August 10, 2007 - OTTAWA, ON – TalkSwitch®, a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative telephone systems for small and multi-location businesses today announced that MaidPro, one of America’s most successful home cleaning companies, has selected TalkSwitch as the telephone system of choice for its franchise locations.
TalkSwitch systems are already being installed in new MaidPro locations, as well as in existing locations undergoing upgrade and retrofit operations.
“TalkSwitch understands the needs of small, yet smart and sophisticated businesses like ours,” said Jeff Wechsler, Director of Research and Development, MaidPro. “We looked at a lot of other systems, and were extremely impressed with the level of small business knowledge and expertise that TalkSwitch exhibited. The systems are easy to install, they are loaded with the features our partners need to ensure tremendous service to their customers, and they offer an easy way to move to VoIP. TalkSwitch has been a truly great telephony partner for MaidPro.”
For franchise operations like MaidPro, TalkSwitch offers a valuable feature set that delivers great value and increases productivity and efficiency. From automated attendants that answer all incoming calls promptly and consistently, to remote extensions that ensure traveling and on-call employees are easily accessible from the main system, TalkSwitch fits the needs of a busy small business.
“MaidPro is a true small business success story,” said Jan Scheeren, President and CEO, TalkSwitch. “They started with a single location and have grown into an organization that stretches across the United States. They’ve been able to do that by bringing on smart people and giving them the tools and equipment they need to succeed. We’re proud that TalkSwitch telephone systems are part of the MaidPro recipe for success.”
TalkSwitch systems evolve and grow with a company and allow them to migrate to Voice over IP (VoIP). For franchise and multi-locations businesses, VoIP allows for three-digit dialing between company locations and head office, the ability to seamlessly connect callers to other branches, reduce long distance costs and take advantage of flat rate VoIP calling services.
TalkSwitch systems are ideal for businesses with two to 64 telephone users per office location. Systems start as small as two incoming phone lines with four local extensions, and can scale up to accommodate a maximum of 16 incoming lines, 16 VoIP trunks, and 64 extensions, which can be configured as analog or IP.
