Phone systems can provide companies with the proper tools to boost efficiency while lowering expenses. By utilizing phone systems, calls can be transferred with ease allowing customers the proper service while cutting the cost of multiple single lines. Also, individual phones within the phone system possess customizable features to suit your company needs.
The main decision for phone systems formerly was between a PBX (Private Branch Exchange) and a KSU (Key Service Unit), but now another option is VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Each option boasts its own pros and cons, but it essentially comes down to what you are looking for in a phone system. The PBX system is comparable to the tried and true version of phone systems. Based on a land line with several connections, the PBX system proves reliable but is sometimes costly. KSUs are similar to a smaller scale PBX system, still providing multiple lines, but less expensive and smaller in physical size. A VoIP system utilizes the internet for calls, thus slightly cutting costs of a phone bill and providing faster, clearer connections. In addition, a VoIP system is easier to transfer in the case of a business changing locations due to its internet base. However, with advancing technologies, these phone systems are beginning to become integrated to provide highlights from each system in one.
With cost being an issue, refurbished equipment may be a great option. Phone systems consist of numerous parts (base unit, individual phones, add-ons, etc) and often these products are available as new or refurbished. Differences in pricing can vary greatly or slightly, but when there is a large difference, going for the refurbished product is worth the try. Often with refurbished products, there is a warranty or return period policy which will allow you to find out if you like it or not.
As a growing or an established business, business phones and voicemail systems can be a vital part to your success. Finding phone systems that match company demands can result in the greatest advantage. Although the process may take some time, it is a decision that can yield great benefits. We at StartechTel.com, the leading supplier of new and refurbished business phones, equipment and accessories, are happy to assist you with any questions or concerns involving phone systems and equipment.
