Whether you’re a startup or an established company, your phone system is a vital lifeline between you and your clientele.
However, how do you know which phone system and phone provider is right for you? Or better yet, how do you know if your current system is up to par?
Here are some essential considerations for business owners when choosing a phone system:
Are any of your employees remote?
These days, about a quarter of the workforce works remotely.
VoIP and cloud-based phone systems allow calls to be routed through employees’ computers, enabling them to stay in touch no matter where they are. You could also consider apps that integrate directly with your team members’ cell phones.
On-site VoIP or a cloud-based VoIP system?
If you’re going for a VoIP system, you have the option of hosting the service on site, or through a cloud-based system. An on-site system allows you to be in control of all of your equipment at all times, perfect for the business that has an in-house IT department.
With a cloud-based system, the only hardware you have to worry about is the phones themselves, setting up and configuring the right system for your business from your computer.
Will the system continue to work well for you in the future?
While some companies feel more comfortable with tried-and-true landlines, they’re becoming out-of-date. It’s getting harder to find qualified repair technicians and replacement parts, and most companies are no longer making new landline systems, meaning that you won’t be getting new features that could help you do better business.
