Ever wondered how huge businesses manage to take care of so many calls? From small-scale businesses through large businesses, the backbone of a business phone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old switchboard systems, to the vast, feature rich business phone systems of today - it's more than just a means of communication - the PBX is how your business stays relevant in a fast paced business world. Let's have a look at what it takes to integrate the effectiveness of one of them into your day-to-day work-flow.
For the most part , home phone systems are easy to choose, with not many options and a few vendors to look at. That's no big surprise, for individual use, there's not a lot of variety when it comes to needed functions or advanced abilities.
But a business phone system is surely an totally different decision. Business owners have many different needs and specific goals when it comes to communications. Features can make or break your office telephone system, influencing your ability to grow with long term future needs and growth, your means to leverage the effectiveness of the net as part of your communications network (with technologies such as Voice over ip,) and your ability to continue to be bulletproof and protected from services failures, with things such as battery backup UPS systems as well as remote administrative functionality. With your PBX playing such a vital role, let's take a look at a thing or two that you might need to consider.
Hiring an operator or receptionist is often times unnecessary, or just unfeasible if you have too many incoming calls. You'll be glad to know that most of the same features can be overseen by many of the current PBX systems. At the most basic level, these "Auto Attendant" features includes options such as allowing the caller to navigate a (potentially huge) menu system, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Maybe someday we'll even have a phone system 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 instant and informative personal, departmental, or company-wide alerts and notices. Recordings or messages can be delivered as well, 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.
If you'd prefer not fit a PBX into your business's physical location, there are hosting options available. Rather than running the system yourself, a hosted PBX is a standard business phone system, hosted and managed by a provider. The advantage is largely that you can take a hands off approach to the system, and have little investment in equipment. Calls can easily be routed to other numbers as well, such as cells and home phones. The advantages do come at a price though, with much of your system being tied up remotely, which can become a nightmare should you later switch to a local system. Transferring everything from menus to voicemail to extensions to the new system can become difficult.
We've come a long way since the days of the early telephone and switchboard. The sheer power and flexibility 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, no doubt you can see how wide reaching these benefits can be. It's my hope that some of the information above will help you determine what will really benefit you in a business phone system.
