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 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 organization, or upgrade its current system.

In a large business environment, it's imperative that you think about expandability and functionality for future years. Getting locked into a limited capability business phone setup which won't scale together with your growing requirements. Take into consideration some of the features that a modern day business phone system can bring you, keeping an eye towards the future.

You really have to be prepared for anything, to operate a successful organization. It is somewhat odd to be considering innovative business phone systems, and realise that it is going to be driven by a power network that largely runs on a power grid designed for the requirements of the previous century. Fortunately many modern PBX systems come complete with their own built-in UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to avoid this from stopping your communications. Even in the event of a blackout, your clients and employees will still be able to count on communications going unimpeded, and the hub of your communications will be left unscathed.

A unique option in the market is the "Hosted PBX." Rather than installing a machine to service your business, a hosted PBX is a standard business phone system, hosted and managed by a provider. 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 delivered by computer driven phone systems, like the modern business PBX, can do wonders for your business. After reviewing some of these features and potential offerings, you can see how wide reaching these benefits can be. The considerations mentioned here should help you determine the best system for your growing business.
