The Many Benefits of Hosted Phones

May 19th, 2017 by admin

With so many features available through hosted phone systems, we understand that some people are torn. On the one hand, additional features provide more tools for improving productivity, while on the other hand they require more training and can lead to more complicated processes. Still, we believe that the benefits more than make up for the short time it'll take you to adjust.

Call features that will make phone calls easier include:

  • call recording using standard MP3 format
  • push to call for a modern-day intercom
  • call swap between devices
  • simultaneous ringing connects to all of your set up devices
  • 14 way conferencing replaces frustrating conference bridges

In addition, you can easily set up a back-up plan for emergencies. This way, customers and vendors can still reach you even if the office is closed for snow, hurricanes, tornadoes - you name it! Your callers see you as reliable and you can keep business going even during a disaster. Work from home or while on a business trip with easy mobility solutions. Receive voicemail messages through your email, so they're simple to access, save, and share. You can even take advantage of cutting-edge voice to text software!

But enough about the benefits. ATEL Communications can advise you on the best solutions and applications to suit your business needs. Take a look at our catalog of hosted phones and be sure to let us know if you have any questions.
