Hosted PBX Overview

Updated 9 months ago by RM

The Hosted Payment PBX solution from BCH incorporates the 20+ years' experience we have built up managing Business Call Handling solutions for thousands of organisations, across all business sectors, from SMEs to Global Corporates.

Using the latest SIP based network technologies, our PCI Complaint Payment Processing Platform and Global Hosting Solutions, the Hosted Payment PBX is a feature rich, but an easy solution to manage the day to day needs of any business that takes Card Payments over the phone.

Inbound Calls

All your inbound numbers are delivered through the Service Scheduling where you can configure your normal working hours and make adjustments for any up coming special dates such as Bank Holidays.

Calls then be delivered directly through to your users, or via an IVR Call Flows allowing callers to choose from a series of menus to get through to the department they wish to speak to.

Depending on the volume of calls you are receiving, callers can be delivered directly to individual users, or to team of users via a Hunt-group or for busy lines callers can be held in a Queue until a user becomes available.

Users can select how to accept incoming calls on up to three different extensions, including a Softphone, SIP Handset, Mobile, or a traditional PSTN landline.

Outbound Calls

Using either a Softphone or SIP Handset users can make outgoing calls, which is fully integrated to the PBX to and includes the same options for processing card payments via our Virtual Terminal, call recording and Hold & Transfer options.

Direct Lines

All users can also be assigned a Direct Destination allowing callers to reach them directly, avoiding any IVR menus and call queuing
