YOVU Cloud Office Phone System
Founded in 2010, LCA Systems of London Ontario was reselling and supporting onsite IP PBX systems such as ShoreTel and others. In 2017 the company launched YOVU Office Phone service.
YUVO Business Services or (YO)ur (V)oice (U)nified is a Cloud PBX Phone service that allows the client to divest in all voice trunks and complex infrastructure towards plug and play IP Business Phones that simply operate over the internet.
The YUVO business value proposition is a relatively low cost, locally supported enterprise-grade Business services telephone solution that is feature-rich and user-friendly.

Pros and Cons
The cloud model allows the client to shed big telco voice connections and much of the equipment and effort needed to operate a PBX in-house. The company prides itself on great local support and personalized service that delights its customers.
The cloud-based YOVU Cloud Office Phone system is a new platform that needs to gain a proven base of mid-sized Canadian Businesses as reference accounts. This is a software-centric provider that also supplies desktop phones. A new IP Telephony customer may also need to partner to gain internet access, LAN services, and onsite support.
