3-Way Conferencing

Conference any 3rd party for a 3-way call immediately after making or receiving a call.

Anonymously reject unwanted callers right away, and they never have to know. Or block a designated number, especially those pesky vehicle warranty callers.

Transfer a call to an extension, group, or phone number after announcing the party to be transferred.

Call Monitoring

Designated users can monitor and interrupt ongoing calls. For instance, they have the option to Listen, Whisper, & Barge.

Auto-Attendant

Predefined options present to your caller. As an example, “Thank you for calling X. For sales, press one, and billing, press 2.”

Automatic Call Distribution (ACD)

ACD is a software system that answers incoming calls and then routes them to a specific agent or department within a company—routing based on time availability, behavior, and priority level.

Busy Lamp Field (BLF)

Indicates which phones are in use with a status on your display.

Call Flip

Transfer calls from one device to another quickly and effortlessly without interrupting your call.

Call Park

First, place a call into a fictional extension. Then pick up that call by dialing the parked extension number.

Call Queue

Route calls to a designated extension or group in a first-in-first-out manner. For example, callers generally hear something like, “Thank you for calling. All agents are busy. You are the Nth caller. Please hold for the next available agent or press N to leave a message.” When the call is ready to be routed, the ACD immediatetly handles the routing automatically.

Call Recording

Record calls for training or documentation purposes. Call recording is available with specific Paramount packages.

All calls “On-Net” are FREE. That means you won’t get billed for any calls to another user on your Paramount service or other Paramount clients.

Group Call Pick-Up

Allows you to answer a call from any ringing phone that is in the same group as you. If there is more than one phone ringing, you would have no control over which call you to answer.

SMS & MMS

Send and receive text and multimedia messages from your business phone number to maintain your business identity.

Paramount’s Hosted VoIP Network Advantages

Paramount HOSTED PBX diagram

We built Paramount’s Hosted VoIP network with best-of-breed components. And with our service, you get a truly experienced team of industry veterans. As a result, you get quality service from an expert team so you can focus on your core business.

A clear difference, Paramount’s Hosted VoIP platform uses cloud-based technology that is geo-diverse. Therefore, multiple data centers share information in real-time. Consequently, you get a seamless system that withstands failover. Above all, this helps to avoid service disruptions.

While many carriers have redundancy plans relying on a primary and failover node, in contrast, Paramount’s system provides service concurrently across multiple locations in real-time. As a result, you can avoid service disruptions as calls are transferred automatically to any available node. For example, a voicemail left on a Philadelphia feature server can be retrieved on the New York server, even if the Philadelphia server is no longer available. Likewise, feature options like BLF and Park take effect across all servers immediately, so you never miss a beat.

Now, as network traffic grows, Paramount adds capacity specifically by deploying additional nodes. Subsequently, added nodes are automatically available to share call processing. And this all happens with zero downtime.  To put it another way, we expand to accommodate growth with zero impact on your service.

To conclude, you ultimately, without a doubt, can trust that our network reliability and advantages will improve the way you do business.
