Surprisingly because your business recently invested in a new phone system this does not mean that you cannot benefit from hosted telecoms?
Cloud based phone systems can be integrated with your existing architecture. Meaning either traditional on-site PBX ‘s or newer VoiP ‘on-site’ hardware, can utilize the cheaper SIP trunking service, or integrate a more expansive and all encompassing iP PBX. Cloud providers can expand your existing set-up from integrating complimentary features and services unavailable on ‘on-site’ phone systems, many due to cost. In addition Cloud upgrades allow expansion of: users and trunks more cost effectively than upgrading your existing on premises equipment.
Like everything else in the world of technology, business communications aren’t easy to keep on top of. There are a vast amount of telephony solutions on the market and choosing the most economical and practical system for your business is a long and gruelling task. This task hasn’t been made any simpler since phone systems have evolved and can now be stored in the cloud, or has it?
Scalability is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing between traditional and hosted PBX systems. If your business is growing exponentially, then you should probably take your system into the cloud, as it’s easy to scale up or down; users, handsets or features when you need to. Like a hosted system, an onsite PBX is great for scaling up users yet its far more expensive. The cloud delivers viability and means your business can add more users when your business grows, in addition you will be able to integrate new sites and homeworker / remote worker solutions, all working together seamlessly as if they were all in one office.
The ongoing hot topic is still whether the PBX (traditional on-site telephone system) is suffering a slow death, or is it still a viable solution for organisations replacing or upgrading their communications platforms. The Cloud is becoming more prevalent in all aspects of our everyday lives and very much is the future and whether PBX vendors step up their marketing campaigns or not, continually stating the PBX is still as popular as ever, does not help when market research shows Cloud Phone Systems are growing like fury and by 2020 research predicts that cloud will accomodate up to 50% of all new PBX sales. The choices are clear, yet picking the right cloud partner makes a difference as the portfolios vary from provider to provider and the difference is considerable. The Vital Telcom design team were formed from long standing industry professionals, this base off knowledge has ensured ‘in-built features’ and the technology offered with the allin1number communications suite stretches not only beyond the traditional PBX offering, yet beyond our Cloud PBX competitors too.
