When buying a new business phone system, you have several key criteria to keep in mind, including:
- Base System: The base system, or cabinet, controls the entire phone system and will be the main limiting factor for your phone system both in terms of features and expandability.
- The Actual Phones: There are several different types of phones available, each with unique features.
- Add-ons: What about the extra features, like voicemail, music on hold, CTI applications, and more? These add-ons may not come standard with your phone system.
- Installation: Installation, especially running wires through already furnished buildings, can add significantly onto your total system cost.
- Everything else: Don’t forget about training, programming, service, and future modifications. You need to consider everything!
But perhaps no criterion is quite as important as Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). You will need to take not only the costs of the above criteria into consideration, but also the return on investment you will achieve with your desired system. A more expensive system may cost more initially, but the savings you can see in the long run may make it worthwhile.
