Using digital technology, Samsung can unite communications within any company across WANs, LANs and the Internet. Users can have shared features and functions with a common look and feel across all terminals.

Simple and Stylish

The 5000 series display handsets feature a 2-line scrollable LCD screen that displays call information like Calling Line Identification so that the user will know who is calling. The screen can also fit up to 32 characters. Direct Dialing Inward or DDI is also possible. This feature indicates why a person is calling. The LCD helps users navigate smoothly through the system’s features.

Display handsets have soft keys that are programmable and 3-colour LED status indicators. This can be used for speed dialing, traditional Key & Lamp working or as 1-touch feature access keys.

You can assign optional add-on modules to compatible handsets to create 64 additional soft keys. You can also get a standard Digital and analogue handset from the brand as a cost-effective alternative for staff that do not require high access to features. You can ensure that everyone has their own point of contact and unique extensions.


You can also get a headset for your busy receptionist so that they can have a hands-free operation. If you are looking for a phone system for your receptionist, ask your receptionist what they needs and wants in a phone system. It is also a good idea to know the level of her technical skills. You don’t want to give a technically confusing phone to someone who only has a basic understanding of the gadgets and equipment of this modern world. It might be a good idea to let them try the phone first to see if it is a good fit. Find a phone system that has all ‘needs’ first then ask the supplier if you can add her ‘wants’ eventually and how much they would cost. You can also negotiate for a discounted rate.

Find a supplier that has technicians and trainers that have a wealth of experience when it comes to installing reception phones. You want your receptionist to be happy because they are the first point of contact of all your customers, suppliers and partners. Look for a supplier that can supply your requirements and work within your budget. Ask for after sales support, maintenance and repairs. Talking about this before you purchase a system will give you peace of mind for the future when your system breaks down and needs repairs.
