Challenge: I need a School phone system that can be used in the classroom and around the School building. 

Unlike a traditional phone system, a School VoIP phone system can be used in, around and out of the School building. This allows staff can continue to communicate wherever they are.

Challenge: I need fixed phones that multiple people can use in the School. 

School VoIP phone system allows multiple users to login to a phone. This is called Hot Desking. Hot Desking is perfect for staff who work in multiple classrooms. Staff log into a shared phone that immediately behaves like their own extension. They can make and receive calls, check their messages and more. 


Challenge: Staff need their own personal phone to make sure that they aren’t sharing equipment.  

Softphones can be installed as an app on staff and School mobile phones. The app is simple to install and enables users to make and receive calls via the School VoIP phone system. Staff can communicate without losing call features whilst keeping a physical distance from one another. The app can be twinned with a user’s desk phone. The School has total visibility and control of all usage. 


Challenge: I need to hold meetings with remote working staff. 

A School VoIP phone system can hold secure phone meetings using Conference Rooms. This secure phone space allows staff to hold meetings where they can easily communicate and collaborate on projects. 


Challenge: The School phone system may need to change in a few months’ time, depending if we return to normal working.
