Nextiva REVIEW - Why go with this VoIP provider?
Three main reasons: Big cost savings, enhanced productivity and enhanced customer experience. For the first time in history it's possible for a small to medium sized business to offer customers a phone experience equivalent to a fortune 500 company. With the advent of cloud technology, this experience is economical for the business and with the integration cloud technology provides, it also enhances business productivity, further reducing costs and streamlining integration.
Nextiva has won more than 30 Independent Technology & Telephony Awards, including being named "Product of the year" by Internet Telephony magazine for three years in a row. Nextiva was also named as one of the best places to work by Phoenix Business Journal. I especially like to see that because a company with a healthy work environment is a company that knows how to provide good service. The support and tech staff do their job with greater good will and efficacy because they are being treated with respect themselves and they like where they work.
Nextiva has also managed to do the right thing environmentally, while keeping their pricing competitive. In addition to internal recycling steps taken around the office to create a sustainable living environment, Nextiva has chosen to offset their carbon emissions by participating in Carbonfund.org's CarbonFree program. As a partner in the CarbonFree program, Nextiva supports third party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects in the US and abroad to reduce CO2 emissions while paving the way for a clean energy future. Their participation in the program has not been in conflict with their own growth as a company as they doubled in size in 2011. One look at companies using their service (IBM, Acura, Delta and Target to name a few) and it's clear Nextiva has a sustainable future.
So what about pricing?
Nextiva's 4 user phone system is just $24.95/line with unlimited minutes, 4 local and one toll free number, 1 virtual fax number, free US and Canada calls, professional greetings, US based support and of course a Virtual, cloud based PBX system.
