How a Cloud Based Business Telephone System is Beneficial to Your Small or Medium Sized Business
What is a Cloud Based Business Telephone System?
Often times we associate the word “cloud” with storing data and files, but the cloud is so much more than that. Cloud based phone systems allow telecommunications using the internet. Cloud based phone systems offer the same capabilities and features as on-premise phone systems, and they can be customized to suit the costs of a small or medium sized business.
How Do Cloud Based Phone Systems Work?
A cloud based business telephone system delivers calls over the internet. Instead of paying for standard phone lines, you pay a cloud telephony services provider who will route your calls and services to your phones through the internet. The cloud telephony services provider will provide high voice quality and reliable services just like your old telephone provider. Cloud telephony services providers offer several packages to fit different business needs.
Benefits of a Cloud Based Business Telephone System
- You can keep your existing business numbers and move them over to the cloud.
- Cost: On-premise telephone systems can require pricey equipment and hardware. Cloud telephony services are simply covered in a low monthly fee, without the large upfront costs. In a lot of cases save on your monthly phone bill and get new phones!
- Scalability: You want your phone system to be able to grow with your business. Cloud based phone systems allow your business to add lines and features as your company grows. Your package can be as big or small as your system requires.
- Integrate multiple offices/employees while still offering centralized services (intercom, transfers, and voicemail/email).
- Features: Cloud based phone systems have the same upgrades and features as on-premise phone systems. Small and medium sized businesses can customize what they want in their packages, and they can have the same big-business features that keep the business looking professional and customer friendly.
- Simplicity: You don’t need an on-site tech team to figure out your phone systems. Many cloud based phone systems offer easy-to-use dashboards to configure features and users, without having to have telecommunications knowledge.
- Technology: Always have the latest technology and phones available.
- Support: Your cloud based phone system can be supported by your provider, like HRCT.
There are many features that can be included with a cloud based business telephone system. Everything a small or medium sized business could want can be included in your cloud telephony services. The following is just a sampling of features that can be included:
