It’s safe to say that most business owners nowadays will have encountered the cloud at some point or other. This could be 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.
In a corporate environment much of the focus is on storage and software in the cloud. However, 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.
Every business looks for ways to save money whilst at the same time providing a high quality service to their customers. It’s almost always the case that operational expenditure comes before capital expenditure.
When choosing the right telephone solution for your business you’re left with two options. Invest in a traditional onsite telephone solution (PBX) installed in 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 it’s a premises-based solution. This means the hardware appliance is kept on-site at your location. Often with these types of system you need to pay a yearly cost towards maintenance for the system. Doing this, allows you 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 it is typically charged as a monthly subscription fee per user.
Cloud based systems tend to be the most attractive for businesses with 5 to 15 employees. However, with some larger companies who make hundreds of calls a day to different locations around the world, a cloud based system can make for a much cheaper alternative since call traffic is routed over IP using SIP Trunks. And as its Cloud-based you can have access to all the different office features wherever you are in the world. All you need is an internet connection and away you go!
