IP based PABX systems have become a popular choice among companies as this telephone system provides reliable communication at a reduced cost.
Here are some of the advantages of using an IP PABX system.
Benefits of an IP PABX System
IP PABX systems are run off software and can be accessed via your office computer. A person with some basic networking and computer knowledge can configure and update the system.
An IP based PABX system uses VoIP technology and as a result significant savings can be attained, particularly if you are making long distance or international calls.
VoIP is used for IP PABX systems and therefore no phone line wiring is need. The system is run off your computer network.
Adding more phone lines to traditional PABX solutions often requires new hardware. With an IP based telephone system it is much easier to add upgrades and extension to your network. It is also much easier to move offices and desks as there is no patching required.
An IP PABX system is computer based and as a result can be integrated with ease into your current business processes. Reporting is also user friendly as the calls are stored in an online database.
Even if someone is not in the office they can still receive calls on their mobile phone. Calls can be easily transferred because of the VoIP functionality used for the PABX system.
VoIP based IP PABX systems are software based and therefore new features can be develop quickly. Most IP PABX systems offer features such as voicemail, diverts, custom reporting and call groups.
Software based telephone systems offer some unique advantages and should be considered not only for companies looking to invest in a good PABX system but even for businesses that already have a traditional PABX System.
