Ever wondered how huge businesses manage to cope with so many calls? 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 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 company, or upgrade its existing system.
In most cases , home phone systems are straightforward to decide on, with almost no options and a few vendors to decide upon. That's no big surprise, for individual usage, there is not a lot of wide variety with regards to required features or advanced functionality.
But a business phone system is definitely an totally different decision. Businesses have many different needs and specific wishes when it comes to communications. Features can make or break your PBX system, influencing your ability to scale with long term needs and expansion, your ability to make use of the power of the net in your communications network (with technologies such as Voip,) and your capacity to stay bulletproof and protected from services failures, by using products such as power supply back up UPS systems as well as remote management capabilities. With your business phone system playing such a vital role, let's take a look at a thing or two that you might need to keep in mind.
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.
Not only that, but installation is a sobering topic. Many business phone systems will take special proprietary connections and wiring, extended networking, or wholly gutting your existing phone system to make way for the new. Others may be able to use a standard phone system already in place, 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.
If you'd prefer not fit a PBX into your business's physical location, there are hosting options available. Rather than installing a machine to service your business, a hosted PBX is a standard business phone system, hosted and managed by a provider. Often times, this can drive down your costs, and allow for a quick roll out, with little or no equipment needed at your places of business. 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.
No one can predict the future, or determine how their business will change and expand in the coming years. However, your choice of business phone system will be one of the crucial factors in shaping those coming years of expansion. The PBX forms the nervous system of your company, extending into each nook and cranny, delivering vital messages. Without choosing a powerful and business phone system though, that nervous system is left lacking, and your business crippled. Power and expandability are critical in finding the PBX that's the right fit for you.
