The only difference being it is specifically tailored to operations that require up to four lines. 'Before NEWT Mini, many Canadian businesses were limited to two options when it came to their business communications: too much or too little.

'NEWT Mini finally brings big business functionality to the majority of Canadian business.' Enterprise features include all the functionality of larger premium phone systems such as: Advanced Call Routing, Attendant Console, Automatic Off-Line Forwarding, Call Detail Records, Conference Bridge, Find me Follow me and Voicemail to Email. Michael Brown, Co-founder & VP Marketing says, 'The feature set of the NEWT Mini is the same as our most robust business phone system, the NEWT Managed PBX. Be it Conference Bridge, Voicemail to Email or Find Me Follow Me, NEWT Mini is the same system that enterprise businesses across Canada trust and depend on daily, except we've simply tailored it to the needs of smaller organizations.' 'This opens up a new marketplace for us, and the aggressive price point, full feature set and reduced business phone line expenses will slash telecom bills while optimizing any organization's operations and efficiencies. Any business in Canada with four lines or less, especially multi-location businesses, stands to benefit from this evolutionary product. Businesses benefit from having their phone system operate in the cloud and have the security of on-premise gear. NEWT fully manages this scalable solution end-to-end, so organizations can focus on growing their business.' Pricing: NEWT offers various financing models to suit small business budgets and cash flow. For example, a five year leased NEWT Mini 4 line system, including four top of the line Polycom VVX colour touch screen multimedia phones, 2 desktop softphones and 60+ features, can start at less than $35.00 per month per seat, including unlimited business Internet and full system management and support.
