The NBN and the cloud are two critical factors impacting business success and competitiveness in the ongoing digital revolution in Australia. Businesses of all sizes can benefit from the new infrastructure by embracing NBN-compatible phone systems as well as deploying their enterprise applications in the cloud.
As a cloud solutions company, we offer a range of business Internet options including the NBN, as well as PBX phone systems and data integration services. So, you can count on our holistic package for a seamless transition to the cloud and the NBN, whether you need VoIP, cloud computing, data, or a phone line installation.
We offer you a private cloud to host your VoIP communication systems (voice, data or video sent over the Internet), applications and data, and phone lines here in Australia. Plus, a dedicated account manager will stay in touch to review your account regularly and address your growing business requirements.
Do you need a new phone line connection or system compatible with the NBN? Are you looking to move your core business applications, such as printing and payment processing, to the cloud?
Here’s how we can help transform your business:
1. We Offer Remote Accessibility

3. We Host Your IT Systems on a Private Cloud
We provide cloud infrastructure dedicated to only your organisation. With a private platform, we can cost-effectively customise features based on your technical and business requirements.
This gives us the flexibility to address your data privacy, security, and compliance needs in which its public cloud counterparts cannot guarantee.
4. Access to Technical Support 24/7
Our call centres are located in Australia, which means you get access to unlimited support from local experts, 24/7. No more waiting on hold for unhelpful overseas call centre support.
5. You Pay for Only What You Need
With the flexibility to deploy your business apps on a made-to-order cloud infrastructure, you pay for only what you need. This means you won't bear the cost of cloud-based IT resources you don't intend to use. Forum’s cloud offering is billed on a per-seat subscription, eliminating the need for upfront costs and allowing your business to scale effectively.
6. We Offer a Holistic Cloud Solution
We deliver a holistic cloud service so you can access all your computing resources "under one roof." We bring everything together, from printing functions, printer leasing Melbourne, printer leasing Sydney, VoIP communication, and data entry to reporting, invoicing, payment processing, and order delivery. By integrating all these different systems, we help to enhance workplace collaborations.
7. Easily Scale Up Cloud-Based Resources in Tandem with Growth
Our cloud service is scalable to meet your changing business requirements - you pay for the latest technology for a monthly per user fee. When you need to add users, we'll scale the IT and business communication resources available to you accordingly.

9. We Offer a Low-Cost Hardware Solution
With the power of our cloud solution, you don’t need top of the line desktop computers and laptops. Instead, you can invest in more budget friendly hardware while relying on the cloud’s processing power to do the heavy lifting.
