Future proofing your business

If you are a business with more than one line into your building you will likely have a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) which will be managed by either an employee or a subcontractor. You will probably be paying a third-party to maintain it and in the event that you outgrow your system or want new features, you have to pay for the upgrade or throw it away and buy a new one resulting in high costs to your business.

These systems have been at the heart of business communications for decades and were designed to enable office-based employees to communicate with each other and the outside world, but with the increase in employees being more mobile and businesses having multiple sites the traditional phone system is no longer a match for the modern business.

With the introduction of social media, communication is now a critical enabler of success making an effective, flexible, high-performance communications system critical to every business.

So you may ask “what is the next step in communications?” well I will tell you.

We are now living in the age of cloud-based communication.
