Broadvoice phone system for education
Don’t let your old-school PBX hold you back.
Graduate to future-proof cloud communications with Broadvoice.
Give your budgets, overburdened IT teams, and aging phone systems a break with Broadvoice.
K–12 schools, community colleges, or universities — all educational institutions face a common challenge with ever-tightening budgets that force smaller staff to do more with less, including getting by with aging communication technologies. Broadvoice can help on both counts. Our Broadvoice b-hive all-in-one cloud-based communications platform gives schools access to a continuously updated, future-proof solution as an affordable subscription service. No IT expertise required.
Pick from budget-friendly plans.
Whether you’re a local school district or a college campus, Broadvoice b-hive can work for you. No big capital outlays are required to get started. Monthly pricing is right sized by the number of users or connections for affordability and predictability. Only pay for the features and IP phones you need and save by excluding the ones you don’t.
Get automatic upgrades.
Aging phone systems just don’t make the grade in today’s high-tech world. Our proprietary cloud-based solution gets extra credit on that count — it’s always current. That’s because it’s hosted in our data centers and managed by our network solutions experts. Our in-house developers add new features and functionality automatically, so there’s no new software or hardware to buy. You can even add users easily and incrementally over time.
Offload IT overhead.
Slim education budgets mean IT teams are stretched thin. Free them from the burden of managing and maintaining an outdated on-site phone system. Broadvoice b-hive infrastructure is managed by pros, and our intuitive admin and user portal enables employees to handle day-to-day moves, adds, and changes with no IT expertise required.
Never miss a call, chat, text, or fax.
From the admissions office to the bursar’s office and the classroom to the boardroom, communication is critical to delivering a best-in-class education experience. Broadvoice b-hive unifies all communications — calls, chat, text, fax, voicemail, video conferencing, collaboration, and more — on one platform and one user interface. Everything is in one place. No app switching and no more missed messages.
Work in class, on campus, and beyond.
Campus communications serve a range of users from educators and administrators to facilities managers and more. Our all-in-one cloud-based Communicator app lets them work anywhere — in the classroom, learning lab, front office, on campus, or even at home with distance learning. Communicator lets them call, chat, video, fax, and more — all from their existing internet-enabled smartphone, laptop, or PC.
ADVANCED CALL ROUTING
Improve the student experience.
Our built-in auto attendant ensures time-sensitive calls are answered every time. Our virtual receptionist directs callers — students, parents, donors, and suppliers — to the right extension, reducing hold times and connecting them with the help they need. You can even add optional virtual call center features for your admissions and accounting teams. Give your customer experience a boost.
Rely on always-on communications.
Our cloud-based system is location independent and can work anywhere, which many schools put to the test during the pandemic lockdowns. In addition, it’s housed in geo-redundant data centers, so it will be up and running even when there’s a power outage, storm, fire, or other disaster. We deliver a service that you and your students can count on.
