Access America Telephone Systems: Vertical Summit

Vodavi STS/STSe
and Hosted PBX (Access America Complete)

Access America provides telephone systems for businesses.   Are you finding that you need new phones or a new system?  Can you answer calls reliably and transfer or forward calls to the correct place?  Do buttons on your phones stick or not work at all?  Are some of the lights burned out?  Has your business outgrown your current system?  Do you want voicemail for yourself and your employees?  Maybe it is time for a new phone system!

We install and maintain telephone systems.  Our on-premise systems include the new Vertical Summit system which provides the newest in Unified Communications technologies as well as being backwards compatible with older Vertical/Vodavi phone systems and phone sets. The Summit system is the newest in the Vertical line and is a hybrid digital/VoIP system that can accept telephone lines (POTS), voice over internet protocol (VoIP)/Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunks as well as T1/PRI circuits.  Systems can be networked and provide IP features such as PC applications with presence, cell phone apps, voicemail to email integration and notification. We also install the Vertical SBX IP320 system which provides the simplicity and efficiency of an on-premise phone system with the features of an IP phone system, including networking and voicemail to e-mail integration. We also maintain the grandfathered Vodavi STS/STSe telephone system which handles up to 24 telephone lines or T1/PRI and up to 48 stations. The STS/STSe includes caller ID functionality as well as voicemail and over 200 features packed into a compact KSU that needs little space in your telephone closet.

The Vertical line of telephone systems is developed in partnership with LG-Ericsson to adapt the systems for use in the U.S. and to provide support for the older model phone sets in the Vodavi line.  The Summit is a similar system to the iPECS eMG80 system and we can support either.

We also provide Access America Complete, a hosted PBX telephone system that relies on IP (internet protocol) technology and uses Cisco 7960 and 7940 telephone sets and is perfect for smaller offices who don't want to purchase a phone system, just the sets, or for large organizations that want a single phone system that connects all of their offices without requiring channelized T1s connecting multiple on-premises phone systems.  The hosted PBX system also comes with a web portal for each telephone set, click here to see an example.  Also, in addition to purchase of a system, we also provide leasing options so you can save your capital for other projects.  For more information or pricing, please call us at 865-482-2140.
