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.
Replacement of Legacy Phone Systems
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:
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone systems continue to add new features, integrations and capabilities for business of all sizes and markets.
Cloud technologies allow VoIP phone systems enhanced flexibility and scalability which makes them attractive for business owners and managers.
Each year, new technologies are introduced and in 2019 there are some pretty neat advances in the world of VoIP phone systems.
VoIP Technology for Chicagoland Professionals: New Trends and Topics in 2019
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 call analytics and your 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: in 2019 we expect that more and more VoIP providers will expand integration options with popular CRM solutions. This will connect your data, your dialer and your CRM (customer relationship management). Integration is something you want to consider when choosing the 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 your VoIP phones. AI is very good at automating tasks, segmenting data and even analyzing certain sets of data. Some of the ways this is anticipated to expand in 2019:
Customer Satisfaction Analysis: As AI continues to get more powerful, VoIP phone systems with call recording enabled could see benefit for customer satisfaction purposes. AI can detect moods based on speech patterns. This data will be invaluable once these solutions hit the market.
AI Enabled Translators: For businesses with global needs, AI translators are anticipated to 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 inbound calls.
Expansion of 5G service will increase 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 (most likely). After all, a 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 near you.
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 new trends or anything related to your business phone system, give us a call at (815) 836-0030 or send an email to Contact@WeNetwork.com.

For those of you following this series, this is the third and final installment of a 3-Part Series: Enhanced Phone Features For Enhanced Business. If you’re just tuning in, make sure to check out part 1 & part 2. In the last two articles we’ve covered twinning and the different functions it has in your office as well as hunt groups and the multiple forms they come in. Both of these features can increase communication within your organization as well as productivity. In this final article we are going to dive into two more enhanced phone features: Queuing and Hot Desking.
Enhanced Phone Features: Queuing
Queuing allows calls to a Hunt Group to be held in a queue when all extensions in the group extension List are busy.
For example, when you call your local pharmacy and direct your call to the pharmacist, you are placed in a specific call queue for that department. That is a combination of the hunt group and queuing feature.
When an extension becomes free, the queued call is then presented. Queue limits can be set so that only a certain number of callers can be in line at any one time. While queuing, a caller can listen to a recorded message or be directed to leave a voicemail for call back if this is configured in your system.
Enhanced Phone Features: Hot Desking
Hot Desking allows multiple users to use the same extension on your phone system. Every user is assigned their own identity so they can receive calls and can access their own Voicemail as well as other functions.
For example, your outside sales staff who visit the office infrequently can be provided with telephony and Voicemail services without being permanently assigned a physical extension. This is also a valuable tool for remote workers. If you have employees in multiple states etc., they can still have a physical extension.
As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, this is the final portion of a three part series on phone features and how they can enhance your business. Make sure to check out the first two sections:
- Enhanced Phone Features Part 1
- Enhanced Phone Features Part 2
You have a phone system already (we hope) but there’s a strong chance you aren’t leveraging it to full potential. This month we are offering a free consultation meeting to review your current solution and what features best compliment your business. This offer expires 9/15/17 so make sure to take advantage!

According to the latest statistics, there are more than 2.5 billion Android devices in use around the world. That's a lot of devices by any reckoning. According to statistics gathered by Consumer Watchdog Which?, more than a billion of those devices are no longer receiving security updates.
That is scary. That puts an awful lot of devices at grave risk.
The reason is much simpler than you might expect. According to Google's data, some 40 percent of the Android devices in use today are running Android 6 or earlier. Those versions of the operating system are out of support and no longer getting security updates at all.
It begs the question then, what version of the Android OS are you running.? If you don't know, it pays to pull your phone out right now, go into your system settings and find out. If you're running 6.0 or earlier, it's well past time for an upgrade.
When smartphones first came out, people traded up to the latest and greatest model every year. These days, that's much less common. People are simply holding onto their phones for significantly longer periods of time than they used to. That's having the side effect that long before they upgrade, their phone stops getting security updates, which puts them and their data at increased risk.
It's something most people just don't think much about, sadly. If you're in that camp, we urge you to check your phone right now while you're still thinking about it. If you're running an older version of the operating system, download the latest and greatest, which is Android 10.
Nobody thinks they'll ever be the victim of identity theft until it happens, and by then, of course, it's much too late. Check your phone. You'll be glad you did.
