Business Phone System

Before we go any further, let us go over the related terminology.

New business phone systems are VoIP (Voice Over IP), Hosted PBX, Managed Voice, or in some cases, business VoIP. The VoIP equipment, servers and services are hosted by the VoIP provider. The provider then routes call off premise.

Back to the subject at hand…chances are that your phone may be older than you are. But what’s even worse is it’s costing you extra money each month to maintain and service. Newer business phone systems are much cheaper and more reliable than previous technologies. The systems are feature rich and can increase the productivity mobile employees.

Older than you – Okay, maybe not as old as you, but it may be close. Older business phone systems may have been out there for as long as 20 years. What you should think about is how much are you paying for the maintenance each month? Business phone system maintenance can cost $200 to $1,000 each month. And depending on how many phones you have and other features your provider is supporting. You also need to look at the price for each required phone line.

The newer business phone systems are much more cost effective because they can be hosted in the cloud. Costs and billing will also be simplified. The phone systems are typically billed as a per seat or per user fee. And all your communication services can be on one monthly bill.

Reliability is important when it comes to your business phone system. And with the call routing taking place off-premise, there will be backup systems are in place.

Hosted Voice business phone systems offer an abundant amount of useful and enhanced features. Most of these features come free with standard service packages. Your service package will depend on your communication requirements.
These features allow you to manage your communications and make your VoIP experience rich and sophisticated:

Caller ID
Voicemail to Email
3-Way Conferencing
Call Blocking
Call Waiting
Call Forwarding
Caller ID With Name
Last Number Re-dial
Simultaneous Ring
