telephony enhancements, Evolution PBX packs features commonly available in high end
systems in a simplified easy to use package. The days of calling your telecommunications
supplier to enable another extension on your PBX are gone. With Evolution PBX you
simply plug your phone into a standard network jack and let the system do the rest. All
the configuration is done through an easy to use web interface.
Cloud Vs. Premise is a question that all businesses should closely consider. What is right for you depends on two key factors.
How stable is your internet connection?
Cloud requires a quality internet service with QOS enabled within your network to use it reliably. A cable modem is generally sufficient for a smaller company. If you’re not comfortable with putting your phone calls on your existingÂ internet connection we would be happy toÂ give you quotes for other optionsÂ availableÂ options in your area. If you would rather stick to traditional analog or T1/PRI technology our premise based systems are best suited for you.
Would you prefer low upfront costs and monthly payments or to buy everything upfront?
Cloud gives you affordable monthly payments and gets you up and running quickly. You can even switch to a premise solution in the future if you should ever wish to change. However if you consider total cost of ownership through the life of your system premise will win every time.
Evolution UC (Unified Communications) is our flagship product that has been available since 2005.
Intuitive Cloud is our hosted version of Evolution UC. You get the same features both in the cloud or on your premise.

Extensions are very easy to setup. The system auto configures many of the most popular VoIP phones. You have a lot of flexibility with how you establish the extensions for the company. We have a concept we call “My Devices”, you can setup multiple devices under the “Master” extensionÂ giving the user access to choose which of their devices simultaneously ring and develop a rollover pattern. This gives your users extreme flexibility to choose when and where they can be contacted.
There are several options for call routing within the system. The Auto Attendant, Extension Groups, Skills-based Routing, Customer Routing Rules and Time-of-Day- Routing tables are all ways to set answering rules and control call flow.

Intuitive has built a full-featured conference server into our Evolution PBX. There is no additional costs and the only limitations on number of attendees is the number of trunks into the system. Our conference rooms are video capable and follow the active speaker during the calls.
**Video Conferencing Requires 5.0 Edition*
We have built a comprehensive paging solution right into the system. You can use the available speaker on the phones that are not in use to broadcast a message to all phones, groups of phones, or individual phones.We also integrate with overhead paging systems and horns.
There are no additional costs required for paging on the system. It’s included.
Paging is offered and supported in all Evolution PBX Editions.
The paging feature relies on the speaker on the phone and the devices ability to go “off hook” automatically, Polycom, Linksys and Grandstream phones all work well. Older Cisco phones (794X and 796X) require a specific extension to be dedicated for paging.
Paging to and from any phone(s) on the system is a built-in capability. In addition, we can integrate any existing overhead paging systems with the Evolution PBX or there are multiple options for SIP-based horns and loud speakers that can be extensions off the system. For older paging systems, Â an analog adapter may be necessary.
We offer all the equipment you need for your phone system, we are platinum partners with most of the VoIP equipment manufacturers and interoperability testÂ their firmware with our system. We recommend the Polycom VVX series of phones for their quality, features and price however we also have many other options. See ourÂ recommended hardware and pricing.

An Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) allows you to connect a standard analog telephone to your PBX to place VoIP calls. An ATA can also be used to connect older paging systems and devices to your PBX.
Yes! While we hope one day all fax machines will be put out to pasture, we understand some businesses still require faxing. For the most reliable faxing, especially multiple pages, you will need to use anÂ analog line or PRI that you can connect to your PBX on premise.Â We offer VoIP fax to email services as well.
Most phones have some presence capabilities. Presence is accomplished using a BLF (Busy Lamp Field) to show you other users on the system. Please review the individual phone model documentation to see how many phones can be managed and programmed. The iView operator console also monitors presence of all the phones on the system.
