Phone systems to suit every business
Why a business telephone system is important
Although we operate in a world of e-commerce and webchat, business telephone systems still play a vital part in the day-to-day, customer service element. If you want your potential customers and clients to contact you, you need to give them every opportunity to reach you – this typically means displaying a business landline number on your website, social media and marketing material.
You may think that you’ll be saving money and time by just running off mobiles, but here’s why you shouldn’t.
As an SME, you want ensure you’re doing everything you can to make your business seem approachable and contactable. By displaying a mobile number you could be deterring customers from contacting you. From a consumers perspective, a business that operates from a mobile number can seem unestablished or unorganised. Of course this isn’t always the case, an organisation can still be successful without a business phone line – but from our experience we find organisations that have a professional phone system implemented seem more reachable and can communicate with customers more effectively.
The evolution of business phone systems
Business phone systems have advanced a long way in the past decade. Advancements in VoIP and cloud technology have opened up a number of cost-effective solutions for small businesses. The modern phone system is digital, quicker and more secure. Whilst there are still businesses out there on analogue ISDN phone lines, the inevitable switch off of the ISDN in 2025 means businesses will need to move onto a SIP or VoIP solution.
Helping you select the right Business Telephone system
There’s a number of things to consider when choosing a telephone system for your business. Key factors such as growth plans, work flexibility and office setup can play a big part in the decision making process. As with all of our customer solutions, we look at the long term. We look at providing a business telephone system that’s future-proof – not old technology that is going to become costly for your business or cause problems.
Whilst we can support traditional telephony solutions, we always recommend cloud-based telephony as this offers far more features and scalability at a more affordable rate.
Cloud-based / Hosted Telephony systems
What is Cloud-based / Hosted telephony?
To put it simply, cloud-based phone systems are hosted in the cloud rather than in your premise. It uses Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to transmit data, this simply means all phone calls are placed over the internet through a data connection rather than traditional infrastructure, perfect for remote working and online collaboration.
With better quality data connections available, VOIP and cloud-based technology is becoming increasingly more popular for businesses who are looking for a reliable, cost-effective and flexible telephone solution.
There’s a range of hosted telephony solutions available, choosing the right one for your business can be difficult, since they all have slightly different integrations and features. Excalibur can help explain the options available to your business at no cost.
What are the benefits?
One of the main benefits of cloud-based phones is the ability to make and receive a call from anywhere with an internet connection. Whether you’re working from home or on the road, cloud-based applications can be used on multiple devices, meaning your staff won’t miss a call.
With cloud-based communications, your staff and customers benefit from a seamless calling experience. Exceptionally clear audio quality, minimised call dropping and unified communications not only improves staff productivity but also improves general customer satisfaction.
Your organisation’s entire communications can be managed easily through a simple to use interface. Cloud-based solutions are highly scalable – changes can be made to multiple sites, countries and individual users through one portal.
