GrandCentral – the future of telephony?


GrandCentral
launched recently in the States. It provides one number that rings all your phones so you never miss a call again. Take a look at this video on the New York Times website to get an idea of what it offers.

Although only available in the States and Canada at the moment it gives a view of what’s possible and what we can expect in the UK soon.

These are some of the great features you get with GrandCentral.
