People are constantly interconnected and being involved in those connections is crucial to keeping vital in today's economy. As a business, your telephone system, or "PBX," is the key to keeping communications flowing, ensuring employees and clients as well are able exchange information. But what options are there in this ever-changing market?
In a large enterprise, it's vital that you give some thought to expandability and capabilities for the future. Getting locked in to a small PBX system which could stagnate after a while could possibly leave you in the situation of needing to spend more overall, upgrading an existing system - or maybe that's exactly the situation you're at right now. So let's look into a few things you must take into consideration.
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 taken care of by many of the business phone systems these days, and usually can do it better than a human. 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. Now if only they had 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, 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. Recordings or messages can be delivered as well, 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.
"Can you hear me now?" isn't something you want your customers or employees to have to utter. Making sure you're prepared to deal with any communications needs that may crop up is serious demand of modern business. Choosing a good, well rounded PBX to drive your business telephone system will ensure that you're not only able to keep voice communications flowing, but will also allow seamless integration with other modern technology, such as email and text messaging. Hopefully some of the topics mentioned here have given you some food for thought, while determining what you really need.
