Enjoy the value and certainty of our Flat Chat included call plans with the confidence that the flexibility and features included with SoftPhoneApp makes no compromise with reliability and security.

• In the event of a power outage, inclement weather, or a major disaster in your area, your operations can continue without interruption. With the SoftPhoneApp mobile apps never miss a call on your smartphone or tablet.
• SoftPhoneApp carrier grade infrastructure is underpinned via our Tier 1 data centre partnerships. Multiple, carrier diverse uplinks to the key, best of breed telecommunications providers in Australia ensures the reliability of the platform.

Lower overall costs and increase ROI.
• Eliminating on-premise PBX hardware reduces initial capex as well as the long-term, hidden costs of maintenance and expansion.
• The simplicity of SoftPhoneApp means there are no “sunk costs,” so you’re spared the expense of specialised IT staff or outside vendors. Legacy systems require onsite support for everything from troubleshooting to adding new extensions, and manufacturer-specific training is required to service these devices. With SoftPhoneApp you can manage the entire system online.
• The intuitive user interface of SoftPhoneApp allows user to easily modify powerful features such as call handling, voicemail, greetings, and much more without IT assistance.
• Understanding your bill, particularly when SoftPhoneApp, is combined with our Flat Chat all-inclusive call packages has never been easier. One, easy to read bill for all of your business communications.
