What is iPlum Business Mobile Solution?

iPlum has an innovative approach to flexible virtual phone system for mobile entrepreneurs. It is light weight and easy to setup.

How does iPlum compare against vendors like OpenPhone*?

OpenPhone is a relatively newer company which provides second line but it is missing the critical requirements of Virtual Attendant and other smart features required by mobile businesses.

With iPlum you can get any Local or Toll-free number as second line. You get your own True Caller-ID with every call or text which is critical as a business line. You get dual reliability. You can use your Carrier PSTN network or VoIP for calls. You can configure Auto Attendant and Extensions to give a professional look to your business.
