Every business needs telephones and for small businesses that want to grow, the stakes are particularly high. Often the first contact with customers takes place over the phone. It’s also the main connection to employees, partners and vendors. The quality and reliability of the telephone system not only makes business possible, but it also gives customers a taste of the professionalism and personality of the company.
Given the cost and resource advantages of cloud-based applications and platforms many small businesses are turning to cloud based phone systems. There are compelling advantages of a cloud-based solution that go far beyond cost as well as considerations to explore before making the move.
Cloud-Based VoIP Advantages
Pay for Only What You Need Now: While a traditional phone system involves an initial capital expense for hardware and software and requires companies to anticipate how much capacity they will need in the future, hosted VoIP makes it possible for small, but growing business to pay for only the services they need now. Additional seats and services can be added as needed so owners can be confident their solution will grow with them without needing to tie up cash now.
Get Out of the Business of Running a Phone System: Most small businesses don’t have a large IT staff. In fact, many are lucky if there is someone on the team with a technology background at all. Managed, cloud-based phones are ideal because the vendor takes reasonability for delivery, maintenance and support of the system.
Small Business Phone System, Big Enterprise Features: While small businesses need a solution that is easy to use and comes with low start-up costs, to stay competitive, they can also rely on sophisticated features enjoyed by larger companies. Many VoIP solutions offer software solutions like; automated attendants, online management, advanced voicemail to email, find me/follow me capabilities and more.
When it comes to flexibility, management and features, the advantages of a managed, cloud-based telephone solution for small business are undeniable.
