A cuddly retro orange C is the logo behind internet phone company, Conversant. Brewing for a couple of years now, the company’s mission is “to help medium and small business escape the tyranny of the big telecom providers”.
The new website launches Conversant into the sandpit with the big boys. The company offers virtual phone systems using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). VoIP is mainstream overseas and Conversant is aiming for a share of this market in NZ with its flexible packages. If you have many offices and mobile teams, Conversant says it can give you a better service than your current telco provider or PABX system. For businesses such as hotels, motels, serviced apartments, private hospitals or rest homes, Conversant has a room-service phone system to manage guests’ calls.
