The Telstra Solution

“We approached Telstra to provide us with a solution, and they made it really simple for us. Our local Telstra Business Centre was able to identify our key business drivers and customise a call handling solution to help drive efficiency across the business. Now we are able to take advantage of free internal calls between our networked locations and also receive included Local and National calls and free calls to our company fleet of mobiles as part of our package.”

The Ericsson-LG iPECS Telstra Business System is feature packed and is future ready for new technologies such as the National Broadband Network (NBN). It incorporates a number of business enhancing features, including built-in call centre capabilities, voicemail and a range of mobility features, essential in today’s competitive environment. 

Southern Cross Truck Rentals Use a Number of these Features Including:
  1. Phontage: Phontage SoftPhone, a complete end-user soft client providing a multimedia communication experience including video conferencing, peer to peer instant messaging and application and file sharing. 
  2. Mobile Extension: Linking their desktop phones to their mobiles to give workers a single contact number by allowing them to answer their extension number from either their desk or mobile phone.
  3. Teleworker: The Ericsson-LG Teleworker solution offers an integrated solution for remote offices, home based employees, and employees on the road to securely access the communication capabilities of head office.
Technology can be confronting, Telstra made it easy and the Ericsson-LG Telstra Business System has provided many benefits to our business.
