In a world of ever changing modern technology and advancing marketing and sales communications needs, it's hard to stay current, as well as in touch with your potential clients. Communication is the key to productivity, and the most basic link in communication is your business phone system. The standard type of system is the "Private Branch Exchange," or PBX. In the world of telephony, these powerful and technologically advanced devices are what keeps communications open between employees, offices, and the outside world. It can be difficult to determine exactly what sort of business phone system you need, though.
For the most part , home phone systems are straightforward to choose, with not many options and a few carriers to choose between. That's no big surprise, for individual use, there is not really a lot of wide variety when it comes to required options or advanced capabilities.
But a business phone system is surely an completely different decision. Companies have numerous different needs and specific wishes in terms of communications. Features can make or break your PBX system, determining your ability to grow with long term needs and business expansion, your ability to leverage the effectiveness of the internet in your communications network (with technology like Voip,) and your capacity to continue to be bulletproof and immune to services outages, by using products like battery back up UPS systems and remote administrative functionality. To give you a sense of how vital these features can be, think about exactly how your enterprise is impacted by this.
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 overseen by many of the current PBX systems. At the most basic level, these "Auto Attendant" features includes options such as allowing your users to brows through a touchtone activated menu, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Maybe someday we'll even have 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. 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.
Of course this doesn't come without downsides. 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.
"Can you hear me now?" isn't just a concern for your mobile phone. Making sure you're able to keep in touch around the office, and with the outside world is a very real and serious demand of modern business. Your selection of a business phone system will ensure that you're capable of seamless integration with other modern technology, keeping your business agile and responsive to the market's demands. Hopefully some of the topics mentioned here have given you some food for thought, while determining what you really need.
