Ever thought about how huge businesses manage to take care of 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 telephone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old 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 business, or upgrade its current system.
Usually , home telephone systems are uncomplicated to choose, with not many options and a few providers to choose from. That's no big surprise, for personal usage, there is not a lot of variety regarding needed functions or hi-tech functionality.
Just as with everything else, the business world moves at a different speed. Features can make or break your PBX system, determining your ability to grow with long term needs and expansion, your ability to make use of the strength of the internet in your communications network (with technologies like Voip,) and your ability to remain bulletproof and protected from services outages, by using products like power supply backup UPS systems as well as remote administrative capabilities. To give you a sense of how crucial these functions can be, think about just how your business is impacted by this.
Hiring an operator or receptionist is often times unnecessary, or just unfeasible if you have too many incoming calls. The same tasks performed by receptionist on the phone can be overseen 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 your users 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, 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, news or stock alerts, and more.
A unique option in the market is the "Hosted PBX." 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. One thing is certain though, 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.
