Manage enterprise communications with on-premise, hybrid or cloud PBX

Each enterprise has unique interactions and requirements, necessitating a tailored PBX business phone system. We collaborate with you to design a customised solution, taking into account your unique requirements to provide the optimal PBX system.

There are a few options available for large businesses to choose from, each with its own set of capabilities, costs and requirements for installation.

Let’s explore the options available for large enterprises, including on-premise PBX systems (analogue and IP PBX) and cloud hosted PBX systems.

On-premise analogue and hybrid IP PBX systems for large businesses

On-premise phone systems include analogue PBX systems, which rely on traditional phone lines, or hybrid PBX systems, which rely on phone lines and an IP network.

We assist with fresh installations, reinstallations, upgrades and downscaling of analogue PBX systems, as well as implementing hybrid IP PBX systems. 

Each analogue and hybrid PBX system can be tailored to suit your exact requirements and support a range of features.

Cloud PBX solutions for large enterprises

Cloud PBX, also known as hosted PBX, phone systems, offer businesses the benefits of IP telephony without the need for on-premise hardware. 

Cloud PBX systems rely on a business’s internet connection/network, reducing costs associated with line rentals, the complex installation of physical hardware, call rates and more. 

Plus hosted PBX systems are feature-rich, offering a range of standard and advanced features for managing voice communications. You can also keep your landline number when moving to cloud PBX.

Purchase options for large business PBX systems

United Telecoms offer large businesses purchase options via EFT or rental over a fixed term. Equipment costs of physical PBX systems vary depending on your needs.

PBX rentals and upfront purchases for large businesses

Outright purchases via EFT allow businesses to own their hardware right away and save on the overall cost of the system.

We advise our clients to consider renting a large PABX phone system, as it is an IT-based product. By doing so, you can benefit from a consistent capital outlay and a fixed monthly operating expense, ensuring that your business always has access to the optimal solution at any given time. If you prefer to purchase the PABX system outright, you are welcome to do so. 

PABX rental terms are available for 12 – 60 months depending on your needs and budget. Short-term rental options are available.
