Because of the communications needs these days, it's important for your business to remain on top. Telecommunications is the vital to profit, as well as the most basic link in communication is your business telephone system. What you're looking for is a "Private Branch Exchange," or PBX. These powerful and technologically advanced devices are the foundation of it all. It can be difficult to determine what sort of PBX you need, though.
It's not like selecting your long distance carrier or cellular phone. Within those markets, the choices are limited and it's mostly one size fits all.
Like with everything else, the business world moves at a different speed. Features can make or break your PBX system, influencing your ability to grow with future needs and business expansion, your ability to leverage the strength of the net as part of your communications network (with technology such as Voice over ip,) and your ability to stay bulletproof and protected from services outages, with things such as battery back up UPS systems as well as remote management capabilities. To give you an idea of just how essential these functions could be, think about how your business is impacted by this.
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. You'll be glad to know that most of the same features can be taken care of 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. Now if only they had a phone system 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, with tasks like 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.
Modern software has seen a flood of high quality open-source development, and the PBX market is no exception. 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 telephone system (including everything from standard telephone 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.
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 telephone system though, that nervous system is left lacking, and your business crippled. Whatever your choice, the benefits brought by some of these new features will undoubtedly bring a serious boost to your productivity and capabilities.
