Despite the global slowdown is slowly but surely getting better, it is important to stress that this is no time to relax yet. Worldwide, many companies still feel the stress of difficult economic times, and in America there are still closures and liquidation of companies through the recession. Because of this, it is certainly still important to save money wherever possible, but can be difficult to know exactly what to do to save all this money when it seems we already do everything possible to collect a few extra cents.
However, if your company is considering upgrading its phone system, you may be in sight of a great opportunity to save money. An update sounds pretty expensive, right? But it is not necessary – as a matter of fact, an upgrade may actually end up saving money. Today, many companies are turning their attention to the world of phone systems online. That is, a telephone system that uses the Internet rather than traditional telephone line for calls. These calls can go to an online site or a mobile phone or a standard phone call, but with the added advantage that they cost much less.
If your current SIP enabled PBX is easy to install a client that allows you to make voice calls over internet protocol – calls over the Internet – and start saving immediately. Whether you’re calling in the U.S. national level, internationally for the United Kingdom, China or Japan or anywhere else you can imagine, VoIP offers incredible savings. And the best news? If the destination of the call is also a VoIP connection, the call might even be free. Now you can understand why many companies are upgrading to VoIP systems.
The way your phone system is updated is that instead of using all the physical wires and cables associated with the regular phone system, SIP trunking is put in place. This involves the replacement of physical lines with PSTN (public switched telephone network) connectivity through the web. It’s that simple and it means that your company will avoid the costs local PSTN gateways, PRI interfaces and basic rate interfaces.
Why not see what your company can save today by upgrading your phone system? You will be amazed at what other destroyers of the recession are hiding along the line that will help your business overcome this difficult period.
