With ISDN becoming a dying technology, many businesses are looking to make the transition to cloud-based telephony. But what does the transition look like? Is it costly? And how easy is it to switch telephone providers?
Firstly, I would like to address some of the reasons many businesses are looking to move to cloud-based telephony.
- Everything (Calls, Maintenance, Installation + Management) is included in a fixed monthly cost.
- Because of this, businesses can now budget their communications. No more unpredictable phone bills.
- There are no upfront costs.
- Each user gets 4,000 minutes to UK mobiles & Landlines per month.
- Use your handset (or softphone) anywhere in the world, at any time.
Changing telephone providers may be easier than you think when it comes to cloud telephony.
Because Cloud Telephones make use of your existing network cabling, there's no need to pay for additional bespoke cabling; or the disruption that comes with it. This also makes it fully scalable. It's easy to remove or add more telephone systems, and there is no need to invest in more telephone lines.
Want to keep the same number? You can. You can even take your handset anywhere in the world with an internet connection and use it just as though it's still in your office.
The costs involved
As I mentioned earlier, there are often no upfront costs associated with cloud telephony. This can save you thousands if you are getting your first telephone system. It can also save you a large amount of money on installation charges.
They are also future-proof technology. They are constantly upgraded for free and will not have to be replaced like traditional handsets do.
