    A Phone System Perfect For Teachers

    A cloud based school telephone system provides a host of features to make it easy for all parties to communicate. From parents ringing reception to report an absence or speak to the headteacher through to internal communications with teaching staff around the school, our telephone systems make it easy to do all of the above.

    Using VoIP technology the system will enable the school to handle calls more efficiently than a non VoIP traditional telephone system. You have the ability to introduce a call menu so that people can get through to the person they want to speak to without having to go via reception.

    With teaching staff in classrooms delivering lessons, they may not be able to take phone calls for the majority of the day. A cloud based system will enable messages to be left for the teacher without the need for all calls to go via reception and then a message being forwarded on. Thus making it easier for people to return calls when they are available and reduce the volume of calls into one central point.

    Call recording is a useful integration in order to meet compliance and safety responsibilities. You have the ability to save and store calls that be required in the future with colleagues.
