It’s only been three months since the start of 2015 and just like before, there will be a myriad number of business owners who would have maintained their legacy PBX systems in order to carry out the operational requirements of their organization.

However, while the supremacy of hosted PBX systems are well known, given below are some factors that will allow entrepreneurs and individuals with sharp business acumen to easily come to the decision whether or not they should upgrade their existing communicationsetup.

1. The amount of money that goes in to your legacy phone systems.

 

The Amount Of Money That Goes In To Your Legacy Phone Systems

 

Given below are some key points which break down the cost lineup of their communication setup.

  • ISDN rental fee
  • The cost of adding capacity when business spikes
  • Support and maintenance costs
  • Costs of call-forwarding to remote workers

While this is just the tip of the iceberg, it should easily give you a vivid overview of how much your existing system is costing your business. It is safe to assume that the aforementioned cost factors are a sufficient reminder that you can switch to a much better alternative like hosted PBX systems.

2. Time management

If a communication setup is not a flexible one, then it will cause a plethora of problems for employees and business owners. Like the popular adage, ‘Time is money,’ similarly, time conversation and management is equally important for the growth and profitability of an organization. In a nutshell, any system that uses more time than it saves may be directly affecting the profitability of the business. There are several examples that can be used to illustrate time management.

The time spent taking messages or redirecting calls for employees who are based at offsite locations can directly affect the efficiency and workflow of the business.

3. Growth limitations

One of the biggest drawbacks of using an ISDN setup is its inflexible nature. Due to this attribute, it can severely inhibit businesses looking to become more agile, mobile and downright flexible. It also ends up limiting those businesses who want to adjust their communications requirement in order to balance out the amount of equipment that is present at on-site locations as well as the amount of frequency that the business is undertaking on a daily basis.

A far better alternative is SIP Trunking, which allows businesses to:

  • Improve communications internally and externally
  • Make the business flexible by accommodating connections that the business needs without exceeding the requirements. Exceeding requirements will most definitely have dire consequences on the overall profitability of the organization
  • Easily scale communications to support business growth or seasonal peaks in demand

Using the aforementioned factors, you will easily be able to deduce whether or not your business requires to be upgraded to a better functioning setup.

While the most prudent move for the business owner would be to immediately jump forward and ask the service provider to remove the obsolete equipment in place of a new and improved one, business owners will always have their doubts whenever they want to make a sizable investment.
