BT Cloud Voice

Having a phone system makes good business sense.

It means you can make the most of every opportunity by getting the right people talking.

But wouldn’t it be great…

…if your phone system was so flexible, it made managing your communications a whole lot easier.

Introducing BT Cloud Voice.

It’s a phone system.

That’s hosted in the Cloud.

And connects to your phones wherever you are, whenever you want.

Cloud Voice makes managing your calls easier.

It does everything you’d expect from a phone system and more – thanks to the cloud.

So, you can get your customers through to the right person…

 …or forward calls when you know you won’t be available.

If you’re dashing in and out of the office you can set your desk phone and mobile to ring at the same time, so you only have to give out one number.

You can carry on using your existing business numbers, or even add numbers with different UK dialling codes to give yourself a local identity wherever you are.

You can also use our app to turn your smartphone or laptop into an extension of your desk phone.

And use them to make calls over the internet, using your office number.

We’ll give you your own web portal so it’s easier to stay in control wherever you are, making Cloud Voice work how you want it to.

It’s easier to manage your costs too. For a start, you can say goodbye to some of that hardware in your office.

Which means your upfront costs will be lower.

And you don’t need to worry about maintenance or upgrade charges.

Because you can give exactly the right number of users the features they need.

You’ll only ever pay for what you use. A predictable amount each month.

Even if something unexpected happens and people can’t get into the office.

It’s easier to carry on as usual because the system is in the cloud.

So you can re-direct your calls..

…and stay focused on the jobs at hand wherever you are.

In fact, Cloud Voice finds adapting to change as easy as pie.

So whether your business grows and you open a new office.

Or you need to employ more staff.

Cloud Voice will change with you.

Multiple sites are no problem, either.

So, if you’ve got a site down South.

Another office up North.

And a couple of colleagues at home,

Everyone can get on the phone and use Cloud Voice.

It’s only available from BT and we don’t share our platform with anyone else, so you can relax knowing that we’ve got everything covered.

From making sure you have...

 ...the right internet connection.

To delivering great clear calls, no matter how many people are online.

To our dedicated Service Hub team, on hand to support you. It’s easier to keep your business talking whenever you need them.

In fact, with so much to benefit from..

…It’s no surprise that thousands of businesses just like yours…

…are taking advantage of everything Cloud Voice has to offer.

Find out how easy it is to keep your business talking with BT Cloud Voice.

Choice of regional phone numbers

With BT Cloud Voice, your numbers aren't tied to your local area. You can choose local numbers from anywhere in the country for your users, wherever they’re actually located. So if you have a team of regional sales managers all based at your head office in Birmingham, you could give the manager for the north west, a Manchester number; the manager for the south, a London number; the manager for Wales, a Cardiff number, and so on. You can give the impression of being local to your customers without having to open a local office.

We can help with any requirements you may have. When we confirm your BT Cloud Voice order with you, our sales advisors will assess whether a new LAN, new hub or new cabling would be needed, and talk through the prices and benefits of upgrading.

FAQs

Do I need a fibre connection?

Not necessarily. The speed you need depends on how many people will be using the system. You may only need a broadband connection. We’ll check everything when you call us before you place an order.

What’s the ideal connection for BT Cloud Voice?

While BT Cloud Voice can be supported on any connection with sufficient bandwidth, we recommend our leased line or business fibre broadband. Here’s why:

  • When you get your leased line or fibre broadband and Cloud Voice service from us, we’ll do the legwork to make sure everything works perfectly together. And you’ll only have one supplier to work with.
  • We’ll make sure your calls get top priority over your internet traffic on our connections, so you’ll always get great quality calls.
  • Our internet connections come with built-in security and 24/7 monitoring to make sure you stay safe – and stay connected – at all times.
  • Our network has ultra-low latency which is vital for making the most of voice applications like Cloud Voice. Better still, it’s guaranteed by our service level agreement.

See our guide to getting the most out of BT Cloud Voice for more information.

BTnet leased line 
With BTnet, you don’t share your bandwidth with anyone else. So you get exceptional speeds, with ultra-low latency, all backed up by our market-leading 100% target availability service level agreement. 

Superfast business fibre broadband 
Our Superfast business fibre broadband gives you the extra speed to help your business succeed. It gives you download speeds up to 76Mbps, backed by our Business Smart Hub, 4G Assure, built-in security and 24/7 IT support.

Do I need BT Business Broadband to use BT Cloud Voice?

No, as long as you have sufficient bandwidth you can use BT Cloud Voice. We can discuss your current set-up when you talk to us about VoIP. If you’re looking for a new broadband connection, we can find the right package for your business from our comprehensive range: standard broadband, fibre broadband, or BTnet leased line.

What’s the difference between BT Cloud Voice and BT Cloud Phone?

BT Cloud Phone is a fully configured, plug ‘n’ play system for small businesses. Users all access the same set of features.

BT Cloud Voice is designed for the larger business (5 users and above). Self-install but with an engineer install option, along with cabling and LAN options. Users access individually-tailored features. 

How do I access the BT Cloud Voice portal?

The BT Cloud Voice portal is what you use to manage your communications features and settings from anywhere - and any device - that's on the internet.

Visit the BT Cloud Voice portal.

Am I going to compromise on quality?

No, the call quality is the same as with a standard phone. Your callers won’t know the difference.
