Almost all business owners nowadays will have encountered the cloud at some point or other. Either in the office or at home. Cloud services such as Google Drive, Dropbox and iCloud are so popular now amongst users that they have become part of our everyday lives.
Whilst in a corporate environment much of the focus is on storage and software in the cloud, infrastructure outsourcing also offers significant benefits for businesses of all sizes and industry verticals. Hosted VoIP phone systems can help bring the power of the cloud to your business communications infrastructure.
Your company’s reputation is everything. It affects how good your sales are, and it even impacts your business partnerships. Every business looks for ways to save money whilst trying to provide a high-quality service to its customers. It’s almost always the case that operational expenditure comes before capital expenditure.
When it comes to choosing the right telephone solution for your business you’re left with two options. .Invest in a traditional onsite telephone solution (PBX) installed on every site. Or subscribe to a cloud-based alternative where the PBX is centralised by being hosted in the cloud.
With traditional PBX you pay for all the equipment upfront and as its a premises-based solution, the hardware appliance is kept on-site at your location. Often with these types of systems, you need to pay a yearly cost towards maintenance for the system. This is in order to avoid expensive call-out charges if you have any faults with the system.
Cost savings with Hosted VoIP
With Hosted VoIP the only upfront cost you need to pay for is for the IP phones themselves. After this, you pay a monthly subscription fee per user.
Cloud-based systems tend to be the most attractive for businesses with 5 to 15 employees. However, some larger companies make hundreds of calls a day to different locations around the world. A cloud-based system is a much cheaper alternative since call traffic is routed over IP using SIP Trunks. And as long as you have an internet connection you can have access to all the different office features wherever you are in the world.
