Mountable Telephone System
A mountable phone system is usually a landline phone that can be mounted on a place, usually a wall. However, these are usually placed on flat surfaces. A landline, also known as a fixed telephone line may be cordless or hard-wired and usually refers to the workings of wireless devices or networks in fixed locations such as offices or homes.
Fixed wireless devices typically derive their power from the power source, unlike portable wireless or mobile wireless devices., which are battery-powered. While mobile and portable systems can be used in fixed locations, reliability and bandwidth are compromised compared to fixed systems. Mobile or compact, battery-powered wireless devices may be used as emergency backups for fixed networks in the event of power blackouts or natural disasters.
At BTelecoms, it is our job to keep your business connected. Small business telephone networks should have VoIP technology, multiple telephone lines and a variety of user-friendly features to improve productivity and performance. Having the right business telephone network provides small businesses and start-ups the same networking capabilities as more developed and larger organizations.
One of the hardest decisions you have to make when you settle on the best phone system for your small business is the service you choose for your solution. In the United Kingdom, businesses can choose from the telecommunications industry any number of suppliers along with features to match each type of business and the services they render.
What are the Factors to Consider when Acquiring a mountable phone system your business needs?
When buying a small business telephone system, the following are some of the things we recommend you should consider:
- what features would you like on your system?
- How many extensions are needed?
- How many lines do you need to use?
- Is your phone system able to expand with growth?
- So many sockets do you need for a line provider?
- Is there a business need to be able to align the phone system with the IT you use?
- Would you need a call to the workers working from home?
- Would you need a cell phone call, built into your system?
- Do you need the ability to find dial numbers and customer information stored on your machine called Machine Telephony Integration (CTI)?
- Would you need a data network to be built that is capable of using wireless technology?
It is important to look closely at each of these things, as the telephone system you select for your small business is critical for a variety of reasons. Communication is vital to the success of every company, no matter what field you work in. Modern telephone networks ensure that small businesses or start-ups can compete with larger, well-established firms.
As well as testing phone systems that can contribute to the success and efficiency of your small business right away, you also need to future proof of your choice by ensuring that the telephone system you chose matches the growth strategy for your organization.
Once you have answered these questions, you may start looking at which program is tailored to your needs.
How to CHoose the Right Phone System for your Business?
What is called a ‘good phone system’ will vary depending on the number of extensions and features required. In addition, developments in mobile technology are changing the way many people do business.
PBX systems allow businesses to move away from conventional in-house telephone lines to provide better communication from their mobile devices – the perfect solution for any business seeking to cut communication costs but still enjoy the latest functions such as call recording, customised on-hold music or marketing messages.
Traditional System (PBX)
If you are considering buying a traditional phone system, you will need to consider buying a phone for each employee. When you have a small company with a limited number of workers, there’s no reason why you can’t just buy the same system you have at home.
When you have several options for your staff, you may need to start using a Private Branch Exchange or PBX. This can synchronize all inbound and outbound calls, help make transfers and handle voicemail on different extensions.
A PBX used to be a wall-mounted box with each phone line was plugged in. Nowadays, these can be interactive, providing the same features as conventional hardware.
VOIP for Businesses
VoIP applications relay telephone audio over the Internet. It is important to make sure that your VoIP phones do not use the same internet connection because if many people are online at once, it can lead to calls being dropped or garbled.
The number of lines you need is dependent on the number of people you plan to be using the network simultaneously. For example, an organization with 2 people would likely need only 2 lines, an organization with 10 people would usually need 5 or 6 lines, and an organization with 50 people may need up to 15 lines.
What are some useful additional features available?
Many of the new cordless phones are more like cell phones than standard phones. These come packed with apps, but they can be trickier to use than simple handsets, so think carefully about what features you really need before you purchase them.
A Sim-card reader –
useful if you’ve saved a lot of customers on your mobile phone. Simply pop the Sim card from your mobile phone to the scanner, and you can pass all your stored numbers directly to your cordless phone.
Bluetooth compatibility –
Bluetooth-enabled phones can be conveniently connected to your mobile, enabling you to share or make calls to another user. You can also have them paired with Bluetooth headsets so that you can receive your call handsfree.
Phonebook sharing capability –
if you intend to buy multiple phones, look for one that lets you copy your phonebook. Otherwise, you’re going to have to type it in on each one. Some of the phones share the same phonebook. This ensures that every time you change the contact details on one account, the others will also be updated automatically.
Night mode –
if you don’t want to be interrupted, you may set certain phones so that they don’t ring when there’s an incoming call (though some may still flash). You can usually grant VIP status to a number of contacts so that they can get through even when this mode is disabled.
A corded phone –
a very limited number of versions contains both corded and cordless handsets. Using a corded alternative is useful if you have power outages because cordless phones are unlikely to work in this situation even if they are fully charged. That’s because cordless base stations need energy from the mains, while corded versions take power from the telephone network.
