Our online ShoreTel quote request tool is actually quite simple. You as a purchaser are in control, just answer the various questions below to get matched up with ShoreTel telephone system dealers that can meet your requirements. Having several telephone system pricing proposals in hand, it's going to be much easier for you to make a decision.
From small scale businesses through large businesses, 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 bring this technology into your business, or upgrade its existing system.
In a small enterprise, it's vital that you look into expandability and features for future years. Getting locked into a reduced capability business telephone setup which won't scale along with your growing needs. Why don't we take a look at a couple of things you need to take into account.
Cabinet space and installation requirements are far too often overlooked. A business PBX can vary in size from tiny to huge. A dazzling array of features is no small comfort if you fail to account for the amount of space the unit will take up, especially if space is a consideration.
You'll also need to take into consideration what your current infrastructure is, in regard to telephony. Many business phone systems will take special proprietary setups, extended networking, or wholly gutting your existing phone system to make way for the new. Others may be able to use a standard telephone system, or even your basic computer network - though you may also end up sacrificing features for flexibility and convenience. Many times, the proprietary setups use their special connectors and wiring to deliver more data and extra features.
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 flexibility and low equipment investment can make this an attractive option, or one to consider while you weight the benefits of more powerful installations at your place of business.
The sheer power and flexibility delivered by computer driven telephone 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.
