All you need for hosted PBX service is a broadband Internet connection. If you have high speed internet or can get high speed internet, you are ready to experience all of the benefits of a VOIP phone service for your business. In fact, you will be amazed at what these services can do.
Buying a new phone system for your business is not as easy as it sounds. It is not just the handsets on your desk. There are a number of factors that you need to think about and this article outlines 9 of them. Before you make a purchase of any business system you need to consider all of the points that I mention. If you dont, you could end up with an expensive system that does not actually suit your needs.
Professional Image - In a competitive landscape, gaining an edge in communication can go a long way. Small businesses are not only competing against other small businesses, but with larger more established businesses as well. Larger companies may have an advantage when it comes to more expansive marketing budgets, but small businesses can, in fact, compete with companies that have more marketing power by leveraging the power of a virtual PBX system. It is a cost-effective solution that delivers results in creating an image that rivals larger companies and gives small businesses the appearance of a larger, organized, established company. With greater access to toll free and direct access numbers, seamless connectivity is a feature found in larger companies that can also be attributed to small businesses with a virtual PBX.
Another consideration with business phone systems is the number of phone lines coming in. Smaller systems typically have single lines that come in to a trunk group. This trunk group would allow one call per line and depending on the number of calls you anticipate processing each day, you would be limited to the number of single lines coming in to the phone system. Ask your vendor about the ability of the business phone system to interface with T-1 circuits. T-1 circuits are more expensive than an individual single-line, however they can accommodate up to 23 calls at the same time. If the phone system purchased cannot accommodate T-1 s, then you are limited to multiple single lines. Depending on the number of single lines needed, the cost of individual lines could be more than one T-1.
