The Educational Sector Should Embrace Cost Effective Telecommunications, Says Natterbox

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2010) - The education sector should embrace cost effective telecommunications, says Natterbox, a new provider of hosted voice services. With the introduction of the new 14-19 Diplomas, an ever increasing volume of learners being taught across multiple locations, it is advisory for the education sector to adopt more cost effective telecommunications over traditional and expensive PBX lines.

Particularly beneficial for teaching staff that need to stay in touch with several colleges and Universities which are spread over a different campus, services such as SIP trunking allow users to setup call redirects, based on location, changing it according to the user's whereabouts, the time or the caller involved.

As a result of the diverse learning locations, many staff meetings are now completed via conference call, which in some circumstances is beneficial to all parties if recorded. Natterbox champions call recording, and allows calls both internal and external, to be recorded, stored, as well as establish 'on demand' control or preset policies meaning certain types of calls do not get recorded. The service has no limitation on concurrent call volumes or the amount of calls recorded.

With a recent Which? survey revealing nearly two thirds of people wants cold calling band, members of the education sector, who already have limited time to spare in between teaching classes, should adopt intelligent telecoms solutions which offer simple call management, allowing users to block calls as well stay in control of who they talk to, meaning they don't spend time on nuisance calls, only receiving calls of direct relevance to them.

Neil Hammerton, CEO of Natterbox said: "We have received a number of enquiries from business sectors which require more cost effective and intelligent telecoms, colleges and universities are some to name a few. With many traditional PBX lines proving expensive, hosted voice solutions offer an affordable alternative, allowing users to call anywhere in the world for one fixed monthly price. In particular hosted PBX requires absolutely no hardware and is certainly more cost-effective than traditional solutions currently offered by the big players in the market."

Natterbox offers telecoms solutions which are also beneficial to the legal and financial sectors, with services such as Voice PA.
