BT Launches BT One Phone
BT Makes the OnePhone Service Available to the UK Market
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- BT announced on
July 17th the launch of BT One Phone. This launch follows the April
2014 announcement of the joint venture between OnePhone Holding and
BT to develop innovative mobile services for the UK's small to medium
sized businesses (SMBs). The new service brings together all of a
company's fixed lines, mobile phones and internal office phone
systems into one service that is hosted in the Cloud and delivered on
As the BT One Phone system is cloud-based, all of the feature-rich
call management services of a phone system, typically available on a
desk phone, are now available on their mobile, wherever they are.
Combined with 4G and unlimited access to over 5 million BT Wi-fi
hotspots, employees now have both the data and voice connectivity to
let them be as productive outside the office as they are at their
desk. The service also makes it easy for businesses to manage their
communications, through the BT One Phone portal.
Anders Bjorkman, CEO, OnePhone, said: "BT One Phone is designed to
meet the trends of more and more work being done away from the
office, and customers wanting a premium, managed service from a
supplier they can trust. Our cloud-based phone system offers all the
same functionality of an office-based phone system but without the
need to be tied to a desk -- it's all there on your mobile."
Graham Sutherland, CEO, BT Business, added: "Last week's announcement
of BT One Phone is the first result of the relationship BT has built
with OnePhone. This is a strategic initiative for BT Business and BT
is delighted to be working with OnePhone as a partner."
