Hosted PBX: A Virtual Receptionist’s Assistant

Hosted PBX (Private Branch Exchange) is like giving your receptionist an extra set of hands. This futuristic Star Trek-like timesaving device can help manage small business phones systems, providing customers with a friendly call-in greeting. This allows customers to select extensions and be immediately transferred, or it allows them to speak to the receptionist directly. Virtually eliminating the need for hassle-filled, expensive switchboards, this system allows the receptionist to focus on other administrative duties. Essentially, it is cutting administrative and giving your receptionist the ability to focus on more meaningful office tasks.


Porting Your Business Phone Number

Your phone number is one of the ways your customers and vendors can reach you. You have invested in calling cards, brochures and other marketing material that carry this number. Your customers already have this in their phone book. And it has been posted in your local phone directories. Thus, it’s not a simple matter to decide to switch from one phone carrier to another, more cost-effective alternative if this means you have to change your phone number as well.
