Phone Systems for the Modern Business
Have you ever needed to take a business phone call on the road?
Or, unfortunately, had a terminated employee take contact information with them on their personal phone?
When you have a traditional, business phone system, these are common scenarios. You are limited by the phone on your desk, but business doesn’t only happen sitting at your desk. Your employees are constantly on the go, and customers expect to reach you no matter where you are.
Gone are the days, you check your voicemail on a pay phone when out and about. Either your team is making phone calls from their personal phone or they are unreachable. Your business needs more options than the pay phone on the corner and the immovable office phone at your desk.
You need your office phone to fit your business.

How many of us hand out our personal cell phone number to customers, because your office phone is chained to your desk?
A cloud communications solution will allow you to be constantly connected to your office phone number. There’s no more need to give your customer your personal number or carry a personal and work cell phone. The one device in your pocket can be your office phone.
Today we live in a connected world. You and your employees are probably already using your cell phone for work, so why not have it be part of your business phone system instead?
With cloud communications solutions, you are given more flexibility while still professionally using the office phone number. Increase productivity and accountability with features like texting, video meetings and management monitoring.
So, How Does Cloud Communications Work?
Cloud communications use Voice over IP, or VoIP, and hosted PBX technology to streamline your business phone system. The internet, which you already utilize every day, becomes your phone lines.
While traditional, on-premise phones limits users to their desks and is reliant on the phone lines working, Hosted PBX is managed off-site in the cloud. Being able to switch to internet or data eliminates the worry for service to be disrupted; due to a strong thunderstorm or phone lines being cut because of construction, helping your business maintain continuity. With cloud communications, your phone number is always available.
