Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by this global health crisis. And, we humbly thank those working to combat and contain this threat. 

This is an unsettling, challenging time for us all. At Vonage, we are doing everything we can to maintain the health and well-being of our employees, while also ensuring we run our business effectively and help our customers do the same. 

We’ve provided guidance to our customers to help them easily transition to virtual office set-ups to ensure business continuity. We’re working closely with customers to transition them to virtual contact centers by quickly replicating their call plans and configuring workflows to distribute calls to remote agents, wherever they may be. When ‘business as usual’ is disrupted, the ability to enable a completely virtual environment and maintain access to mission-critical business applications and connections from anywhere becomes more important than ever. 

Let Us Help - Work, Learn and Get Medical Advice from Anywhere on Us 

Vonage is releasing multiple free services that enable businesses in every industry to communicate, collaborate and connect with their customers from anywhere.

These offers include:

  • A new Business Continuity offer enabling seamless remote work for any business

  • Vonage Free Conferencing, a new standalone video collaboration product for use by anyone

  • SMS Connect, a new Vonage Instant Alert SMS service to distribute real-time updates on the COVID-19 pandemic from government agencies throughout the world. Vonage will open source SMS Connect so it can be shared easily and freely worldwide

Details on all of our new offers can be found in the press release we issued on March 18.
