5 Considerations to Moving Your Business VoIP System

voip systemMoving a business is often a lengthy and complicated process. While VoIP technology certainly means less hardware and cables to move, it still involves some planning and forethought. So the big question is : to take the VoIP System along or start over at the new address?

Take It or Leave It : Moving Your Business VoIP System from Ziff Davis addresses that question and offers five considerations to take into account when making the decision.

1. Circumstances Around Your Move

Take the VoIP System if : The move is well organized or planned in advance. The business is being merged or relocated to somewhere without a VoIP System.

Leave the VoIP System if : The move is spur-of-the-moment or disorganized. The business is being merged somewhere with a better system.

2. Type of Environment

Take the VoIP System if : The new environment is similar or smaller than the current.

Leave the VoIP System if : The new environment is a shared space or an expanded space.

3. Your Phone System

Take the VoIP System if : You are still satisfied with your system and it is still a newer system. The system includes better applications than the competition.

Leave the VoIP System if : You are no longer satisfied with the system or have been wanting to change or expand. The system does not include the newest applications and capabilities.

4. Changing Communications Needs

Take the VoIP System if : The current system will continue to serve you for the next several years; if it is flexible and expandable.

Leave the VoIP System if : The move is about making change or growing and expanding.

5. What VoIP Vendors Can Offer

Take the VoIP System if : Your VoIP Provider offers options and deals to migrate the system to your new location.

Leave the VoIP System if : Other VoIP Providers are offering something more lucrative.

3 Ways Hosted VoIP Helps Businesses Grow

voip growthAnyone that has a hosted VoIP system will be quick to spurt its many benefits and advantages. At the top of the list is how easy it is to grow with a hosted solution.

First, a hosted VoIP system makes it easy to open new locations or offices. The ability to use the same central telephony system in any number of new branches means cost savings and peace-of-mind. Opening new offices becomes inexpensive and easy with hosted VoIP.

Second, work can be outsourced or delegated to work-at-home employees. A hosted VoIP system brings the office to the worker, wherever they may be. This makes hiring new employees or outsourcing temporary work incredibly easy and inexpensive. It also fixes any space issues at the office. Applications like gloCOM bring the capability of an entire office to your desktop, wherever you are.

Finally, hosted VoIP allows for growth even on a tight budget. Certainly less costly than legacy telephony, and more economical than premise-based VoIP, hosted VoIP generally only requires monthly expenditures without up-front investments or ongoing maintenance costs. Companies with hosted VoIP can expand without breaking the budget.
