For many businesses, telecommunications is seemingly a necessary evil – you need to be able to communicate with potential customers and suppliers, but you’re also spending a chunk of your capital on it. But your telephony costs can be cut.
The answer lies within the cloud. While much discussed and much-hyped, in very basic terms, the ‘cloud’ refers to applications delivered over the internet, making things simpler, more convenient and, more importantly, cheaper. An easy way to dramatically cut your telephony costs is to switch to a cloud-based phone system, such as a Virtual PBX. Instead of using a traditional landline, a Virtual PBX delivers your calls over an internet connection (the cloud), and is more affordable with lower rental, call costs and set-up fees.
A Virtual PBX solution delivers all the features of a traditional phone system and gives your business the credibility of a landline number instead of a mobile. Plus, because everything is in the ‘cloud’, your business isn’t limited by geography, allowing for additional numbers in any state to give your business a ‘local’ presence in your desired market.
In the same vein, faxing takes on a whole new level with the cloud with data being transmitted digitally via a VoIP line allowing faxes to be sent directly from your computer and delivered to your email address as a PDF document. Imagine not having to deal with the installation and maintenance costs involved with traditional fax machines. How much better off would your business be?
Telecommunications doesn’t have to be a burden on your business. A cloud-based solution offers the flexibility, features and simplicity that suits your business needs and you could cut up to 60 per cent off your telephony costs.
