An avid chess player, Balaji NJL always thought five to six moves ahead while his friends were busy contemplating their next move. This trait of being a fore thinker aggrandized during his stint at Microsoft where he observed that customers using Microsoft Lync always required an on-premise Private Branch Exchange (PBX) and did not have easy means or the flexibility to integrate it with their telephone lines. His forethoughts spurred the inception of VOIP Connections, a firm developing customized Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services and solutions. “We are one of the early companies that started hosting Lync on the cloud which enabled our customers to do away with anything on-premise,” elucidates NJL, CEO, VOIP Connections. Today, the company is solving clients’ Cloud PBX needs, setting hosted Microsoft Lync with Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking, for both small and medium sized businesses.
According to NJL, “Most of the times, people do not realize that Microsoft Lync is not only a software product but also a telecommunication product.” Although Lync provides all the Unified Communications (UC) capabilities, if there is a fraction of second delay in the network, the calls start getting affected. Clients need experts to help them maintain a consistency in their network connections and this is where VOIP Connections’, with their explicit knowledge and experience with Telecommunications Companies (TELCOs) adds value. “We allay the clients’ pain points and let them reap the benefits of UC,” explains NJL. The firm’s solution offers Public Switches Telephone Connectivity (PSTN) and Direct Inward Dialing (DID) to Lync users without the requirement for any specialized hardware like Session Border Control (SBC), Private Rate Interface (PRI) and PBX to name a few.
Alongside, the company’s Cloud PBX solution which unlike the traditional phone lines is a phone system that works over the internet. Customers can easily talk to business partners on Lync anytime and anywhere using any device instead of being burdened with the excess capital required for set ups and equipments. For example, if a client in U.S. is in charge of sales in U.K, he/she does not have to move there. VOIP Connections legally forwards them a London phone number which facilitates the user to carry on with their business. “We are not merely providing UC platform. We are also creating applications on top of it and integrating that to the customers’ workflow,” says NJL.
In an instance, VOIP Connections assisted a CISCO call manager customer with a customized Cloud PBX solution. The previous solution that the company had was not flexible and was not integrated with the client’s Microsoft platform. VOIP connections facilitated the customer with real-time accounts and phone numbers and allowed the client to pick up calls from any location and even use it while travelling. It also saved additional maintenance cost, and within three months, the customer was able to improve business efficiency and add value to the organization.
Presently, VOIP Connections is working on extending its UC solutions to schools, recruitment arena, healthcare, banking and several other domains. Looking into the magic ball of the TELCO World, NJL anticipates that in the future there will be no phone numbers but a single Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)—a single point of contact for the entire life with the location of the user redundant for the caller. At the dawn such a day, “We want to bundle up our solutions according to the needs of our customers and be ahead in the market,” concludes NJL.
