Your phone system is vital to your business. No way around it. Yet many small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are hanging onto their legacy systems, often crossing their fingers hoping it won’t crash. Truth is PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) systems and services are more expensive… and not nearly as productive and effective.
Upgrading a phone system is not something businesses generally look forward to, but with today’s technology it should viewed as an opportunity. A VoIP phone system will add great value and position your business for long-term growth. Your business depends on communications. Transitioning to VoIP and leveraging a hosted platform – in the cloud – combines cost-effective, transcending technology with integration of voice and data.
With a hosted VoIP phone system, there are no large upfront capital investments and nothing to maintain. Your business will have access to enterprise-class features. As a managed service, the provider maintains and operates the system. Allow a VoIP provider to handle telephony maintenance so you can stick to your core business. Grow your business through easier management and predictable monthly costs!
With VoIP, you can link a distributed workforce, giving outside offices, sales forces and remote employees greater flexibility. Your hosted VoIP phone system will streamline communications, provide continuity, and improve collaboration. By merging communications onto a single VoIP platform, you can integrate voicemail with email, sync mobile devices, and much more. Grow your business through unified communications and enhanced productivity!
One of the inherent benefits of hosted VoIP is the ability to easily scale the system based on your needs. Expanding the system through additional phone lines, extensions, and/or features is simple. Adding offices or even moving locations becomes a much easier task. Moving or rearranging desktop phones is as easy as unplugging from one network outlet and plugging back into another. Make it easy for your business to grow!
Since hosted VoIP is not location dependent, business continuity and disaster recovery plans are not limited by hard lines into a facility. Recovery sites can be set up in advance and call routing and dialing plans can be scripted in the event something unforeseen occurs. Hosted providers set up geographically diverse, redundant infrastructures. Business continuity is already built into hosted VoIP technology, which reduces the need to purchase more. Protect your business for growth!
Bottom line: hosted VoIP is simply good business to grow your business. It offers an exciting, affordable way for you to upgrade legacy phone systems, and ultimately save you money. Does it really save money? Yes. SMBs can immediately reduce long-distance calling charges and save on other usage-based variables such as conferencing. Due to improved productivity and decreased IT management, not to mention free upgrades, mid- and long-term cost analyses become even more attractive.
