For both small and large businesses the ability to stay agile is an excellent advantage over competitors. Your telephone system can be a fantastic tool in remaining agile as you grow.
Here is how…
Business expansion? -Not a problem
Traditional systems can limit your capability to grow adding further costs as you do so. Hosted solutions are flexible and scalable, with hosted telephony you can control your costs more easily as you don’t need to buy a new system each time you hire someone new. You can add new staff to the system as soon as they join, setting employees up quickly without delay. Updates can be made in a matter of minutes keeping systems fresh and effective. With a hosted solution you can quickly add extensions and services to match your requirements so as your business develops and grows, so can your system- without the price tag of a traditional system.
Reducing costs is always a winner especially if the service you offer is enhanced and not compromised. It’s a win win situation. Compared to traditional phone systems the cost of a hosted system is minimal, with no capital outlay on expensive hardware. You won’t be faced with the cost of purchases, maintenance and repairs. There are no upfront costs.
Working on the move
The modern day way of working is that businesses are never in one place. With expansions requiring set ups in new offices and working from temporary locations such as from home becoming more common, how can your phone system keep up?
The good news is that with a hosted solution you no longer need to be pinned to one desk to continue working effectively. Hosted telephone systems are not affected by a change in location. Your phone number comes with you, and calls can be directed to mobile numbers in the downtime of the move, so your customers are none the wiser as the service you provide isn’t interrupted.
The same applies to working from home, as long as you have a working internet connection your phone can connect to the offices system, so calls can continue to be routed to you and transferred from your colleagues in the usual way.
Hopefully this is something you will ever have to deal with, but if your business is affected by a fire or a flood for example, your phone system is more likely to be protected. Unlike a traditional system which is vulnerable due to a specific phone line being used. With hosted telephony it is easy for you to divert your calls to an unaffected mobile or landline minimising your down time. You are also able to record an informative message or send out bulk sms messages to make sure clients are informed if the problem will effect the service.
