Cloud Phone Systems

CMI supply, maintain and install cloud business phone systems

Businesses - especially with remote working - need to change and scale swiftly. The telephone is still a crucial tool for both sales and service teams within businesses.

We demand much more intelligence from our telephony today. With more remote working, call queuing, call routing, call recording and conference calling - it is no longer simply a telephone.

CMI's feature rich and business grade cloud phone system provides everything a business could need at a simple price per user per month.


Hosted Business Cloud Phone Systems

Greater scalability and adaptability

Businesses – especially with remote working - need to change and scale swiftly. New employees will require a company to adapt accordingly and add more lines. Traditional on-premise systems require extra hardware and more reliance on IT support. Cloud based systems let businesses add or remove extensions themselves, as and when, to allow for changes in call volume. Now businesses only need pay for the extensions they use.

Cloud based systems are low cost

With the ease of adaptability and little to no reliance on a support team, less time and money is wasted making system changes. With a single business phone line, other features like customised greetings, caller ID and voicemail can be added at no extra cost. Also, consider this, it’s possible to set things up entirely on employees’ smart phones.


Integration with cloud based apps

No landline can be used from within applications like Zendesk, Salesforce etc. Integrated phone systems can even show you caller details such as email addresses and other notes from within your CRM seamlessly. This is more than just a neat trick. There is strong evidence to suggest that greater integration of workplace communication systems leads to increased efficiency.


Work everywhere

Work takes place in plenty of locations beyond the office. Important calls shouldn’t be missed because someone is attending a trade show or on a train. Cloud based systems allow employees access to their office line directly via their smartphone. Whatever the location cloud technology even lets you seamlessly forward calls to other team members, without a client being aware.


Affordable access to top business features

Cloud communication systems give you access to a fully customisable system including features like call recording, voicemail, meetings, chat, collaboration tools and client analytics. These would typically be out of reach on limited budgets. Cloud based phones systems make these features affordable.
