If you’re an academy or a school, there is no doubt that communications will be crucial to your day-to-day operations to make and receive calls from parents, teachers, suppliers, etc.

Hosted telephone systems are improving working environments of schools of all sizes across the UK.

With this in mind, we look at five key benefits of hosted telephone systems and what they can do for your school.

1. Your on-demand service
There are no hidden costs with a hosted telephone system, as you only pay for what you need on a simple per user per month basis. There is no major investment in hardware making it cost-efficient as well as making it easy to add users and sites.

2. Easily controllable features
Older telephone systems can be extremely complex. With a hosted system from swcomms, you’ll have access to an extensive range of features which are operated through an easy-to-use web interface.

3. Flexible working
Your school or academy can become more efficient by enabling flexible working environments, including hot-desking, home working and integration with mobile devices.

4. One number, anywhere
Ensure you never miss a call with callers only needing one number to reach your desk phone or mobile phone. This is great if you have a headteacher or business manager that’s always on the move.

5. Disaster recovery
Unexpected events do happen. If one of your sites experiences a flood, snow or maybe a strike – a hosted telephone system won’t be affected. Calls can be quickly re-directed to another site, phone or mobile device.

A cloud-hosted telephone system from swcomms can provide your school or academy with the flexibility and scalability that it needs while avoiding significant capital outlay.
