VoIP Phone Systems
Voice over IP (VoIP) is a digital phone system that leverages Internet-based communications. VoIP converges voice, data and networking. VoIP provide enhanced Computer Telephone Integration. With VoIP phone systems, employees can make and receive calls remotely over the Internet, giving them virtual office connectivity. VoIP merges phone communications with email, fax, web conferencing and video.
Multi-Line Phone Systems
Like many businesses, perhaps you started with a phone line or two, caller ID, call waiting and voicemail to answer your line when it is busy. Your needs have grown and you need increased capabilities. Multi-line telephone systems contain the standard features you need to do well in today’s business climate, and typically add DID, night attendant, call transfer, call forwarding and the ability to add additional phone lines when you need them. There are three main types of multi-line phone systems: PBX business phone systems, Key business phone systems and KSU-less business phone systems.
PBX Phone Systems
A PBX (Private Branch Exchange) phone system provides dial tone to multiple phones in your office using fewer telephone lines. This “one-to-many” model – as opposed to having an individual service line, “one-to-one,” for each phone – works on the assumption that in any office, only a percentage of phones are used at any one time. Everyone shares service lines and there are fewer service lines than phone handsets. A PBX system requires fewer phone service lines (channels, bandwidth) and that saves you money. The PBX system manages the whole process.

The new system enabled Long County to take advantage of new features, such as free in-network calls, thereby streamlining the communication process altogether.
