Cloud-based phone systems empower small businesses to harness the power of the latest tech developments to raise their company to greater heights. Dynamics Telephony Phone System addresses all of a business’s technological needs, while leaving room for scalability at a price point that won’t drain the budget.
Switching your phone system to a cloud-based network enables you to:
Capitalize on the newest telephony tools and features
Raise employee productivity, efficiency, and responsiveness
Eliminate on-site hardware that eats away at your budget
Expand your organization with a highly scalable solution
Integrate third-party software and offer mobility applications for remote staff
Last year showed all of us that the world can change overnight, setting the technological trends for years to come on a global scale. As such, forward-thinking businesses should take the necessary steps to future-proof their company, while preparing for the existing traditional telephone network, like all other legacy systems, to reach its inevitable end-of-life deadline.
Cloud Phone Systems Are Simple and Cost Effective
On-premise phone systems—powered by servers stashed in the basement—feature budgets that can vary from month-to-month, depending on a few factors. The hardware that powers on-site systems requires regular maintenance and software upgrades. And as the system ages, performance inevitably degrades, meaning you’ll have to learn how to manage the occasional malfunction or breakdown.
With a Cloud Phone System, you pay a monthly subscription that grants you access to an off-site system. Subscription fees are typically based on how many “seats”—or devices—you use. And the fees are usually all-inclusive, meaning there are no special additional fees for voice features or usage. This is what gives you the predictable month-to-month phone system and service budget. What’s more, any system maintenance or performance issues are handled by the provider, not by you.
One of the most drastic differences between budgeting for a hosted/cloud system versus on-site system is the cost of on-site hardware. The traditional technology involves purchasing the complete system, or private branch exchange (PBX), which is maintained in your office. Those systems are an expensive initial capital expense that, once installed, require upkeep and repairs that will cost you even more money. And if your business expands to another location, you’ll have to purchase additional systems and tools.
The cloud eliminates most hardware requirements. There’s still a PBX, but it’s maintained off-site by your cloud system provider, who also handles all system maintenance and software updates. For the most part, the only in-office hardware you need for cloud systems is cloud-compatible phones and a good POE (Power-Over Ethernet) switch and firewall (also known by some as a router). The lack of extensive hardware demands also makes it far easier to expand your system to accommodate new hires and offices.
Cloud phone systems also relieve tech support headaches because they are managed remotely, on a virtual basis, so all technical issues are handled over the phone. Often, your maintenance calls are included with your subscription fee, as is your telephone device warranty and all routine programming changes, and even ongoing training!
