Small businesses must constantly maintain contact with their new customers, and staff.People are usually interconnected and exchanging valuable, important information. As a business, your phone system, or "PBX," is the key to keeping communications flowing, ensuring employees and customers alike are able exchange information. But what options are there in this ever-changing market?

With the sea of services available in the market, the ideal choice here can help refrain from upgrades later, after your PBX has been operating for several years. The market place transforms quickly, you need a business phone system which will continue to match any forthcoming demands you could possibly put on it.
Hiring an operator or receptionist is often times unnecessary, or just unfeasible if you have too many incoming calls. You'll be glad to know that most of the same features can be taken care of by many of the business phone systems these days, both cheaper, and 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 PBX that will brew a pot of coffee...
More interesting are auto-dial capabilities, which can be used to provide a wide array of useful functions. 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.
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. After reviewing some of these features and potential offerings, you can see how wide reaching these benefits can be. It's my hope that some of the information above will help you determine the best system for your growing business.
