A Nebula IP PBX has enabled ABD Travel to drastically reduce international roaming charges and increase the productivity of staff. With the use of Wi-Fi enabled handsets resort staff can log in to wireless networks and make calls as if they are in the UK office cutting out most long distance call charges. Head office calling the resort staff also saved as it was still just an internal call. This represented a saving of over £600 per month or £3,000 per year. Additional users for resort staff are only subscribed to the system for 5 months and then the subscriptions put on hold until they are needed the next year.
This solution was implemented without the need for expensive VPNs and using soft clients on existing supported handsets.

Nebula IP allowed PrintFaster to dramatically change communication across the business. By opting for a hosted PBX all of the sites became part of the same virtual office and where able to call each other internally. Rather than just one line per site new IP handsets meant that larger offices could have more lines to cope with customer demand. Nebula’s built in IVR cut out any forwarding costs and allowed customers calls to always be answered.
