Provider Overview

Vonage pushed VoIP into the mainstream and has been a pioneer in the business communications industry since. True to its roots as a technology disruptor, Vonage has embraced technology to transform how companies communicate to create better business outcomes. Developed back in early 2000, the service was first introduced to US consumers in partnership with Circuit City in 2004. Vonage was created by Jeff Pulver, an internet pioneer and investor, who previously created one of the first ever Voice over internet applications, known as Free World Dialup. Vonage has grown extensively since its humble beginnings, and the provider went public in 2006. Ever since, Vonage has been innovating their platform, and expanded into the Business VoIP market by acquiring Vocalocity in 2013. Vonage grew their business service into a powerful cloud-first platform that enables users to collaborate virtually anywhere, any way. Vonage has also expanded their platform beyond business phone solutions. By acquiring Nexmo back in 2016, Vonage brought together their robust unified communications solution with the agility of embedded, contextual communications APIs. This powerful combination enables businesses to collaborate more productively and engage their customers more effectively across messaging, chat, social media, video and voice.More recently, Vonage has also partnered with Amazon to include their Chime solution in their Vonage Business Cloud platforms.

Editor's Bottom Line

Vonage’s Business Cloud is one of the strongest offerings for SMB organizations looking to gain an entire Unified Communications platform that enables users to connect via voice, chat, text messaging or even video. Pricing is competitive,  with plans tailored to fit specific needs and requirements, and month-to-month contracts are available as well. What’s also unique is Vonage’s separation between a Mobile and Complete plan. The Vonage Business Cloud Mobile Plus is designed for small companies that do not require desk phones and would rather utilize their Vonage service either on their computer, or a smartphone. This is great for remote teams, as well as smaller organizations, that are always on the go. This plan includes more than 40 powerful business phone features like a virtual receptionist, and voicemail to email. For larger organizations, Vonage Enterprise provides hybrid network and bring your own broadband options with SD-WAN, elevated quality of service for all communications, even more advanced features, and deep integrations with mission-critical business applications like CRMs and WFOs. Vonage Enterprise is also built on top of a dedicated nationwide MPLS network, along with powerful features like visual voicemail, enterprise-grade conferencing for up to 300 participants and even call center functionality. your business can completely tailor the solution with the features they need, instead of paying a price that includes features that will never be used. As an added bonus, and a bit of a unique offering in the market, Vonage Business Cloud  also includes a free subscription to Amazon’s Chime solution, providing users with another platform for collaboration including online meetings, video conferencing and team presence and chat. Their Nexmo platform is another example of how Vonage has expanded beyond phones. Nexmo enables business to engage customers across messaging, chat, social media, and voice - so things like sending verification messages or outbound marketing campaigns. Overall, Vonage Business is a strong choice for any organization that is looking for a tailored approach solution, while still maintaining the flexibility and scalability of a cloud solution. Vonage manages to include an impressive feature set into a cost-effective, custom solution for every business, and their platform extensions like Chime and Nexmo help round out Vonage’s offerings to be much more than just Business VoIP.
