Attendant Console Market Introduction

An attendant console is a phone station used for communication purposes in a residential or commercial arena, mostly part of a PBX i.e. private branch exchange or a private telephone system. It is similar to a normal private branch exchange telephone station with additional modules that can be linked with particular telephone lines in the private telephone system. The attendant console has many call management features such as directory sync, contact management, call control, language localization, and more. There are many added benefits apart from the measureable benefits of an attendant console that are tough to quantify such as freeing up staff time who would otherwise be handling the phone calls, and enhanced employee output. Also, by paying periodic subscription charges, businesses could transform their capital expenditure i.e. CAPEX into OPEX i.e. operational expenditure.

Attendant Console Market Dynamics

Integration with Cloud Driving Demand for Attendant Consoles

A cloud-based attendant console system has a cost advantage as the main cost factor for a cloud-based system is its service charge, while eradicating the cost of upgrading hardware and software, phone lines, and reallocating staff to other tasks of the business. An attendant console reduces the cost burden. Administration and operations account for main cost savings in a cloud-based attendant console over an on-premise attendant console. It also helps reduce the network complexity and allows cloud service providers to host several virtual networks and decreases the application and activation time.

Hence, small and medium sized businesses are increasingly deploying attendant consoles, creating ample opportunities for service providers to capture more market share.

Incompatible Hardware and Equipment to Hamper the Growth of the Attendant Console Market

One of the main reasons for interruption in the attendant console market is old equipment or incompatible hardware. Many old routers cannot support attendant console systems and data transfer. Other network hardware could also run into compatibility glitches with attendant console protocols. Any outdated network that still uses old and improper hardware could make the change a major and continuing issue. Not only could the routers be incompatible, they could even be incorrectly programmed.

Other issues faced by the attendant console market are lack of standards and design complexity.
