RM Voice is a UK-hosted cloud telephony system designed for schools. It provides fast, reliable and efficient communications across a dedicated network, tailored to the needs of your school or trust.
RM Voice includes a suite of education-focused features, including options to handle events such as broadcasting whole-school emergency messages, scenarios involving children with care plans and updating parents/carers with temporary messages.
Cloud-hosted telephony avoids the need for any additional on-premise hardware – it just needs a VoIP handset or alternative device in each location you wish to be able to make and receive calls. It can be accessed by almost all Internet-enabled devices, used across multiple school sites and managed through an easy-to-use dashboard.
BT Openreach announced that the traditional telephone system in the UK will be switched off at the end of 2025.
Indeed, since the start of September 2023, buying or adding to existing analogue services is no longer possible. This means that all schools will need to replace their existing analogue public switch telephone network (PSTN) telephony systems with a digital one that routes calls over the internet.
If your school still uses a traditional telephone system now is the time to start planning which alternative services you will migrate to.
As the core system is cloud hosted, you have complete control over how you wish to manage your devices. Each licence allows you to be logged into five devices simultaneously: up to two physical handsets and multiple softphone options.
Leading handset manufacturers
Buy outright or lease handsets alongside your licences. A range of handsets is available to meet the needs of different users within your school or trust.
The Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) cross-platform interface synchronises features across the desktop, laptop and mobile apps so that almost any device with a modern web browser can become an extension of your telephone system.
If a staff member in the playground needs to be contacted or raise an issue, RM Voice is available right from their mobile phones.
