Work better together
Horizon helps your team work together with features that support the call management across teams and departments. With Hunt groups, you can seamlessly distribute and allocate calls to customised groups and departments. Transfer, park and group calls for slick and professional telephony.
As a cloud-based phone system, you can make and answer calls anywhere. All you need is a device and an internet connection. This allows greater flexibility for your workforce. You’ll never miss a call with sequential ringing call plans – if sales can’t pick it up, the customer service team will.
You can be sure of tight security with any solution we provide. Horizon is no different. Access to a detailed call history lets you view calls made, received and missed for compliance tracking. While barring unapproved call types and controlled phone access keeps you protected, always.
Ramp up efficiency
Efficient working is guaranteed with Horizon. There are a host of features to streamline your calls. Speed dialling makes repeat calling convenient. While a company directory plus presence ensures that any team member can quickly find the right colleague and see if they are available to take the call.

Hosted Horizon FAQs
How much does Hosted Horizon cost?
Horizon is a subscription service, which means you will pay a monthly fee per user. Packages start at £12.95 per user. We can also provide compatible phone handsets if required – for free on a 3-year deal. Contact our team for a free quote, and find out how much you can save.
Can I keep my current number?
Yes, we can port your existing number(s) into the Horizon system. A number port is when your numbers are moved from an existing network to the Horizon system. Depending on the order type, the lead time is 10-20 working days. The port is often scheduled shortly after the Horizon installation to minimise risk and avoid downtime. A Project Manager will be on hand to guide you through the process.
Will I need to give notice to my existing supplier?
Your existing supplier will receive a notification when we attempt to port your number(s). However, we recommend you contact them in advance to advise of your intent to move to another telecoms supplier.
