Digi Telecommunications (Digi) has officially launched Omni today, an enterprise-level virtual phone system that is an affordable alternative to complicated and expensive office phone systems.
Digi said Omni is ‘PBX 2.0’, turning any smartphone into a call centre, simply controlled by an app on a smartphone and web dashboard.
Praveen Rajan, Digi’s Chief Digital Officer said, “We see a clear market opportunity for us to leverage on our connectivity and network infrastructure to continue offering affordably priced, advanced digital solutions for SMEs to grow their business. We have already begun helping SMES to digitise with iFleet and vcash, and Omni’s launch today will strengthen our proposition to be the trusted digital partner for small businesses in Malaysia. For the 907,065 SMEs nationwide , Omni bridges the gap between investing in an expensive traditional phone system with limited re-routing options and missing incoming calls, as well as potential sales opportunities.”
The Telco claims that Omni is incredibly useful for today’s SMEs, startups, business and social groups, thanks to its host of work oriented functions.
From as low as RM60/month and no contract, the basic plan comes with:
