Five Ways Hosted PBX Benefits Your Business
In business today, technology has made it possible to take our offices with us: in the field, on the road and across the country. Even if staffs are dispersed between branch offices, on-the-road crews and remote teams, business carries on without a hitch because of tools that allow us to collaborate no matter where we are.
But keeping employees cohesive and customers, vendors and partners in close contact requires tools that keep your business mobile, efficient and engaged. An effective business phone system is where that starts. For many businesses, a Hosted PBX phone system has many benefits. Here are five major ones:
A hosted PBX phone system is an IP-based solution that is provisioned and accessed via the Internet, making it easy to set up and maintain. Here, we go deeper into five major benefits businesses have with a Hosted PBX phone system.
1. Minimal Up-Front Cost
With a hosted phone system, up-front cost is minimal. There’s no major capital investment in equipment or infrastructure because there’s little to be purchased. The phone system runs off the same connection as your internet service, making the transition to your hosted solution seamless and cost-effective.
2. Flexibility to Fit Changing Needs
Your business is changing year-after-year, so having a phone system that scales easily is not only more convenient, but good for the bottom line—you only pay for what you need. You can customize your phones to best suit how you do business, and because everything can be accessed and managed via the cloud, you can login to your web portal to adjust features and devices as you need.
3. Opportunity to Work Remotely
In the age of the internet, business is no longer confined to just one location. Mobility is a key feature of a hosted PBX solution. An integrated system gives your employees the freedom to do business away from their desks, using any device they choose, such as their phone, tablet or laptop.
4. Business Continuity is Possible
A temporary shutdown as a result of a power outage or other disaster (such as a fire or flood) doesn’t mean your business has to shut down, too. Hosted PBX ensures uninterrupted service since your hardware and data are stored off-site. Calls can be quickly rerouted to other phones so you can continue doing business, even if your offices are damaged.
5. Managed by Your Service Provider
Hosted PBX leaves hardware maintenance, software updates, troubleshooting, network management with your service provider. Want to add lines or implement features? For a simple monthly fee, your service provider handles the fixes, while your business gets the features it needs to keep business going.
With consumer demands and business environments changing, you want to make sure your phones can keep up. A hosted PBX system offers the functionality, features and flexibility a business often needs to be successful.
