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.
Flexible Call Forwarding - An office that has little to no barriers in its communication is able to accomplish more, and efficiently process and act on information in less time. Blockages to information are often unseen, but exist in confusing routing instructions or unclear passageways for clients to navigate through when calling an office looking for specific information. However, a virtual PBX eliminates issues in the information flow through features such as call-forwarding preferences and direct dial extensions. With solutions that address real problems, a virtual PBX allows for seamless connectivity and a more accurate contact approach. An added benefit to call-forwarding is the ability to enhance mobility away from the office, thus making the lines of communication value-driven with constant access to information and resources. Customers can reach the people they need to whether or not the people they are contacting are physically in the office. The connectivity a virtual PBX provides allows for greater productivity and efficiency.
Buying a business PBX system is not a spur of the moment decision. Follow the 9 tips mentioned above and you should be able to ensure that you make the right decision.
Many virtual PBX systems also handle both calls and faxes, saving you the expense of a dedicated fax line. Faxes can be sent to your email in many cases also saving you an expense of an actual fax machine or fax machines if you have several employees.
