there are no maintenance fees.
The VoIP handsets are pre-configured by engine and can be plugged into existing switches and routers or an upgraded set as part of the Hosted Phone System offer.
The system includes features such as: call waiting, hold, transfer and forward; caller ID; 3-way conferencing; line hunt; voicemail to email; and free calls and transfers between branch offices.
"This is a great offer for small to medium businesses who want to save money on their telecommunications," said Eron Plumb, national manager at Harris Technology.
It will cost a business $41.50 per month in service fees to purchase the four handset package with four lines and up to 10 numbers. Additional lines cost $9.50 each.
According to Engin, the phone system can be "easily expanded" by adding handsets. Customers can also have handsets at multiple sites with no extra charge.
Three introductory plans are offer for customers.
Offer 1 - Phone system with 4 Cisco SPA502, 1-line handsets for $752 (switch and router extra).
Offer 2 - Phone system with 8 handsets (including 2 executive Cisco SP504, 4-line handsets) for $2,122.
Offer 3 - Phone system with 12 handsets (including 2 executive handsets) for $2,874
Free installation and ongoing support is available for all Engin Hosted Phone System purchases made before 31 March.
Furthermore, as part of the introductory offer, customers receive a $50 credit per handset on any phone plan.
