When making an investment in a new phone system that needs to integrate with other systems, the Switchvox system makes the most sense. Regardless of how your business changes and grows, your initial investment is always protected. Using standard IVR/XML scripting, you can easily connect your database and create steps to take your caller almost any direction you can dream without having to know anything about phones or phone system software! For example, a school might offer parents a custom absentee line to quickly report student absences or a company may route new callers to sales people but existing clients are routed directly to a customer success team automatically based only on the Caller ID.

And its built-in mobility features allow calls to be made and received on your smartphone exactly as if you were sitting in front of your desk phone — even hand off an active call from one phone to the other without placing the caller on hold! With Switchvox, the possibilities are endless and the price is surprisingly affordable.

With German-engineered sound design, the new Snom series is designed to provide the small business market with the best sound quality and make it easier to add new people and integrate employees who use their mobile phone more than their desk phone.

And with the call recording option, you can monitor and review conversations at any time. Some phone models include built-in support to use a Bluetooth wireless earpiece headset or your favorite stereo noise-canceling headphones.
