When looking for a new phone system, companies must evaluate their needs along with their corporate structure to determine the best solution. Today, Internet based “cloud” services are a popular trend and offer many valuable business services. However, there are many considerations to be evaluated before making a final decision. In today’s “virtual” cloud-based world, there are many instances when a corporate owned telephone system is not the best solution for companies and a hosted solution provides a better fit.
Today’s Hosted Telephone Services provide businesses and individuals feature rich Voice over Internet (VoIP) services at a very competitive monthly cost, while avoiding the initial capital and on-going maintenance expenses of a company owned telephone system. With a Hosted Voice Solution, businesses outsource their telecommunications services and can provide corporate telephone access to their remote/work at home employees. This allows businesses that are spread across many different geographical locations an easy way to provide and manage a consolidated solution that offers employees the same features and functionality of a dedicated onsite VoIP solution without the initial capital expenditure or the ongoing support costs. Advanced features include:
- User/business specific calling plans
- Voicemail and fax services that integrate with the company email system
- Custom call handling features
- Mobile/Smartphone integration & Find me/Follow me functionality
- Multi-party conferencing
Hosted solutions are especially useful when a company has many home-based employees and they want a unified communications system that provides a single, consistent solution for all employees. An Internet cloud based telephone system provides the features of a dedicated corporate system to geographically dispersed employees. All that is required is a high-speed Internet connection and the company’s employees can access the corporate phone system without requiring a separate connection for their voice services. All corporate communications are handled via their Internet connection.
For those times when a company requires a dedicated phone system but does not have the resources necessary to support a local system or has a distributed workforce, cloud based hosted telephone services provide businesses the features and functionality previously only available from an on-premise, company owned phone system. This is available today without the initial capital cost of a dedicated phone system or the added internal support requirements necessary to manage a corporate phone system. Hosted services are generally offered in a variety of service packages with the features priced and configured according to the specific needs of the business.
