In a world of ever changing technologies and advancing marketing and sales communications requirements, it's important for your business to stay on top. Telecommunications is the key to profit, as well as the most important portion of that is your business phone system. What you're looking for is a "Private Branch Exchange," or PBX. In the world of telephony, these advanced systems are what keeps communications open between employees, offices, and the outside world. It can be difficult to determine what sort of business phone system you need, though.
You should consider some questions: What kind of internet connectivity does your business phone system have to have? Would you benefit more from maintaining it at your office, or having a third party host it? Would you need to have your system handle several physical locations, and possibly forward calls to other remote locations?
Addressing a few of these concerns is generally vital to choosing the best fit for your organization, and its PBX. To help you find those answers, here's some food for consideration...
Employee salaries are the price of doing business. However, paying someone just to answer phones, or taking time away from an otherwise skilled employee to perform this menial task is really a waste of funds. The same tasks performed by receptionist on the phone can be taken care of by many of the business phone systems these days, both cheaper, and better than a human. At the most basic level, these "Auto Attendant" features includes options such as allowing the caller to brows through a touchtone activated menu, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Now if only they had a PBX that will brew a pot of coffee...
More interesting are auto-dial capabilities, which can be used to provide a wide array of useful functions. At the most basic level, many of us associate PBX auto-dialing with robo-calls, or telemarketing. However, the systems can do much more than that, with tasks like sending text messages to cell phones automated for informative personal, departmental, or company-wide alerts and notices. Voicemail from important numbers can be forwarded instantly, and many packages even provide text to speech for reading messages to the recipient, such as crucial e-mails, news or stock alerts, and more.
Modern software has seen a flood of high quality open-source development, and the PBX market is no exception. The "Asterisk" project is a suite of high powered, feature rich software PBX tools, very popular with many businesses. The software runs on a standard PC, along with specialized interface cards to connect you to the outside phone system (including everything from standard phone lines, through ISDN or T1 lines.) Features are rich, including robo-dialing, auto-operator menu systems, voicemail, voice over IP, and much more.
Rather than run this yourself, you an also opt for devices powered by Asterisk, of which many can be found. This can give you many of the rapid development, security, and plugin benefits of Asterisk, without the chore and hassle of trying to install and manage the software on a computer, yourself.
The sheer power delivered by computer driven phone systems, like the modern business PBX, can do wonders for your business. After reviewing some of these features and potential offerings, you can see how wide reaching these benefits can be. It's my hope that some of the information above will help you determine the best system for your growing business.
