How our phone system works

At 4Com we offer a number of phone systems to suit your needs: HiHi, which is VoIP-based, and our traditional analogue business phones. They operate in slightly different ways and may suit certain businesses better than others. Discover more below.

What does a 4Com Phone System include?

We combine leading products with a suite of business-improving software together with UK-wide installation and support to provide an all-encompassing phone system package. The phones we offer include HiHi2, the industry leading VoIP phone, as well as handsets from Samsung and Yealink, DECT handsets from Samsung and headsets from Sennheiser and Plantronics. Read through the rest of this section to find out more about how we put all of this together to create the right phone system for your business.

Select the right devices

No business system would be complete without the right devices, so you’ll be pleased to know we offer a wide selection of phones and accessories to suit the way you work. The industry leading HiHi2 device is the the most popular of the phones we supply and it comes with video calling as standard. We also have a range of DECT handsets, headsets, mobiles and tablets for you to choose from.

Suite of software

As our Phone Systems are VoIP-based, you’ll be able to enjoy the enhanced suite of software such as the improved Voicemail application, Call Recording and Call Reporting. At the same time, you’ll be able to utilise video calling, which helps you create a more personal relationship with your business partners.

Installation process

Our installation process ensures you can get the most from your system from day one. Alongside installing the system itself, our engineers deliver thorough training to you and your team so that you know how to use your phone system.

Things to consider when looking at a new phone system

Whether this is your first time investing in a business phone system or you’re upgrading from an older system, it’s important to spend some time thinking about what your telecommunication needs really are.
If your office suffers from low broadband speeds, you might not be able to fully utilise our VoIP or the HiHi business phone systems to their full potential. Instead, you may prefer to browse our business phone range.

FAQs

Modern business phones increasingly run across internet connections, hence the acronym VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Whereas traditional systems needed an on-site PBX, this function is now performed remotely, which is what is meant by a “cloud-based” system. Cloud based systems offer businesses easy scalability options and tend to be cheaper than their traditional counterparts.

The cost of a new business phone system will depend entirely on what you’re looking for. At 4Com, we’re able to use the savings we make in areas like broadband, mobiles, calls and lines to fund a new business phone system, meaning you can get this system at little to no extra cost than what you’re paying at the moment.

You should expect your business phone system to last up to a decade. As with changes in the mobile industry however, business phones to tend to see technology upgrades every year or two which can be taken advantage of with any reputable supplier.

If you’re looking for a temporary redirect, you can do this on your HiHi device. If you’re looking for a longer term solution, we can activate account-wide call forwarding to send your main number to a mobile phone or even a group of mobile phones.

The effectiveness of high-speed internet means that many businesses do not need separate phone lines for their business. That being said, if you’re looking to make calls alongside other internet activity, a dedicated line for your communications is advisable.

Alongside an easy-to-use phone system, it’s worth getting a phone system that comes with additional features. Software such as integration with your computers, Call Recording (so that you can listen back to each call) and Call Reporting (which lets you see any calls you missed) can all have positive impacts on small businesses in particular.

Due to the need for on-site equipment, you will often find that a PBX system is more expensive than its cloud-based counterpart. The exact cost will depend on the number of handsets you need and whether you require any additional software.

Depending on the setup of your system, yes. If your phone system is on a separate line to your broadband, then it will be possible for you to remove a landline and keep your internet. If you are planning to use voice services over your internet connection, it can be advisable to have separate connections for your internet and phone use.

Our customers prefer the feature rich HiHi VoIP phone system, with its ability to hold video calls, over other systems. HiHi also comes with video support as standard, meaning that you can see us whenever you call in so that we can explain how best to resolve any issues you may have with your phone system.

It can vary from provider to provider, but we usually complete number transfers within 10 working days.

The cost of a phone system for a small business would depend on what features you were looking for. Providers can often utilise wholesale rates and other savings to fund or partially fund a new feature-rich phone system.

It is highly advisable for businesses to have a landline as this presents a greater number of possibilities for communication than a mobile connection. For example software like Computer Telephony Integration, Call Recording and Call Reporting would all be possible with a landline but not on mobile.
