Zafar Majid, of alphaTALK, explains how changes in technology and decreasing costs in the hardware means there has never been a better time to update your companyâ€™s telephone equipment.
For many years, telephone systems have been perceived as being an expensive piece of kit â€“ known as a PBX (Private Branch eXchange) box â€“ stuck to the wall in the office corner. Many business owners rarely change their telephone system unless the previous one is beyond repair, or is just no longer suitable. Technology has come along to such an extent that the costs have significantly come down, thus making it much more affordable for even small business owners to have a state of the art telephone system.
How is this achievable? It is called the SIP Hosted Seats service and alphaTALK is well positioned to help the franchise industry in this very important area. This service allows you to have a full-featured telephone system without the associated investment (and technical headache!) of having a telephone system in your own office. Yes, that’s right, no ugly box on the wall. Your actual handset will be configured to connect to our technology on the network, through a simple ADSL internet connection. That is why it is called a ‘Hosted Seat’ as you do not host the equipment at your premises. More.
