Our phone systems for small to mid-sized businesses are tailored to maximize your resources.
Every SME has different telecoms requirements particularly if you are a busy, hands on team striving for excellent customer service.
More and more small businesses are looking for a flexible telecoms solution that allows them to work remotely, adapting easily as the company evolves whilst always giving a professional image to customers through their telephone system, regardless of how small they are.
IP telephony is an ideal solution for SMEs. Unlike a traditional telephone system, it is not reliant users being in a specific location. Remote workers simply take the same IP handset that they use in the office out with them to location and connect to their central network through a standard broadband connection. Telephone calls can be transferred directly from the businesses head office and from one staff member to another just as they would if they were sitting at their desks.
We take SMEs through a step by step process to:
- Maximise your investment and stay within budget, no matter how small
- Manage your transition to new technologies (such as IP telephony or a wireless system) without overloading your IT staff or losing focus on your business
- Take into account and seamlessly integrate your existing IT applications
We understand that a college or school telephone system is very complex and serves many needs. Management, teachers and parents all have different requirements and so we have created a system that works for everybody…with everybody. Here are the main features for each user group of a school or college:
Auto-attendant facility with a ‘pupil absence’ reporting option, so that parents can leave telephone messages about school absences easily.
Direct dialling to key telephone extensions which bypasses a school reception, making access to required staff members easier for the caller and also reducing the workload for school receptions.
Voicemail for all school telephones and school extension users.
A teacher’s mailbox in the school staffroom which indicates telephone messages have been left for specific staff members.
Wireless handsets for staff who are constantly mobile around the school.
Voice over IP (VoIP) functionality which allows staff who are working remotely or from home to make and receive calls on school numbers.
‘Soft telephones’ on classroom PCs as an alternative to having handsets in each classroom.
A dedicated school absence telephone mailbox.
Sophisticated telephone call barring options.
Multiple levels of service for situations such as daytime, outside of normal school hours, school holiday periods & lunchtimes.
ISDN2/30 lines with direct dialling features to avoid bottlenecks at a schools reception.
The ability for the school to transfer a telephone call directly into a specific staff member’s mailbox.
One touch ‘call record on demand’ to voicemail, useful for recording complex telephone messages from parents and calls which are, or may become, abusive.
Capacity which is scalable from 4 to 400 telephone extensions in one system, allowing room for expansion without the need to replace the telecom communications system.
GHM has extensive experience within the Local Government, and understands the importance of intelligent, flexible and effective communications solutions to such organisations.
Customer service, accessibility and efficiency in service delivery, and public accountability for costings are all key issues that any public sector organisation must consider, when determining its best fit communications solutions.
Projects are abound, with the ‘Tell us once’ service, Code of Connection compliance, and Avoidable Contact initiative representing a few of the communication challenges that local government face.
We have fine-tuned IP Telephony, Fixed mobile convergence, unified communications, hosted telephony, voice-data integration solutions to suit local government requirements. We have cut through the hype of these various technological advancements to deliver real benefits which have created efficiencies and cut councils’ operating costs. To discuss how we have assisted local authorities in achieving their communications objectives.
The only technology provider 100% dedicated to care homes
Our specialist WiFi, telephone systems and technologies are being used by care homes across the UK. Those care homes are enjoying better connectivity, better mobility, better efficiency and cheaper monthly costs.
Smartphones are familiar in everyday life, which is why we have developed solutions based around them. No user manuals needed… and care home owners have access to an increasing range of 3rd party software applications designed for care environments.
We take time to understand the needs of your admin and care team, help install the right features and your preferred 3rd party applications. The feature set can be varied depending on job role and level of responsibility.

After working with a number of GP and dental surgeries we soon realised the industry had many needs that weren’t being met when it came to their telephone systems and technology requirements.
As a result, we have worked with some of the leading research institutes in the world to develop a range of services and products that finally meet the needs of surgeries, their staff and most importantly their patients.
We strongly believe that the range of products we have developed will contribute significantly to the level of care that can be provided and the range of services available to patients.
All of the services we have developed have also been in line with the NHS document ‘Improving access, responding to patients- A ‘how-to’ guide for GP practices’. We are passionate about support and have secured several industry awards for our work.
We provide full National cover in the event that your system develops a fault – a technically trained engineer will be able to put your mind at rest and start fixing the problem straight away.
Our dedicated solutions for surgeries include:
- Traditional and hosted telephone systems
- Patient connect
- Automated appointment reminders
- Touch screen sign in
- Call queuing
- Information screens for patients…plus much, much more.
