PBX (Private Branch Exchange) this is the term used to describe your typical phone switch. A PBX is an in-house telephone switching system that interconnects telephone extensions to each other, as well as to the outside telephone network. It may include functions such as least cost routing for outside calls, call forwarding, conference calling and call accounting. Modern PBXs use all-digital methods for switching and can often handle digital terminals and telephones along with analog telephones. PBX’s can date back to the late 1800’s and almost every company has one today.
Virtual PBX Call Center Products and Telecommuting Software:
The concept of a virtual call center now becomes a practical reality. Your call center workforce can now accept and make calls from a remote office or even from home. It provides all of the monitoring and control technology to make this scenario possible. With our virtual call center products, even your supervisors can work from home as well. Also consider having a phone system that answers your customer inquiries on its own, but with agents available if ever needed. This phone system can even contact your customers or prospects with announcements and alerts.
This is all possible with Virtual PBX phone system and supporting contact management and computer telephony software. No longer will your call center be hampered by factors such as bad weather preventing your agents from commuting to work. Your employees can even keep working with some illness or family condition that would typically stop them from coming into the call center. You now can hire (and retain) some of your best agents who are unable to commute to work on a regular basis. And growth is limited only by your ability to add technology or people, not office and parking space.
Web Phone Software:

Predictive dialer can automatically call your customers and pass only connected calls to your agents. With our computer telephony software, your telephone and computer work together to provide cost-saving benefits.
Virtual PBX and Call Center Phone System
The heart of your virtual call center is the phone system. Ourphone system is a virtual PBX that supports call center remote agents that log in from remote offices or from home. Our tracks each agent separately and can route inbound calls to these agents as if they were working locally. Likewise, remote agents can initiate outbound calls and our can even route predictive dialer calls to these same agents. This telecommuter phone system has voice monitoring capability that lets your supervisors audit the quality of the remote agents, ensuring that the service and support provided by your remote agents are of the highest standards.
Using “Smart” Predictive Dialing features, the software can pre-qualify prospects and only pass calls to your local or remote agents that express an interest. Since more than 90% of predictive calls result in “No Interest”, your organization can realize tremendous savings. Combining predictive and IVR features, the softwareplays a pre-recorded message and lets the called individual make touch phone selections to continue. They can talk with an agent, request a call back, or even leave a recorded message.
