For VoIP traffic, you ll need to make sure that both your network and PBX can handle the expected call volume. There are special considerations for VoIP beyond the telephony aspect. The network will also need to be scaled out in the event of future growth and your current network configuration and utilization should be taken in to account anytime you anticipate a greater need for network bandwidth. Nothing will kill voice quality more than contention for bandwidth on the network and it s imperative that a network assessment be completed prior to VoIP s implementation.
Information and communication are the lifelines of small to medium-sized businesses. Blockages in the flow of day-to-day communication can not only prove to be irksome and inefficient, but can result in costly collateral repercussions. Inefficient modes of communication cause confusion and result in lost calls and sales. However, communication that has been optimized to do more with less boasts the potential to result in increased efficiencies and productivity. A virtual PBX allows clients to feel confident about a small business s operations and provides value-added services that can allow for clearer and more direct communication while supporting marketing and branding initiatives.
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.
Like needed space for announcements, the space for voicemails should be able to meet the needs of the business without the danger of running out of available space. Although this rarely happens, there are situations where even smaller companies receive a lot of voicemails in any one given day. This can quickly take up a lot of hard drive space so the space allotted for voicemails needs to be adequate for today s volume as well as any anticipated volume in the future. This is yet another reason why careful planning is needed when deciding on an appropriate business phone system.
