Our online Mitel quote request tool is truly very simple. You as a buyer are in control, just answer the different questions below to get matched up with Mitel telephone system dealers which can meet your requirements. With several telephone system pricing proposals in hand, it will be much easier for you to make a decision.

Have you ever wondered how huge businesses manage to take care of so many calls? From internal communications between employees, to collaboration with remote branches, to incoming calls from clients or customers, the backbone of a business phone 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 phone 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 company, or upgrade its existing system.

How you go about buying and integrating a phone system in to your corporation will depend mostly on what kind of features and services it gives you, in addition to how you will want to use it. What sort of internet connectivity does your business phone system will need? Would you gain more from maintaining it at your office, or having a third party host it? Will you need to have your system handle multiple physical locations, and maybe forward telephone calls to cell phones or other remote locations?

Addressing some of these questions is very important to finding the best match for your business, and its PBX Phone System. To assist you find those answers, here's some food for thought...

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 overseen 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...

Having your phone system perform automated tasks can save you time and money. Auto-dialing provides a means for the system to place calls (and more) all on it's own. 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 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.

A unique option in the market is the "Hosted PBX." Rather than installing a machine to service your business, a hosted PBX is a run remotely, usually leased on a monthly or yearly basis. 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. 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.

Mitel Mobile Extension

Traditionally enterprise cell phone users have had exceptional mobility but little or no participation in enterprise communication services. In fact, other than the ability to forward calls to a cell phone, enterprise phones and cell phones have been two separate islands of communications. Mitel Mobile Extension unites these two domains through a single number, that enables mobile workers to receive all of their calls regardless of their location or telephony device.

Any telephone including a cell phone can be linked to the users desk phone and this will act as an extension of the corporate PBX, this is known as "twinning". The user is always accessible whether in the office, at home or on the road.
The result is that users avoid missed calls and gain personal productivity. Employees can be more efficient and spend less time chasing voice mail and playing voice mail tag. Users have one common set of utilities inside and outside of the office to establish everyday communications functions such as the ability to put a caller on hold or to transfer the call.

It has also become clear that the enterprise is increasingly concerned about the need to contain cell phone costs. Studies now suggest that almost 2/3's of an enterprise's cell phone calls are made in the office or at home. Mitel Mobile Extension helps to reduce these costs by enabling Mobile Extension calls that were answered in the office or home on a cell phone to be handed back to the desk phone quickly and easily.Mitel Mobile Extension enables faster decision-making, increased customer satisfaction, and greater revenue potential through a flexible and easy to use solution for an organizations increasing mobile work force.
