BT Launches BT One Phone 
BT Makes the OnePhone Service Available to the UK Market 
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - July 20, 2014) - 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 a mobile. 
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."
