Get fast answers to your phone system questions, anywhere you and in Internet connection


Phone systems are essential to today's business operations, although they can also be present in homes. They are made up of multiple telephones that have been connected, allowing for functions such as call transferring, private and public voicemail inboxes, intercom use, and conference calling. The size of a phone system can vary, from small office setups to complex networks used by larger businesses.


Business telephone systems come in three basic variations:


  • Key Business Telephone system (KSU) - The most fundamental system, the KSU is easy to use, with basic features and enough available connections for a small business with 40 or fewer employees.
  • Private Branch Exchange systems (PBX) - More advanced than the KSU, this system features more automation and is suitable for larger businesses with more employees.
  • Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) - The most advanced option, this system allows for international communication. It uses a computer and the Internet to function, and is the most expensive of the three systems.

When your phone system isn't working correctly, it could drive your business to a screeching halt. Don't wait around for someone to come to the workplace - the experienced technicians on JustAnswer can guide you remotely, so you can figure out exactly what your phone system needs without paying for an office visit. All you need for the answers to your phone problems is a functioning Internet connection. Best of all, you approve payment only when you're completely satisfied.
