Virtual PBX—Ring Central.com

You’ll have all the power and functionality of a Fortune 500 phone system but with no hardware to buy and maintain. You’ll connect remote teams and employees as if they were in the same room, and allow them all access to your telephone and fax features, no matter where they are. RingCentral’s easy-to-use online tools make configuring and managing your system a snap.

Even if your company has only one employee, you can also take advantage of multiple extensions. You can create virtual departments, make announcements and route calls from any extension to any number—your home, office, cell, etc.


Your callers will be presented state of the art messaging and options at each step they make through your system. Each system user will have unmatched functionality and flexibility to aid him/her in the efficient performance of his/her unique job responsibilities.

Answering the call
The auto-attendant will answer the caller with a professional recording (default or record your own). Callers could hear options such as “Press 1 for service, press 2 for sales consultants, press 3 for account information…” or “Press 1 for Bill Jones, press 2 for Elizabeth Harley…” or “If you know the number of the party…”

Incoming faxes
Incoming faxes are automatically detected and accepted. There is never a busy signal. Faxes are delivered to your email inbox or online account, per your setup preference.

Extensions
When the caller enters an extension number, the call will go to those telephone numbers you select for that extension: your or your employee’s home, cell or office phones; a sequence of telephone numbers; or several telephone numbers at once. These phones can be anywhere, yet they will all appear as if they are all in offices in the same building. You can even set up extensions to deliver company announcements or Fax on Demand.

Extension owner abilities
The extension owner will be able to identify callers through call screening technology and answer, or the caller will be routed to other numbers or a message mailbox. Each extension owner can personalize his/her extension with messaging and answering options for their unique work and schedule. Extension owners will have the ability to listen to messages in their own way: from computer, email or from any telephone.

Different options for different times and days
You'll be able to create different options for regular business hours, after-hours, holidays and vacations, for both the incoming main line and for each extension independently.

A record of all incoming and outgoing calls and messages will kept in your call log.

Virtual offices are great. I use a company in Australia for my work, check out www.servcorpvirtual.com.au.

Pretty easy to join, you can get your phone number online in 5 minutes and have someone handling your calls straight away.

I recommend!

I'm starting up a new company soon. Should I register a virtual office space or should I go ahead with renting a small space first? What are your thoughts?

Sorry about lateness of reply. Just launched and on line multi media magazine, www.positivelypittsburghlivemagazine.com and catching up.

Virtual offices are great, but do you need the expense initially? Unless you have a very high profile business marketing to large companies, I think that a home based office is fine.

It has become not only trendy but less distracting to meet here in the U.S. at a coffee shop. In my location, Panera's and Starbuck's serve as great meeting places for business and other meetings.

By all means register your name in your state and also trademark it and purchase your domain name, these are all ways to protect your hard work. It's a good idea also to protect your intellectual property.

I think these things are far more important than a virtual office. Dig the well before you need the water and contact a good business attorney about the things I just mentioned.
