Running a school is no mean feat; dealing with pupils, teachers, parents, admin staff and various other stakeholders can be vastly challenging.
The tools deemed necessary for traditional education are very different to what is required today and the last few years clearly demonstrated this.
BT Switch Off
BT recently revealed it will switch off its Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) lines in 2025, moving from traditional phone lines to faster, clearer Internet Protocol (IP) technologies instead. This has played a big part in the increase in demand for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephony for UK schools. VoIP allows voice calls, as well as video and data, to be transmitted over the internet, instead of through older PSTN lines. Schools can send faxes, host conference calls, forward calls from one location to another, use voicemail, route calls, have an auto-attendant and more.
If you haven’t already moved over to VoIP now would be a good time, it can save you money and gives you a vast array of features:
Moving to VoIP
Achieving this is quite simple: all schools need is a high-speed broadband connection. Combine this with cloud-based communications, and schools will be able to access communication methods such as calls, messages, audio, video conferencing, screen-sharing and task management from anywhere, anytime, using any device.
With uncertain times ahead and budgets being squeezed, it is fundamental we recognise the importance of fixing costs for today and the future.
HBT provides the latest business-grade communications that encompass all features under one fixed monthly cost, this includes line rental and call charges. We manage and update the telephony platform without any additional costs. The best bit is our solutions do not have any upfront costs.
