What is Hosted PBX?
Posted on February 2, 2017
Since so many companies require their employees to be on the go these days, alternative work arrangements are often required. Some work in the office, some are in the field, and some do both. Effective communication is more important than ever in business, so small and medium businesses can struggle to find a system that meets their financial and personnel requirements.
A telephone system can be quite expensive and beyond the means of a growing firm that must make every cent count. Fortunately, there is a way for companies to have the system they need at a cost they can afford.
A hosted PBX is telephone technology hosted by a third-party that delivers all of the advances and conveniences of an in-house system. This arrangement offers businesses a number of advantages.
Each PBX is unique in its design and capabilities in order to fully meet the needs of each company. You have the option of having an entirely new system centered on the PBX or, if your organization has an existing phone system, the PBX can also work within it.
Whether your company conducts its business using VoIP, cell phones, or landlines, a hosted PBX will coordinate, streamline, and improve your communications.
By having the system hosted, your company does not have to make a substantial investment at a time when capital is needed to grow the firm in other areas. On top of this, the provider maintains the system, so employee time is available for other tasks.
Long distance calls are included, along with numerous other features designed to aid businesses and increase customer satisfaction. These can include the ability to record calls and generate reports showing when and how long calls took place.
Telehop’s hosted PBX package guarantees savings of up to 90%, comes equipped with eight SIMs, the ability to be connected in 150 countries globally, and the connection of up to ten devices.
