If there is anything that has been proven by the recent coronavirus pandemic lockdown, it’s that a reliable telephone system is the key to maintaining effective communication. Over the last few months Link ICT has helped many schools and businesses adapt to agile working from home by installing new VOIP phone systems that seamlessly divert calls to another landline or mobile.
These telephone system upgrades have helped many schools and businesses stay in touch with pupils, employees, customers and suppliers without the need to use personal devices or risk security, GDPR and data breaches or safe guarding protocols.
However, if having a new digital phone system would benefit your business you may be feeling a little bit daunted by the prospect of selecting a supplier, and uncertain about choosing the right system and equipment.
In 2025 BT will be switching off their analogue phone lines so now has never been a better time to choose a new, digital, telephone system.
The alternative to traditional analogue phones are SIP (or VOIP) phones. These telephones are internet based and allow you to integrate your phones with your IT network. If you chose to procure a telephone system through Link ICT not only can we provide the hardware, but we can also complete the networking needed to get you up and running quickly and painlessly. We will ensure that you have the correct router and network switch to get the most out of your telephone system in terms of reliability and efficiency.
We procure the latest telephones for our customers from our trusted providers, including Yealink and Cisco. We recommend these products to enable our customers to benefit from their lifetime warranty, providing peace of mind. We also offer our customers the option of purchasing their hardware outright or to integrate the cost of their phones with their monthly telephone contract.
Customers using our telephone systems also have the option of using us to procure their 3CX licenses on their behalf. Our longstanding relationship with 3CX means that we can purchase the software at significant discounts. Through using 3CX software we can arrange for multiple simultaneous lines and allow for easy call diversion, allowing staff to benefit from working remotely when needed. 3CX software also allows for call tracking and reporting, ensuring that you are getting the most out of your telephone system.
What is a 3CX licence?
3CX is a software-based private branch exchange (PBX) based on the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) standard. It enables extensions to make calls via the public switched telephone network (PSTN) or via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services.
