Why upgrade

Bringing school phone systems up to date 

Schools have got enough on their plates without having to worry about the potential issues of an ageing phone system.

​An updated phone system can accommodate home working as well as delivering all the features schools are used to, such as an automated attendant, voicemail for all users, receptionist consoles and more.


Features schools need for their phone system

While some schools have moved towards cloud-hosted options, others prefer a feature-rich, on-premise telephone system with handsets on desks or mounted on walls to suit the needs of their staff.
