5 Ways School's can Benefit from a New Telephone System
January 7, 2019

Here are 5 ways that your school can benefit from investing in a new telephone system.

In a world of tight budgets and increased demand on schooling in the UK, telecoms may seem like an after thought; but upgrading this vital asset may save your school money in the long run.

Why should I upgrade my school's telephone system?

It's a good question - especially as upgrading and changing telecommunications is seen as a costly investment. However, by unifying your school's telephone system, Wi-Fi and broadband connection, you can actually decrease your costs.

We often get asked why schools should worry about upgrading when their current system works just fine - so here are 5 reasons why your school should upgrade.

1. Future proofing your school's telephone system.

With 30 years of experience, we understand how important telephony is to your school. We also know that your school needs a telephone system that can last long into the future and that will offer a good return on your investment.

That is why we design all of our solutions to be bespoke. Your school can see a benefit from a bespoke solution that fits your requirements, not just now, but into the future. This helps safeguard your investment.

2. Newest technology

A great way to decrease your school's telephony costs is to upgrade your telephone system. By upgrading to a new technology, you minimise the risk of costly telecom faults. You may also find that, with the right lease, your monthly payments will be less which can save you money in the long term.

Schools can reap the rewards that are associated with new technology. With integration at the forefront of most modern technology, having a telephone system that integrated with your SIMS and offers easy to use features can be a great way to streamline workflow within your school.

A great system for Schools is Mitel. Our Mitel solutions offer features that are great for schools including SIMS integration, screen popping, an absence mailbox and even wireless handsets.

3. SIP Trunks and VoIP for schools

Schools can take advantage of SIP Trunks & VoIP to help reduce their costs. When upgrading your telephone system, we know how important monthly bills can be. With SIP Trunks and VoIP, you can help reduce the cost of your monthly bills by irradiating the requirement for multiple, costly landlines.

SIP Trunks also have the added advantage of being higher quality than traditional landline calls.

4. Unifying Communications

A great way to add benefit to your school's communications infrastructure is to consider unifying your communications environment. For example, your school probably has Wi-Fi infrastructure, a telephone system, a broadband line and lines & calls all put together to create your 'telecoms'.

Why not combine these different assets 'under one roof' to reduce your businesses costs and push your schools integration to the next level. Integrating these systems together can unlock features such as VoIP handsets, mobile handoff and computer telephone integration. With Commsplus, you can also add call bundles to your system to help call costs.

5. Integration

Integration is one of the biggest benefits of investing in new telephone systems and telephony. With a new system you can easily integrate your telephone system with SIMS to provide with screen popping and more great features.

With Commsplus, you can also link sites within your schools trust. With one centralised system and smaller IP phones, you can link your smaller schools to the bigger one without the need for systems in every school. With VoIP, you can also benefit from FREE calls between sites.
