PBX IN THE CLOUD – AN OVERVIEW OF UVOICE

So you’ve heard the term ‘private branch exchange’ (PBX) and are familiar with how businesses internally and externally communicate using telephony systems. But with the introduction of the cloud and the fast development of the telecoms industry, how is business communications keeping up to date?

Private branch exchange (PBX) has been around for decades, whether it be small telephone systems to large private branch exchanges, businesses have made use of private communication channels to improve overall communication. However, with issues such as difficulty in being able to switch systems, being locked into a specific vendor or even being constricted to a certain number of phone lines, the system can become less effective to business communications over time. We’ve put together an overview of uVoice.
