Phones Systems that Expand with Your Business

As IP PBX phones systems today are basically computers running phone management software, it is easy to expand by providing more resources (and buying more licenses if needed) without having to change anything in the way your business works, or set up a whole new system with different logic.

Your Choice of Phones

In the past phones were normally locked to one single vendor. XYZ phone system worked with XYZ phones, and as you could only get it from them, the prices were high, and the customer was captivated after the initial purchase. Many of today’s phones systems support a standard called SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) that is used for voice communications over the network. Also, most of the IP phones support that standard, which means that when buying such an open standards system, you are never captivated by a single vendor. This makes the TCO lower, and also allows greater flexibility in choosing the right phone for your business, over a wide range of available price and feature levels as well as more and less expensive vendors.

Making Adjustments to the Phone System

In small businesses phone systems used to be very static. One reason is that if “it works, why to touch it?” Another reason, though, was that in the old days, each change required the expensive intervention of the dealer. Not anymore. Modern phone systems like CompletePBX come with a user-friendly, web-based user interface, with different levels of authorizations.

While more complex things like networking and security will still be in the domain of the dealer, more day-to-day things, like changing a name of a user, modifying pickup groups, making a user an agent in a queue, changing opening hours and so on, may be easily performed by an employee that is always available and does not cost extra. This does not only reduce expenses but also helps you use the phone system as the business needs it, without compromise.

One User, Many Phones

Today’s communication goes far beyond a one-user-one-phone environment. With remote and mobile employees and business owners and managers that want to be available out of the office, a more flexible solution is required.

Small business IP PBX phone systems today can offer multiple devices per user, so that one may get a call on the mobile phone, desk phone (in the office or at home) or laptop under the same extension, with the same behaviour and rules, applied, no matter what device is being used. At the end of the day, we are talking to a person, not a device.

Small Business IP PBX Phone Systems with Enterprise System Muscle

At the end of the day small businesses, just like a large enterprise, have their communication with customers at the highest priority. However, today, for the first time, a small business can compete with large enterprise on a plain level field with voice communication tools as powerful as those of the enterprise, but with the flexibility and agility of a small business.
After investing the time to choose the right VoIP phone systems and do proper initial setup and optimization, the returns can be far greater than the investment, and the positioning of the business can leap to new heights.

Best IP PBX for Small Business – Online Presentation

“The capital cost of implementing the proposed solution was half the price of purchasing a traditional solution yet by using IP telephony all the functionality is still provided. While the cost savings are impressive, what is really great about this solution is the flexibility; it does everything and much more than the competitors – with no hidden costs.”
