Hybrid PBX and IP-based Phone Systems
We support a host of major phone systems—from Avaya, NEC, Panasonic to Toshiba— and are a certified Panasonic dealer for both a traditional PBX system,
as well as a true IP-based VoIP system. The beauty of these systems lies in
their very extensive feature set (over 800 features) and their mix-and-match
capabilities. Each system can mix analog, digital and IP phone sets to match
almost any application. Also, each system has extensive functionality
built-in for incorporating branch offices, work-at-home employees and other
We spend a great deal of time understanding all your requirements, so we can select the system and functions that are exactly what you need.
The Phones Become the Network
If you are considering an IP-based telephone system, it is important to
understand these systems are more data systems than phone systems. Unlike a
traditional PBX system, a VoIP system puts a significant burden on your data
network, and requires specific equipment and configuration to ensure
everything is running properly.
Many traditional telephone service companies lack the skills to properly
install and maintain a VoIP system. Andromeda Technology Solutions excels in
all aspects of voice and data, and will ensure you get the system that is
right for you.
Whether Cloud-based, Hosted/virtual PBX, or completely on-premises, we have the knowledge AND experience to guide you and implement your voice communication system to perfection.

We have many years of experience upgrading/replacing legacy phones systems from: ComDial, Nortel, Toshiba/Mitel,
and Samsung just to name a few. If you would like to experience service from a truly
customer-focused organization, call us when you are ready to replace and upgrade your existing legacy telephone system.
AndroPedia Tech Library
As part of our service, it is important to keep our client-partners well informed on Telephone system developments, news, and best practices. Here is just a sampling of typical items from our AndroPediaSM library archive:
The internet may be the first place a prospect or client turns to find your services but picking up the phone and dialing your office remains the number one method of contact for business.
But what happens if nobody is available to take the call?
Hopefully you have a professional voicemail set up to receive messages.
For prospects trying to reach you, response time is critical. The moment a prospect calls in and leaves a voicemail there is a strong chance that they will move on and call your competition as well.
So – how do you get a step ahead of your competition and get messages into appropriate hands when time is of the essence?
You contact your technology partner and have them install Enhanced Voicemail features on your system.
Enhanced Voicemail Features
What is Enhanced Voicemail (VM)?
In a nutshell, Enhanced VM points to features and programming that makes your messages more accessible. This takes your VM system to the next level and gives you a competitive edge in the marketplace.
There are many different enhancement features for VM systems but two stand above the rest and are more commonly used in businesses across marketplaces.
Voicemail to Email
Probably one of our most requested VM enhancements is Voicemail to Email.
This feature converts a VM in your mailbox to an .mp3 or .wav file (audio) then delivers it to your email inbox.
For example, imagine you have an outside sales rep that rarely comes into the office – without some kind of enhanced alert system, the sales rep has no way of knowing that a new prospect just left an important message on their VM.
Instead, you want to alert your sales rep the moment a prospect or client leaves a message for their extension. You don’t want to wait until they check their voicemail at the end of the day to respond to important messages.
With VM – Email, an email is sent to the sales rep right after the message is left with a convenient recording of the message. Your staff is able to handle requests/questions within minutes, prospects have a better experience and you’re a step ahead of the competition.
Voicemail Transcript technology takes the audio message someone leaves you and translates it into text. The text is then sent to either your email inbox or your cell phone.
This type of email enhancement means you can check messages on the go without interrupting a meeting or being physically present at the office. Most importantly, these features provide an almost immediate alert that you have a message waiting.
No more delayed responses due to staff members not knowing about their messages or forgetting to check their messages regularly.
If you’re interested in implementing Enhanced Voicemail features at your office, give us a call.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone systems continue to add new features, integrations and capabilities which are beneficial for businesses of all sizes and markets.
Cloud technologies allow VoIP phone systems enhanced flexibility and scalability which makes them attractive for business owners and managers.
VoIP Technology for Chicagoland Professionals: Top Features
VoIP Phone Systems can help you improve account management and client relationships . . .
Phone systems help you stay connected with your staff, vendors and clients. You pick up the phone, hear a dial tone, type in a code and connect. But what else could you get from your phone system? What other features are out there?
Call Analytics: There are many data points you can assess using the call analytics available with a VoIP phone system. Get insights into average call length, call counts, and even staff availability. You can see what teammates tend to miss calls more often, what times of day calls are missed, what times of day call volumes peak and more.
Dialer: a dialer can give your sales and marketing team a big productivity boost. This also cuts down on misdials and will increase call volume in most cases.
CRM Integration: more and more VoIP providers are expanding integration options with popular CRM solutions. This connects your data, dialer and CRM (customer relationship management). Integration is something you must consider when choosing the best solution for your business.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology will expand into new places
AI is exciting and opens up possibilities for many technologies and systems, including VoIP phones. AI is very good at automating tasks, segmenting data and even analyzing certain sets of data. Some of the ways you can use this data:
Customer Satisfaction Analysis: VoIP phone systems with call recording enabled could see benefit for customer satisfaction purposes using AI integration. AI can detect moods based on speech patterns. This data will be invaluable.
AI Enabled Translators: For businesses with global needs, AI translators can assist with conference calls and translation in real time.
Enhanced Interactive Voice Response & Auto Attendant: AI is changing the way Auto-Attendants and virtual receptionists work. Instead of a static program, AI allows callers to ask questions and interact with systems with a goal of routing calls quickly and to the appropriate destination without a full-time receptionist managing all inbound calls.
5G service increases call speed, quality and capabilities
While 5G service is available to certain areas and businesses already, this technology is not readily available all over the United States just yet. That said, as service providers invest in infrastructure, 5G will come to an area near you. When it does you will notice improvements to the functionality of your system. The cloud based VoIP phone system operates over your internet connection, so the stronger and faster your service is (5G vs. 4G), the better your experience will be. Look forward to fewer dropped calls, better call quality and decrease in service interruptions as 5G becomes available.
As always, it must be said that most or all of these functions/capabilities will be available and applicable for on-prem phone solutions, digital solutions and modern PBX phone systems.
If you are interested in discussing the future of your phone system, one of these features or anything related to your business phone system, give us a call at (815) 836-0030 or send an email to Contact@WeNetwork.com.

File this away under the least surprising announcement ever.
Actually, it's not so much an announcement as a reminder that on January 26, 2021, when Mozilla releases Firefox 85, the option to re-enable Adobe's Flash Player will be gone, effectively eliminating Flash on the browser. Firefox is the latest in a string of browsers to have made the same move.
In fact, as of early 2021, you'll be hard-pressed to find any browser that will still support Flash. It's been a long time coming, and although it's bound to cause some consternation, it's a good move.
When the internet was in its infancy, Flash was a seminal application and incredibly important to the development of the early web. Just about every decent website in existence made heavy use of Flash to enhance the capabilities of their sites.
Unfortunately, as the web matured, it became increasingly apparent that Flash had more than its share of problems. For a time, new critical security flaws were being discovered in the code faster than Adobe could patch them, and it put broad swaths of the internet at risk.
Time and technology advanced and Flash was, in addition to being increasingly less secure, an increasingly less robust web development option as competing products could do more, and do it more securely, to boot.
All of that slowly led us to a point where the major browsers began developing a roadmap to gradually phase out Flash support, and now, that day is arriving.
Some browsers have already ended support, and Mozilla will follow suit early next year. If you're still relying on Flash to power your company's website, it's well past time to find some other solution, and there are plenty of great alternatives out there. Technology is simply leaving your business behind. Don't let that happen.
