Our history: how Versature became net2phone Canada

net2phone Canada, formerly Versature, was founded in 2003 with an exclusive focus on business VoIP telephony solutions. As one of the first strictly-Canadian VoIP providers within the industry, coupled with its commitment to customer success, Versature started to become recognized as a key player in hosted PBX services. Versature began collecting accolades, from being named a Branham300 “Up and Comer”, to being awarded Small Business of the Year, and eventually making the list of Ottawa’s Fastest Growing Companies. Versature had a steep growth trajectory, building a powerful team of business phone service experts while developing innovative features to improve everyday efficiencies for its clients.

Versature feature development

Knowing that its product can serve as more than a dial tone, Versature invested in feature development to give its users advanced functionality. In 2013 Versature launched the Trust Initiative, an independently-hosted website to deliver real-time and historical information about Versature’s performance. “At Versature we built TRUST by striving for perfection, and being transparent when there is an issue,” Paul Emond, Versature Founder. Versature developed features like Sonar, a self-service Client Portal which allows users and administrators to manage their business phone system and individual extension, as well as voicemail to email transcriptions, integrations with SaaS platforms, a robust analytics platform, and more.

Customer success & giving back

While Versature started from humble beginnings, it was never afraid to compete against the big guys. Founded on a customer success mindset, Versature differentiated itself from major telecom giants by providing reliable service and unparalleled support to Canadian businesses. Versature wove corporate philanthropy into its business strategy, partnering with local non-profits to power telethons, donate service and capital, and encourage it’s Versature team members to volunteer during business hours. As part of Versature’s commitment to the 1-1-1 initiative of corporate philanthropy, it has pledged 1% of equity, 1% of time, and 1% of services to charitable endeavours since 2015. While Versature’s name has changed to net2phone Canada, our commitment to giving back to our community is unwavering.
