ESI Link

Ever wish it could be simpler — not to mention cheaper — for the people at your various locations to talk to each other? Ever wished also that this could occur without your people losing the special features that your phone system has?

Wish no more. ESI’s exciting Esi-Link (“easy-link”) technology helps you unite your team members, whether they’re a street, a city or a country apart.

Esi-Link uses your WAN or the Internet to join together up to 100 compatible ESI phone systems into one interconnected, IP-based system. While ESI wasn’t the first company to offer a multi-site solution, it was the first to offer one that unites the many advantages of multi-site communications (see full details) with the unique, high-performance features of ESI business communications systems.

As the name implies, Esi-Link is amazingly easy to use. For just one example: let’s say you want to call an extension at another one of your locations. Up to now, you’d have had to make a regular phone call (and run up the charges associated with that). But, with an Esi-Link-enabled ESI phone system, simply dial the extension2 just as you would if it were right down the hall, instead of miles away — perhaps even thousands of miles away. And this all happens over your data network; so, if you have additional lines (especially expensive dedicated phone lines), it’s even easier on your bottom line than it is to use.

ESI Link for Remote IP applications

Teleworking, remote working, and telecommuting are all terms for a growing trend that is becoming more mainstream as technology catches up with demand. Business owners are realizing that an investment in their employees’ flexibility ultimately affects the bottom line.

Teleworking can save employers thousands of dollars per year in absenteeism. If an employee typically commutes 60 minutes per day, an ESI remote IP phone or hosted pbx could save him/her up to two weeks of time lost per year sitting in traffic. Also, studies find that remote employees are typically happier, healthier, and more productive than their office-bound peers.

Another category of importance is the so-called “road warrior” — an employee who usually spends many hours a week traveling but still needs to be “plugged into” the office communications system. For this person, VIP Softphone provides that essential tie from anywhere his/her laptop can connect to the Internet via broadband.

Using ESI remote IP phones present many concrete benefits. While toll bypass was once touted as a leading factor in adopting IP communications, in the end it’s not as important to some businesses as is enhanced employee productivity. Still, using ESI remote IP phones does allow businesses to avoid costly long-distance charges, by transporting voice traffic over less expensive data networks and by completely eliminating long-distance calling charges between remote locations and the office.
