From small-scale businesses through large businesses, 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 modern computer controlled 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 business, or upgrade its current system.
How you go about investing in and integrating a phone system in to your company depends largely on what kind of functions and services it provides, and also how you want to use it. What kind of internet connectivity does your PBX have to have? Would you need to have your service handle multiple physical locations, and perhaps forward calls to cell phones or other remote locations?
Addressing some of these questions is very important to getting the most from the system. Let's consider one example of a key feature choice that might add a great deal to your business's phone system, and way too often disregarded.
You really need to be prepared for anything, to operate a successful business. It is comical that despite having a cutting edge telephone service, you need to realise that it's going to be driven by a power network that largely runs on a power grid engineered to the requirements of the previous century. The good news is many current PBX telephone systems come complete with their own integrated battery systems, a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to avoid this from leaving your organization dead in the water, should the power go out. Even in the event of a blackout, the hub of your communications will be left unscathed.
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.
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.
Modernizing your current system, or installing your first, it doesn't matter. Upgrading your business phone system to harness the power of the current offerings is a no-brainer. Delving into the multitude of features provided by modern telephony systems is exciting and can bring huge rewards in terms of increasing your business's capabilities, productivity, and overall ability to communicate, whether it be with customers, or inter-office communications.
