Our online Premier quote request tool is absolutely very simple. You as a purchaser are in control, just answer the various questions below to be matched up with Premier telephone system vendors that can meet your requirements. Having several telephone system pricing proposals in hand, it's going to be much simpler for you to make a decision.
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 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 your business stays relevant in a fast paced business world. Let's have a look at what it takes to bring this technology into your business, or upgrade its existing system.
You should ask yourself some questions: What amount expansion do you anticipate, and how long should the system continue to serve you? Would you gain more from maintaining it at your office, or having a 3rd party host it? What type of infrastructure do you have in place already, plus can you use it in the new system?
Answering a few of these concerns is generally very important to finding the perfect fit for your organization, and its PBX Phone System. To help 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 current PBX systems. At the most basic level, these "Auto Attendant" features includes options such as allowing your users to navigate a (potentially huge) menu system, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Maybe someday we'll even have a PBX 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, with tasks like sending text messages to cell phones automated for 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.
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 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.
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.
The sheer power 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. The considerations mentioned here should help you determine what will really benefit you in a business phone system.
