The flexible choice for the modern business

BT Cloud Voice is a virtual phone system hosted in the cloud, so no more hardware or maintenance (we do that for you). The clever bit is that all your calls are made over the internet. You just need a BT Business internet connection.
It's got all the features of a traditional phone system but it also lets you work from whatever device you choose. And that's from any location, in or out of the office, as long as you're online. Calls are crystal clear, it's more flexible and it's more cost efficient. In business terms, it's a win-win.

Great reasons to choose BT Cloud Voice

BT Cloud Voice is super-useful across a range of tasks. You can talk to colleagues for free wherever they are using the cloud, redirect your calls when you're out of the office and manage your calling features from any device, anywhere, using the online portal. It has more sophisticated call features like call recording, call centre, and audio and web conferencing that you can add for anybody who needs them.

Here's a rundown of the top reasons we think it's so nifty:

  • Manage calls more effectively
  • Be more productive; your people can receive and make calls when out of the office more easily
  • Control your costs by creating a bespoke package for each user
  • Get market-leading products you can trust with BT Business
  • Future-proof your business, scale up as you need to
  • Get peace of mind with our UK-based, dedicated BT Cloud Voice expert team
  • Manage your entire voice estate in a single solution

  • Work anywhere and maintain a professional and local image using BT Cloud Voice

    With people travelling around a lot, it can be difficult to give a professional and local impression. But with features like geo-numbers and conferencing you can work together from wherever you are, and still appear local to your customers.

  • Customisable features for each user with BT Cloud Voice

    With BT Cloud Voice each person can have their own set of features, so you only pay for the ones you need. And adding and changing users and features is easily done through the online portal.

Download the guide here
Basic Connect Collaborate Further information
Online Portal
Self-service online tool where Administrators can set up User profiles, and individual Users can control their own call management features.
Automatic Call Routing
Automatically redirect incoming calls to another phone.
Call Forward
Set up rules that forward incoming calls to another phone: all calls, calls when your line is busy, or unanswered calls.
Call Transfer
Transfer calls to any other number.
3-Way Calling
Set up a three-way conference call (including bringing someone in to an ongoing call).
Hunt Group
Multiple phones ring on the same number so anyone in the group can answer it (and, with BT Cloud Voice, the group members don’t even need to be on the same site). You can set it up to ring the phones in the group in sequence or all at once.
Call Director
Set up one or more fixed or mobile phone numbers to use as virtual extensions to your Cloud Voice profile, which you can then use to dial in to your Cloud Voice service when you’re not on your regular phone. When you make a call with this, through the Call Director portal, your call carries its BT Cloud Voice Calling Line Identity (CLI) rather than the number of the phone you’re actually dialling from.
Voicemail to Email
Using the BT Cloud Voice portal, email voicemail messages to your Outlook (as WAV files).
UC Business Optional
UC Business is a bundle of functionality including the UC Communicator application for desktops (Windows and Mac) and Smartphones (iPhone and Android). Set your availability or ‘presence’ status and see the status of your contacts. Get in touch with your contacts using instant message, phone (using ‘click-to-call’ from your desk phone), or video calling. Contact lists are easy to create and manage.
UC Team
Same as UC Business but with audio and web conferencing for up to eight people, which uses the ‘My Room’ feature to easily manage team or group meetings (including a simple ‘click to join’ conference bridge, group chat window, and desktop sharing).
Hot Desking Optional Optional
When you associate your BT Cloud Voice account with a ‘host’ device for a certain time, the device will use your phone number, features, and settings. So when you’re at a hot desk, all your incoming calls will route to the phone at that desk, and your outgoing calls will carry your number as their Calling Line Identity (CLI).
CRM Connect Optional Optional
CRM Connect integrates your Cloud Voice phone system with your CRM software. It means the customer’s information is automatically displayed on your computer screen at the same time that the call comes through. You can see their call history and other details on a screen pop then use click-to-dial to transfer the call or start a three-way call (if required).
Receptionist Console Optional Optional
Reception Console helps you manage incoming calls professionally. Use directory look-up and line monitoring to quickly find someone to handle the call. Call management features, including ‘mouse drag & drop’ call transfers, help increase the productivity of your receptionist, who can be located at a different site to where they’re transferring to.
Toolbar Optional Optional
Integrate the BT Cloud Voice Toolbar into Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, and Firefox so it’s even easier to make, answer, and control calls, click-to-dial, and change settings.
Busy Lamp Field Optional Optional
Use the Busy Lamp Field keys on your IP phone to see when colleagues’ phones are idle, ringing, or busy. You can also use it to pick up ringing calls and to auto-dial your colleague when you want to speak to them or transfer a call to them.
Call Recording Optional Optional
Record and store calls for up to 180 days (including encryption and start-stop recording when receiving credit card details).
Fax Messaging Optional Optional
Receive a fax and email it, along with your other messages, to your message store.
Call Centre ACD Optional Optional Optional
Distribute incoming calls to multiple agents from a single central phone number. It sounds a bit like hunt groups but there are a few differences: 1) Calls are queued and it is possible to give intermittent ‘comfort’ greetings. 2) As agents log in and out of the queues, when an agent isn’t available the call will not ring at their phone. 3) Agents don’t have to be co-located on a single site, which is a unique feature of BT Cloud Voice.

FAQs

  • Is this right for my business?
    BT Cloud Voice offers more functionality and flexibility than a traditional phone system: it’s simply the next level of communication systems.

    It’s suitable for any business, but particularly so if you’re:
    • A single-site business with multiple lines that you want to move onto VoIP, or add extra capacity using VoIP
    • A business with home or mobile workers who need lines and want to make free intra-company calls over the internet
    • Based on a single site and are considering replacing or buying PBX functionality, but don’t need hardware and want to make the most of your IP network
    • Spread over many sites, and would like standard service across all of them and for your home workers
    • Using the cloud for data backup and storage (taking your calls to the cloud is an easy next step)
    • Wanting to reduce your CAPEX.
    Am I going to compromise on call quality?
    Absolutely not.

    We prioritise voice on BT Broadband and BT Infinity to ensure you have crystal clear calls and a rich HD voice experience. We recommend BTnet for customers who have a high internet usage, and where the phone is at the heart of their business. BTnet Leased Line provides fast internet access that doesn't slow down during busy periods. You don't have to share bandwidth with anyone else, so you get the same download and upload speeds all of the time, making it ideal for voice and data.
  • Do I need to be in a fibre-enabled area?
    Not necessarily. With our BTnet solution you can have a leased line instead.
    Could I just use the new BT One Phone service and get the same features?
    The BT One Phone system combines your fixed lines, mobile phones and phone system into a single hosted solution. Calls are carried over the BT Mobile network, and the dedicated mobile network installed in your premises.

    It suits businesses with a high number of mobile workers, as it routes calls to mobile and landline numbers to a single mobile phone.

Want a more mobile-based solution?

BT One Phone can make sure your calls are always answered, so your customers don’t hang around or hang up.
