8. I run a small business from home – why use a telephone system, instead of the ordinary phones I have now?
The disadvantages of this set up are:
- Your residential calls are only accessible from the fixed phone they come in on.
- You can’t transfer calls between the phones.
- You can’t portray a professional approach by placing your caller on hold while you check information or do a quote.
- You have cables and sockets all over the place.
WITH A SMALL TELEPHONE SYSTEM, you can terminate all the lines onto the system, replace your touch phones with system extensions, and have the use and appearance of all the lines at each extension. You can identify if it’s a business call coming in, or a residential call; you can put caller’s on hold or transfer them to another part of the house, and you can integrate your cordless and fax machine into the system as well.
You can see which extensions are busy even though they are at opposite ends of the house, and transfer either residential or business calls to and from the cordless. One of the best features is for when you finish your working day, you can have the business lines diverted to the answering machine, and have only your private calls going to the house. This allows you to manage your calls and not be disturbed when you don’t want to be.
9. Why do I need a Service Contract?
Your phone system is the way your customers keep in touch with you, it is your business’ life-blood!Ai?? If calamity strikes your business, you can rest assured that you won’t have to pay a huge bill for an Emergency call out when you have an ICSolutions Service Agreement in place. Please call us on 5451 8803 to discuss your needs and ask for a quote.
NOTE: Acts of nature are not covered; check that your insurance policy covers for lightning strikes, storm and tempest.
