Ever wondered how huge businesses manage to deal with so many calls? From small-scale businesses through large businesses, the backbone of a business telephone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old plug-in, manually operated 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 incorporate the effectiveness of one of those into your day-to-day work-flow.
Step one you ought to take is to enumerate the telephone system requirements of your business. With the vast array of options available on the market, the best choice here can certainly help to prevent upgrades in the future, after your PBX has been running for a few years. The market transforms rapidly, you need a business telephone system that will also match any future demands you could place on it.
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 navigate a (potentially huge) menu system, 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 instant and 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.
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. With the full features of the suit, also comes the process of installing it.
No one can say for certain how their business will grow over the coming years. However, 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.
