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 VoIP phone system can be used in, around and out of the School building. This allows staff to communicate wherever they are. VoIP runs over an internet connection rather than traditional fixed phone lines so it can be used remotely.  


Challenge: I need to add staff members to my phone system quickly in response to changing staff rolls. 

Changes to School VoIP phone systems are quick compared to traditional phone systems. VoIP allows you to add and remove users easily so that youre only paying for what your School needs. 


Challenge: I need fixed phones that multiple members of staff can use. 

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


Challenge: Staff need their own personal phone to avoid 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 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 meetings using Conference Rooms. This secure phone space allows staff to hold meetings where they can easily communicate and collaborate on projects.
