Digiweb announces €5m deals from corporate voice division

15 Oct 2009

National telecommunications and managed services provider Digiweb today announced new deals worth €5 million from its corporate voice service, Digitalk.

Digiweb has signed deals with more than 600 business customers, such as Vesta’s European Operation Centre, Ask.com, ChannelAdvisor and the Four Seasons hotels Carlingford and Monaghan, for its range of voice services.  The company expects the customers to save, on average, 35pc on their phone bills compared to their previous supplier.

Voice-over IP or SIP trunks, PSTN, ISDN, and inbound-voice services, such as Freefone and LoCall, are just some of the full range of services Digiweb provides to business customers.  The firm also provides wholesale voice to carriers and partners.  

Digitalk, launched in early 2009, has been implemented across private and public-sector organisations. Many Irish businesses’ need to cut back on costs has fuelled the demand for the service.

“We have reduced our telephone bills substantially since switching to Digiweb earlier this year,” Dermot Short, vice-president, European Operations, Vesta, said in a release.

“We are really impressed by the quality of Digitalk and by the speed that all our lines were transferred over.  There was no interruption of service for our employees and customers.  This is very important for our business as the telephone is still a very important communications tool.”

Colm Piercy, CEO, Digiweb, agreed about cost-savings.

“Irish businesses have been paying too much for telecoms services for far too long,” Piercy said in a release. “We set about changing that by launching our corporate voice services. Companies have been quick to realise that switching voice lines is not a dark art.  

“VoIP is particularly popular as businesses appreciate that the quality of calls over IP is now every bit as good as traditional voice while they reap the substantial savings.”
