Some of the top motivations to move to the cloud include reduced capital costs, overall cost savings, faster deployment of services with no disruption to the end-user, increased flexibility and scalability, and access to latest features.
Until recently, many cloud alternatives to on-premises PBX systems have lacked the security, features and functionality required for businesses.
With modern phone systems, features like shared lines, hunt groups, hold, resume, pickup, forward, do not disturb and transfer means you’ll never miss an important call. You can also add in a virtual receptionist to greet inbound callers and personalise voicemail for every user.
As the NBN network is progressively rolled out in Australia, the use of the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and the integrated services digital network (ISDN) will be phased out. All businesses will eventually need to switch their phone systems to a VoIP solution.
There are many benefits when it comes to cloud-based phone systems. These include:
Cloud-based phone systems eliminate the need to pay up-front for heavy and expensive installations.
If you host your phone system in the cloud you will also benefit from lower maintenance and support costs. Typically, you will only be charged on a usage basis, and upgrades are available for little to no cost.
On a cloud-based system, you will receive frequent service updates with no disruption to end-user services.
Having a flexible phone system is critical in this day and age with so many people working from home, or on the road, and using multiple devices. Webex Calling for example, allows you to access the phone system from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
One of the greatest benefits of a cloud-based phone system is that it can be scaled easily as your business grows. It’s very easy to add extensions or direct numbers in just a few clicks.
Because you can connect with customers anytime, anywhere, your customer engagement is likely to improve.
