Business Phone Plans
Pay As You Go
Perfect for business that need a phone, make minimal calls and want to look professional.
We can configure your business phone system to greet customers with custom messaging, direct the caller to the right department, team or person. We can also automate messaging for out of hours calls and direct voice messages to the right people.
You can create an unlimited number of extensions for use on physical handsets, softphones on PCs or mobile apps. Extensions facilitate communication flexibility and mobility for users and do no need to be linked to an external number.
Because VoIP calls are internet-based, hosted PBX systems are easier to integrate with the business applications you use every day. You can do things like place outbound calls through Outlook or other email clients, or bring up a customer record with that customer’s inbound calls.
Ring groups are a good way to manage bulk calling e.g. calls for specific departments. A call queue allows the caller to be put in a queue while listening to audio (i.e. on hold) before an extension is available to pick up the call; it also allows for extensions to log in and out of the queue.
No matter how big or small your company is, the right unified communications solution can take your business communications to the next level, help to improve collaboration, boost productivity, increase mobility and enhance the customer experience.

A VoIP line is a digital line that converts your voice into a digital signal that travels over the Internet. If you are calling a regular phone number, the signal is converted to a regular telephone signal before it reaches the destination.
A softphone is a piece of software (an app) that allows you to make telephone calls over the internet to anyone with a phone number, but instead of using a traditional phone you use your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Unlike a traditional phone, a softphone can be used anywhere with internet access.
This enables you or your staff to work from home, whilst travelling and you can even rearrange your office to suit because you are no longer restricted by hard phone lines plugs and cables.
PBX stands for Private Branch Exchange, which in simple terms is a business telephone system that offers multiple inbound and outbound lines, call routing, voicemail, and call management features.
There are two types of PBX systems:
All Tempus business phone plans utilise a cloud based PBX, which offers significant benefits for SME’s such as:
Eliminating the need for on-premise hardware, user maintenance, hardware upgrades and associated costs.
Simplified security management – primarily achieved by not having the hardware sitting in your office, which is now running on secure servers.
