Telecommunications for the education sector
During a period of significant change and mounting financial pressures, an up-to-date communication system is more important than ever. Education telecoms technology is developing and changing quickly, raising issues of obsolescence and compatibility.
Some of the benefits of upgrading your school or college’s communications system include:
Absence Reporting & Information Services
Automated greeting system so that parents can report an absence. Other options can be set up to provide information on sports events or school and college trips where staff can record announcements.
Supports a mobility application for smartphones and tablets. This app will enable a user to access system features over the school or college’s wireless or 3G/4G mobile network.
Dedicated Anti-Bullying Line
Parents or pupils can leave messages on a dedicated voicemail on the school or college phone system, which allows complete anonymity.
Virtual Users, Voicemail & Voicemail to Email
Staff members can be set up as a virtual user where they are allocated an extension number with a voice mailbox, allowing them to receive voicemail notifications to their inbox.
Flexible & Resilient Phone System
iCS can install and support phone systems based on cloud, hybrid or on-premise technology. We can also help your school or college make considerable savings by switching
to an SIP trunking solution.
Improving Inbound Call Handling with Education Database Integration
Integrate a SIMS/PASS database to support features such as screen popping, where it will match the pupil’s records in the database and present the relevant information to the user.
Education Call Recording
Implementing call recording will ensure that the school or college has access to every inbound and outbound phone call, which is important in the area of safeguarding.
