What are your needs?
First step to consider a new phone system is to identify your communication needs for the type of business your run, type of users, organization size and your business growth plans. What are the key communication requirements that your organization need to meet now and in the future? Do you have or will need a call center? Do you need video conferencing or web meeting? Do you need integration with a CRM system? Do you need features provided by a PBX? If yes, Hosted PBX, In-house software-based PBX or hardware PBX? What are the costs?
Understanding the modern features and evaluating their operational impact would better guide you through determining your needs.
Comparing all types of PBX, software-based PBX and some of the hosted PBX provide efficiency and greater flexibility that are just not possible or available with a hardware-based PBX. For instance system upgrade and integration with applications to name a few!
VoIP, digital or analog phone system?
Consider this situation: Your business is growing and you just hired a new VP of Sales to drive your business growth. You need a new extension for your new VP, who needs a direct line, mobility, web conferencing and integration to your CRM system. The complexity and cost to meet all of these requirements on an analog phone system if even possible would be huge compare to a digital phone system.
If you are looking for superior cost savings, great flexibility, mobility, easier upgrade path, more advanced features and integration with existing and future business systems such as CRM, messaging, and social networking, undoubtedly the answer is the VoIP Phone System.
