A VoIP phone is a specially-configured phone that places and receives calls over the Internet instead of over traditional analog phone lines. When used as a call center VoIP solution, the PBX-integrated phone features of a VoIP phone can increase employee efficiency and help project a professional image. These features can include call transfer, conferencing, call hold, and much more.
VoIP PBX is a special class of phone system that uses Voice over IP service to place and receive calls using the Internet. This service is frequently hosted from remote by the 3rd party VoIP provider, in which case it may also be referred to as a Hosted Phone System.
Business VoIP solutions in an office setting typically require a broadband Internet connection (T1, Cable, etc.) in order to ensure professional call quality. Internet connections such as dial-up or low end DSL connections can cause problems when experiencing high call traffic. As part of our free consultation, Fonelogix can perform a simple speed test diagnostic to determine your VoIP capacity.
In the event that you temporarily lose your Internet connection, you will be unable to receive or place calls using your VoIP phones. Your calls will instead go to your voicemail. If desired, you may contact a Fonelogix technical support representative to have your calls re-routed until your Internet connection can be restored.
Yes. Whether you wish to transfer local area or toll free numbers, we can provide you with the simple forms necessary to have your existing carrier release these numbers to us so that we may apply them to your Fonelogix VoIP service. This transfer can take up to 30 days to process and is subject to the terms and conditions you have with your existing carrier.
Fonelogix cloud telephone service is specially designed to start saving you money from your initial investment. Since we host the servers that manage your VoIP PBX, the only equipment you need to purchase to get started are the VoIP phones. These phones connect directly to your existing broadband connection and provide a dial tone within minutes.
As a hosted VoIP solution, Fonelogix carries many cost savings benefits to reduce the total cost of operation (TCO) of your office phone system. In the short term, you will save on your monthly phone bills with free local and long distance domestic calling. In the long term, a hosted VoIP PBX saves you money on call switching equipment that could become obsolete, or need to be replaced due to hardware failure.
Fonelogix is a fully-scalable business VoIP solution. This means that you can add lines and VoIP phones at any time without penalty. Whether you’re a booming entrepreneur or a steadily-growing enterprise, Fonelogix gives you the flexibility to ensure that you’re only ever paying for what you need. We are also constantly adding cutting-edge features, keeping you ahead of the curve with the latest phone system technology.
Our experienced team of certified networking specialists has a proven track record of delivering highly customized telecommunications solutions. If you have a specialized request for your system, we will examine your situation and provide you with a suitable solution and an implementation timeline.
One of the advantages of a hosted VoIP solution is that it can easily link together your remote or home offices as though they were in the same building. By switching calls through the Internet instead of physical phone wiring, Fonelogix users can seamlessly receive forwarded calls, transfer callers to another extension, conference in another user, and much more, even if your offices are separated by thousands of miles.
An auto attendant is a pre-recorded professional greeting that welcomes your callers and directs them to the appropriate extension on your Fonelogix phone system. With Fonelogix service, your auto attendant greeting is fully customizable. You may make new recordings at any time over the phone, or upload a new greeting through your Web Control Panel.
e911, or enhanced 911, is a telecommunications system that pairs a phone number with a physical address for the purpose of directing emergency dispatch calls to the nearest Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Since VoIP phones and phone numbers are not tied to a physical address, VoIP solutions require that users register and update the location of each phone. Fonelogix handles this for you.
