Cloud Hosted Phone System

Cloud hosted phone systems have a lower cost up front, but a higher monthly payment than other systems. They are usually an excellent choice for small businesses with 5 or fewer employees at multiple locations, or companies who own or rent their phones and choose to pay for telephone connection services monthly. You may want to choose a cloud hosted phone system if any of the following apply to your business:

  • Start up business
  • Want a low introductory cost
  • May have multiple locations

Premise-Based VOIP System

Premise-based phone systems have a higher up front cost, but they have either small monthly payments, or none at all. They are usually an excellent choice for larger businesses with 5 or more employees at one or multiple locations, or companies who want to own their own phone system. Premise-based systems operate more like traditional PBX systems. You may want to choose a premise-based phone system if any of the following apply to your business:

  • Larger Company
  • Want to own your phone system
  • Have multiple larger locations

Digital Phone System

Digital PBX systems are often used by companies in large, older buildings, such as manufacturing facilities, that have previously used and been wired for digital phone systems. They are optimal for businesses whose critical infrastructure relies on several different options to receive calls. These are traditional-type systems using latest equipment. You may choose a digital phone system if the following apply to your business:

  • Your facilities have old cabling installed and rewiring the facility would be cost prohibitive
  • Remote locations make reliance on internet connection for phones impossible
