A modern phone system for your business offers cutting-edged technology, including but not limited to:
- Multi-site networking
- Call recording
- Voicemail to email
- Automatic call distribution
- Cell phone mobility
- Web and audio conferencing
- Desktop call control
- Browser-based administration
- VoIP – cloud, hosted and on premise offerings
Being proactive and staying ahead of your telecommunication needs is critically important, however justifying a business phone system upgrade can be challenging. Here are a few signs you’re in need and don’t know it.
Modern Features & Capabilities
Perhaps you need teleconferencing availability, or want your computer and phone to integrate? If it has been several years since you changed your business phone system, then there are many new features to see.
Business Expansion / Move
If you are moving most new systems can scale up or down to accommodate the infrastructure of the new building. If you are expanding now may be a great time to look at your current system and determine if can expand with you.
Phone Provider Problems
If you are consistently paying for visits from on-site phone line technicians, it is time to look at a new system. With most of the new phone systems a lot of the need for your hardware provider goes away. Most new systems can be accessed through the internet, saving time and cost.
More Integration (travel, remote options)
Does your team travel to client visits, or to other offices? Do you have remote workers, or are you considering a work-from-home process? Mobile forwarding is often a standard feature with new business phone systems.
Your phone system should enhance your business – not inhibit it. Be proactive and explore options to improve your technology before it becomes disruptive and too expensive. Whether or not an immediate switch is right for you, let a trusted professional provide you options.
