Why Migrate to Zoom Phone

For many years, on-premise PBXs served businesses well, however, the way we communicate and conduct business has changed. To stay competitive in today’s economy, companies need to be nimble since the workforce is mobile and dispersed, and they demand simple, reliable technologies. By optimising business processes, IT can free up resources to support growth or other initiatives.

Flexible PSTN (public switched telephone network) connectivity options provide maximum service flexibility for businesses planning to migrate to Zoom Phone.

Telephony Features of Zoom Phone

The cloud enterprise phone system is becoming increasingly popular among companies around the world due to its simplicity, flexibility, and cost-saving benefits. With Zoom Phone, Zoom continues to deliver seamless, frictionless, reliable, and user-friendly communication solutions.

There are a number of Zoom Phone features that help you streamline your communication infrastructure, see how Wizard IT can help you.


Call Queues

If you have a busy operation then call queues are a must-have for your business. Zoom Phone System has powerful queueing capabilities with the ability to set up queues for initial calls, department-based or even user-based. These calls can then be automatically routed to the relevant people.

Interactive Voice Response (IVR)

Auto receptionists answer calls with a personalised recording and route calls to a user or call queue. You can set up an auto-receptionist to route to an IVR system that allows the caller to use the dial pad to select forwarding options.

Recording / Auditing

Zoom Phone System provides on-demand and full-time recording, transcriptions and playback which allows you to easily archive and retrieve phone conversations.

Integrations with Leading Software Solutions

Zoom Phone has integrations with many of the leading business software solutions available on the market today, including Salesforce, Microsoft Teams, Slack, and more. This seamless integration creates frictionless workflows and improves employee productivity.

Transform a Call into a Meeting

Zoom Phone is included in the Zoom application; there is no need to install a separate app. Zoom Phone users can easily turn their phone calls into high-definition Zoom video meetings and instantly communicate face-to-face without ending the call and starting a new meeting.

Real-time Performance Monitoring

If a PBX phone system experiences an issue, system administrators will have to invest considerable time and resources into identifying the issue and getting it fixed. The Zoom Phone dashboard can monitor, troubleshoot, and diagnose any call quality or network issues, allowing administrators to identify and resolve any problems more quickly.
