VTech ErisBusinessSystem™
Four-line office phones that have it all
Not all offices are created equal. But no matter your size or function, one thing is true: You need a phone system that has the
features, value and flexibility to meet your office’s high demands. The VTech ErisBusinessSystem has it all.
This 4-line, expandable system keeps up with your growing needs but also keeps it simple—no need for complicated wiring
or expensive installation technicians. It’s a low-maintenance way to manage your calls and keep your business thriving.

UP406 Extension Deskset
UP407 Accessory Cordless Handset
A cost-effective solution
Cordless freedom
ErisBusinessSystem is one of the most affordable 4-line office
phone systems on the market today. It comes with all the
features you’ll find in a traditional PBX (public branch exchange)
but on a smaller scale—and at a fraction of the cost.
Stay plugged in, even away from your desk. An accessory
cordless handset lets you keep working while you’re on the
move in your office. For hands-free mobility, add a VTech
IS6100 accessory cordless headset to the system.
Easy installation and setup
Keeps you connected, 24/7
Setting up ErisBusinessSystem really is as easy as 1-2-3.
Just connect your Ethernet cable and up to four telephone
lines to the main console. Connect your desksets to
your Ethernet network and then register your wireless
accessories—handsets and headsets. No professional
assistance required.1
With a built-in auto attendant, you’ll never miss a message
again. Customize call handling during office hours and
after, making sure callers are automatically routed to the
right extensions and always feel like a priority.
Grows with you
Get up and running right away with just the main console.
As your business grows, add extension desksets—up to 15
total—and compatible cordless accessories.
Peace of mind, all the time
When you choose VTech for your business, you’re buying
more than a phone system. You’re partnering with the #1
manufacturer of cordless phones in the world, with over
20 years of experience and 41 million handsets shipped.
Plus, you’ll enjoy the reliability that comes with an industryleading, standard two-year warranty.
Brains, brawn and beauty
Transform your office with a system that has it all
5-party conferencing
Digital answering system
Let more people in on the conversation—up to five,
including you, two external lines and two other stations
in the system.
Never miss a call with up to 60 minutes of recording time
for incoming messages and memos on the main console
and 20 minutes on each deskset.2
Full-duplex speakerphone
Two-way call recording
Finally, a speakerphone that can keep up with your calls.
Increase participation by allowing parties on both ends to
speak and be heard—at the same time—for conversations
that are more true to life.
Need to review important details from a phone call?
Two-way call recording lets you capture both sides of the
conversation.
Auto attendant
Program up to 32 phone numbers for easy one- and twotouch dialing (16 one-touch, 16 two-touch).
Program the system to answer outside calls, provide callers
with a company directory, automatically forward calls to
specific extensions and let callers record voice messages
when there’s no answer—any time of the day or night.
Call transfer
Keep business moving by transferring calls to other stations
in the system, right away.
Speed dials
Line groups
Keep everyone in a department in the loop with line
groups. Assign specific telephone lines to groups of
stations, ensuring someone’s always available to
answer a call.
Do-it-yourself setup
Your home or office telephone lines connect to the main console. The desksets leverage your existing wired Ethernet
network connections for installation that is quick and simple. No additional assistance required!
