The M7324 Console speakerphone
What is an M7324 phone?
The M7324 console phone is the best choice for a full featured terminal or central answering position because it offers 24 programmable buttons with an LCD display for one-button access to any combination of lines,
features, and autodial numbers. Up to two Central Answering Position (C.A.P.) modules (with 48 buttons per module) can be attached to the M7324 phone to create powerful call coverage for many lines or to
accommodate additional Norstar features.
Who should use an M7324 phone?
The M7324 phone, with or without C.A.P. modules, is designed for secretaries and receptionists for centralized call answering. It is also useful for managers, professiona ls, and system administrators requiring high feature usage and access to various lines, including private lines.
What type of applications use the M7324 phone?
For smaller businesses and applications, the M7324 by itself is a central answering position. If all incoming calls are answered by one person and then distributed throughout the organization, then the purchase of an M7324 should be considered. Larger businesses and applications require the addition of C.A.P. modules. For example, stock brokers could use the M7324 with two C.A.P. modules for fast autodial access to preferred customers.
The C.A.P. add-on module
What is a C.A.P. Module?
The Central Answering Position, or C.A.P. is a module connected to an M7324 phone that provides 48
additional memory buttons which can be used to show a busy or idle status for up to 48 more sets, as well as to program system features or autodial numbers. Up to two C.A.P. modules can be added to any M7324 phone. Up to five enhanced C.A.P. positions can be supported on Modular ICS systems. The Compact ICS systems support only one enhanced C.A.P. position.
Who should use a C.A.P. module?
Secretaries and receptionists with M7324 phones responsible for call coverage for many lines will find the C.A.P. very useful. Secretaries, managers, and others providing backup answering services will also improve their productivity using a C.A.P. module, as will people requiring high feature usage or line access capabilities, such as telemarketing center managers.

The M7310 is useful for departments such as purchasing, sales, or accounting, where the same suppliers, customers, or accounts are frequently called.
