Small Business Solution?


#1

I am a super small business that will have a couple of people working from their home. I want to be able to have call come into our office and then based on what extension they select go to appropriate person regardless of where they are at. Of course, I would like voicemail, long distance and all that as well.

Is Aterisk something that can do this and, if so, 1] what is a typical cost in regard to phones, hardware etc to set this up? 2] would this be a bad application for the technology? 3] any suggestions on how i do this affordably with least amount of stress?

Thanks!
Michael
