First things first
When it comes to upgrading the telecommunication system in your office, the very first thing you would need to do is ask your employees for the complaints and suggestions they have. For instance, ask them about the types of issues which are occurring in the currently installed phone system and I am sure most of them would give you a lot of recommendations. Listen to your employees carefully and choose the best for them as your company will only grow if your workforce can work without interruptions.et me help you with this; Following are the two most popular types of corporate phone systems you can consider.
- Digital phone systems
- Internet (VoIP or Cloud) phone systems
Digital phone systems
Digital phone systems are small box-looking phone systems that are generally mounted on a wall or placed on the desk in a cabinet. They are typically connected to your phone lines and all the handsets you own for your business purposes. Tough they are highly reliable phone systems they can’t be called a very future proof solution since they work using fixed lines. Now, as these phone systems can only be used in a particular place, they can become costly by involving the cost of equipment, installation fee, and maintenance cost.
Moreover, you would need to pay the complete amount in advance in most cases which can be heavy damage to your finances. This is something you should be concerned about if you are planning to install digital phone systems.
Internet phone systems (VoIP or Cloud)
A VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone system is a virtual phone system which is commonly known as Cloud phone system. Instead of your office building, this system will be based in a data center somewhere and the calls will be routed in and out of your business using a wireless access point. These may not be compatible with the phone system you already have and that’s why they can be a little expensive but consider it as a onetime investment.
Since they run on the internet it is vital to hire a reliable wireless access point supplier because as fast as the internet speed is your company’s productivity will not be hampered by interruptions in the phone line.
VOIP phone systems are better for medium to large size business firms who have a leased line (a typical high-speed internet connection) that is compatible with this phone system.
