Our online Merlin quote request tool is considered to be straightforward. You as a buyer are in control, simply answer the different questions below to get matched up with Merlin business phone system dealers that can meet your requirements. With a few business phone system pricing proposals in hand, it's going to be much simpler for you to make a decision.
From internal communications between employees, to collaboration with remote branches, to incoming calls from clients or customers, the backbone of a business telephone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old plug-in, manually operated switchboard systems, to the modern computer controlled 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 incorporate the effectiveness of one of them into your day-to-day work-flow.
Make sure you think about some questions: What amount expansion would you expect to see, and how long should the system continue to serve you? Would you benefit more from maintaining it on site, or having a third party host it? Would you need to have your system work with multiple physical locations, and maybe forward telephone calls to other remote locations?
Answering many of these questions is generally vital to finding the best match for your company, and its PBX. Let's consider an example of a key feature choice which could add a lot to your business's telephone system, and far too often overlooked.
Hiring an operator or receptionist is often times unnecessary, or just unfeasible if you have too many incoming calls. The same tasks performed by receptionist on the phone can be taken care of by many of the business phone systems these days, and usually can do it 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 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, especially when blended with modern technology. For example, sending text messages to cell phones automated for 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.
Not all the systems on the market are proprietary. Many commercial options are powered by an open source PBX package. 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.
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.
No one can predict the future, or determine how their business will change and expand in the coming years. However, communications will forever be the core of any successful business. As you can see, the technology and flexibility of today's business phone systems is astounding. The PBX forms the nervous system of your company, extending into each nook and cranny, delivering vital messages. Without choosing a powerful and business telephone system though, that nervous system is left lacking, and your business crippled. Power and expandability are critical in finding the PBX that's the right fit for you.
