Being connected to The Loop doesn't end with just your data services. We’re part of Gamma, one the largest carriers of voice minutes in the UK, so we can also offer you access to a great range of cloud voice services.
Businesses everywhere are moving to hosted cloud voice services for their telephony. And no wonder. They’re often better, more flexible and cost substantially less than equivalent services delivered over on-premises PBX systems.
Cloud voice from The Loop takes everything up another level. Our high bandwidth door-to-door fibre connectivity is dedicated solely to your business and delivers the best possible voice quality and performance, ensuring you always get the very best that cloud voice has to offer. For our hosted platform we’ve chosen what we regard as the industry’s best and most versatile - Gamma’s Horizon service.
Already saving money and boosting productivity at thousands of businesses, Horizon takes away the burden of owning and running your own on-site hardware and moves everything into the cloud where we look after it on your behalf. Meanwhile you stay in full control through a simple web interface that also provides refreshingly clear billing and management information.
With Horizon you can easily integrate mobile telephony, fixed telephony and home working, giving your customers a totally seamless experience. Updates and new features are delivered transparently in the background as soon as they are released. You’ll certainly appreciate the expertise of our local Manchester-based support centre, which covers the entire service end to end. And when you need your telephony to grow with your business - whether by headcount, location or both - you’ll find us remarkably quick to respond and even quicker to provision what you need.
And when you’re ready to embrace unified communications Horizon is ready with a clearly defined roadmap towards a fully unified service.
For those businesses that prefer to work with their own PBX, The Loop is ready with high performance SIP trunks. Being part of Gamma, the UK's leading SIP provider, enables us to provide a more flexible and lower cost alternative to legacy ISDN connections into the PSTN.
Fully compatible with all leading IP PBXs in the UK - not to mention third party services like Skype™ for Business and Microsoft® Lync - SIP trunks from The Loop are delivered over our own fibre network right to your premises, giving you the utmost in bandwidth and resilience on a connection that’s dedicated solely to your business and not shared with anyone else.
The Loop’s SIP trunks can save you a massive 50% on standing line rental costs while slashing call charges by as much as 25% when compared to ISDN. And if your business works across multiple sites we can save you potentially even more with free internal calls and a host of advanced features provided as standard.
Our SIP trunks also give you maximum flexibility on how and where geographic telephone numbers are used and deliver as standard a high degree of business continuity. You’ll also like the way they are quick to provision. So long as you’re within reach of our network we can have you connected and up and running within days whether you’re a small business with a handful of lines or a call centre with many thousands. Better yet you can scale up or down on demand whenever you want as business needs change.
