Finding the perfect communication solutions for your business can be a lot of work. There are many things you have to consider and figure out before you can even get to the planning part. And, if you’re just getting started, you may not even have the technical background to know what you need to look for.

When it comes to enterprise-level communications, the first thing you need to look into getting is a CloudPBX. This thing will host everything you need, from your Internet phone to your call history and analytics records.

A Primer on CloudPBX

A PBX, also known as a private branch exchange, is an incredible and essential tool in business communication. It allows the people within your organization to connect with each other and with the rest of the world, whether it’s to their vendors or their clientele.

It’s basically your own private phone system. This means you can have multiple phones, use multiple numbers, and take advantage of a host of other features specifically designed to help you with your operations. It’s an old technology that businesses have used for decades, and it’s still as important now as it was then.

Back then, a PBX was a piece of physical hardware and copper wiring that had to be installed in your office premises and connected to the nearest phone lines. But, nowadays, you can also do away with all the bulky equipment by hosting it on your premises.

Instead, you can commission a service provider to give you a virtual PBX hosted in the cloud. This drastically lowers the price and eliminates the inconveniences of having to house and maintain your technology.

So, How Does It Fit Into Your Business?

The biggest advantage is going to be the flexibility and cost-effectiveness. A CloudPBX can slot easily into any business, no matter the size or type. You can customize it to cater to all your business communication needs.

And because everything is hosted online, it also means that you can access it from anywhere as long as you have an Internet connection. This gives you a lot of flexibility in your operations. You can establish offices anywhere and offer your employees work-from-home benefits with no problem to your regular communications at all. 

But the biggest advantage is the myriad of features that come with your CloudPBX. Every business has different needs, and customizing your experience to suit your requirements is essential to making the most out of your investment. Here are just a few features you have to look forward to when you work with CommPeak:

Built-In Softphone

You need a softphone to actually use a CloudPBX, and providers like CommPeak more than have you covered on that front. You can use the built-in softphone that’s both user-friendly and fully optimized to integrate seamlessly into your CloudPBX.

And, if you’re having trouble accessing that due to technical issues or simply want an alternative, we also have a WebRTC version built for your convenience. 


When you have several departments that directly communicate with customers, having an auto-attendant is essential. Once you establish what you want to do, you can easily customize it to route your callers to the right people with a simple click of a button.

There’s a lot less hassle and work involved. More importantly, you’ll have a smaller room for error from your agents and the caller will have an easier time reaching the person they actually want to speak to—it’s a win-win for everyone involved!

This is a great feature to have if you want to expand your online presence. Some places like to handle customer queries through email and text conversations. However, if you want your clients to call you, then click-to-call buttons are going to be your best friend.

It’s a lot more convenient and gives your customers an easier way to get in touch with you. You can expand your online presence through listings and a website, and your clients can still get in touch with you through a single button.

Real-Time Analytics

Real-time monitoring is essential to any business operation, and it’s no different for contact centers. How many calls are connected, answered, dropped—you need to keep track of all these things. 

When choosing a CloudPBX provider, make sure that they can track all the information regarding your operations that you may want or need. This is the best way to know if you’re meeting your objectives or if you need to rethink your strategy or make some changes in your operation.

Call History and Recordings

Having access to call history and recordings is one of those things that really helps with quality control. You can look back on previous calls to find points for improvement, both for individual agents and the entire team.

If there’s ever any issue with one of your clients, you can also listen back to their conversation to gain better context on what happened. And if you’re having trouble understanding what’s being said, you can also use the speech-to-text feature to transcribe everything into something easy to access and understand. It makes resolving issues and planning your staff training so much easier.
