If you’re looking for a new phone system for your business, you may also be looking into getting an intercom system too. It’s bad enough trying to find a provider for one thing so why add another element into the mix. You can save valuable time (and money) by using your phone system as an intercom. In this article, we will discuss how you can use a Yo Telecom Business Phone System as an intercom and 3 reasons why you should do so!
Phone System as an Intercom – How Does it Work?
You can use a Yo Telecom phone system (with your choice of fixed or cordless phones) as an intercom to quickly and easily communicate with your staff members and colleagues. Each handset in your building will have its own extension number, for example, the first handset in your building may have the extension number 001 and the second may be 002 – and so forth. These extensions will be preloaded into your handsets so all you need to do is simply dial the extension number you would like to speak to and there you have it! Quick and hassle-free communication.
3 Reasons You Should use Your Phone System as an Intercom
1. Improve Internal Communication
You can waste lot’s of time by traipsing up and down the corridors of your building to find a certain staff member when you need to speak to them. And it’s even worse having to wait for a reply via email. By using your phone system as an intercom you can get an answer immediately! This can be particularly handy if you have multiple sites in different locations. Instead of having to phone a separate landline (which can be costly), each site can be connected through their Yo Telecom Phone System. So, if you need to speak to a staff member who is based at a different location, it’s still one easy press of a button to do so.
2. Increase Security
Not only can you use your phone system as an intercom for quick and easy communication within your business, but you can also use it as a door intercom to help improve the security of your business. This will give you more control over who is coming in and out of your building. Which will help to reduce the risk of theft and is better for health and safety regulations as you can be more accountable for the number of people in your building. This is also beneficial for insurance reasons as you will be able to pay less as you can show that you have security systems in place.
3. Lower Costs
Possibly the biggest benefit is that it can save you lots of money. By using your phone system as an intercom you only have to pay for one system. That’s one installation, one set of equipment and you will only need to pay for maintenance for one system. And to make things better, when you buy a phone system from Yo Telecom, everything is covered under one monthly bill. So there are no extra costs to worry about.
