What is inhouseIT’s experience with business network architecture?

The core of that support is centered on working with complex networks, regulating bandwidth, and integrating network applications. inhouseIT’s extensive knowledge and experience is crucial to its success integrating VoIP systems with existing networks. If you’re getting a phone system that works through the network, you better get people that understand how your network works, and how adding a phone system can affect it.

What is inhouseIT’s approach when starting a new VoIP project?
When starting with a new customer we first sit down and learn how their business works. What is important to a customer and what are their technology needs? Which phone features are needed? Next we perform a thorough Network Assessment to determine the current network’s specifications and limitations. Then we can make qualified recommendations on what ShoreTel configuration will fit best with the company.

Does inhouseIT offer training for our new VoIP system?
inhouseIT offers initial training for Administrators and End-Users as part of the installation project. We also offer Free ongoing training at our monthly morning trainings held at inhouseIT.
