What is the mobile PBX and why does it facilitate remote work?

Call center software is no longer just for companies that have a call center. And likewise, they no longer work only within the fixed space of an office or company. Now, employees can have all the features of a communications manager on their own smartphone. For this, what is typically used is the mobile PBX.

Current realities have forced companies to break away from the traditional face-to-face work scheme. In fact, today’s largest companies do not depend on their physical facilities, supervisors and schedules to function. Their workers can perform their work from the comfort of their homes, or even be located in other countries. Of course, doing this is economical, efficient and possible thanks to the mobile PBX.

The online virtual PBX: more than just call center software

mobile pbx

Many would think that hiring an online virtual switchboard is only useful for companies that have a call center. To tell the truth, this type of service is rather the improvement of the old call center system for companies. In fact, its functionalities and modes of operation go much further.

What is fundamental in the virtual PBX is precisely its virtuality. First of all, this is a communications manager that only requires an Internet connection to be used. In fact, it stands out for not requiring installations or expenses within the companies that hire it. Added to this, it is virtual because its data is also stored in the cloud service.

Firstly, the online virtual PBX offers companies functions to formally manage their calls. Secondly, it now incorporates much more varied and useful modules, which allow to improve communication beyond the traditional telephone communication. From here, it is much easier to explain what the mobile PBX is.

What is the mobile PBX?

The mobile PBX is a module of the generalized virtual PBX used by today’s companies. It allows you to use the functions of such a system, but on the iPhone. This is due to the fact that the configuration of a computer with a softphone is very different from the software and operation of a cell phone.

In plain words, the mobile PBX is the main program used to manage telephone calls. It is usually used by telephone agents from a computer, with a headset and the softphone that simulates the numeric keypad of a telephone. This is how the teleoperator receives the calls that come in to the business number, can transfer them, mute them, cancel them, etc.

But a cell phone already has a numeric keypad that obeys the device’s own system, as well as an assigned number. In other words, the online virtual switchboard, although it can be opened from a smartphone, cannot work in the same way as on a computer or laptop. If the company wants its employees to answer from cell phones, it installs the mobile PBX and in this way they can work within this software.

What is the purpose of the mobile PBX?

As explained above, the mobile PBX is an application that allows the virtual PBX to work on cell phones. In this way, both the teleoperator and the company can maintain control and management of the communication. Its use allows the following functions:

Smartphone associated to the company number: operators who have the mobile PBX on their devices can receive calls made to the company number. Likewise, they can make telemarketing calls without disclosing their personal phone number.
Call functions: Having the mobile PBX allows to perform from a smartphone all the basic functions that are made from a call center. This would be to transfer, mute, put on hold and cancel the entry of a call. This is important because they are elements that allow formalizing conversations of a commercial nature.
Operator control: For many companies it is essential that their telephone agents have a mobile switchboard. This allows them to log in, register their management, keep call records and participate in statistics.

Why is a mobile PBX necessary?

Many companies allow or need their phone agents to do their jobs from their smartphone. However, doing so can mean many problems. The first of them, is in the line that is going to be used to make or answer business calls. Obviously, the operator’s personal line cannot be used for this type of communication.

In the past, companies used to buy packages of lines from traditional companies. However, maintaining this type of service was quite costly. From the mobile PBX, it is possible to work with more economical costs. The best thing is that by using this module, calls coming in on the company’s number will be forwarded to cell phones.

Another problem with the use of cellular telephony at the enterprise level has to do with management control. The virtual switchboard makes it possible to check the connection time of telephone agents, record calls and provide statistics on customer service or telemarketing. But this software works mainly on computers and laptops.

The mobile PBX becomes a practical way for the employee to use the call center system from his smartphone. In fact, this add-on module can be a great solution for certain companies.

Three scenarios where the mobile PBX is ideal

The mobile PBX is not only a solution but an opportunity. Nowadays, remote work is a trend that is very fashionable due to its multiple advantages. Also, this formula is usually much more economical because the maintenance of an office can be costly. In this sense, this module is ideal in the following scenarios:

International hiring: Many companies prefer to hire personnel in other countries for various reasons. The most common reason is that they find good workers in other places at slightly lower salaries. In many of these cases, the mobile switchboard is ideal for hiring and controlling the work of this type of worker, especially for customer service tasks.
Special situations: Situations such as the COVID 19 pandemic demonstrated that it is sometimes important to be able to work remotely. In such cases, having a mobile switchboard can facilitate the continuation of operations even when away from the office.
Virtual store: Many virtual stores are managed by very small groups of people. In these cases, a basic call center software service and the virtual switchboard module can be contracted. In this way, calls and orders can be handled formally, from a single business number and all from cell phones.

