Here at P2 Communications Management (P2CM), we want nothing but the best for our clients when it comes to deciding technology that will affect your business. Communication is the heartbeat of your business and choosing a technology that can improve your performance is a critical decision. So for those small businesses that have a limited IT budget and don't want to compromise their own appearance and overall image by selecting a poor quality phone system, then you must seriously consider a Hosted VoIP solution. P2CM is here to assist with selecting the right Hosted VoIP provider for your business!
Why a Hosted VoIP System?
Moving to a Hosted VoIP System instead of a premise based phone system could save you a significant amount of money. The system is installed and managed by the Hosted VoIP provider at a secure Data Center facility and the features are typically delivered to you via a Private or Public IP connection. The providers that offer the complete package will also include the IP phones as part of the offering. Typically, we see significant savings in the areas of IT infrastructure & personnel (i.e. less manpower to run and maintain a premise based PBX phone system), technical trouble shooting is typically taken care of remotely (no need to roll a truck and a tech on-site) and telephone bills are typically lowered to include unlimited calling plans at flat rated offerings for predictable cost management.
The right solution, from the right providers at the right price.
Business branches can be opened in any location, without creating any additional physical infrastructure. Additionally, numerous extensions can be maintained from an existing telephone connection and a business can be expanded easily without making any additional investments. Most Hosted VoIP solutions are integrated with an array of stylish call handling features like auto attendant, call conferencing, voicemail, voice to email, fax to email, caller ID, call forwarding and much more. Incoming calls are received by the auto attendant with appropriate salutation messages, and to connect calls to the exact extensions, callers are provided with a menu of options such as dial-by-name, dial-by-extension and so on.
Here are some additional advantages of the Hosted VoIP model. The combined set of benefits lead us to conclude that Hosted VoIP is an ideal solution for businesses looking to move beyond conventional telephony.
Benefits of Hosted VoIP
Only a low cost monthly expense for IP-enabled telephones to support VoIP service and features. Minimal capital expense is required and you are not locked into an asset with a long depreciation cycle.
Ideal For Multiple Locations
Hosted VoIP is very flexible for supporting branch offices, remote workers, and new sites as the business expands. All that is needed is to add handsets and solid internet connectivity when setting up a new office or adding more locations to your network.
Hosted VoIP solutions support the 24/7, mobile, on the road realities of today's business world. Business continuity is a core element of Hosted VoIP, as the network services are housed in rock solid data centers. This also includes disaster recovery, a capability that no premises–based system can provide. In the event of a natural disaster or malicious network attacks, your messages and directories are never lost, and the business can carry on under all conditions.
Regardless of how busy your phone lines get, Hosted VoIP always works. Your customers and employees will always be able to get dial tone, and they'll never get a busy signal, even during peak periods.
VoIP is still a new technology, and we are just beginning to see what is possible. With Hosted VoIP, you will always have the latest features and services, and will never need to worry about implementing them with your telephone system. For the first time, businesses have a solution not only to match what bigger competitors can do today, but to keep pace as technology advances.
