Specific solution for education
Schools and other educational institutions are different from ordinary businesses. Their communication requirements are much about protecting students and staff, and their public areas are much more vulnerable to abuse. A prank emergency call can not only cause significant costs to the institution, many of those call can numb the early responders when there are real emergency cases. Having reliable and fast communication paths in the case of real emergency can make a significant difference. And providing teachers the way to communicate efficiently with the parents without giving up their privacy improves information flow in the day to day work.
Vodia's PBX solution provides educational institutions with the technology to help teachers and students at schools and universities communicate effectively in today's multicultural and global environment. Vodia's feature rich PBX platform helps education institutions improve their communication, increase security, boost productivity, and reduce costs by consolidating their communications services into a single platform. With features such as paging, voicemail-to-email, find-me/follow-me, conferencing and intercom, education institutions can now embrace the 21st-century learning environment.
Prank calls are a central problem in schools and other institutions where students spend unsupervised time in classrooms. They cause significant costs for emergency response units and they reduce attention to real emergency situations.
With the Vodia PBX, you can selectively record calls to emergency numbers, so that students can be identified by their voice. You can also include front desk personell in the call, which can serve screening functions. Involving school staff in emergency calls also improves services when response uinits arrive at the site, avoid time consuming navigating through the building and first aid.
