Coronavirus: Free remote phone service for healthcare sector



CircleLoop will fund a pledge to provide free business telephony to any school, healthcare provider or charity who is facing remote working challenges due to the unprecedented outbreak of Coronavirus across the country.

The service will be offered free of charge for the next three months to any existing or new customers who need to facilitate remote, mobile or flexible working at short notice.

The internet-based phone system can be live in a matter of minutes, following completion of a short online form, with no card or payment details required. It supports calling, call menus and greetings, voicemail transcription and a range of other features.

Since it was founded in 2016, CircleLoop has rapidly established itself as an alternative to the normal telecoms approach, as businesses continue to shift to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and cloud services generally.

CircleLoop operates as a self-service tool and it works anywhere over the internet in desktop and mobile applications instead of using traditional desk-phones. As such, organisations required to self-isolate, but which may not have existing structures in place to facilitate remote working, can use CircleLoop to maintain connectivity and accessibility for their workforce, with immediate notice.

Damian Hanson, co-founder of CircleLoop, commented: “Here at CircleLoop we recognise the unprecedented issues that the Coronavirus outbreak is causing for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

“As a team we wanted to do something to try to make the pressures experienced by schools, healthcare providers and charities a little easier when needing to work remotely during self-isolation periods in the coming weeks.”

Schools, healthcare providers and charities looking to take advantage of this free service can sign-up instantly at
