May 25, 2012 : 8:52AM – Ottawa, ON : Versature, a leading hosted PBX provider to small- and mid-size enterprises, today announced that the company has expanded its footprint by 270%, increasing the number of areas that it services from 350 to 950 cities and towns across Canada.
New partnerships and expanded relationships with Canadian-based Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) have made the expansion possible.
Since 2003, Versature has served major Canadian markets such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Halifax, among others. The recent expansion benefits businesses located in many secondary markets that have traditionally been underserved by Hosted PBX providers. Now, businesses in cities from Cold Lake, Alberta to Owen Sound, Ontario; and Witless Bay, Newfoundland can enjoy the “big-business” phone features and value-add communication services that Versature’s Hosted PBX service provides.
To put Versature’s expansion into context, there are roughly 3000 telco rate centres across the country and Versature now offers services from almost 1000 of them – or one third of the country. What’s more, with the Canadian population concentrated in urban centres across the southern part of the country, it is estimated that Versature can now service approximately 80% of the Canadian population.
Businesses can port their existing telephone and fax numbers to Versature’s platform, and can select new phone numbers including toll-free numbers and numbers with area codes in any region of Canada that Versature serves. Versature’s Hosted PBX service provides professional-grade business telephone and call control features, as well as optional advanced features such as fax-to-email, conferencing, call centre features, and more.
