Phone systems for teachers

It is easier than ever to integrate communications with staff and teachers, without the need for supplying dedicated physical telephones throughout the school premises, which can be costly and impractical depending on the age and layout of your building.

Whether you are looking for a mobile device to support your hosted telephony applications or easy and secure access to the internet that keeps your data safe we will deliver the right solution for your campus, supported by the highest level of customer service and knowledgeable staff.

From being contactable for parents, reporting absences, to routing calls to the right member of staff as they come in, our phones and software will make running your communications more effective, as well as facilitating easy reporting.
