Features to look for in a Houston phone system

If you’re looking for a business phone system in Houston, Texas, then beyond the usual business communications features like call forwarding and routing, you also need to make sure it’s a reliable communication solution.

Truly unified communications

With a business telephone system, you can only make phone calls. But what if you want to text a client? Or need video conferencing? With Dialpad's unified communications solution, you can get all three, in one place. (It works on IP phones too.) No need to toggle between apps or windows, no need to pay for multiple disparate tools.

Single Item Card Porting Success

Keep your phone numbers

There’s also no need to start over with a brand new phone number when you switch to VoIP services. Dialpad will help you port your existing telephone number from your current service provider, including toll-free numbers, for free in the US.

Single Item Card Add a Phone Number

Get set-up in minutes

With Dialpad, you can add phone lines, create ring groups, and set your business hours right from your online dashboard—in minutes—without bugging your IT team. It's one of the biggest perks of having a cloud solution, and you can't do that with a PBX phone system (which takes days or weeks to do something similar).

A fully integrated contact center if you need it

Dialpad’s contact center platform is integrated right into the phone system app, letting your agents and supervisors run a call center right from their laptops or cell phones. If your Houston-based business is getting a ton of calls or messages on a daily basis, this is something to look into.

Single Item Card Call Forwarding

Simple call forwarding

With a cloud business telephone system, you can easily forward calls to colleagues or your mobile devices when you’re away from your office phone system with zero business disruption. With call forwarding functionality, you'll never have to miss a call again. Dialpad lets you set up a maximum of five call forwarding phone numbers (including landline and mobile numbers)—and forward voicemails too.

Single Item Card security settings

Enterprise-grade security

All communications are sensitive, and business communications are no exception. That’s why Dialpad comes with robust security and can help organizations stay GDPR and HIPAA-compliant, along with in-meeting controls like the ability to mute or remove participants, block screen sharing, and more.

Visual Voicemail Single Item Card

Visual voicemail

Dialpad's visual voicemail features can transcribe voicemails, which means you can read them instead of listening to each one. Voicemail transcriptions are great if you're in back-to-back meetings all day and have to miss incoming calls from time to time. (This is one big perk when it comes to VoIP technology over old-school landline phones.)

Dialpad’s caller ID feature lets you make phone calls from your personal cell phone—while shielding your personal phone number. Because really, who wants to carry around two phones?
