Cloud Phone Systems
Move to the cloud or stay on the ground!
Cloud technology has been a game-changing factor for organizational growth in recent years by primarily eliminating costly upfront investments.
One area in particular has been phone systems. Traditionally, on-premise phone systems were costly in both installation and maintenance. With a cloud-based phone system, your system is securely located at a data center and your vendor takes full responsibility for owning, maintaining and configuring. All you have to do is connect to the internet and you are up and running.

When to invest in the cloud.
All of your IT resources are focused on core business initiatives – and not much else.
Many small businesses don’t have the flexibility to have their IT staff focus on managing a phone system. The cloud can relieve your team of that burden.
You’ve moved critical business applications – like customer relationship management – to the cloud.
The adoption rate of “Software as a Service” is high and growing. If you’ve rolled out customer relationship management and ERP, you can increase the value of your investments by integrating these applications with a cloud phone system.
Your employees are always on the move.
It’s hard enough to work on the go, but without the seamless integration of business applications, collaboration can easily detour into rough terrain. When productivity begins to break down, it’s a good sign it’s time to upgrade.
Your organization is quickly expanding.
You want to take advantage of emerging opportunities, but also need the right people and tools to keep pace. But the tools and applications you need today may change by next month. With a cloud phone system, you can easily add phone systems to new branch offices, while taking advantage of features and capabilities as you need them – with minimal disruption.
You’re trying to allocate funds appropriately.
To keep your business growing, your chief financial officer needs a clear line of sight into future costs. It’s the only way to steer the business. But all of the situations we’ve mentioned here can easily spend the budget. If your spending plans have little flexibility, adding some certainty will help.
You want your technology to work with you, not against you.
Even though the cloud is clearly where businesses are heading, there are still companies out there that are either undecided or flat out refuse to move to the cloud for some reason. And sometimes, those reasons are valid. Whatever their reasons may be, understand that by you investing in the cloud, you will undeniably have a competitive edge.
