Dropped calls, poor audio quality, escalating fees—these are all indicators that it is time to upgrade your current communication platform.
Outdated phone systems are often difficult to integrate with existing systems and lack enhanced feature sets that can boost security and increase productivity. Location-restrictive voice platforms require staff to be physically present to place calls or access their voicemail, significantly hindering their ability to communicate when they are away from their desks or offices. Older systems also require regular maintenance and upgrades to ensure they are protected and functioning optimally.
Hosted VoIP solutions are designed to help organizations streamline their communications, cut costs, and introduce a new level of efficiency, security, and connectivity that traditional phone services just can’t deliver.
Voice over IP (VoIP) is scalable and offers a tremendous amount of flexibility—enabling organizations to deploy communications at one site, multiple sites, or campus-wide. School districts can add one extension or an entire school.
Missing important calls or information can create stress, miscommunications, and decrease efficiency. ENA SmartVoice Mobile makes your tech support staff accessible, no matter where they are on campus. Even when cellular connections are down, mobile VoIP users can stay connected by making and receiving calls to and from their work extensions.
With a hosted VoIP solution like ENA SmartVoice, there’s no outlay of capital expenditure other than the phones themselves—only a flat monthly rate that delivers savings and a lower cost of ownership over traditional on-premises systems. Its value rises while that of aging, underperforming on-premises systems only declines. VoIP allows your organization to save time and effort that otherwise would have been spent on additional infrastructure, project management, and staffing. The saved time and budget dollars can be redirected to support and fund other critical projects and priorities.
With hosted VoIP, staff can quickly make name changes and PIN resets, create call groups, configure automated attendant and users’ phones, pull call detail records, configure zone paging, and so much more.

As education and library communities make the shift to advanced, hosted technologies, it is critical to implement solutions that minimize the burden on their limited resources.
