The cloud telephone system gives you all the benefits and features of a business telephone system without initial financial outlay. The physical telephone system is maintained by your telecommunications provider in the data center and the only hardware you see is the telephone you will use on your desk.
How is the cloud system maintained?
The responsibility for maintaining and updating software remains with the provider so that you don't have to worry if there is a problem, especially if your telecommunications provider is on the other side of the country. One of the biggest advantages of having a cloud phone system is that you can use your telephone outside the office but still have access to all the features that you are accustomed to.
So if for some reason staff members cannot come to the office, they can work from home with the same phone and features they have if they sit in the office. Cloud Phone System is the ideal solution for field sales operations because they can work from any location with an internet connection and send offers or generate appointments.
How much does the Cloud Solution cost?
The cloud phone system is just a standard business telecommunications solution but is hosted with your telecommunications provider, but the difference is you rent equipment instead of buying it and you only pay for service packages as long as you use them (similar to hosting packages).
Configuring a new phone to your cloud telephone system is a leaner process. Your telecommunications provider can program the telephone in front of your telephone system to make sure the phone is functioning properly and then send the phone to you which is ready to use right out of the box. Eliminating the need for engineers to visit your place and incur outgoing call costs.
