Business Phone System History

For such a long time the traditional IP PBX phone system was the only choice if you wanted a phone system that enabled your office to have a switchboard. Being able to transfer calls from reception to any department at the press of a button is essential for any company with more than one member of staff. The IP PBX phone system was the only way of achieving this goal and was also very expensive to purchase due to being completely hardware based. With advances in technology happening on a daily basis, it was only going to be a matter of time before the IP PBX business phone system became an inferior business phone system for the office.

Business Phone System, The Present

The VOISpeed IP Phone System is a software based business telephone system that runs on your PC or PC network that enables your office to have an advanced phone system at a fraction of the cost of a traditional IP PBX phone system. Although the IP phone system is far more affordable than the old IP PBX phone system it is also far more capable due to being software based and designed to perform in what we now call the information age. IP business phone systems have an almost limitless amount of features and functions and can be programmed to complete almost any task imaginable.

The VOISpeed IP phone system is truly an amazing piece of kit and we hope you have a great time finding out all of the great benefits as much as we have.

More importantly, we hope you enjoy reading this VOISpeed IP phone system information website and are able to find what you were looking for, enjoy!

Why soft IP PBX?

You may be wondering why you would put a specialised item such as a IP PBX into a PC?

Well, a IP PBX is just a computer which has been designed to be a IP PBX. It uses unique (expensive cards) installed in to controller board within the main unit running unique (expensive) software. Should you need to add components such as voice mail, call divert, IVR's you'll have to purchase additional cards to fit in the box. The card you buy will be chosen or manufactured for your system. You will not be able to shop around for different brands and will be certainly tied to a high price. The same also goes should you need to change settings such as adding or removing a user, to do this usually means paying an engineer to visit your premises and reprogram the unit.

If you now think about it another way.. 

You have probably noticed in the last 4 to 5 years the price of computers has dropped due to mass market, high competition and better manufacturing. In using a PC, you will save a substantial amount of investment and adding a software IP PBX program to it.

So, instead of making a special box to be a IP PBX and writing software to run within it, why not just take an ordinary PC and write software to make it a IP PBX? This means that you are purchasing mass market products at prices that no hard IP PBX could match. Another reason is that hard IP PBX's are based on per user licencing which means, one extension, one licence.

With VOISpeed once you have purchased the IP PBX module you can add as many users as you wish for FREE. Voicemail, IVR's, call divert are all included in the main unit with the software and a lot cheaper to buy than a hardware card.

We are passionate about this system, we have seen them working.. We can see what it can do for your business whether large or small. It can and will grow with your business meaning your investment will be upgradeable by software indefinitely and will not get to an age where it should be replaced due to age or your company has outgrown it. When the PC needs upgrading to a newer faster one with more storage it will cost around 500 as apposed to over 4000 for a new hard IP PBX starter kit. Upgrade the PC and transfer the soft IP PBX settings across and you have a newer faster system as a fraction of the price.

The other main advantage is that being a PC it will be connected to your network. A soft IP PBX can send and receive calls via your broadband connection thus allowing you access to the many SIP providers for cheap calls. You can route outgoing calls for the best price at the time of day the calls is made. You can then add your home users as native extensions to your system. By using VPN, remote access and this system your employees can work at home like they were in the office when they could be anywhere on earth.

Advantages over traditional PBX

There are so many advantages the VOISpeed IP business phone system has over a traditional office business phone system. The VOISpeed IP Business business phone system can out perform most tasks a PBX business phone system is capable of and more, here's just a few of them.

 

Computerised Business Phone System

The IP business phone system is a computerised business phone system so it has many advantages. Because it is software based it can be fully integrated with a database, this feature alone enables you to to integrate the IP business phone system with your customer database and allow automatic credit card processing as well as data handling. This feature is truly fantastic, Every time an existing customer phones their number is recognised or the receptionist types in their reference number and is instantly given the customers full history, displaying whatever information you want e.g. payment history and if monies are outstanding, when the call is forwarded so is the information. This type of function can also be integrated with a process ordering system so if a product is requested, the recipient knows how many are left and the system can automatically order more at the appropriate time.

Although this feature does not come with the VOISpeed IP business phone system and needs to be designed specifically for each company, it is where the real advantages are. If your interested in using this type of feature for your business you will need to find a database development company that have the skill set required.

 

Work from home

If you can't get into the office, simply log onto the system remotely from home. Your PC or laptop becomes a live extension of the system for you to carry on working as if you were in the office. Receive calls, and make calls internally and externally through your business IP PBX.

 

Conference business phone system

The VOISpeed IP business phone system can be used to make conference calls between as many persons as you like. As long as each person is logged on, all can be part of a conference call to outside of the IP phone network. 

