Trial Balloon of Small Office Phone Syetem

2016-09-04 22:36:31.945134+00 by meuon 4 comments

I'm trying to figure out: Is there a still a small niche market for small (<= 20 handset) office phone systems (VoIP) bundled with local and long distance and various services? Everyone I know is using their mobile for everything, even in office. But I hang with geeks.

And i asked on a geek blog. Time to go ask on LinkedIn. That's the target market: BizDev Sales Droids.

Yeah, I think unless your business is taking phone calls, mobile with a Google Voice like add-on is pretty much the current state of the art. Many companies are removing voice mail and voice messaging from their systems to try to encourage async text mechanisms...

Think of a base with a handset that connects to your cell phone by bluetooth and to the rest of the bases in your office like an intercom. You could use VOIP for the connection. Maybe even have it forward intercom calls to your cell phone while you are away. Maybe with a hook to your PC for answering text messages while you are at your desk.

I'd like that.
