With traditional jobs at large corporations few and far between in this sour economy, many enterprising Americans are looking to entrepreneurship to pay their bills. Some of America’s strongest and largest companies began as small businesses during serious recessions: Apple Inc., for example, opened up its doors in the dark days of 1976 with a handmade wooden computer lacking a screen or keyboard . Despite many ups and downs in the last thirty years, Apple Inc fought back and is now a leading provider of consumer electronics.
You too might carry a torch in your heart for the Fortune 500 recognition? Then you will need to run a tight ship, saving costs wherever possible. To some people saving money means cutting back on quality. Luckily, you can have your cake and eat it, too, with Business VOIP Systems. Business VoIP Systems can save you up to 50 to 85 % monthly over a traditional PBX system, without sacrificing on any features or quality.
In truth, the functions which the ‘old school’ PBX systems offer not only cost more, but don’t live up to what business voip systems can offer. Many small businesses either cannot afford or do not wish to operate out of a single office. Some entrepreneurs rely on partners that operate in different states or even different nations. On another note, some businesses require the owner to constantly be on the move and not sitting in one location. A traditional PBX system simply cannot address the needs of certain business owners.
With hosted PBX, you are not forced to sit at one central location and lost out on prospective business when you are not sitting at that one central office. Prospective clients can call just one number for your office and get redirected to different states, nations or even a cellphone at no additional cost (because hosted PBX operates over the internet) while still under the impression they are calling a single office.
Ever wish you could switch your client call to a cellphone midway through an important call to get where you need to be next? Just ‘flip’ the call and you can walk out of the office, finishing your call on your personal cell phone.
If you’re not sure where you’ll be during the day, A Business VoIP PBX has the option of forwarding all calls to a bunch of different numbers(and your prospective client won’t even have an inking).
Don’t you hate calling a traditional PBX system and listening to a massive list of options in order to get to the person you want to talk to? With Business VoIP Systems, your prospective clients can reach you more easily with the dial by name directory feature, which allows a caller to simply dial the numbers that correspond to the letters in the last name of the person they are trying to reach.
In these tough times, only the leanest and fittest small businesses will survive. It’s important to take a short cut if one is available- no use slogging away if all you’re gonna get is higher bills.
