Hosted v On Premises PBX
Is your legacy system giving you all you need? If you use a PBX in your company, it may well be time to think about moving to a hosted solution to take advantage of the many benefits an IP cloud system can offer.
Hosted telephony technology has evolved incredibly, so much so, that it is predicted that ISDN will be extinct by 2025!
With no capital outlay, a hosted telecom system will suit any size organisation from one man band, to large call centre, one location or multiple locations and is normally charged at a set price per month.
A hosted telephone system runs on a server sat in a data centre (The cloud) instead of a PBX in your office. Calls are made on IP telephones over a broadband connection.
Hosted telephony means no costly PBX maintenance or upgrades. We are responsible for the hardware and software, including system upgrades.
As well as giving your organisation access to low-cost and free IP calling, a hosted system gives you a huge array of fantastic features that an on premise PBX system simply can’t. It gives scalability for when your business grows and flexibility to tailor the system exactly to your needs. Disaster recovery is standard, so no missed calls!
So do you want:-
- No capital outlay?
- To make savings on your telecoms bills?
- To have the flexibility for staff to work from any location?
- No costly PBX maintenance costs?
- To have access to instant upgrades and make changes when you want?
- To benefit from Inbuilt business continuity feature?
- Free inter-office calls?
In a nutshell -a quick comparison guide
|Flexibility||You are in control – Add or take away lines as required||Can’t be done|
|Savings||Substantial savings on both calls and line rentals||More costly|
|Business Continuity||Calls can be re-routed easily when disaster strikes||Calls certainly cannot be diverted quickly|
|Future||The way forward – convergence for voice and data||Becoming extinct|
|Control||Move your phones around from location to location as long as you have a data connection you just plug in and go!||Changes take months depending on your supplier|
There really couldn’t be a better time to upgrade your traditional phone system and move to hosted.
