Cloud-Based Telephone Solutions

Cloud-based or network-based services are similar concepts to most of us. Think of Internet TV instead of a VCR or DVR… sharing digital photos online instead of on DVDs or glossy prints… voicemail instead of an answering machine.

Why not apply the same concept, with all its benefits, to your business phone system?

A cloud-based telephone solution delivers the benefits of modern IP business communications without requiring you to buy, install, or maintain an on-site communications server (PBX). Phone service is said to be offered from the cloud, referring to the cloud-like shape often used to represent a service provider’s IP network.

The central intelligence of the phone system resides in a service provider’s secure data center. All you need to have on site are the end user devices (such as telephones and attendant consoles) and the local network gear to connect those devices to the provider’s IP network.

Whether you want to conserve capital, enjoy complete phone system flexibility, or simply free your IT talent for better things than running the office phone system, a cloud-based telephone solution can be very liberating—and surprisingly affordable.

Your users can program their own phone features, including buttons, speed dial numbers, voicemail forwarding and more, just as they would if the server were in your office. But unlike an on-site server, you don’t have to worry about system hosting, power protection, performance, maintenance, or upgrades.

Moves and changes are all done for you, and you always benefit from the latest software and features. Your facilities manager or network administrator gets relevant reports about system configuration, management, and performance.
