Ever wondered how huge businesses manage to deal with so many calls? From small scale businesses through large businesses, the backbone of a business telephone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old plug-in, manually operated switchboard systems, to the vast, feature rich business telephone 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.
How you would start purchasing and integrating a PBX into your organization depends largely on what kind of features and services it offers, and also how you want to host it. What amount growth would you expect to have, and how long should the system continue to meet your companies telecom needs? What sort of infrastructure do you have in place already, plus can you make use of it in the new system?
Addressing many of these questions can be essential to getting the most out of the system. To help you find those answers, here's some food for consideration...
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 the caller to navigate a (potentially huge) menu system, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Maybe someday we'll even have a PBX that will brew a pot of coffee...
Having your phone system perform automated tasks can save you time and money. Auto-dialing provides a means for the system to place calls (and more) all on it's own. 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 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.
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 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.
Of course this doesn't come without downsides. You'll either need to administer all of this yourself, or hire an expert to setup and administer the system for you. The software can be difficult to install and configure without experience, requiring a good deal of time to familiarize yourself with it.
The sheer power and flexibility delivered by computer driven telephone systems, like the modern business PBX, can do wonders for your business. But each business has unique needs and demands, and there is really no one size fits all solution. It's my hope that some of the information above will help you determine what will really benefit you in a business phone system.
