What is the one piece of technology that you rely on most in your office? No, not your computer; it is your phone system! It is the one piece of technology that your business can simply not do without. The right phone system can boost productivity while also bettering customer service, both of which can have a huge impact on your bottom line.
But with so many options on the market, how can you ensure you choose the right phone syste?
Deciding between Analog and Voice over IP (VoIP)
Before looking into anything else, you must first make a big decision: which makes more sense, an analog based phone system or a VoIP system? Well, more and more companies are choosing VoIP because it offers more bang for your buck, especially for small business owners.
Do you want an On-Premises System or a VoIP Hosted System?
There are viable option for both, including the Cisco Unified Communications 300 Series (on-premises), the Cisco Smart Business Communications System (on-premises), or the Cisco Hosted Small Business Communications (hosted VoIP). Both systems have their advantages. Choosing between the two often boils down to whether or not you have the staff and resources to manage an in-house phone system.
What Phone Features do you need?
Next, you must decide what features your business needs in its new phone system. Considerations include:
- Incoming and outgoing call management capabilities
- Monitoring features such as caller ID
- Basic conferencing
- Automated call attendant
- Call center capabilities
- Integration with desktop computers or mobile devices
- And more!
