Press8 Telecom Announces Integration of Skype for SIP™ Open Beta into Their Hosted PBX System

Austin, TX–(May, 18th 2010) – When you’re doing business on the web, accessibility is vital. With the launch of Press8 Telecom’s fully integrated Skype for SIP™ Open Beta, customers now have the ability to (1) add a ‘Click-to-Call’ feature on their website that will connect their Skype customers at the click of a button free of charge (2) make Skype calls using their Press8 VoIP hosted PBX free of charge and (3) accept Skype calls free of charge through their Press8 VoIP hosted PBX. The integration of these two powerful systems will not only save businesses on International calls, but it will give them the ability to route these calls through a professional sounding Press8 VoIP hosted phone system.

“Our customers are very excited about being able to make and receive Skype calls directly from their desk phones. Skype offers competitive International calling rates, and if both callers are registered Skype users, the call is free,” says Press8 Telecom President Tamara Field. “Companies with a worldwide presence could potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on their International calls.” Field adds, “By adding ‘Click-to-Call’ buttons on web pages and emails, registered Skype users worldwide can reach your business phone system or call center for free using Skype. There’s no need to change your company’s number to accommodate the Skype calling feature with Press8. Calls are seamlessly routed through the customer’s Press8 Hosted PBX system just like any other call.”

Once a Press8 customer has registered for their free Skype account, Skype integration into their Press8 phone system is quick and easy. Just contact the Press8 support team. There is a onetime installation fee and a small monthly fee charged by Press8 to maintain the Skype integration.

“We are always looking for ways to help our customers save money and be more productive,” states Field. To learn more about Press8 Telecom’s SIP enabled Hosted PBX system, visit www.press8.com.
