Cloud telephony is here and thousands of enterprises are already taking advantage of the expanded functionality and cost savings inherent in moving IP PBX services to the cloud. Put an end to expensive and proprietary on-premises IP PBX equipment. By leveraging our resilient cloud infrastructure and Quality of Service (QoS) engineered network, ThinkingVoice lets you focus on communicating with your team and customers to grow your business. Now your organization can stay lean without any heavy lifting—or communications budget creep.
All under one roof. Connect users throughout your global enterprise—at corporate headquarters, regional sites, or branch offices. In customer contact centers. On the road. In home offices. Wherever your users are located, intelligent call routing ensures your workforce is ThinkingVoice connected at all times.
Quality of Service-enabled. Our service delivery model employs enhanced QoS engineering at each network segment between the end user and our distributed cloud-based service data centers. QoS guarantees that real-time communications traffic—such as high quality voice and video—gets priority over other types of data traffic for superior service quality and performance.
Redundant. ThinkingVoice is powered by our innovative, geographically load balanced, multi-data center “mesh,” which provides customers 99.999% uptime and business continuity without the large upfront capital purchase and maintenance investments required for on-premises systems.
Full PBX functionality. Without the hardware headaches. Enable your entire distributed and increasingly mobile workforce to access advanced features such as find-me/follow me, advanced conference calling, call forwarding, voicemail-to-email, Web-based management, reporting, and so much more.
Scale voice service up…or down. We don’t believe in charging for more than you need. With our pay-as-you-grow subscription service, you can supercharge your PBX features and functionality at your own pace. Because ThinkingVoice is a cloud-based service, it is easy and cost-effective to deploy. We take care of the technology investments and maintenance so you can deploy critical IT resources to more strategic technology initiatives.
Application integration for unified communications. ThinkingVoice is no one-hit wonder. It’s part of ThinkingSuite, a comprehensive collection of smart applications built on a single cloud platform for truly integrated unified communications.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
ThinkingVoice leverages a resilient cloud infrastructure and Quality of Service (QoS) engineered network to deliver the best enterprise-class IP PBX voice service available. All for a fraction of the cost of legacy premises-based systems.
Thinking Phone Networks’ innovative, multi-data center architecture
We use Voice over IP (VoIP) to connect smartphones, softphones, video phones, contact centers, and audio conferences to our managed ThinkingSuite PBX service. Our voice service is delivered via our highly redundant, multi-data center cloud infrastructure and offers the most advanced features and capabilities available, including voicemail, auto attendant, four-digit dialing, and more. An intuitive Web-based management interface allows your IT team to readily access account information. With ThinkingVoice, you can focus on your business—not on purchasing and maintaining expensive hardware systems.
End-to-end solution. ThinkingVoice differs from expensive premises-based systems and other hosted offerings by providing:
- An end-to-end QoS-enabled network for high voice quality
- Voice communications across modalities—desktop, mobile, softphone, contact center, and video
- The main UC application conduit to improved communications, collaboration, and workflows
- Core IP PBX capability coupled with powerful management tools and actionable analytics capabilities to track activities and workflows and make process improvements
Low upfront costs. Because ThinkingVoice is a cloud-based service, we allow enterprises to realize significant cost savings and upgradability compared to premises systems. With Thinking Phone Networks, there is no costly hardware to purchase, manage, and maintain. Instead, we take care of the technology investments, upgrades, and ongoing maintenance, including moves, adds, and changes (MACs). Enterprises benefit from a high quality, robust, and scalable voice service.
Ideal for multi-site enterprises. We developed our cloud delivery infrastructure and ThinkingSuite UC software ecosystem specifically for multi-site enterprise organizations. Our backbone network is deployed in geographically-dispersed global data centers to provide robust response, high availability, redundancy, and security to support your distributed and mobile workforce.
With ThinkingVoice, enterprises can bring all office locations and knowledge workers together under one communications system, with no need to purchase separate systems for each office location or remote worker. One global, distributed, and mobile organization. One scalable cloud communications service to connect it all.

A SINGLE CLOUD PLATFORM BRINGS IT ALL TOGETHER
Thinking Phone Networks is helping enterprises evolve their communications capabilities to meet the realities of today’s increasingly global, mobile, social, visual, and distributed knowledge workforce. We believe the key to addressing these “new ways of work” is eliminating the historical islands of technology central to the legacy system deployment model. Our ThinkingSuite software platform takes direct aim at this antiquated way of providing mission-critical communications and business applications.
We built ThinkingSuite as an open ecosystem. Inherent in its design is the ability to tightly integrate not only our own core communications applications – spanning voice, mobility, video, analytics, presence, contact center, conferencing, and messaging – but also third-party utilities important to driving business activities – CRM, ERP, etc. – via an expansive and expanding Web services API library. What’s more, we also integrate with applications specific to a company’s business – “home grown,” often proprietary software our customers have developed that is specific to their company, their processes, their business.
We are the Smart Choice in cloud UC. The most flexible choice. And the most integrated.
One open cloud platform. Countless integrated application possibilities.
