Slingshot VoIP is a telecommunications provider and cloud-based web service enterprise-grade communications platform. The company is a subsidiary of dgNetrix Communications. The Head Office is in Toronto, Ontario.
The company was launched in 2012 with its stated mission being “to empower individuals and organizations to communicate easier clearer, smarter, faster from anywhere and everywhere to anyone and everyone”.
In this review of Slingshot VoIP, we will examine their business VoIP services and see how they stack up with other top providers.
Slingshot states that their service is designed for startups or small to medium-sized companies of 50 employees or less who are looking for an enterprise-grade VoIP phone solution on a small business budget.
Slingshot offers three main business VoIP plans: the Starter, the Professional and the Premium plans.
- The essential plan is priced at $19.95 per month and comes with 100 toll-free minutes, 1 number and 2 auto-attendants.
- The standard plan is priced at $29.95 per month and comes with 2,500 toll-free minutes, 10 auto-attendants and 5 toll/local numbers.
- The ultimate plan is priced at $44.95 per month. This plan comes with 10,000 minutes, unlimited auto-attendants and 20 toll/local numbers.
Whichever plan your company chooses, it will require exact minutes monitoring as any additional minutes will cost 5.9 cents per minute, which is substantial.
All plans come with unlimited interactive voice menus, unlimited custom greetings, unlimited voicemail boxes, unlimited landlines, voicemail to email, company conference bridge, toll-free and North American local numbers, and all standard professional phone (PBX) features.
Also included are auto-attendants, IVR menu, mission-critical fault tolerance, comprehensive data security, information only extensions, office hours, greetings management, no busy signals, music on hold, and custom ringtones for every phone.
Slingshot claims there is instant activation, no contracts, and no risk. Mind you all pricing is in USD and all payments are redirected to PayPal. Which on its own is not a bad thing. But it means you are on the hook with either PayPal balance or with the credit card.
Another cool feature is that they have a business phone systems course as this company is targeted towards start-ups who may not know much about the software or systems.
GoneVoIP's review of Slingshot VoIP, we came away impressed with the wide range of features available, but we were disappointed by the pricing schedule. To us looks like Slingshot could have two more plans; one in between Starter and Profesional and between Profesional and Premium.
The pricing listed is already above average but then we see the fine print which states all prices are in USD, and we know our loonie tends to lag behind make these plans all but more expensive. It is not a good practice when a Canadian based company charges in USD.
We do give them points for no contracts and the business VoIP phone 101 courses.
