Need paging for medical office ( wide area )

Need paging for medical office ( wide area )

Need paging for medical office ( wide area )

Our office is old fashioned and we just want the feature where a doctor can be paged by a caller by pressing a key.

All we have in our office is a small white box called an ADtran 604 and typical phone service with One Communications,( formerly conversent ). The phone number is unmanned, and never answered. At one time the phone number was re-routed to never even reach this office, but that feature is not hard and fast. One Comm forwards all calls to intelliverse who provide us with 4 mailboxes of VM. Each mailbox greeting will prompt the user to press a key in case of an emergency, and there are 4 seperate beepers for 4 different users who are not on-site.

Intelliverse charges us $100+ per month but their outages have become intolerable to the doctors, hence my need to explore alternatives.

If this sounds familiar to anyone, I would appreciate any help in rounding up a good low cost system. The system i was presented by a dealer cost $3K and was way more than we need.

I can program, configure, and fix electronics but i'm not a phone guy so i'm on a learning curve, but willing to try options.

Thanks for any suggestions.
