I have been searching for a Skype based PBX system in New Zealand, does this exist? I need to to work for a business with different people in different locations. Any ideas, if not Skype?

There is no such thing.

There are options however to integrate Skype into existing PBX's but many are not so easy now with products such as Skype for Asterisk being discontinued by Skype to stop such functionality.

Can you describe what is you're actually after, in terms of features/functionality ?

My old company offers "cloud" based private PBXes and there are a number of customers with users throughout the country (and offshore). This is using proper local phone numbers that both can be dialed out from and dialed in to but Skype can also be used alongside these lines in the system if you want cheaper calling rates. The systems are based off "PBX in a flash"

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

This is a pretty standard feature of SIP capable PBXs - Skype offers SIP connection

We can help integrate PBX with Skype if needed, please contact me off the forum if you are interested.

Skype Connect is Ok for international not a bit of an over kill for local NZ calling with packet delay etc.. I've tested it on our systems at work but to-date I don't know of anyone who has taken it up. As Skype is not a normal ISP your on your own if you have problems with setup..

Skype Connect should be ok for Skype callers calling in. I wouldn't use Skype for PSTN calls (local or international) - there are cheaper and more reliable ways to achieve that.

What is the need to use Skype? Just get either a cloud pbx or install one in house.

They are different in purpose. Skype is useful for the millions of subscribers on Skype to get in touch with you for free. You will still need a PBX though.

I install these if you need Skype Integration baked into a fully functional PBX for use with VOIP or PSTN/ISDN. Skype has a SIP for business its not that hard to setup.
