Hosted Telephony Services

We support your cloud-based hosted telephony system and help save your business money online rental, installation and maintenance. A hosted telephony system has many advantages – it can work across multiple sites and can integrate mobiles and other devices.

Get in touch

Hosted Telephony, sometimes known as Hosted VoIP, is a Unified Communications solution that does not use hardware based in your business premises.

This means that your business telephone system is hosted in the cloud instead. You make and receive calls using IP handsets, mobiles or other devices, and the voice traffic is carried over an internet connection which in turn is connected to a data centre sitting within the cloud.

Benefits of moving to a hosted telephone system include:

  • Disaster Recovery

    With hosted telephone solutions, you are protected in the event of a disaster. Calls can be redirected to any location or any device as long as you have access to the internet. So if one site goes down, it can still be business as usual for staff and customers.

  • Scalability

    Hosted systems work on a pay-per-licence basis. This means scaling up your operations is as simple as purchasing new licences.

  • Unified Communications

    A main reason for embracing Hosted Telephony is that it is a perfect enabler of Unified Communications, which means you can combine several different forms of communications such as data, voice and video across multiple devices and get them working in unity as a single solution. This makes your workforce more mobile, adaptable and competitive.

Control

Businesses that prefer the idea of removing physical hardware from sites and managing equipment remotely are rapidly moving towards this form of telephony. Hosted Telephony is also perfect for companies that don’t have a PBX in place and are looking for a minimal capital outlay. In addition, having your telephony hosted in the cloud means no physical maintenance issues related to an on-premises PBX. It means an easy-to-manage system which is often provided as a fully supported service should you need extra resources.

Flexibility

No matter how your employees choose to work – from home, from their mobile device, from the office, via hot-desking – everyone will be able to connect to your hosted business communications solution easily and flexibly. Staff can access all the tools that office-based employees have access to, such as IM, Voicemail, Email, Video Conferencing and much more. Your mobile workforce can adapt to new business scenarios quickly and without interference to their working day.

    Be more productive and collaborative

    All the features and productivity-boosting applications available with an on-site PBX are also available with a Hosted Telephony solution, including call transfers, pick-ups, diverts, hunt groups and much more. Configuration is easy and quick to carry out. Staff can collaborate easily and efficiently and in a number of ways, depending on their working patterns.

    Lumina Technologies Hosted Telephony solutions are managed through a digital platform that offers huge flexibility and great scalability, enabling your staff to work remotely on any device and from anywhere in the world.

    You will also have the assurance of business continuity, as we will always find a way of working around a problem to keep your hosted telephony up and running. The system is connected to your computers’ IP addresses, which enables us to diagnose and fix problems remotely – in the same way that we can ‘take over’ a computer in order to repair it – meaning no time is lost in doing so.

    Cost savings on phone calls are another advantage of Hosted Telephony. Internal calls can take place with different offices worldwide, also allowing for easier communication between teams. You can also take advantage of the cheapest deals on international calls, however many providers you would like to involve. And we can program your system to automatically go through the provider of choice as soon as the country code is entered.

    We worked with Lumina on a GDPR Audit. Richard was knowledgeable and professional throughout, and did the best he could to bring a dry topic to life through lots of real life examples and analogies. We were so impressed with the service Lumina provided and the value we got from partnering with them on this project – we couldn’t recommend them enough.

    Hawkstone Management Services Ltd is a small company for which IT Outsourcing is realistically the only viable option. Lumina Technologies have successfully performed this role for over fifteen years. They also provide innovative solutions to keep pace with technological progress. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lumina to similar sized businesses.

    Richard and his team are a real inspiration to anyone who meets them and I have watched Lumina’s growth over the last few years with interest and admiration. Richard has been an amazing supporter of the Hospice of St Francis, being a Gold member of the Corporate Partner Network for almost two years. He takes an active interest in the community and is passionate about his company and his town: nothing is too much trouble, he is always willing to help, to give up his time and to provide business advice when asked. Lumina is an inspiration to any company wanting to set up business in Hertfordshire.

The service provided and intellectual capabilities are outstanding and we would highly recommend Richard and his Lumina team.

    It has been a great pleasure working with Lumina Technologies over the past two years. They have fully committed to being involved in the local community with volunteering and with professional advice and commitment, helping many local charities along the way. As a growing company it proves that being involved in the local community is helping them attract and retain a talented workforce and I look forward to working with them well into the future.
