What Kind of Phone System Do I Need?

In a world of an ever-changing technological landscape, it can be hard to keep up with changes in the industry and understand how they may apply to you and your business. Here is a business telephone blog post which reviews all of our business phone options and breaks down the different types and implementations.

Here is a quick breakdown:

Wired/Traditional Business Phone Systems

Extremely reliable and time tested. Usually best for medium to large businesses. Can be cost prohibitive for smaller operations.

VOIP Systems

Versatile and customizable. Great option for small to medium businesses. Can have reliability issues if your internet service is not ideal.

Self-Hosted VOIP Systems

Completely customizable and great for technology-savvy businesses. Requires a good deal of technical knowledge as well as special hardware and maintenance.

Cloud-based VOIP Systems

No hardware required at an affordable price. There is some loss of customizability and the system reliability is completely in the hands of your provider. A cost effective option for someone on a tight budget.

Virtual Business Phone Systems

An option for businesses with employees constantly on the move that need to answer business line calls. Calls get forwarded to personal cell phones or hardlines.

Brands & Pricing

We are an exclusive provider of world-class Toshiba phone systems. Our service and installations come with a 2-year parts and labor warranty and our personal promise that is anything goes wrong, we will work with you to make it right. Pricing varies dramatically

Pricing varies dramatically depending on the size and needs of your business. Our cloud-based phone services offer the best price for small businesses and startups while our more complex and customizable VOIP and wired systems are preferred by larger enterprises.

How Long Will My Installation Take?

Installation times vary. For small installations, like a small business that only needs a few phones installed, we are often in and out in under 3 hours. Typical installations take about a day, while large commercial installations with dozens of lines, special hardware requirements, and customization can take several days.
