There is no denying that the on-premise PBX has served businesses well for many years and in some cases, continues to do so. However, as the saying goes “all good things must come to an end” and traditional premise based solutions are becoming a thing of the past.
Nowadays, organisations require more flexibility from their phone system. Workforces have gone mobile, and they need a phone system that can move with them.
Hosted telephony is a telephone system that resides in the cloud rather than in your office. Users access the system through a standard IP handset or a softphone – a screen-based virtual phone with headset. Calls are made and received over a broadband connection. This means, you can call people from anywhere in the world if you have an internet connection.
If you are still relying on a traditional PBX in your organisation, it could be time to consider moving to a hosted solution to realise all the benefits that cloud-based telephony has to offer.
Hosted phone systems bring landlines and mobiles together in a single cohesive phone network, with one all-encompassing contract and less billing paperwork. Everything is housed under one virtual telecommunications roof so the system can be updated easily and expanded effortlessly. This lends a degree of flexibility that is ideal for companies as they grow, diversify or relocate.
A hosted telephone system puts your business in control. Your organisation’s entire communications across multiple sites and countries, can be managed easily, right down to the individual user level, through a simple interface.
Hosted telephony is the future of telecommunications and can improve the way your organisation communicates internally and externally with customers, prospects, partners, investors, etc.
