TDS managedIP Hosted integrates voice and data as a single communications solution. Unlike many voice over Internet protocol services, it never uses the public Internet. Real-time benefits include: no upfront capital expense; only pay for services needed; no need to worry about equipment becoming obsolete; advanced call routing features that ensure customers never get a busy signal, employee productivity improves, and revenues increase because all calls get through the first time; a single phone number for employees to give to clients, while still maintaining the ability to manage incoming calls. One phone number can be set to ring through to multiple phones (office, cell, and home) simultaneously; and a user friendly administration that offers flexibility to quickly and easily adjust to staffing changes or when employees simply switch work stations; saves both time and money.   Visit for more details about TDS  ManagedIP Hosted.
