July 2017 – Vital adds inbound redundancy options for business customers.
Vital Telcom are pleased to introduce improved redundancy for our inbound numbers, upon request we now offer customers an alternative inbound number either as an 0800 or an additional local number. The new allocated service will not use the BT network, so in the event of a BT network failure providing you have a fibre internet connection with a broadband back up, Vital can still deliver calls to your offices. We are therefore pleased to enhance further our SLA’s, rolling out an improved 99.997% uptime service. Which can be further improved by subscribing to our e-Receptionist service, where upon your business will never miss another call. Yes, a permanent receptionist service to answer all your calls, or just to operate as an overflow service, to back up your own receptionist during busy periods. Which means whether a busy period, or in the rare event of a simultaneous power and BT outage, Vital have you covered. Your phones will be guaranteed to always be answered and your messages forwarded appropriately. Ask us for further details of how to obtain full business redundancy today!

Vital successfully launches Gold Service from the beginning of January to every ‘allin1number’ customer for a FREE two month trial.

As these attacks which target both bandwidth and network components have become more prevalent, more sophisticated, more devastating Vital have been addressing your concerns and can now provide higher levels of service. We are pleased to announce a successful and seamless January upgrade to our major redesigned allin1number iP Virtual Office or Hosted PBX.

You have been asking for increased levels of support and service, we have listened !
You asked for an all-inclusive remote maintenance and moves and changes service, we have listened !
Vitals’ allin1number iP Virtual Office or IPVO launched a NEW high 99.999% availability GOLD service, which includes all maintenance and moves and changes and an immediate response for service effecting requests. With a 2hr response to non-service affecting requests, our Gold service will be available on all working days from 9-6pm and exclude all UK public holidays.
You asked for a higher availability iPVO; We responded by developing a brand new ‘dual node’ cloud based solution, that not only fulfils the request for the ‘five nines availability’, it offers our clients many more new features and much improved functionality.
With ‘service availability’ becoming so much more important over the last few years, (with the internet becoming a hackers paradise), all of us have been affetced personally or business wise in some shape or form.
Some cloud based PBX have suffered severely from the ever more prevalent Denial of Service ‘DDoS” attacks and similar, which are not only disruptive to your business, they have been ‘up to now’ something completely outside your control. Not ANYMORE speak to us today about our greater reliability:
Vital’s newly redesigned allin1number offers our customers a new experience delivering a 99.997% high level service availability. Most importantly this means a seamless DR transition, should there be a switch or network issue (outside your own internet). What does this mean to you “our customers”, well other than losing the call you are on, our mirrored service means an always available presence. With multiple data-centres hosting our equipment we seamlessly reconnect to a completely different ‘Allin1Number Cloud Platform’ should a DDoS attack or similar prevail.
Furthermore following our engineering team complete BETA testing of the new GOLD dual node system during the last quarter of 2015. We are pleased to announce that all clients will be upgraded to a FREE ‘two month’ Gold service trial during late December 2015. Hereafter, not only will you benefit from the new features, the completed Disaster Recovery suite and the new ‘all-inclusive’ maintenance/moves and changes for FREE during January and February. Thereafter, no further action is required to remain on Vital’s GOLD service. Following the trial period of January and February 2016, standard charges will increase to £10.00 per pilot number per month and £5.00 per sub-extension, that’s it. These new charges keep our pricing below our main competition, yet allow us to increase our service levels and provide the fully inclusive high level service you have been asking for.

However to ensure you are not charged automatically for GOLD, you must send an email to email@example.com requesting to revert to SILVER service following the two month FREE trial. Please note; due to the current volume of moves & changes requests the Silver service no longer includes either maintenance or moves and changes and we will charge for these services on an hourly basis should you need our help. However there is the choice to manage your own moves & changes without charges, on request we will provide your own Portal, to access your complete Office set-up. Please note; our SILVER service has an 8hr response time for non-service effecting requests. Additionally our SILVER service will continue to operate as efficiently as possible.
