Should Our Church Use a Virtual Phone System?


Traditional on site phone systems definitely have their place within large organizations. If your church has hundreds or even thousands of staff members, an old-school phone system may actually be a better fit.

Organizations of this size generally require a physical handset at each desk and the ability to stack and answer thousands of incoming phone calls. Traditional systems are great for churches that basically need a built in call center solution.

However, if your church has less than a hundred staff members and you aren’t making or receiving thousands of calls per day, a traditional on site system is most likely going to be an unnecessary added expense.

This is why so many churches are switching to a Virtual Phone System and Talkroute is quickly becoming the phone system provider of choice for so many organizations.

Church Phone System FAQ


A virtual phone system is a phone system that is not physically located on-site but is instead managed in the cloud. Since your virtual phone system is located off-site, there is no expensive equipment to purchase or maintain.

With a virtual phone system, your ministry will have the flexibility to register local and toll free phone numbers as needed, route calls to your existing phones, send and receive text messages, and manage voicemail messages online, by email, or from your phones.

You will find that a virtual phone solution is far more cost effective and feature rich compared to a traditional on-site PBX system. Most Talkroute customers save hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars per year by switching to our virtual phone service. Best of all, Talkroute’s enterprise level features ensure that we will scale with you as your ministry continues to grow.

Freedom

Traditionally, you would be required to be in the same building as your team and seated at your desk in order to take calls. If you wanted to check voicemail, you would need to dial-in from your extension and in order to send text messages, you would need to do so from a personal number.

Talkroute’s virtual phone system allows you are your team to be anywhere, on any device and still be able to communicate with your customers. Our mobile app provides you with the ability to make calls and send text messages from your church number. You can also check voicemail from your phone, email, or the online dashboard. If you receive a call on your cell phone and need to transfer it to another team member, department or voicemail box, you can do so with our live call transfer feature. Now everyone on your team can work where and how they want.

Ease of Use

Making adjustments to the settings and/or functionality of your office phone system, in the past, could be a huge hassle. If you wanted to add a phone as a forwarding number, change the number of rings, add music for callers on hold, or pretty much any other adjustment like this, then you might have to call your tech person or possibly contact your service provider to make the changes.

When you have a virtual phone system, on the other hand, you can quickly and easily make any of these adjustments directly from an online control panel. With Talkroute, you can add unlimited forwarding phone numbers, add audio messages or on-hold music for your call menu, manage voicemail, and everything else, right from your online dashboard.

Price

One of the most obvious advantages of using a virtual phone service is that it is far more cost-effective. High up front costs and dedicated IT resources are just a few of the major expenses you will face in order to get up and running with a traditional phone system.

With Talkroute there is no need to purchase any new equipment or hire someone to install software. Our solution works with the devices and phones that you already have.

Talkroute’s pricing starts at just $19 /mo (no additional taxes or fees) and includes a ton of great features, a local or toll free phone number, and forwarding for as many phones as needed. Click the link to see a full breakdown of our plans & pricing.
