Have you ever wondered how huge businesses manage to cope with 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 phone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old switchboard systems, to the vast, feature rich business phone 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.

While reviewing phone systems for small business environment, it's vital that you look into expandability and capabilities for future years. Getting locked in to a small PBX system which will not scale with your growing requirements. Take into consideration several of the features that a advanced business phone system can bring you, keeping an eye toward the long run.

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 brows through a touchtone activated menu, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Maybe someday we'll even have 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 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.

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 phone system (including everything from standard phone lines, through ISDN or T1 lines.) Features are rich, including robo-dialing, auto-operator menu systems, voicemail, voice over IP, and much more.

However, if you go this route, 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.

We've come a long way since the days of the early telephone and switchboard. The sheer power and flexibility delivered by computer driven phone 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. The considerations mentioned here should help you determine what will really benefit you in a business phone system.
