Panasonic KX-TA624 Home or Small Business Phone System
Choosing a telephone system is one of the most important business decisions you'll ever make. Because the telephone is a central part of your day-to-day business activity, you need a phone system that will help you manage your calls, highly flexible, allow you to connect many types of phone equipment, and grow as your business grows, without the need for costly upgrades.
The best selling home and small business phone system, the Panasonic KX-TA624, has now been dramatically improved with modular expansion capability and a host of new features. Now you can buy this system and expand its capabilities as your family, business or budget grows. Some of the new enhancements include optional auto attendant capabilities (press 1 for Sales, press 2 for Customer service, press 3 to speak to John...), optional name and number Caller ID and up to 4 door intercom stations with remote lock control. All of the available expansion cards fit neatly in the case of the handsome base unit for a clean professional look.
This Panasonic KX-TA624 works with standard off-the-shelf touch-tone phones, or for enhanced capabilities use Panasonic Proprietary telephones. Touch-tone single line phones access call transfer, conference calling, hold, intercom and other features when you enter codes via the keypad. Proprietary Panasonic phones access system functions through one touch keys, plus allow you to use the system's advanced functions, such as hands-free intercom, silent room monitoring, unique ring, and internal paging. Proprietary LCD phones can show you the number being dialed, the extension a call is being transferred from, duration of calls, and time/date. The Panasonic KX-TA624 also works with answering machines, cordless phones, fax machines and computer modems without the need for additional cards or modules. System speed dial allows all extensions to access a database of 100 programmed numbers and personal speed dial allows each extension to have its own 10 speed dial numbers. The base configuration comes with 3 CO (central office) lines and 8 extensions. Adding the 3 by 8 expansion card changes your phone system from 3 x 8 to 6 x 16. Add the 8-extension expansion to the base system for a 3 x 16 system. Add both the 3 x 8-expansion card and an 8-extension expansion for a full blown 6 by 24 phone system!
Note: At least one Panasonic LCD proprietary phone must be purchased for system programming.
Dual Port Usage
The KX-TA624 System is ready for expansion right from the start. You can easily connect a Panasonic proprietary telephone and a single-line device simultaneously to any single extension port. This feature increases the cost effectiveness of your system and helps eliminate extra wiring costs.
Flexible CO Line Buttons
The central office (CO) line buttons on each telephone in the system can be programmed to suit the specific needs of each employee. You can alternately program CO line buttons for Direct Station Selection (DSS)/Busy Lamp Field (BLF), automatic dialing or one-touch access to the feature used most often.
Auto Attendant & Fax Detection
With the addition of an Auto Attendant and Fax Detection Card, the phone system will provide a simplified "auto-attendant" feature with two custom 30-second outgoing messages. After dialing into the system callers can obtain single-digit access to specific extensions or ring groups at any time during or after the outgoing message. Callers with an authorized security code can access the system's outside lines or place intercom calls. Additionally, fax calls can be automatically transferred to a designated fax extension, eliminating the need for a dedicated fax line.
At the touch of a button the phone automatically redials the last number called. This feature can be extremely helpful when you're trying to get through to a busy party.
External connections include jacks for connecting to an optional external music source for music-on-hold and audio out to optional external paging systems. Note: If proprietary speakerphones are purchased, paging announcements can be made through the speakers built into these phones without the need for external paging systems. Great for "Dinner's ready!" announcements.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR)
By connecting a serial printer to the system, or by attaching a call accounting system, you can obtain a record of calls. Know who called where, when, and for how long. Account codes may be assigned to keep track of costs to be billed to clients, employees, projects or departments.
Caller ID Compatibility
Displays the incoming caller's phone number or name when used with a Panasonic KX-T7000 series display phone. Display of name may not be available with some Caller ID services. The system can log up to 20 unanswered calls per extension. With the help of Caller ID and the Call Log feature you can identify those callers when you come back to your desk, allowing you to easily return the calls.
With the addition of the optional Door Phone/Opener Adapter Card, the system can interface with up to 4 door intercoms and 4 door contact closures for remote operation of electric door locks. It's a great way to add security to your home or small business suite and reduces the time spent running to answer the door.
Time (Day/Night/Lunch) Service
The system can automatically switch between day, night and lunch modes at a programmed time every day. The modes can also be changed manually by the operator or manager at any desired time.
