What is a multi-line phone system?
Whether you’re running a customer support centre, a sales team or any type of business operation that involves multiple phone calls, a multi-line business phone system is ideal for you.
A multi-line phone system allows you to handle multiple calls simultaneously via a single device. This means that your team can place callers on hold, dial internal or external numbers, and then return to their original call. It also allows for multiple employees to answer different calls across different devices at the same time, all being transferable to the right person and ensuring no call goes unanswered.
There are many options available for multi-line phone systems, and while you can opt for specific 2-line, 4-line or 6-12-line phone systems, the most scalable option is a cloud-based multi-line phone system.
How to set up a multi-line phone systemWhile you can set up a multi-line business phone system on-premise, it requires a lot of equipment and the technical know-how to manage the system. The best solution is to use a cloud-based multi-line phone system, such as a cloud-based VoIP phone system.
