Even though it appears that we might be emerging from depths of this double dip recession increasing cost efficiency will clearly remain an important target for most businesses. Cost cutting and low budgets will continue to be the status quo in order to ensure a complete recovery! Expenses are frequently reduced or even completely frozen, there are however many solutions out there that still enable any business to communicate effectively across a number of locations.
With the demise of the Aastra Intelligate systems there are a number of small or medium businesses who will be looking for an alternative system that needs to be an affordable solution. The Aastra 400 system does just that, providing them with full functionality worthy of the 21st century business whilst also giving them future proof development opportunities. The new Aastra 400 system provides a range of hardware that will be able to provide the appropriate solutions for the differing needs of varying office environments.
Active Communications Co Ltd are delighted to have recently become an accredited partner, allowing them to pass on valuable discounts to their customers when they make the choice to move to the Aastra 400 system.
After seeing what the Aastra 400 has to offer I would recommend that any SME does a double take at all the available functions as there are plenty on offer that will not only make a very slick team effort but also save many a company time and money in respect of quick communication particularly with multi-sited businesses. Some of the apsects that appeal to me are:
- You can now not only have conferencing facilities but also the opportunity to collectively work on a single document even though the people involved are at different locations.
- The ability to move from mobile handsets to desktop and vice-versa without the recipient of the call having any awareness.
- Intelligent networking means that up to 40 locations can be integrated so that it is seen as a single system, even collegues overseas can be treated as in-house employees!
- Home office facility gives the benefit of favourable flexibility and provision of care for the home/work lifebalance.
A great system with plenty to offer the SME of today, knocking spots off the now defunct Intelligate system of yesterday! To quote Aastra “you don’t have to adapt to the telephones as the telephones will adapt to you!”
