“The Xorcom system provided by Phones Correct is reliable, scalable and easily configurable.” – Stephen Shenkin, Head of Service Delivery, Correct Group Ltd.
Correct Group (CG) is mainly an IT support company that provides IT support to hundreds of companies around the United Kingdom. CG has 35 users in the London office and remote and mobile users in other satellite offices. The existing systems had two units, one for ISDN and another for VoIP (outbound calls only). The existing system did not have any control over inbound call flow apart from preliminary set up done by Panasonic system provider.
CG highly considered hosted VoIP but having a contract for provision of ISDN services with a number of years remaining and a restriction on the available bandwidth to their exchange forced them to keep the existing ISDN services. A new system was required to provide more flexibility and diversity in call flow e.g., auto attendant, voicemail to email, distinctive ringtone, etc. It also had to be one single unit in order providing their existing ISDN as well as VoIP. Additional functionality, such as on demand call flow changes, adding and changing users, etc., when required was desired, as well as provision of services to the remote and mobile workers.
- On demand day night mode option
- Voice mail messages should be sent to email addresses
- Auto attendant with call menu options
- Call transfer to mobile phone during off peak hours
- Distinctive rings for internal, external and night mode
- Separate options to make outbound calls via ISDN and VoIP
- Capability of receiving calls via SIP when ISDN is unavailable
- Differentiation of inbound calls by “support”, “sales”, “accounts” and “night”
- General, group, night and individual voice mailboxes
- Call pick up
- Capability to support remote and mobile workers
Call Flow Requirements for Main Number
Main number should be answered by auto attendant, as follows:
- Option 1: will ring group of support members
- Option 2: will ring accounts department and then sales followed by support
- Option 3: will ring sales department followed by support
The inbound call for 0800 numbers must be clearly displayed and it will be followed by sales group voice mailbox.
Personal direct dial (DD) number will dial the corresponding user.
Call forwarding should support mobile during night time.
Call Queue and Voice Mail Requirements
All incoming calls must be answered either by a person or routed to voicemail in order to avoid a situation where there is no response and the caller simply hangs up.
All employees should receive their voice mail by email, in addition to having it available via the telephone handset.
The proposed solution consisted of the Xorcom XR2015, which provides connection to ISDN2 (3 BRI) with British Telecom as well as the VoIP service provider, and 23 snom 320 soft phones.
It took Phones-Correct, the integrator, three days onsite to handle the entire implementation, addressing all the requirements listed above e.g. configuring XR2000 for ISDN and VoIP, phones for remote and mobile workers, individual and Group DDIs, call forward, distinguished ring tone, call pickup, updating the phones firmware, etc.
