Before you start looking for business phone systems providers, making a brief list of the features you want your communications system to have. If your small business is on a budget, make sure to prioritize the feature you need, and set aside those you can live without. The goal of any business phone system is to simplify the often complicated process of communication between staff and between the company and customers. Simplicity is efficient, and that s exactly what you should be looking for in a telephone system for your business.
Like needed space for announcements, the space for voicemails should be able to meet the needs of the business without the danger of running out of available space. Although this rarely happens, there are situations where even smaller companies receive a lot of voicemails in any one given day. This can quickly take up a lot of hard drive space so the space allotted for voicemails needs to be adequate for today s volume as well as any anticipated volume in the future. This is yet another reason why careful planning is needed when deciding on an appropriate business phone system.
For VoIP traffic, you ll need to make sure that both your network and PBX can handle the expected call volume. There are special considerations for VoIP beyond the telephony aspect. The network will also need to be scaled out in the event of future growth and your current network configuration and utilization should be taken in to account anytime you anticipate a greater need for network bandwidth. Nothing will kill voice quality more than contention for bandwidth on the network and it s imperative that a network assessment be completed prior to VoIP s implementation.
What sort of calling patterns do your staff make- Is it best to have your staff chained to a desk or is it better to have them out of the office and in front of clients? Unified communications mean you can have your staff doing what they should be doing but still being contactable.
