This business phone system should normally not be purchased from those vendors who have a background in data networking as they may sell "VoIP only" system. Such a purchase may increase costs unnecessarily when a hybrid / traditional VoIP system may be found to be more suitable.
When a person decides to get a virtual phone system, the business is issued a virtual number. That virtual number becomes the center for the company s communications. Callers reach the business through that number, whether it is voice or fax communications, and the calls are handled within the system. Callers can be connected to an auto attendant where they are given a customer greeting created by the business owner. Callers are then routed to an extension the business owner has set up within the virtual phone system. Calls placed can be forwarded to any phone number the business has set up. Special notifications can be put in place to ensure that the business owner is made aware that the call coming in is from their virtual number. A business owner uses a virtual phone system to manage calls, and there are specific functions that facilitate the process of handling them.
A virtual PBX is an effective tool that allows small to medium-sized businesses to operate more efficiently and effectively across channels of communication. With a dedicated virtual attendant, clients know that communication is a priority, that their needs are valued, and will be promptly and accurately addressed. A virtual PBX can help prospective clients to see small businesses as organized and efficient when they associate virtual attendants and toll free numbers with hallmarks of large organizations that they trust. A virtual PBX eradicates perception issues as well as actual barriers to communication with more streamlined access to people who need to be reached whether in or out of the office. With every call, virtual PBX adds value by giving marketing and branding initiatives the support of a dedicated toll free number. For small to medium-sized businesses looking to gain an edge over their competition, investing in effective modes of communication can pay enormous dividends when aiming to attract and service clients.
Playing announcements that callers will hear gives the business a professional image and allows the customer to choose where they want to be routed. Since most announcements consist of a wave file, you need to be sure that the phone system has enough storage space to accommodate the number of wave files needed for your business. In more complex routing, callers will often hear multiple announcements with different purposes. As an example, you might have a main greeting, a greeting that callers hear when they are on hold, and a greeting that they hear when they call after hours. If each of these greetings is different for different departments, depending on the number of departments you could easily use all of the available space. As your business grows, you can anticipate adding different departments where more announcements space might be needed.
