Every day, companies across the United States are trying to accomplish the same thing to improve their business. Whether you’re a typical “mom and pop” SMB, a mid-sized business with 250 employees or a Fortune 100 enterprise, you all share the same four core goals. 1) Reduce costs. 2) Increase in revenue. 3) To change the market conditions. Be more flexible and 4) reduce any risk of interruptions in your business model. in short. Every business wants a better way to implement its “business continuity” strategies.
So, how are these different businesses meeting these lofty goals? One of the fastest and easiest ways to deal with all four at the same time is to understand that technology has improved our business … better, and now is the time to accept change.
Today’s (and tomorrow’s) businesses are changing the way they communicate with each other. There are old, expensive models to talk about walking the path of dinosaurs. For those of us who are ready to show our age, you can think of expensive long distance days. Remember when you were asked to use someone’s home or business phone and the person paying the bill always asked the same question, “Are you going a long way?” Thankfully, with the break of the M-Bell in the ‘s decade, competition pushed costs from the usual دور 0.03 per minute, where it was 0.40 per minute.
With the advent of the Internet, and then with email, and then with conference calling and mobile services, the transition came again. Each new technology certainly experienced its own collision on the road, and each took the time for the public to adopt them, but in the end, each new step brought us closer to the four goals. Low prices, rising incomes, market easing and risk of downtime.
Today, technology has given us another breakthrough. The past decade has seen the advent of cloud and hosted technologies. Thanks to cloud computing, a slow-moving project has gained access to Usain Bolt’s high-speed sprint in technological advances. As usual, it always takes a few years for the public to understand and as a result, adopt these new technologies, but once that happens, there is no going back. Today we are at the same place and thankfully for those businesses that want to promote their technology or invest in a very impressive catalog of feature sets (which are now standard in most offerings), you The business sustainability goals are ultimately achievable.
If you haven’t already started the transition to replace your old, dilapidated PRI-based phone system, you’re making a huge dent in your business, and this is a critical overkill. ۔ Sure, you see your old phone system as an asset, something you own, something that is solid and yours, but if you think about it, your phone What has the system done for you lately? I’m sure it rings and can call for you, but what if you ring your extension bell anywhere, or you can ring simultaneously with your mobile device? Never miss a call from a prospective customer will greatly help you increase your revenue. Or, consider how much time it takes you each month to understand and correct your paper bill. Are your rates fully billed for each of your calls? Suspicious, but imagine that an online portal tracks every call, on every side (up to extension level), so you not only know who your clients are calling from and who they are talking to But also make sure that every outbound call actually, with the system, includes free of charge? This is both cost reduction and flexibility.
Have you ever had to shut down during bad weather? Your competitor, who already uses hosted VOIP services, did not, because when he got up to look for 6 feet of snow on the ground, he opened his smartphone, logged into the portal, and a With a click of a button, all rooted again. In real time, their calls on predicted emergency over rides! Guess what, they never lost a dollar in current revenue and better yet, they even got your lost income, because they were open for business while your company was closed for business.
The most common misconception when considering Hosted VoIP PBX. Most fear that such a modern unified communication system (and that’s in fact; it’s the cost of your grandfather’s phone system) the way your business is cash-strapped, your business cash-strapped The price is kept the same as the old phone system, until you get something. Like ROI, this is clearly wrong. Today, Hosted VoIP PBX costs nothing less than obvious costs, and is as easy to receive monthly as your old phone bill.
Monthly expenses include your brand new phone system and handsets, all usage (home calls are usually free or unlimited), dozens of features and voicemail options, auto attendants, software upgrades, break fixes, installation, training. , Intuitive administration and user portals (for managing the service, paying your bills, chatting, monitoring extensions and viewing trouble tickets in real time) and a variety of different bells and whistles. Best of all, these systems, usually based on the number of handsets ordered, are usually within 15% of your total current costs!
So, the next time you have a staff or budget meeting and you’re trying to figure out how to (again) target your four main goals – increase revenue, cut costs, become more flexible and Reducing Downtime Risk – I would advise you to take it. A nice hard look at Hosted VoIP PBX as an option. The only downside is that you didn’t hurry.
