Colt Technology Services has announced it will launch its Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service for enterprises in the region starting in April.

The company will offer an all-in-one solution combining PBX functionality, IP phones and remote access connectivity to the office.

The service is aimed at alleviating customers from the need of purchasing their own PBX. Instead customers will use the PBX system installed within Colt's data centers in exchange for a a small upfront cost and monthly fee.

Calls made using the service within the same organization will be treated as internal extension numbers and be placeable for free.

Numbers provided by the company will be able to use the full set of PBX features including call transfer, hold and conference calling.

“Cloud computing is already a standard in today’s IT environment. This reality also applies to voice communications, including telephony, that are indispensable to corporate business,” Colt CCO for Asia Kenji Hioki said.

“With this service, Colt is dramatically reducing the cost of acquiring PBX and corporate telephony, in turn reducing the associated maintenance and overhead expenses that come with a communications network spanning multiple sites.”
