Wave earns ‘PC Pro Recommendation’ for third year running

We are delighted to announce that our very own, cloud-based phone system, Wave has earned PC Pro Recommended status for the third consecutive year. As part of PC Pro Magazine issue 357, which included a report marking the best business VoIP phone systems, Wave stands out as one of the leading options for UK businesses.

‘’Gradwell’s Wave provides an easily deployed cloud-hosted VoIP solution with sophisticated call handling features. Its flexible price plans are very affordable, and micro-businesses will find Gradwell’s new PSTN replacement bundle appealing’’.

This extensive review, from an industry-leading publication, demonstrates that Wave can continue to be a real contender for businesses looking for a cost-effective VoIP phone system and for those looking for a smooth transition from their legacy analogue system as part of the PSTN switch-off.

Importantly for growing businesses, the review highlights that Wave has the ability to cope with increased demand due to being hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

‘’Reliability is assured since Gradwell hosts Wave on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and will create new instances as needed to cope with increased demand. Redundancy is covered, too, with Wave being deployed across three geographically diverse AWS sites’’.

In the review, PC Pro outlined many key system features as highlights and noted the speed of deployment and ease of setup, which is crucial for SMBs. Of the swift and easy deployment process, PC Pro said:

‘’Deployment is a breeze. Gradwell manages the process for you, and pricing is easy to understand as you only need to concern yourself with the number of monthly call minutes to landlines and mobiles that you require’’.

Looking at the features of Wave, the intelligent administration portal is another area that received praise, with the publication writing:

‘’The wave administration portal presents an account usage overview and provides easy access to all the core features and call-routing services. To add new users, you simply enter an email address to send their invitation to, set a password and decide whether to give them admin privileges or just make them wave users’’.

Other areas reserved for praise include the cost-effective pricing model, reporting & analytics capabilities.
