There are a number of plans offered to both small businesses and larger enterprises or contact centers. Prices are dependent on your business’ needs and are available upon request from an agent either by phone or through the website.
Small Business Plans
Ideal for small companies with 1 to 10 employees. You have MiCloud Business’s standard features including mobile twinning, hot-desking, and intuitive web-based administration.
Business: Extension Only
Extension Only enables a drop-in, four-digit extension number extended from the main MiCloud Business system. Outbound calls incur small charges.
For businesses that need the applications from MiCloud but don’t necessarily need unlimited calling time. Bundles are available and going over these will incur charges.
Contact Center Plans:
Comes with ACD and Contact Center functionality features. Advanced features are available when agents are not logged in as ACD’s.
Extension Only With Voice Mail
This plan is the same as the extension-only setup for small businesses, but includes voicemail. Voice mails can be retrieved through the MiCloud Business system or through the voicemail to email service.
Offers unlimited local and long distance calling plans. Features include mobile twinning, hot-desking, corporate auto attendant, voicemail to email support and contact dialing.
Supervisors have access to all the features available to Advanced and Agent users with the added benefits of silent monitoring, real-time queue monitoring and historical reporting.
Mitel’s customers are given simple and effective customer support and solutions. For support there is one number to call, and you are directed through to the correct person quickly. New customers are given one person as their individual point of contact to help through setup and initial use of the product.
Mitel looks at the business needs of entire companies, rather than simply looking at one area. The integration aspects of the communications system are advanced but remain easy to use. Having a single point of contact during setup is a really helpful way to get you started and introduce you to the product. Mitel definitely ensures you get the most from their VoIP business solutions, whatever size your business may be.
About the Company
Mitel was founded in 1972 and is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada. It has offices, partners and sellers worldwide. Mitel was responsible for designing one of the earliest PBX attempts—it tried to create a service unifying office voice and data control. The company has survived and reinvented itself with international investment from conglomerates such as British Telecom and Schroeder Ventures.
