getting started with ring-u
Is ring-u right for you?
We have designed our system and services for main street America. Small businesses of many types such as independent realtors, accountants, lawyers, contractors, doctors offices, retail and distribution and many others can benefit from our low prices and ease of use.
Here are businesses that are not a good fit:
Call Centers, robo-callers, tele-spammers.
Companies that only need a single phone line
Companies that need more than 20 lines, or 50 extensions.
Companies that have/need specialized software that integrates with specific phone systems.
Companies that need very extensive detailed support. Example: If you need a tech to set up a basic wireless router, we are not a good fit, unless of course you get a tech to set your Hello Hub up for you. We are the most DIY solution available but not everyone is techie.
So you want to save money and grief over your phone system by becoming a ring-u customer?
Well, since it is based on VOIP phone service the first thing to do is to test the QUALITY of your internet service and connection. This is NOT the same as a speed test. Internet speed is important but there are some other qualifications that are even more important, so click the button below from your workplace network (preferably a wired connection), and lets see if you are ready to buy a Hello Hub.
Do you need phones?
We support the many Grandstream IP phones, Atcom phones and some Cisco, Polycom and Htek models too. The list of supported devices is always growing and can be found HERE.
You can also use cell phones as extensions either by downloading the Zoiper or Grandstream Wave app for iOS or Android, or simply forwarding your calls to your cellular number as a remote extension.
You may buy the Grandstream phones from us, or from Amazon, or anywhere else you like.
Create your Account
Now that your Hello Hub and IP phones have arrived, you can create your ring-u account. There is no need for a credit card at this stage.
Once that is complete you will log into your new account and begin the actual set-up process. During this step you will:
Choose to transfer a number or get a new one.
Decide how many voice lines you need.
Do you need a fax number too?
