While it s true that most business phone systems require a substantial investment, there are many systems out there which are specifically targeted at small businesses. These systems are incredibly easy to setup, and require little to no troubleshooting. Some business telephone systems can even be modified to adapt to the specific needs of certain businesses, resulting in better performance throughout the organization.
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.
The first great feature is an auto receptionist. This will save you money from having to hire a receptionist and give your company the appearance of a large fortune 500 company. You record an interactive greeting and your customers can use a dial by name directory to find the person or department they are looking for. Many of the services out there allow you to customize so much, including letting customers hold for a particular extension or person.
Buying a new phone system for your business is not as easy as it sounds. It is not just the handsets on your desk. There are a number of factors that you need to think about and this article outlines 9 of them. Before you make a purchase of any business system you need to consider all of the points that I mention. If you dont, you could end up with an expensive system that does not actually suit your needs.
