Can Your Phone System Cope with the Challenges of a Modern School?

Since the pandemic it’s even more important to have flexible telecommunications that enable you to react quickly and efficiently to the changing situation. New IP telephony can help you do this.

• Whether it’s further local lockdowns, year bubbles being sent home to self-isolate or bad weather closures, flexibility to update parents when they call in via announcements and message options, can relieve pressure on key staff handling calls.

IP phones can be unplugged and taken to a different office or home enabling the school to stay in touch.

Mobile apps for senior leadership teams and key personnel linking them into the school’s telephone system, no matter where they are.

Cost savings on your telephony budget with free calls and cheaper line rentals.

Future proofing your telephones ready for the closure of the ISDN digital telephone network.

We can review your lines, calls, telephone system and mobiles to maximise savings.

Our experience working with schools means we can guide you through the many benefits of how moving IP technology can help your school meet some of its objectives, such as safe guarding, GDPR compliance, future proofing and fraud protection. 

All of this is becoming more important as ISDN digital lines are being phased out of the public phone network.
