Many PBX's are now outdated and unsupported so many businesses are switching to the Benemen telephony service that replaces your traditional PBX and provides an integrated solution that brings together your fixed, mobile and unified communication needs. The service is hosted in the Cloud so you can replace your old access lines such as PRI or ISDN. Numbering and full PBX and call centre functionality can be delivered on any combination of fixed phone, Lync / Skype for Business client and mobile.
Nortel was once a leading player in this market, but none of their systems are supported any more. For information on other end-of-life PBX systems see below.
The good news is that you can now secure yourself with a powerful cloud based PBX provided from a robust and secure hosting environment on resilient, high performing and secure next-generation networks. For a conversation about how this could work for or whether you would like us to check the situation on your system then contact me, Dave Clarke, via this link and I'll be in touch.
