This week, Bell announced the launch of Bell Total Connect for small business customers across Ontario and Québec. Previously available only to large business and government enterprises, Bell Total Connect has been described as the next evolution in IP phone services, delivering a suite of messaging and unified communications services to customers.

"The launch of Bell Total Connect for small business in Ontario and Québec demonstrates Bell's commitment to bringing the best broadband networks and services to all our customers," said Rizwan Jamal, President of Bell Residential and Small Business Services.

The service includes the telephony features available in a flexible IP-based solution, including Find Me & Follow Me, enhanced and customizable call routing and management, and Simultaneous Ring which enables incoming calls to ring on up to 10 numbers at a time.

Bell Total Connect also lets users manage calls from a computer, laptop or smartphone anywhere they are connected to the Internet, allowing for remote work while maintaining business identity for outgoing calls.
