Going Back to Home Phones
Do you remember the days before everyone on earth carried around a cell phone in their pocket? If you needed to get ahold of a friend, you called them when you knew they could answer. If you were out and about with your family, you didn't need to worry about staring at a little screen all day long to check emails and look for text messages. I was eager to get back to that simple way of life, which is why I banned cell phones for my family and installed traditional phone service. My blog discusses the benefits and drawbacks of traditional landlines, so that you can decide how you want to approach communication at home.
When you manage a medical clinic, the phone system you opt to go with needs to be chosen with extreme care. Since you are dealing with medical patients, there is much more to consider than a simple system to answer phone calls and offer voicemail. You have privacy issues to concern yourself with and you need to make sure patients can get through and won't end up dealing with spotty phone service.
You need more than a simple phone line for your business. You need a phone system that will support your business's needs. Any sufficient phone system will include the key service unit, the private branch exchange, or the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
#1 Key Service Unit
Key service unit phone systems are one of the more classic business phone systems. A key service unit modifies an existing phone line. You don't have to have any additional lines installed.
