When a company invests in a virtual PBX system, it is also investing in a brand new marketing program. Having a toll free phone number and a professional greeting enable a business to promote itself as established, structured, and organized. The first impression many customers get is from a business s phone system. These advanced features make sure that impression is a good one.
Larger companies on the other hand, are better off hiring professionals to take care of setting up sophisticated systems to handle their specific needs. If you re wary of hiring pros to handle the job, just remember that the cost of fixing a problematic business phone system is often greater than hiring experts to take care of everything for you.
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.
When looking at business phone systems, few look at the scalability of the system and whether it will meet their future needs. As a business grows, there will be a need to add additional extensions as well as phone lines coming in to adequately support the daily call volume. Buying a phone system today that won t support the business tomorrow will only lead to more expense later on down the line.
