Considerations Why Move Your Business To VoIP PBX

Business Continuity

A VoIP PBX allows businesses to incorporate continuity options, in the case of disastrous events such as fires or floods, your call data and information is stored safely, not to mention your phones are hosted outside of the premises, meaning you will still have functioning phones. Calls incoming to the business can be transferred to an alternative number, for example, you might have business mobiles, again providing your business with a complete business continuity plan in the event that problems occur.

Remote & Flexible Work Opportunities

The concept of remote working is an ever growing factor for businesses however, employees do still need to remain contactable and connected to the organisation’s phone system. With VoIP PBX phone systems, your employees can be allocated a virtual phone number,  all calls will then be forwarded to the employee’s phone and they’ll appear as they are sitting in the office.

✓ Scalability Benefits

Businesses naturally grow and shrink as the years go by, VoIP PBX systems function on a per seat basis. You can speedily add or remove new people to the telephone system as when meaning your telephony can scale up or down as your business sees fit.

✓ Capital Saving

When it comes to internal calls/ (peer to peer) they can be very costly, however, what can be more detrimental to a business is ineffective communication systems. VoIP PBX systems negate the need for paying for internal calls meaning whether you are in the same building or a different office, you are able to call your peer at no cost.

✓ Great Audio Quality

Cloud telephony will use up much more bandwidth compared to a traditional telephone system, but cloud telephony delivers better audio quality, known as HD telephony. VoIP PBX systems give your business HD sound quality which is unrivalled.

There is no need to pay anyone to upgrade your telephone system when you have a VoIP PBX. Upgrades are taken place within the cloud and are free. Your business does not need to worry about upgrading telephony.
