Voice Mail Solutions

The client, a small print company with around 60 employees had a growing problem with written messages being lost around its sprawling premises. Staff were often away from their desks or unable to answer calls promptly.

We installed a voice mail system onto their existing phone system, providing a personal greeting recorded by the user, together with a mail box for callers to leave a message. Other extension users and incoming callers could leave messages, indicated by a lamp on the users’ handset.  
The client reports a much improved response returning absent calls plus the added bonus of less staff time spent writing and passing messages for others. Messages can also be automatically or manually forwarded to another users’ mailbox, in case of extended staff absence.   A further enhancement to be considered is the provision of voicemail messages to the user’s e-mail in-box where a message can be played as an e-mail attachment.

DECT Cordless Solution

We were called in to look at options for a new warehouse and office complex dealing with multiple deliveries and order picking for a hardware company.

Many personnel were desk based but several supervisory and departmental staff needed to be more mobile within the building but needed to be accessible to answer both incoming and internally generated order queries.

Our proposal was a cordless telephone solution, based on DECT technology but fully integrated with the rest of the system and extension users. This enabled the key staff to have a cordless handset providing all the functions usually provided by a wired handset, but portable. Coverage was provided across the whole site to each handset, enabling users to take calls at their desks, around the ware house or even outside in the delivery bay.  
Access to all system features including voice mail was a requirement, provided to each handset user whether desk based or mobile.   Our recommendation proved to be a popular and workable solution and we have gone on to upgrade the client’s other premises using similar equipment.

Internet Telephony and VOIP

A relatively new but growing technology is the ability to use the Internet for telephone calls, mainly driven by the need to reduce costs within a company. The client, an existing customer, approached us to find out more about the possible savings plus what changes would be needed.

Our customer, a specialist contractor working in environmental controls had an ISDN 30 line providing multiple digital telephone lines incorporating a group of DDI numbers for each staff member. We looked mainly at the line rental costs and compared these to an alternative internet service called Sip Trunking. Sip uses the internet and Broadband to set up a voice link between other users, permitting calls to be made and received in the normal way.  
We were instructed to proceed and arranged for the clients existing telephone numbers to be moved onto the new service. Due to the relatively higher cost of ISDN rental, a saving of around 65% on line rental charges was achieved. As an added bonus, a saving on call charges was also possible.
