Change can be a pain: switching to new software, upgrading technology, going through confusing manuals and instruction guides –– it’s a hassle. As such, it’s understandable why places might be hesitant to upgrade their phone system. That goes double for private schools that rely on their phones to work every time a call comes through. The good news is, you can get all the benefits of cutting-edge technology without any of the struggle that accompanies a tech upgrade. That’s because switching your private school to a Hosted VoIP system is not only easy –– it’ll actively improve the way your front office functions. Here’s how:
Getting Started with VoIP
When your private school switches over to a Hosted VoIP phone system you won’t have to deal with a messy and intricate integration process. Rather, setting up your VoIP system is as easy as turning on your WiFi. Once you’ve connected your phones to the internet, you won’t have to deal with any further complications. However if something does go wrong unexpectedly, know that with a VoIP system you’ll also receive round-the-clock IT support –– for no extra charge.
Reliable and Comprehensive Connections
Not only will a VoIP system help your teachers stay in touch with each other, but you’ll never have to worry about missing calls with parents again. VoIP systems boast a sophisticated voicemail feature that ensures you’ll never lose a call in the shuffle. Instead, the missed call will be sent to your email so you can deal with it appropriately. Furthermore, VoIP systems will never go down when traditional landline systems would. For instance, VoIP systems will remain functional during a power outage, and during severe weather –– instances when you’ll need to contact parents more than any other time. With a VoIP system, you can rest assured that you’ll never have to worry about your phone capabilities again.
Substantial Cost Savings
You may think that upgrading your phone system will cost you an arm and a leg; fortunately, that’s not the case. Indeed, you can reap all the benefits of improved connectivity with a Hosted VoIP system and save money at the same time. With a Hosted VoIP system you’ll be able to use the funds you save where it really matters –– improving your students’ education.
