Hosted PBX

A hosted IP-PBX phone system connects all of your human resources as well as your customers, irrespective of where they are located. Head offices, branch offices, home offices, adaptable workers and even the worldwide offices can all be reachable through an individual phone number. With the Hosted IP-PBX all you need to have is one phone (desk phone or cellphone) per staff member and a committed point-to-point link or a high-speed Internet connection. You don't have to acquire or administer any accessories except the phones. With a Hosted IP-PBX System, one can handle each call that comes through with proficiency while avoiding a huge investment. A Hosted IP-PBX system shows a similar interface found in your traditional PBX. All of the other features of an IP-PBX are included, such as caller ID, transferring, fax, voicemail and music on hold. With an IP-PBX phone system, you can enjoy sophisticated call handling with features such as auto attendant, advanced call forwarding and voice mail which can be set up quickly and with just a click of the mouse.