 

Phone Answering System

The VOISpeed IP phone answering system is incredibly versatile. Each member of staff can set up and record their own personal message. When the receptionist answers a call from a customer requesting to speak with someone specific but they are not at their desk, they know by looking at the VCP that they are not available but can transfer the call anyway. This enables the customer to hear the voice message and leave their own message.

Now so far there is nothing here that a traditional business phone system could not do, but if enabled the IP business phone system will record the message and then send it to the recipient via email. This feature is simply great, if your away from the office you can keep up to date with what's going on and choose to answer the most important calls. In the future you will wonder who you ever copped with it.

Text Messaging

The text messaging feature on the VOISpeed IP business phone system is a great tool that lets you send text messages to anyone who is logged onto the phone network. The text messaging feature is fantastic, being able to quickly ask questions to people in other departments or on another call to get an answer without even leaving your desk, saves a lot of time and money.

Advanced business phone system

The VOISpeed IP Business business phone system is a very advanced business phone system. Because IP business phone systems use the latest available technology, traditional business phone systems don't stand a chance and will become the business business phone system of the past.

Software based business phone systems also have the advantage of not being limited to the original specifications, unlike traditional hardware based telephone systems. Being software based, the VOISpeed IP business phone system can be programmed and integrated with database programs to create a fully integrated office data handling solution.

Office Optimisation

The VOISpeed IP business phone system is one of the simplest business phone systems to configure and use, with some of its more basic features greatly enhancing the time and resources needed to perform certain tasks. The instant messaging alone can save plenty of time by keeping staff at their desks when requesting information from other staff members. One of my favourite features is the voicemail that automatically emails messages as soon they have been recorded, you receive an email notification, click on the link and the message is played.

Above are just some of the more basic features that help the day to day operations required working in an office. This advanced business phone system will not only save your business money because it is a more affordable option but when the amount of time saved is combined together, will drastically increase productivity.

Marketing Campaign Tracking

When running certain types of marketing campaigns, it can be almost impossible to accurately track there performance. With the VOISpeed IP business phone system you can set up a database that recognises different phone numbers so you can use different phone numbers for each marketing campaign. The VOISpeed IP business phone system database can then track the performance of each campaign, producing a report demonstrating the exact number of leads obtained. Combine this function into a order processing system and not only can tell what campaign has generated the most leads but which has converted the most sales. This type of functionality is worth its weight in gold and you are only limited by the expertise of the developer you use to construct such advanced features.

Advanced Business Phone System Development

The VOISpeed IP business phone system can basically be programmed to operate virtually any task imaginable, you are only limited by your imagination and ability of your chosen application developer. The business phone systems advanced features we used had been developed by Podium Solutions who have a dedicated team of expert database development consultants who construct bespoke programs to provide clients with tailor made IT solutions.

Advanced Features, if you can think of it, you can probably do it

The VOISpeed IP business phone system comes with many advanced features as standard that are far more advanced then traditional systems but combining the business phone system with a quality application developer is where your company will truly benefit and reap the rewards.

IP Business Phone System Features

There are so many features the VOISpeed IP business phone system has over a traditional Business business phone system. The VOISpeed IP business phone system can perform every task a IP PBX business phone system is capable of and more, here's just a few of them.

Switchboard business phone system

The VOISpeed IP business phone system has the ability to act as a switchboard with as many receptionists and users as you need. Simply select which persons you would like calls to be answered by e.g. your five receptionists and all incoming calls are directed to them. The IP business phone system can even let you choose things like how many times a persons phone rings before diverting to your next choice of recipient. If your first choice is busy, the IP business phone system automatically knows and diverts the call straight to your next choice. When the call is answered by your desired member of staff, they can forward the call to the desired department with just one click.

 

IP business phone system Virtual Control Panel

Because the main workings of the VOISpeed IP business phone system is software based, the majority of its functions are displayed on your PC screen. The VOISpeed IP business phone systems Virtual Control Panel (VCP) automatically pops up in a window on the users screen when a call is received. The VCP (picture below) is very simple to use and looks just like a traditional business phone system. Some of the phones and headsets available to use with the VOISpeed IP business phone system will also have some of the functions in-built. The VCP is where you access the IP business phone systems features and main controls. 

Adjusting things like sound and forwarding calls onto other members of staff or different departments can all be operated straight from the main VCP, as well as most other common functions you need.

More advanced options are accessed via a drop down menu, which is where you can change all of the advanced business phone system settings like who receives incoming calls, voice recording and auto attendant e.g. press one sales, press two for accounts etc.
