eVoice is a subsidiary of J2 Global along with Onebox. eVoice offers customers a virtual phone number and calls to this number can be forwarded to another number or phone. eVoice includes call forwarding, auto attendant, and call screening features. eVoice also offers premium features such as call recording, conference calling, and business texting for additional monthly charges..
eVoice and QuickPBX are similar, but there are a few features that set them apart.
Incoming Calls: QuickPBX offers unlimited channels for incoming calls. With eVoice you are only allowed to sign up for a maximum of 2 incoming lines. This may may be a problem for small businesses who have a national presence and want local numbers across the US that would ring into one central Virtual Phone System.
Unlimited Extensions: QuickPBX offers unlimited extensions so that your phone system can grow alongside your company. Each employee can have their own extension, voicemail services. They can also forward calls to whatever line is most convenient. eVoice's biggest plan caps at 5 extensions.
eVoice prices start from $12.99/month with 300 minutes included. Their most popular plan costs $29.99/month for 1,000 minutes. Overages are charged at 3.9 cents/minute.
QuickPBX Startup plan costs $9.95/month with 200 minutes included and overages are charged only 2.9 cents/minute. QuickPBX Basic plan costs $24.95 with 1,000 minutes included.
When you purchase a number from QuickPBX you own it and can take it with you if you leave, eVoice technically owns all the numbers you get from them.
PC Magazine - eVoice gives business users a stacked virtual telephone feature set (voicemail to text transcription, directories, recorded chats), but a few omissions keep it from greatness.
VirtualPhoneSystemReviews - If you are in that mid-range area where you will use around or just under 1000 minutes a month, and don't need features such as internet faxing, or queing then you will probably do fine with eVoice.
