Today, we’re excited to bring you a simple cloud-based business phone. With the free Convoi app, you can separate personal and business calls, texts and voicemails by adding a second line on your iPhone instantly.
Convoi had a pretty powerful yet easy to use conference calling and group messaging capability already. However, after listening to small business owners, consultants and entrepreneurs, we saw a need for additional capability of being able to have a business line that could make / receive calls and texts all from their personal device. And while cloud-based business phones aren’t a new concept, we knew we could solve this problem with a mobile-first perspective for everyday people working on the go.
Developed in Citrix’s Innovation Labs, Convoi integrates the trust and reliability of premium Citrix solutions with the innovative thinking of a startup to provide free cloud-based business communication for all users.
Other Key Features for Convoi:
- Simple 30 Second Set-up — No hardware to purchase or IT setup required.
- Most Any Area Code – Choose a number in any city in the US/Canada.
- Call Your Way – Calls work over your phone’s cell connection or WiFi/LTE so you always have service. Your choice.
- Business Messaging — Use your Convoi number for business text messaging.
