I need some help finding an appropriate phone system for the office.

The phone system needs to have the following features and capabilities and price is not a option right now. We just need everything to work. The system is only a 3 line system right now and one of which is a fax. I know a new line willl be added soon for myself once I get out of product training and more lines are without a doubt going to be inevitable. Maybe all the way up to eight lines in the future and when we go past that, I will research deeper the VOIP options.

I work for a Cisco re-seller called Global CTI. We just changed to become a ShoreTel re-seller and there are a lot of happy people using the system. I think a lot depends on number of users. Email me if you want mtamony@gcti dot com

It sounds to me

That a smaller Avaya system is what you are looking for. They have a tendency to scale well and are easy to administer.

Any good rep should be able to make refurb options available as well, just ask.

Good luck!

Phone System Suggestion

by tony In reply to Phone

You didn't say how many users your company has. I suggest that if you plan on going to VOIP in the next 2 years that you do it now. You will spend about 8 to 10 thousand dollars on a small analog PBX and that will be useless to you if you want to go VOIP in the near future. I use and have been managing a ShoreTel VOIP system for 2 years. I really like the system and what it can do. We have over 300 phones and 7 sites all running on one server. We have fiber backbone to each location and back again. The system is solid and easy to configure. I really suggest going with a VOIP system before a analog if your company plans on growning over 50 users.

Good luck to ya.
