"Quality phone service and telephone technology is essential for effective operations and guest communication, yet many hotels suffer from outdated, unreliable, and expensive solutions," said Austin Segal, Vice President of Curator.

Hosted & On-Site PBX Solutions
A leader in hotel PBX systems, Phonesuite Direct provides both cloud-hosted and on-premise PBX solutions. Their cloud-hosted Voiceware Platform provides an all-in-one, easy-to-implement phone and SIP solution, which helps ensure hotels can reliably communicate with each other and their guests. Owners and operators can tap Phonesuite Direct for start-to-finish project management, and support, and guests and staff will experience crystal clear calls.
"Phonesuite Direct is proud to have been chosen by Curator as a preferred Hosted PBX provider as well as a preferred On-Premise PBX provider," said Scott Jamison, President & COO of Phonesuite Direct.
