An ingenious purpose-built IP architecture makes our on-premise business VoIP phone system look and behave like a single, unified platform. It distributes the system’s intelligence across the communications environment so the system scales and grows as needed, across sites, or even countries. With our intuitive browser-based administrative interface, IT staff can maintain the system from anywhere on the network. It all comes together with plug-and-play ease and IT staff can maintain the system from anywhere on the network.

The business VoIP phone system’s distributed architecture and applications, and its N+1 redundancy help provide five-nines availability for mission–critical business continuity. The switch–based hardware platform helps ensure that in the event of a WAN failure, the phone system continues to place and receive calls on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).  
 Saving money _05 The lowest TCO in the industry.
Parallel’s solution eliminates the complexity and costly software upgrades common to other vendors’ unified communications solutions, and offers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry. As Aberdeen Research’s interviews with hundreds of customers confirm, our system lowers costs company–wide by reducing the number of IT staff needed to manage the system, and by freeing them to focus on strategic, business–building projects.  
Receptionist+on+Phone+2 Enhanced collaboration with intuitive communication tools.
Parallel’s unified communications features help entire teams to work together more effectively by enabling end users to access easy-to-use communication tools in a simple, intuitive interface. For instance, an exchange that begins via instant message can be turned, in the single click of a button, into a phone call. One more click can turn it into a video call, or activate desktop sharing. These features also integrate readily with third-party information and applications via a rich set of application programming interfaces (APIs). These interfaces enable users to manage communications based on customer information, or automate routine look-ups at the desktop.
