Hosted PBX

A PBX or PABX (private branch exchange) is the technical term used to describe an office phone system, providing staff with phone extensions and features like call transfer. The service lazypbx.com can operate as a hosted PBX (also known as a virtual PBX or cloud PBX).

It's call hosted because the phone system is delivered to you as a hosted service. That means no local PBX hardware is required, the PBX is remotely located in our facility and you just require a web browser to manage your hosted PBX. No special phones are required, any regular landline or mobile phone can be used.

What is a Hosted PBX ?

A typical PBX setup would include a number of staff with their own extensions and personal voicemail. The main contact telephone being number routed through to an operator or auto-attendant. Each extension would have the facility to transfer calls to one another or place calls on hold.

To provide a solution like this your for your business the options are to install a hardware PBX or use a hosted PBX, like The service lazypbx.com.