The best thing is that there are many situations in which companies can take advantage of this tool. Of course, everything will depend on the type of activity and also on the function performed by each employee.

How is the mobile PBX installed?

The mobile PBX is purchased when paying for the call center system service. Some companies in the market offer it at an additional cost. In the case of Neotel, we offer this complement free of charge to those customers who purchase our virtual PBX.

To work with the mobile PBX, operators do not need to make any special installation. In other words, no additional software is required, nor is portability. It does not matter if the agents have a telephone line with another company, as this module does not interfere with their usual call service.

To perform basic operations such as transferring calls, canceling or muting, the agent uses short numeric codes that are easy to dial and remember. In this way, the smartphone will work in the same way as the online virtual PBX works on a computer or laptop. Everything is very easy to understand and operate.

Remote customer service: a benefit of the mobile PBX

Having a call center no longer implies maintaining an office, with strict schedules and the like. Technological progress makes it possible to have teleoperators anywhere in the world with all the advantages that this implies. For this, you only need to count on an essential and even economical ally: the mobile pbx.

 

mobile virtual pbx

Today’s telemarketers can attend from the comfort of their home using their Smartphone. Today’s cell phones have everything needed for not only efficient but also controlled management. From these devices it is possible to put customers on hold, transfer them and use softphone functions.

Remote teleoperators: What do they need?

The virtual PBX is the most advanced communications technology and is possible thanks to the WebRTC Line and cloud services. We are talking about a softphone that no longer requires internal networks or large processors. Everything you need to operate is in one program with a user-friendly interface.

The great advantage of virtual call center software is that it can be operated from any location. The important thing is to have a device that allows us to establish communication and Internet access. In this sense, the mobile PBX is simply one that adapts and works on cell phones.

Instead of having a computer with programs, devices and headsets with microphones, everything works from the Smartphone. This makes it possible to hire people who work from home, regardless of their location. The advantage of this is in making payrolls cheaper in multiple ways.  One of the leading companies in the provision of the mobile switchboard service in Neotel.

Advantages of having remote teleoperators

Serving customers through remote telemarketers allows you to hire at a low cost. The simple fact of not having to maintain a department with physical equipment is a considerable saving. There are companies that have dismantled their physical call centers and have assigned this work to remote, part-time or freelance employees.

This dynamic makes it possible to get the right people almost anywhere in the world. Employment arrangements are now more flexible and advantageous for both the employees and the employer. Work continues even in the midst of difficult junctures because calls can be made from home, or even on the road.

Even board meetings no longer depend on every decision-maker being present at the company’s headquarters. Everything can be resolved via videoconference, providing continuity in the processes. This and much more can be guaranteed by contracting a mobile switchboard service.

Of course, when contracting this type of service we must opt for successful and innovative companies in the field of communication. Not all softphones are the same and the efficiency of this system will also depend on the company’s expertise.  The objective is that the communication is fluid and the new tools at our disposal, optimal.

Mobile pbx: attention inside and outside the call center

One of the biggest advantages of the webrtc line and cloud hosted software is mobility. The new technologies used in customer service allow connections at all times. Regardless of the circumstances, an operator can always be available at any time and without major complications.

In traditional call centers, it is common to seek control over schedules, call rates or sales. The goal is to get the most out of operators during the working day.  However, the way of working is changing which also implies a change in strategy and technology.

What is the mobile pbx?

As its name suggests, the mobile switchboard allows you to have all the functions of the softphone on a Smartphone. From it, you can attend and control all calls falling into the call center from a personal computer.

It is basically a matter of integrating the virtual switchboard into the cell phone of the tele-operators. In the case of some companies, it could be considered as a complementary service to the call center software.

If it is necessary to mute a call, make a transfer or put the customer on hold, this configuration will make it possible. Each action can be performed by dialing a short and simple code on the cell phone keypad. The only thing that is done is to link the operator’s mobile equipment to the working extension.

Mobile switchboard: the call center is now remote

 

 

mobile pbx Neotel

The labor present is changing for both companies and their workers. New trends and global realities invite employers to consider remote work as an option. Considering this, the mobile switchboard is a competitive solution.

The complication of schedules is being replaced by productivity. With this type of service, tele-operators can respond to customers or make sales at any place or time of day. All data is stored in the same way in the call center software records.

Night shifts can be simplified and even coordinators and company leaders can have their cell phone associated with the terminal. The important thing in any case is to look for a communication company capable of integrating all services.

Analyzing the market options

Not all companies offering call center software have mastered this new service yet. In this case, the right thing to do is to look for companies with experience. The ideal would be to set up the virtual switchboard of the business with a company that also offers the mobile one, as it happens for example with Neotel.

A fully integrated service will allow to carry out all operations with the same phone company. Planning allows for savings and a modern call center department that will be operational 24 hours a day.
