From small scale businesses through large businesses, the backbone of a business telephone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old switchboard systems, to the vast, feature rich business telephone systems of today - it's more than just a means of communication - the PBX is how things get done. Let's have a look at what it takes to bring this technology into your organization, or upgrade its existing system.
It is not like deciding on your long distance service provider or mobile phone. Within those marketplaces, the options tend to be minimal and it's mainly one size fits all.
As with everything else, the business world moves at a different rate. Features can make or break your PBX system, determining your ability to scale with potential future needs and growth, your means to take advantage of the strength of the internet as part of your communications network (with technologies such as Voip,) and your capacity to remain bulletproof and protected from services outages, by using products such as battery backup UPS systems and remote management capacities. To give you an idea of how essential these functions can be, consider how your company is impacted by this.
You really need to be prepared for anything, to run a successful organization. It's comical that despite having a cutting edge phone service, you need to realise that it's going to be driven by a power network that largely runs on a power grid designed for the needs of the last century. Fortunately many modern day PBX telephone systems come complete with their own built-in battery systems, a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to prevent this from stopping your communications. Even in the event of a blackout, the backbone of your business will remain functional, taking calls as usual.
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 telephone system (including everything from standard telephone lines, through ISDN or T1 lines.) Features are rich, including robo-dialing, auto-operator menu systems, voicemail, voice over IP, and much more.
However, if you go this route, you'll either need to administer all of this yourself, or hire an expert to setup and administer the system for you. The software can be difficult to install and configure without experience, requiring a good deal of time to familiarize yourself with it.
We've come a long way since the days of the early telephone and switchboard. The sheer power delivered by computer driven telephone systems, like the modern business PBX, can do wonders for your business. But each business has unique needs and demands, and there is really no one size fits all solution. It's my hope that some of the information above will help you determine the best system for your growing business.
