Small phone systems can provide big benefits to your company, whatever its size.

Today's small phone systems can run on your Internet Protocol (IP) network—the same network you use for data and applications. This helps your business save money, streamline network management, improve productivity, enhance customer service, and much more. In fact, when combined with IP networks, small phone systems are far more cost-effective and powerful than traditional phone systems.

Small phone systems on IP networks allow you to collaborate in real time using a variety of applications, such as video conferencing and instant messaging, all within one easy-to-use interface. Small phone systems enable your employees to conduct business with colleagues, partners, suppliers, and customers using video, voice, data, and mobility applications.

When evaluating small phone systems, consider one that provides easy access within a single interface to such tools as:

  • Video conferencing
  • Mobile softphones
  • Voicemail
  • Database queries
  • Your customer information database

Small phone systems can be as feature-rich as you want. You can configure small phone systems on IP networks with:

  • Paging
  • Intercom
  • Voicemail
  • Automated attendant
  • 'Presence' technology
