NEC SL1100 Phone System

The business telephone system is so critical to a businesses operations regardless of your industry. Most business rely on having to communicate with their customers, clients or patients in order to fulfill their service. I have found that the NEC SL1100 Phone System is a great fit for most if not all small businesses with less than 30 employees. Of course there are many other great systems to select from, but as it relates to a quality manufacturer, ease of use platform, feature rich abilities and an overall reliable system the SL1100 has all of this.

Having the ability to support a variety of different types of incoming lines, such as:

  • Analog Lines

  • T1 PRI

  • SIP Trunks

Also having the ability to support a variety of different endpoints, such as:

  • Analog devices

  • Digital Telephones

  • Doorbox

  • Softphone (Desktop Application)

  • VoIP Telephones

This Lens is dedicated educating you on its capabilities and value as a effective business tool.

Introduction to the NEC SL1100 Phone System

In business today it is critical to have a Phone System that meets not only your needs today but those over the next 5-10 years. I have been installing a variety of different business telephone systems over the last 30 years and have came across one of the best systems that meets the needs of most small businesses.

This is the NEC SL1100 Phone System. It has the best of both worlds, the reliability and stability of your traditional digital telephone systems but also the advance capabilities of VoIP.

The NEC SL1100 has the capacity of 84 of phones and 84 lines at its combined maximum limits. But again this is because of its advanced design where you can incorporate both digital and VoIP telephones. We find a much more comfortable level to operate is between the 24 lines and 48 telephone range.

With telecommuting and multiple locations becoming more of the norm, the NEC SL1100 Phone System allows you to have individual remote VoIP telephones and also the ability for networking multiple locations together. This allows for transferring of calls, intercoming employees in a different city, state, country.

NEC SL1100 Voice Mail - InMail

The NEC SL1100 Voice Mail known as InMail is more than just your average voice mail. It is loaded with some very powerful and useful business features. Allowing the NEC SL1100 system to not only keep you informed and notified of important information as it is received and delivered but also for your clients.

One of the most popular feaures is the Call Record feature, you can keep track of important discussions. Recordings can be emailed to your co-workers and stored for quick reference at a later time.

With three personalized greetings, you can select the one most appropriate depending on your availability or the time of day. For example, announce if you are out of the office, on vacation, or even record a message suggesting an alternative contact or number for the caller to reach.

With Message Notification to your desktop phone, home office or mobile phone, you can monitor your mailbox effortlessly from wherever you are. You can even choose to receive email notifications with the message included as an audio attachment like that of a WAV file.

Messages can be accessed from system phones, smartphones and even email inboxes.

The NEC SL1100 voice mail system can be expanded to provide up to 16 ports and 40 hours' recording time. Which is more than any normal small business could ever need.
