Cordless Telephone

This article will provide an overview of the best cordless phones for offices in the UK, and review the best brands and models available.

Office Cordless Phones

For many businesses, the first contact a customer will have with them is by telephone, and for that reason it's important that they invest in the right telephone system.

The phone system can create a lasting first impression of a company in their customers' minds, so businesses need systems which will offer all the features required such as call forwarding and conference calling, but additionally they will require one which fits their budget and is user friendly for their employees.

Many businesses choose to invest in cordless phone systems as this gives them greater flexibility as well as providing all the features available in traditional telephone handsets.

When comparing cordless phones, the key areas to compare include sound quality, battery life, range, usability and available features as well as cost. Cordless phones are made by all the major office telephone hardware manufacturers, offering customers a great deal of choice in the market.

The phone is designed with the cost conscious business in mind as it has an eco energy setting, meaning it uses 60% less energy than traditional phone handsets. It also offers 15 hours of talk time on battery, music when people are on hold and live recording of calls.

Additionally, Siemans offer an intercom system which is compatible with the Gigaset SL785, which means you do not have to worry about missing important visitors to your business while you are away from the front of the office and time is not wasted waiting in reception for customers or suppliers to arrive.
