20 Sep Cloud-based phone systems – its a no brainer
When looking at migrating your legacy on-premise PBX phone system to a cloud voice solution the same questions always arise on this topic, namely, (i) what are the challenges in moving and (ii) is it cost effective?
In short, if you’re getting hit with recurring voice software costs, experiencing downtime on your telephony, or if you’re support costs are rising, migrating your legacy voice system to the cloud will probably be a no brainer for your business.
Integrating your voice, video, messaging, meetings and call centre solutions for your workforce into a single comms platform in the cloud will make your business run far smoother than the systems of yesteryear. Here are a just a few of the benefits:
No new maintenance fees There’s no need to buy lease or pay maintenance fees on a complex PBX system at your office. A hosted PBX solution is delivered right over your Internet connection.
Cost Savings Installing a cloud-based system can save businesses around 50% off phone bills and up to 90% off what it would cost to invest in a traditional PBX system.
Scalability Order as many extensions as you need now and add more extensions at any time.
Each company has its own challenges but there are some common pitfalls to watch out for:
Connectivity Is everything! Your company infrastructure is one of the most key elements of success when moving to cloud so it’s important that this is solid.
Testing We love testing here at Mollis and suggest testing early, then at every stage before going live and please don’t overlook testing your WIFI. Sounds simple but it’s a common theme, keep in mind that as your workforce becomes increasingly mobile and have less dependence on desk phones, your WIFI connectivity needs to be robust.
Adopting the cloud is easy, it really doesn’t need to be complicated. The benefits of reduced cost and complexity, couple with increased flexibility and scalability are now too difficult to ignore.
