Rogers Unison converged phone system expanded to all Canadian businesses

14 Oct 2016

Canadian quadruple-play cableco Rogers Communications has announced the expansion of its Rogers Unison converged business telephony service to medium, large and public sector organisations, having launched the service earlier this year to small businesses across the country. The managed IP-based Unison solution offers the features of a traditional phone system across multiple devices including mobile phones, VoIP desk phones, laptops and tablets, all synced to one phone number. Rogers claims that Canadian small businesses have already saved ‘hundreds of thousands of dollars to date’ via the Unison solution, and Nitin Kawale, president of Rogers’ Enterprise Business Unit, made the following claim on the newly expanded service: ‘Our medium and large business customers want a solution that offers the right device for the right employee, and Rogers Unison delivers on this need by offering a solution that connects a workforce, whether employees are in the office or working remote. We can deliver these outcomes to customers because we aren’t tied to selling legacy phone systems like those of other providers in the market [referring to PSTN operators such as Bell Canada/Aliant, Telus, MTS and SaskTel – although TeleGeography notes that these telcos are on a transitionary path from traditional PSTN to IP-based platforms]’.
