Wow – over the top customer service!
I contacted Fortis on one of our employee’s recommendation, and David worked with our team to find the right solution, at the right price. Mike Duarte, our account manager, has been great in helping us get everything set up, and has been completely responsive to our questions. Fortis is the kind of company my company needs to grow and be successful – thank you!

We switched to business VoIP. Everything just worked.
Fortis sat down with us to understand how we needed our calls to be routed. They handled transferring our existing numbers to the new system. Once we switched to Fortis Business VoIP there were no issues, everything just worked.

Business VoIP Service for Sacramento Area Businesses
Fortis is headquartered in El Dorado Hills, California. Our principal market area includes the following California counties: Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, Yolo and Yuba. We also have customers in other parts of California and across the United States.
When you are planning a move to VoIP, it’s important that the components of your network are evaluated. Your router and switch must be VoIP-compatible to ensure consistently good call quality. You should confirm that you have the correct data cabling required to carry VoIP data traffic to each workstation. Your internet service bandwidth should be sufficient to handle the additional voice traffic. Because IT Support Services are a part of the Fortis’s offering, we will help with assessing your environment.
Fortis takes the time to study the bills from your current carrier to fully understand which lines are being used — and therefore determine which lines should be ported and which may be unnecessary. We’ve helped customers save money by consolidating and/or eliminating phone lines.
As part of the process, all phone numbers to be ported need to be confirmed and the proper porting documents submitted to properly coordinate the lines being transferred.
If you have existing analog line connections for burglar alarms, a fax machine and other devices, there are alternatative solutions for supporting those. Fortis can make recommendations for trusted partners offering VoIP compatible solutions for each.

What is VoIP phone service for business?
Business VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is the modern day replacement for legacy, in-house phone systems that connect to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) -- a.k.a. landline service. With VoIP, voice traffic travels back and forth through a company’s network and the internet, alongside data and video traffic.
Can VoIP service scale as our company grows?
Because VoIP service is cloud-based, companies that use VoIP do not need to worry about upgrades or about reaching the phone line or user capacity of an in-house system. Business VoIP service can scale from one user to tens of thousands of users.
How much does business VoIP cost?
The published based price for VoIP service ranges from $20 to $35 per user per month, depending on the service provider. Additional costs that may or may not be included in the base price are: dedicated user phone numbers (DIDs); FCC regulatory fees; the Universal Service Fund Recovery Fee; and the Enhanced 911 Service Fee. There is also a one-time charge for the IP telephones themselves, which can range from $80 to $500.
Is business VoIP cheaper than a landline service?
It depends. For most small businesses -- when all costs and benefits have been considered -- VoIP is more economical than landline service. For large businesses that have made a significant investment in an in-house PBX, VoIP may be less economical in the short term.
What is the best VoIP service for business?
Popular business VoIP brands include RingCentral, 8x8, Ooma and Vonage. Most VoIP providers offer a high quality of technical service. All providers use industry standard telephone hardware. What makes one company better than another comes down to factors such as customer service, advice, training and the availability of specific features.
Can you use a regular phone for VoIP?
Some VoIP systems have Analog Telephone Adapters (ATAs). These allow for connecting a traditional single line phone, alarm or fax machine to a VoIP system. IP phones from manufacturers such as Polycom and Yealink are the most commonly used type of phone for companies that subscribe to VoIP service.
