It doesn’t matter if this is your first new business telephone system or your tenth. Phone system features make a big difference to how your business is run.

While some of these features bring small efficiencies to how your business uses its phones, others bring systemic improvements to how phone systems are managed and secured. Keep reading for more information about key features you will receive with a new business telephone system.

The best place to start is to understand how you want to promote your business to incoming callers. Think about how you would like your new business telephone system to handle incoming telephone calls. Other things to consider would be how you integrate your mobile workforce or CRM systems into the phone system. Think about what level of administrative control you want along with new features such as telephone call recording etc.

For instance, you might want to be able to forward your calls to any device.  This is a helpful feature if you are out of the office a lot and need to have your calls transferred to your mobile. With a VoIP phone, you can even integrate your mobile phone with your office phone and take calls as though you were sitting at your desk. With a simple click of a mouse, you can tell the system where you want the calls sent to your desk, your mobile or even a colleague.

Advanced Security and Telephony Features

A phone system such as Cloud VoIP typically offers advanced security and telephony features such as;

  • Extension dialling
  • Auto attendants
  • Video Conferencing
  • Call recording
  • Call routing
  • Voicemail
  • Music-on-hold
  • Built-in Disaster Recovery

Features like call forwarding, and adding or transferring numbers from one location to another are stress-free and simple.

A business phone system is a long-term investment and is certainly fundamental to the operational lifeblood of your company.
