"It’s hard to stay in business when customers can’t get ahold of you. To limit our risk of operational downtime, we've rebuilt our systems from the ground up, and selected Intermedia for our voice and business email keeping critical services highly available."

Jeff Chambers

Director of IT at WongDoody

"With other systems, you have to call in, put in a trouble ticket, and wait for them to respond back. Intermedia avoids that headache by promptly answering your phone calls and resolving your issues right away."

John Leeper

IT Administrator at The Onin Group

Other devices supported with centralized configuration include:

Polycom SPIP phones (IP331, IP540, IP650), but since these devices are end of sale, some features may not be easily available on them.

Cisco SPA phones: SPA 303, SPA504, SPA525.

Polycom conference phones: IP 5000, 6000, 7000.

Things to test on the beta system

Since this is an early beta, and there will be more capabilities which will be coming shortly.

Please focus your testing on the following:


Q: Is what I’m using the complete feature set that we will launch?

A: You are getting the features that are currently available.  Throughout the next few months we will continue to add features and automatically update your service.

 

Q: Is this my new demo account, or a temporary demo account?

A: The account we have created for you will be a temporary beta test account. Later on, we will create a more permanent NFR or demo account for your ongoing use.


Q: Can I talk about this with customers?

A: At this point, we ask you to use your best judgement when talking to customers about our new system.  We encourage you to get familiar with the features and processes.  We will communicate to you the general availability timing.

 

Q: I want to order more phones, can I just use the admin portal?

A: At this time, the functionality looks to be available in the portal but the back end systems aren’t quite complete. If you need more phones please contact the Sales Engineer who initially set you account up.

 

Q: Will we automatically migrate customers on 1.0 and 2.0 to this platform when it launches?

A: Our ultimate plan is to have all customers on one system. But, initially, there is no means to mass migrate our existing users to this new system. 

 

Q: How do I report a bug?

A: Please use the feedback section of this website. If you have a list of bugs to report, you can also mail them to the email: cpbx-feedback@intermedia.net 

 

Q: Where can I see a complete feature list?

A:  https://securisync.intermedia.net/im/s/NES8W15OlnlF4WPWv7ZPMw000fc297 

 

Q: Will I get updates when things change? For example when new features come out?

A: Yes, we will send out periodic email with updates.  Also, check back here and look at the what's News and Updates section.
