If you're wanting to buy a new telephone system, one does want to make sure that you review the different options available as well as get expert advise and telephone system prices from multiple different dealers. Make sure you make use of our North Carolina Asterisk dealer quote tool below to receive prices from several different providers in your local North Carolina market.
Choosing a business telephone system can be quite a hard chore. No matter if you're just getting into the industry, or upgrading your business phone system to meet growing needs, the market has really expanded to meet today's demand for constant communication and collaboration.
It is not like deciding on your long-distance carrier or mobile phone. In those marketplaces, the options tend to be minimal and it is mainly one size fits all.
But a PBX is an completely different decision. Businesses have a variety of different needs and particular needs with regards to communications. Features can make or break your PBX system, determining your ability to scale with potential future needs and business expansion, your means to leverage the strength of the internet as part of your communications network (with technology such as Voip,) and your capacity to continue to be bulletproof and protected from services failures, by using things such as battery back-up UPS systems as well as remote administrative capabilities. To give you an idea of how essential these functions can be, think about exactly how your company is impacted by this.
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 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, 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.
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 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 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.
The sheer power delivered by computer driven telephone systems, like the modern business PBX, can do wonders for your business. After reviewing some of these features and potential offerings, no doubt you can see how wide reaching these benefits can be. It's my hope that some of the information above will help you determine what will really benefit you in a business phone system.
