  1. Whether you need to work on a file at the same time, speak with multiple people, or do both those things, you now can without
    having to stress about expensive phone bills and waiting for email replies.
    Hosted PBX integration is a type of service that integrates the entire channel through a single
    software interface that is provided to the user at the other end for
    communication. When shopping for phone systems
    for small office it could actually become overwhelming.
