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.
