Digital telephone systems have been around for over 30 years. Using solid state technology it is extremely reliable.

CONVERGED WITH VoIP

The ESI digital system can support VoIP alongside the digital. This provides a company with maximum flexibility as they need it.

NOT AFFECTED BY IT ISSUES

Many VoIP systems ride the same network infrastructure as your computers and internet, and in some cases when there are network issues, the VoIP phones experience issues. Your network does not affect digital systems, so communications are never compromised.

COST EFFECTIVE

Digital solutions are typically lower in start-up costs and do not require ongoing annual software support contracts that most VoIP systems require. Just install it and it works for years with no upgrades required.
