You've probably been told there are business-critical features you must have in a phone system. These features include: call switching, voice messaging, conferencing, call queuing, menus and automated attendants, least cost routing, calendar integration, PSTN, and VoIP interfaces. Typically, these must-have features become expensive add-ons when purchasing a proprietary phone system. With Asterisk, you get all of these features, and many more, included in the base distribution with no additional per-user or per-call license fees required.

Freedom of Choice

You have the freedom to choose the deployment approach that best fits your business. If you have an in-house technical team or an IT consultant, you may be best served with a do-it-yourself (DYI) approach. On the other hand, if your company has limited technical expertise or simply doesn’t have the time to take on the project internally, you may appreciate some additional assistance. In that case, Digium has a global network of Asterisk experts who can help you succeed with your Asterisk project.
