Sprint teamed up with Ooma to deploy its new Omni phone business phone service that targets small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Omni, which is a cloud-based VoIP service, is provisioned over a high-speed internet connection to give SMBs some of the same features that large enterprises use, including a virtual receptionist for custom call answering and routing, ring groups, extension dialing, call park, and a mobile app for taking business calls on the go.

Instead of contracts, Sprint is offering Omni on a per-month basis with plans starting at $19.95 per extension.  Omni has more than 35 features, including a full-suite of configurable cloud-based private branch exchange offerings. It also has a web portal to simplify user management and cut down on IT support. Omni is compatible with existing analog phones and some Yealink IP phones.
