Finding the right phone system is a crucial aspect of any small business plan. But with so many options available on the market in a variety of configurations, offering an ever-growing range of features and benefits, how can you be sure that you purchase the best system for your business needs? And what’s the best way to deploy it?
There are many things to consider when evaluating and implementing a new small business phone system, including:
Understanding User Needs: First and foremost, your small business phone system should give your employees the tools they need to be successful. It’s important to know which tools your workforce needs. Does your workforce need easy access to rich-media conferencing tools? Do workers need one phone number that simultaneously rings on multiple devices?
Small Business Phone System features and capabilities to consider include:
- Mobile softphones, for using a computer as a phone
- Automated attendant
- Paging and intercom
- Presence technology—the ability to quickly identify who within your organization is available at any given moment, as well as the best way to reach them
- Wireless IP phones, enabling workers to access data and be easily reachable, even as they roam about a sales floor, warehouse, or other location
- Integration with a customer relationship management (CRM) system
- Unified messaging, with notifications by e-mail, text message, or phone
Don’t be Afraid to Change: The right small business phone system will allow you to evolve your business practices, allowing your employees do things that were not possible before. Don’t resist this change. Instead, embrace it!
