Best 4 Line Phone
Ultimate Small Business Telephone System
There are several types of 4 line phone that are popular with small business operators. They include corded, cordless and IP phones. Corded options are usually the cheapest option if wiring and phone jacks are already in place. IP phones involve the biggest up front cost and 4 line cordless phones are in the middle.
The big advatage of cordless 4 line phone systems is that they can be installed in minutes. They are excellent small business telephone systems because users are free to move around while on the phone. Add a cordless phone headset and they have a hands free phone system.
Cordless Phone Systems
The latest 4 line cordless phones can be configured with range extenders to provide enormous coverage and eliminate dead spots associated with walls and multi-level buildings.
The AT&T SB67118
is a state of the art 4 line phone with a full compliment of features:
- 4 line digital answering
- Music on hold
- Call recording
- Push-to-talk (PTT)
- Range extenders (optional)
- Expandable up to 10 handsets
Because it's a DECT 6.0 phone the ATT SB67108 is immune to interference from WiFi and most other electronic devices.
The Panasonic KX-TG4500B
is another excellent cordless 4 line cordless phone. While offering almost the same set of features as the ATT phone it employs older 5.8 GHz technology and doesn't support range extenders. If cordless phone range is a potential issue in your environment, we would recommend that you go with the ATT cordless phone.
When compared with small business VoIP phone systems a cordless 4 line phone is exceptionally good value for money. Not only are they significantly less expensive, but also easier to manage. There is no software to update and no necessity for a maintenance or support agreement. We would however recommend buying one or two additional handsets. In a hectic small business environment they often encounter a fair amount of rough and tumble without the benefit of a safety net.
Selecting the right 4 line phone is a critical decision for a small business operator. It not only has to work reliably, but also support an adequate range of features without breaking the bank. It's for these reasons that 4 line cordless phones continue to enjoy popularity.
