Cisco has made several steps recently to make their UC500 phone systems not simply lower priced, but compelling values. The UC500 products are for sites with less than 60 handsets. They support multiple locations with up to 60 phones each. In addition to recent price reductions:
Cisco Finance continues to offer zero percent leases for 36 months with $1 buyout.
The new 524 phone handsets are nice products and their lowest priced handset ever. Most prefer them to the other models.
An additional promotion includes Veramark call reporting software free.
SIP compatibility is really kicking in as a benefit. With monthly line charges around $20 per line, we have payed for the 0% lease in savings from the phone bill.
The new products, added features, SIP capability, and Cisco’s technology leadership in IP Telephony confirm their systems are worth a look.
