Editorial Review

Branded as the "The Business Cloud" and helping businesses focus more on doing business and less on managing IT communications, Intermedia is a cloud voice and unified communications provider designed for enterprises. They make it easy to communicate by nesting thirty services underneath one provider with their Unite product.

Voice & UC Communications: Unite

Intermedia designed their cloud voice solution to serve enterprises that need a worry-free experience in the voice space. From enterprise-grade calling features and a web-based control panel to phone/computer integration and even the ability to keep your existing number through their porting service, Unite is structured with business continuity and functionality in mind. Plus, Intermedia offers 99.999% uptime, often called the "five nines". Intermedia highlights how these "five nines" make the difference between being "off-line" for 8.76 hours (99.9%) or just 5.26 hours (99.999%) per year. 

The Worry-Free Experience

Founded on five pillars (security, reliability, onboarding, support and regulatory compliance), Intermedia helps ensure businesses have a safe, secure, and seamless transition to the cloud. And more so, Intermedia helps businesses focus on doing business while Intermedia handles any communication worries like security, uptime, or compliance.

We started using Intermedia at the beginning of this year, and thus far it
has performed like a business phone system should. We've had no issues with
downtime or lack of features. Phone systems should just work, and this one
does.

Works well, good price
