You want a fully featured telephone system with options like...
- Music on Hold
- Call Twinning to your mobile with Voicemail to Email
- An Auto Attendant to route your calls
However, you believe that you don't have the budget or the staff numbers to purchase this type of system.
We have the answer!
With as few as only one extension we can establish our Virtual PBX system that gives you all this and more!
What Is It?
Our Virtual PBX is deployed quickly over broadband connections without the need to purchase in-house PABX hardware and can even be deployed over multiple sites. It removes the initial capital investment and ongoing maintenance and support cost normally associated with traditional PABX systems and provides a highly scalable and flexible solution using IP Telephony.
You get a choice of handsets
What do you need?
All that is required is a stable internet connection that is capable of supporting the number of handsets you require.
If you have a Business Grade connection such as our Midband Ethernet Service then you will also need a router capable of handling the difference between normal data and IP Telephony data.
Ideally, each conversation requires about 100k of bandwidth so simply multiply that by the number of concurrent calls you want and that is the total bandwidth that needs to be allocated. For say a five handset solution with everyone wanting to be on the phone at the same time then you will need about 500k of available bandwidth. (Note that for an ADSL connection we recommend a dedicated service for the voice traffic and that the number of simultaneous conversations be limited to no more than five to six depending on your available upstream speed.)
How much does it cost? - note that all prices mentioned are excluding GST
- Each extension is $12 per month which gives two active SIP channels and also covers the hosting fee.
- Primary In-Dial numbers are $15 per month which gives you time of day call management, Auto Attendants to manage your calls and Hunt Groups
to route the calls.
- An extension Direct In-Dial number is only $3 per month.
- Setup costs start at a low $250.
Here is a scenario that you might recognise - note that all prices mentioned are excluding GST:
A successful small business has five staff members and each one needs a phone extension. Some of the staff would like to be contactable while on the road and everyone would like their own voicemail. They have five PSTN lines and are paying about $40 per month for each line. Add a fax line and the monthly service cost alone is about $240.
All they need to do is purchase some cost effective IP handsets and then for only $12.00 per month per extension and $15 per month per Main Company In-Dial number we can give each user their own Voicemail, Voicemail to Email, Extension Twinning to their mobile, a company Auto Attendant, Music on Hold, and a range of other services – at no extra cost.
They can even have personal Direct In-Dial numbers to any extension for only $3.00 per month extra per extension.
The total cost per month for this service, even with a dedicated ADSL2 high-speed internet connection, is less than the business is paying for their telephone services now... and they are saving even more on their call costs!
