Telkom Business has today announced the launch of Business Circle, a converged voice product specifically formulated for the small business sector. Business Circle enables customers to create closed user groups comprising both Telkom fixed line and mobile services, and allows for unlimited free calling within the group.

“It is this kind of innovation that enables communication – a critical component to the success of any small business,” says Jan Pieterse, executive Product House at Telkom Business.

The role SMEs play in economic growth and job creation is globally recognised. Telkom Business aims to provide benefits to the SME market, offering the core components required for convergence, such as fixed data, cloud, IT and mobile capabilities.

Telkom’s offerings have evolved from simple fixed and mobile bundles to tailor-made solutions.

Pieterse explains: “I believe that as one of the country’s leading ICT provider, Telkom has a vital role to play in aiding the development of the SME sector. The products we develop will go a long way in enhancing efforts aimed at bringing the second economy into the first.

“Our aim is to provide valuable product offerings and solutions designed specifically for small business as they seek to be sustainable and competitive,” continues Pieterse, emphasising that high quality and affordable communication is vital to the efficient functioning of all businesses.

“Businesses looking to tap into innovative solutions that enable productivity while enhancing convenience and cost-effectiveness must consider the convergence route – by using products like Business Circle – for their communication needs.”

According to Pieterse, Business Circle brings together the best of fixed and mobile.

“Our unique offering is the best voice value available in the market currently. With unlimited free calling between the various employees of a company, it is guaranteed to drastically lower costs and significantly increase efficiency and productivity in any organisation.”
