Why Education Needs Better Phone Systems

One easy app for schools of all sizes to talk, message, and meet from anywhere.

Phones are constantly ringing in the administrative offices of all academic institutions, from preschools to universities. But the importance of phones in education extends far beyond answering parent inquiries.

Today, academic administrators are innovatively leveraging cloud-based communication platforms like UnitedCloud as remote and distance learning gain popularity. These virtual or cloud phone systems, powered by innovative cloud voice and services platforms, seamlessly connect users across various devices—be it a desk phone, laptop, mobile phone, or tablet.

A cloud-based phone system enhances the educational experience for students, teachers, and administrators alike by enhancing efficiency in administrative offices and providing a robust platform for global education.

Benefits of a Better Phone System for Education

Facilitating Virtual Learning Classes

Academic administrators seek effective video conferencing solutions as more students engage in online learning. UnitedCloud offers a comprehensive cloud communication system that simplifies virtual learning with state-of-the-art video technology and HD audio. This enables seamless scheduling and conducting of virtual classes without technical barriers like pin codes or passcodes.

Enhancing Call Routing

While virtual learning takes precedence, efficient office operations remain critical as calls from parents and students continue throughout the day. With a Cloud PBX phone system, calls can be managed more efficiently by customizing call forwarding for different departments. UnitedCloud's system automatically records, transcribes, and logs each call, facilitating easy review and enhancing staff collaboration, whether they're in the classroom, office, or working remotely.

Creating a Modern Campus

A cloud-based communication system fosters a virtual campus environment by connecting staff, faculty, and students regardless of their location. This connectivity proves invaluable for sharing important information such as emergency preparedness plans and system-wide notifications securely and compliantly under FERPA/HIPAA guidelines.

Supporting BYOD Opportunities

Recognizing the widespread use of digital devices among students, schools can promote Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies with UnitedCloud's secure platform. This integration not only enhances the learning experience but also enables direct communication between educators and parents across different devices.
