[VoiceOps] Key System Using Polycom VVX

The client is small only 20 seats. We sold them a hosted broadsoft service
with fancy VVX 500 phones, only to find they want to use it as a key
system. We have setup the VVX 500's all with SCA's on each and every phone,
but the amount of registrations (12 SCA's per phone times 20 phones) is
quite excessive.

We have tried to get the client to come around to the idea of not using a
key system, but they just are too old school to change.

So which of the options mentioned would have the best key system
