What is Cloud PBX and How Does it Work?

“A private branch exchange (PBX) system is a business-grade telephone network that enables communication both within and outside your organization. A business phone system is different from residential or cell services in that it has additional service offerings, which typically include call conferencing, extension dialing, business-hour settings to route off-hour calls, customer waiting queues and hold music. Cloud PBX, also known as hosted PBX or virtual PBX, is an IP-based PBX solution that’s provided and accessed completely through the internet. Instead of hosting software on a server the way digital systems do, cloud PBX hosts all software and data in the cloud.

Cloud PBX is an internet phone system in which the provider is responsible for both housing the PBX equipment and providing your phone services. Your desk phone plugs into a router, and any calls, signaling and features are handled through a server at the provider’s physical location. The PBX is responsible for routing incoming calls, enabling call transfers to other extensions and running all of your phone system’s communications features, such as call waiting and voicemail. Your system can be managed using a call flow, which is a collection of features and rules you assign to a given phone number.” Business News Daily

67% of employees say the biggest benefits of making the switch to a cloud-based system is better call management, while over 50% of employees say that the change has improved the remote working process. This leads to increased productivity, more time to devote to outbound sales calls, and a lower level of employee frustration — meaning lower employee turnover.

In fact, studies show that these cloud phone systems can increase productivity by up to 20%, and that the average employee will save about 32 call minutes every day. This coupled with the 99.9% or higher uptime that these systems provide means you’ll have time to improve employee training, study customer feedback, improve your products/services, or devote to marketing.

Additionally, these systems are highly scalable, providing different plans for companies in every phase of business. Instead of paying for features you don’t need, you can select a basic plan and gradually add on features or upgrade to a higher tier as your business needs increase and your business grows.”
