The Advantages of IP PBX for Your Business

Posted on | February 18, 2014 | Comments Off

IP based phone systems provide a wide range of features and flexibility when compared to traditional systems. One benefit includes robust reporting for all aspects of your call management. If you are required to manage the sales or customer service department of your organization this type of system can deliver all the details you need. As an example, call queue statistics will tell you how many incoming/outgoing calls are occurring at your peak time of day. It is also very easy to report on your average call abandonment and track improvements as a result of staff’s training.

K&R can provide a desktop application that is intuitive to use for your complete staff. With a quick review, you will know everyone who is currently on the phone, who they are speaking with, and the length of time for the call. Advanced options like barge or call recording are only a click away.

IP PBX and the Multi-Location Advantage
One of the most powerful features of IP based phone systems is the ability to integrate across multiple locations. With the right technologies any growing number of locations have the flexibility to behave as a single connected organization. In addition to the many improvements this new technology can easily act as a single location and point of dispatch to your clients. Not only does this improve your level of customer service but it also allows your business to be agile in global changes to call schedules and staffing resources.

If your business is in the market for a new phone system, give us a call to discuss the options and benefits of all the available technologies.

On Saturday, September 28, the PEERS Network 5th Annual Black Tie Gala welcomed a sold-out crowd to raise $335,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, a San Diego-based non-profit whose mission is to provide individuals with permanent physical disabilities the support they need to get active and involved in sports. The gala, which was held at the private La Jolla Farms home of Steven and Lisa Altman, was hosted by the PEERS Network, a group of San Diego entrepreneurs whose mission is to give back to the local community.

“We are proud to host what has become known as ‘the social event of the year’ to bring together the top influencers of San Diego in support of impactful local organizations,” said Guiseppe Ciuffa, PEERS Network board member and event co-chair. “The Challenged Athletes Foundation helps thousands of individuals each year, locally and around the world, to succeed in sports – and in life. It is an honor to do our part to support their mission.”

More than 430 attendees supported the formal affair which honored Dr. David Smotrich, founder of La Jolla IVF, and welcomed professional athletes and VIPs like Bill Walton, Tony Hawk and John Carney. The evening begn with a special VIP reception where attendees were adorned in fine jewelry and watches from K. Brunini. Guests enjoyed cutting-edge gourmet cuisine from chefs like Giuseppe Fine Catering, Beaumont Eatery and CUSP at more than a dozen gourmet food stations with treats from PURE Cupcakes.

The money raised at the 5th Annual PEERS Network Black Tie Gala will provide funding for expensive adaptive equipment (like running prosthetics and handcycles), training and competition expenses to help overcome the financial barriers that often keep challenged athletes on the sidelines. “We’re tremendously grateful to the PEERS Network for selecting CAF as the benefiting charity of this fabulous fundraising event,” said Virginia Tinley, Executive Director of the Challenged Athletes Foundation. “As a charity started right here in San Diego that is now celebrating its 20th anniversary, it is wonderful to see the local community come together to celebrate the challenged athletes we support.” Read more
