Communications are one of the things most defining modern society. People are constantly interconnected and exchanging valuable, important information. As a business, your phone system, or "PBX," is the key to keeping communications flowing, making sure sales agents and potential customers alike are able exchange information. But what options are there in this ever-changing market?
There is certainly a whole lot of available options, when dealing with business phone systems. Discovering your particular demands and getting a product that matches them may be difficult. With the large range of alternatives available on the market, you don't want to get blindsided by unanticipated necessities going forward, after your PBX has been operating for several years. The business environment is continually changing, you will want business phone system that'll also match any future demands you could place on it.
Power outages happen occasionally. It is comical that despite having a cutting edge telephone service, you have to realise that it's going to be driven by a power network that largely runs on a power grid engineered to the needs of the previous century. And worse, a modern computerized system can be brought to its knees by a power outage. Fortunately many modern day PBX telephone systems come complete with their own built-in UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to avoid this from leaving your organization dead in the water, should the power fails. Even in the event of a blackout, the hub of your communications will remain functional, taking calls as usual.
A unique option in the market is the "Hosted PBX." Rather than running the system yourself, 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 and flexibility delivered by computer driven phone systems, like the modern business PBX, can do wonders for your business. After reviewing some of these features and potential offerings, you can see how wide reaching these benefits can be. The considerations mentioned here should help you determine what will really benefit you in a business phone system.

Mitel Mobile Extension
Traditionally enterprise cell phone users have had exceptional mobility but little or no participation in enterprise communication services. In fact, other than the ability to forward calls to a cell phone, enterprise phones and cell phones have been two separate islands of communications. Mitel Mobile Extension unites these two domains through a single number, that enables mobile workers to receive all of their calls regardless of their location or telephony device.
Any telephone including a cell phone can be linked to the users desk phone and this will act as an extension of the corporate PBX, this is known as "twinning". The user is always accessible whether in the office, at home or on the road.
The result is that users avoid missed calls and gain personal productivity. Employees can be more efficient and spend less time chasing voice mail and playing voice mail tag. Users have one common set of utilities inside and outside of the office to establish everyday communications functions such as the ability to put a caller on hold or to transfer the call.
It has also become clear that the enterprise is increasingly concerned about the need to contain cell phone costs. Studies now suggest that almost 2/3's of an enterprise's cell phone calls are made in the office or at home. Mitel Mobile Extension helps to reduce these costs by enabling Mobile Extension calls that were answered in the office or home on a cell phone to be handed back to the desk phone quickly and easily.Mitel Mobile Extension enables faster decision-making, increased customer satisfaction, and greater revenue potential through a flexible and easy to use solution for an organizations increasing mobile work force.
