Avaya IP Office User“IP Office is so easy to use”

Time is money and in a fast paced business environment, the last thing you need is to spend hours reading a manual to make one small change. That’s why IP Office keeps it simple.  From small changes such as adding a new member of staff, through to big changes such as adding an entire new branch, you’ll find the system quick and easy to work with.

With IP Office, you can manage your system securely from anywhere – even from home. In fact, you can manage all of your offices from a single location, saving time, reducing the number of staff needed and reducing travel costs. You can easily integrate the system with a wide range of existing popular applications such as Microsoft Outlook and it’s simple to add or move phones or other devices – just plug them in and turn them on! IP Office reads  the IP address of the device automatically so even if you move it from home to the office, there’s no need for more admin. You can also choose from smart ‘typical users‘ or quickly set up your own custom features to meet your employees’ exact needs.

Avaya’s flexible IP Office system comes in three different editions to meet every company’s needs. Moving to the next edition is quick and easy, so smaller businesses can be confident that these telephone systems will grow with them.

IP Office Preferred Edition: responsive and professional

Offering your business ten times more voice messaging capacity than the Essential Edition, as well as the ability to handle up to 40 calls at the same time, the IP Office Preferred Edition delivers a great set of features.  The choice for businesses looking to utilise communications in order to operate  more effectively and efficiently.

Other great features include:

  • Recognition of your best  customers and a personal greeting
  • Call forwarding to virtually anywhere with flexible options by extension, times  of day and incoming  numbers or area codes.
  • Automated service prompts giving callers waiting time, promotions  or other communications to add value to their overall experience.
  • Call recording allowing you to closely monitor your business operations, reduce legal risks and potentially  meet industry-compliance criteria.

IP Office Advanced Edition: for companies that need to be the best.

The IP Office Advanced Edition is there to help businesses who need to deliver exceptional levels of customer service both to new and repeat customers.

As well as the features of earlier editions, the Advanced Edition provides:

  • Automated 24/7 self service:  Giving your callers everything they need automatically, allowing service around the clock, from directions and opening hours to the status of their order.

  • See a report of all calls in progress vs. historical reports
  • Get real time information on representatives and take action as needed

What our customers say:

Call recording is an invaluable tool allows me to search for calls taken by individual team members, and listen in, even when I’m not in the office.  This allows me to provide them with detailed individual feedback and training.  Our system call recording is now an integral part of our quality assurance program and has helped us really drive forward standards of customer service excellence over the last year.

So that you can provide exactly what each of your employees need, Avaya’s IP office has typical ‘user solutions’ providing powerful features to support individual roles.  These are easily deployed – or you can create your own to meet your company’s exact needs.

worker-5Office worker solution

With IP Office, employees with a PC have all the tools they need to enable them to communicate effectively and work more efficiently.  The office worker solution allows them to control all communications from the screen of their PC, access visual voicemail, as well as use IM and presence capabilities to quickly reach co-workers.

IP Office’s powerful features offer a cost effective and efficient way to streamline your operation.

worker-2Customer service representative

Each of your representatives needs the right tools to do their job to a high standard.  The Customer Service Agent solution gives them just that, offering a browser-based client that allows representatives to receive real time information, including calls on hold, calls lost, and other representatives available.

Just one of the benefits of this is that your employee can adjust the amount of time they spend with each caller to the call volumes they are currently experiencing, helping to deliver a better customer experience and consequently, increased revenue.

worker-6Customer service supervisor

The biggest and best companies are constantly measuring and monitoring their performance and making necessary adjustments – the process of continual improvement.  IP Office’s Customer Service Supervisor Solution gives companies of all sizes the ability to compete at the same level.  From monitoring your representatives’ abilities to handle sales and service calls, through to assessing the value of your latest marketing campaign, you’ll have all the reports you need to deliver the best possible sales and service experience.


Your receptionist is often the first person callers speak to on contacting your business.  As the ‘voice of your company’, it goes without saying that their response needs to be professional, fast and personal.

IP Office’s Receptionist Solution gives receptionists a host of features to make the best possible impression, from streamline call handling with easy point-and- click call controls to caller identification to help route queries quickly and efficiently.  This powerful solution allows your receptionist to cover multiple offices and monitor all office extensions at once.

worker-1Mobile worker solution

IP Office’s mobile worker solution truly increases employee productivity. Turning your employee’s mobile phone into an extension of the business telephone system allows them to provide support to your customers from any location, through your main line number.

All of the call handling features, speed dials and other capabilities are available to them, enabling them to work on the go, wherever they are.

worker-3Power user solution

Wherever your employee is in the World, they can run your office from a laptop, IP phone or mobile phone.  They can set up your business calls to ring on all of their devices, receive automatic notification of voicemails and emails in one place, set up conference calls and a lot more.  This enables your employees to deliver a complete service no matter where they are based.  It also enable you to provide all the functionality of an advanced system to a site that otherwise wouldn’t justify the cost as a standalone.


Homeworkers are good for your business because they save you money in having to provide an office space, and studies suggest they are happier and more productive.  But how can you integrate them with the rest of your workforce?

When it comes to supporting homeworkers, IP Office is really in its element.   Its Teleworker Solution turns any home office into a remote extension of your main office.  Employees are seamlessly integrated, having the same phone and other system functionality that they’d enjoy if they were on site. Read more about how Avaya IP Office supports homeworkers.


One of the best features of the IP Office business phone system is its flexibility. It’s what won the system ‘European Product of the Year 2011′ from Frost & Sullivan who noted that the system “removes the complexity of choosing  the right communications solution for a businesses’ particular needs”.

IP Office simplifies your use of wired, wireless and Internet communications by bringing them together.  You can choose how your employees manage business communications to suit their needs – whether this is on a mobile phone, home phone or laptop.  So, for example, you can turn a mobile phone or home line into an office extension, enabling workers to operate remotely or even join in on large conference calls.

IP Office’s incredible flexibility allows new ways of working, allowing you to provide individual team members with exactly the capabilities they need to support their role.  From your network of sales personnel through to your homeworkers, IP Office adapts to your requirements, bringing together your Company and allowing you to grow sales while lowering your operating expenses.

A hosted IP telephony solution gives you the same features and benefits of a normal IP Telephony solution, but with the exception that most of the infrastructure and consequently, complexity, is held within a core network and secure data centre, thereby removing the need to host PBX equipment locally.

Hosted solutions utilise existing WAN infrastructure where possible, adding new where required, to be able to deliver all telephony requirements. This provides considerable cost savings with the removal of any potential ISDN rentals and maintenance.

Given that relatively little infrastructure is required to be purchased, maintained or constantly upgraded, the cost of entry into IP telephony is minimised both in terms of resources and hardware with existing Cat 5/6 cabling infrastructure being used or extended, as the LAN telephony transportation method given all handsets can be IP enabled.

Benefits of hosted IP telephony solutions

  • Complete telephony solution with all the features of a standard IP telephony system.
  • Lower cost of ownership.
  • Easy administration.
  • Future proof.
  • Simplified charging.
  • Flexible.
  • Reliable.
  • Well supported.
  • Disaster proof.
