VoIP PBX phone system

What is a PBX phone system?

Also known as a Private Branch Exchange, it’s an integral part of a business’s communications. Unlike the typical telephone set-up you would find at home, PBX systems are more advanced. These multi-line phone systems can be attached directly to a company’s LAN (local area network) and are used to share multiple phone lines for data and voice communication.

PBX phone systems provide the same capabilities as a traditional phone system or VoIP system.

PBX phone systems provide the same capabilities as a traditional phone system or VoIP system – with access to features such as voicemail, call routing, unified communications etc. However, they typically support more phones and are usually more complex to use than smaller systems.

PBX phone systems seem to be becoming less popular today. Many companies are moving towards a Hosted PBX offering instead. This is because of the cost involved when setting up and maintaining a private branch exchange (PBX) system. Many customers want the option of choosing their own phone system, like for example a hosted VoIP system. 

There are several types of PBX phone systems available, including hosted or virtual solutions and on-premise options that can be installed on your own equipment.

In the case of a standard PBX, the number of external telephone lines (trunks) and the number of internal telephone devices (extensions) are normally limited. PBX phone system users (phones or extensions) use the same outside lines to make calls to other organisations outside of the company.

Traditional phone systems can only handle so many extensions and trunks before they need to be replaced; an IP PBX, on the other hand, can handle nearly infinite expansion in terms of both extensions and trunks.

IP PBX or VoIP PBX also boast features that may not be found in regular PBX systems. These include:

  • Digital Receptionists
  • Intercom / Paging
  • Queues
  • Reporting
  • Ring Groups
  • Voicemail

P PBX phone systems are the most current and up-to-date phone and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology in the world. That’s right, they are not only better than traditional landline or traditional business telephone systems, they can cost less money every month to use. 

What is a business phone system?

A business phone system is a combination of technology that are designed to be a productive and efficient solution for your company. It is a series of systems that are designed to allow you to communicate more effectively and efficiently with your business customers.

We use the term “system” loosely because it could be a hardware solution (i.e. PBX) or a software solution (i.e. unified communications).

Regardless of the solution, a business phone system allows you to be more productive and efficient, all while saving you money.

The technology can take a variety of forms. It can be a voice over IP solution or a VoIP phone system, a computer-based phone system, a unified communications solution, etc.

The key telephone system (KTS) was one of the early forms of business telephone systems. Recently, cloud-based private branch exchanges (PBX) have replaced this.

However, business telephone systems have evolved. One of the first advances allowed users to connect to other desk phones without depending on an operator or switchboard. PBX systems now connect modern SIP (session initiation protocol) and IP phones. These are also known as VoIP systems. Users can also access their office phone extension over the internet or via a mobile app.

Additionally, modern communications have evolved beyond the traditional private branch exchange or even a simple phone system. In addition to offering the latest collaboration, customer service, and remote working technologies, unified communications offers a seamless user experience.

Video conferencing, virtual receptionists, and instant messaging are some of the advanced features offered by these systems. An online interface allows users to set up auto attendants and voice mail menus or set up custom greetings.

What is office phone system technology?

Office phone system technology refers to the hardware and software that make up an office phone system. Office phone systems are used to communicate between employees and with clients. They are designed to work well in a company’s office environment, but they can be used anywhere. In addition, they can be used to replace more expensive PBX solutions.

When it comes to office phone systems, there are numerous options to choose from. With that variety, including different technologies such as VoIP and IP PBX, it’s easy to feel a bit overwhelmed.

In a modern office, SIP / VoIP phones are connected to a PBX server via the internet. The system is also called a VoIP system for the office. This technology offers more telephone options.

What are the benefits of a modern business telephone system?

Simple office additions may suffice for a small firm. Voicemail and call transfer are basic services. However, any big organisation will be missing out on current communication options. These can improve customer service and job efficiency.

Berry Technologies has established itself as the premier IP-PBX provider, offering enterprise-grade functionality for any organisation.

Cost Savings

While older phone systems offer fewer capabilities, they tend to be more expensive to maintain and operate, resulting in higher energy bills every month. The modern business phone system is far cheaper.

Manage Calls

Modern phone systems offer an impressive range of call management options. The ability to set up call forwarding and voicemail is one example. You can also set up a way for people to call you at different times of the day and at different locations.

Call Handling

Modern business phone systems can help you handle more calls in less time. In the past, it may have been necessary to let calls go through to voice mail. But with call transfer and a slew of other features, your calls can be routed to the appropriate department or person without being left unanswered.

Customer Service

Modern business phone systems can provide features to make customers happy. For example, you can route calls to your mobile device if you’re out of the office. This means that customers are able to contact you whenever they want.


The modern business phone system has greater security than the older phone systems. It offers encryption, so calls are encrypted and safe from eavesdropping. Your data is also protected against hacking. Modern phone systems are also equipped with options to prevent unwanted calls. This means your employees can set a code to receive calls. You can also block calls from numbers you don’t want.

Phone System Maintenance

Modern business phone systems make it easy to maintain. You can install a system and get your hands on your phone number in no time. You can also upgrade the system with little disruption to your business.

More Control

Modern phone systems offer more control. This allows for more features and features to be turned on and off. The ability to forward calls to voicemail or a different extension is one example.

Mobility and remote work

Even if users are not physically present in an office, they can control their communications through the use of a web browser or a mobile phone. Calling an extension, answering incoming calls and dialling external numbers are all options available on a web or mobile app for customers to choose from. They can also check who is calling them, transfer calls, and set up call forwarding from their phones. In addition, some office phone systems provide video and business messaging capabilities as standard.

Integration with Other Software

As business applications moves to the cloud, it must be integrated with other software. For example, an IP PBX may be integrated with customer relationship management systems (CRMs). Businesses would be able to connect contacts and manage data in a centralised location as a result of this.

A modern business phone system gives you more capabilities and flexibility than a traditional phone system. Contact Berry Technologies today to find out more.
