Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP): Hosted-PBX for business

Hosted-PBX services are ideal for companies who want to gain control of their voice and data networks—at a price they can afford. With cloud-based Hosted-PBX, you get all the advantages of an advanced call routing system without the burden of managing the system yourself. As a cloud system, the PBX resides offsite, saving you the expense of having to buy and upgrade telecom system hardware. Incoming calls are processed through your Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider and then sent to your company’s phone extensions or routed to the first available person in a department. With a cloud-based system, there are many advantages including: ease of use, scalability for a growing business, and business unification. Traditional PBXs are telephone systems that serve one organization at one location, reside on-premise, and are owned and maintained by the organization. Hosted-PBX technology has not only increased capabilities, but dropped the price of communication services to a point where practically any business can take full advantage of them.

When discussing Hosted-PBX, financial savings is normally the principal advantage mentioned, although, Hosted services have a lot of advantages, specifically low up-front expenses and predictable billing. The ability for institutions to save on both initial capital expenditures and ongoing operating expenses makes Hosted VoIP shine. If you hire more staff, the monthly cost will go up by a fixed amount as voice charges are calculated per telephone, or seat. A company comprising of 20 hosted seats will cost the business 20 times the seat fee. The VoIP provider is responsible for maintenance, configuration, installation, and upgrades of the Hosted-PBX. An increasing number of small to large enterprises are evaluating and executing Hosted VoIP as a method to increase worker productivity and lower significant voice costs. Technology has made it possible for small businesses to obtain these new voice functions that were previously only available to larger ones. In the digital age that we live in today, it could be the right time to evaluate your company’s voice needs and see how the Hosted-PBX, and all its features, can boost your business productivity while saving money.
