Hurricane Harvey has had devastating effects across Texas and Louisiana not only to individuals but to the ongoing operations of businesses as well. Continued communications are essential to the lifeblood of the company but many companies and their employees have had their telephone service interrupted or cannot come to the office to work. 

Avaya and Zang would like to help by offering to provide both Zang Spaces and Zang Office free for 90 days to affected individuals and companies. All residents and businesses in Texas and Louisiana are eligible. (A billing address within Texas or Louisiana is required.)

The communication tools:

Zang Office is a complete cloud-based phone service that's reliable and very simple to set up. It includes every feature you need to continue your business communications including voicemail, call holding, transfer and forward, pickup, park, caller ID, fax, do not disturb, extension dialing and many more. With included softphones for computers or mobile apps for IOS and Android your employees can communicate with each other or their customers from where ever they are on whatever device is available to them. Your business communications aren’t tethered to your physical office.

Zang Spaces is a cloud-based team collaboration and meeting app that allows you to conduct team or customer meetings just like everyone was face to face in the office. It will be your virtual conference room in the cloud that seamlessly integrates voice, video, tasks, sharing and more into one app you can access anywhere. Your employees can use it from to hold staff meetings and meet with customers on their laptop, tablet or phone. What’s included and what’s not included

The Zang Softphone client and Mobile Apps are included in the free offer but physical telephone handsets are not. Several models of phones are available for purchase if needed. Plus you can take advantage of our current phone promotion – if you select an annual plan when signing up, and choose to stay beyond the 90 day free period you will receive an $80.00 credit per user towards the purchase of any Zang phone. This $80 credit will cover the cost of our standard phone essentially providing it for free or reduce the cost of the other phones available for Zang.

Nationwide long distance is included (reasonable use clauses apply). Free international calling is not included in this offer but rate packages to common destinations are available.

The cost:

Nothing at all for 90 days. There is no commitment, and you can cancel any time before the end of 90 days.
