In this short article I want to focus on eight important reasons businesses should consider a hosted phone system. every day, I get to see a lot of companies tied to ancient non-smart phone systems, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, however, if you or your business are in that list, here are some facts that may help you consider upgrading.
1. It reduces the size of the budget
With a cloud-based phone system you need not buy a “box” nor pay for installation and fine tuning. You start saving because you get a service for which you pay monthly; also, you don’t need to pay for phone and data lines.
2. You won’t need too much IT support
With a cloud-based phone system your telephony turns into another computer application or program. You manage everything from a web page on your computer or smart device.
3. Monthly costs instead of capital expenses
Since there are no large servers or systems to purchase, all you have is an affordable monthly service fee that dramatically improves productivity. No need to worry about phone carrier contracts because it is all included.
4. Business continuity
If anything goes wrong like the Internet goes down or there is flooding or a hurricane, you can always forward all incoming calls to your cell phone or to another branch. So, you don’t have to worry about the continuity of your business; it does not happen the same when using legacy PBX systems.
A cloud-based phone system is not tied to support a fixed number of employees. A cloud-based phone system can scale up or down according to the current need.
6. Great features
A cloud phone system has all those whistles and blows you ever wanted. They are all included, and you don’t have to pay extra for them. Some of those features may include HD voice, automated dialing or interactive voice responses.
7. Forever updated
Remember there is no physical box at our premises. So, the provider will maintain and upgrade everything from a central network. This means they will push updates automatically without you ever having to worry.
8. Conduct business anywhere
Ah mobility! A cloud phone system frees you from your desk and enables new scenarios like teleworkers, mobile collaboration and more. You can work from anywhere you have Internet access.
