Everything You Need To Get Started With A Cloud Phone Solution

It’s a familiar moment of disappointment: opening the package of a new tool or gadget you’ve been anticipating, only to discover it requires that one battery you don’t have on hand, or a cable with a unique connector. Or buying new software only to discover your computer or phone requires a system upgrade it doesn’t have space for.

Don’t put off switching to a hosted cloud phone solution for your business because you’re afraid of what you’ll need to get it set up and running.

No Complicated Installation or Assembly Required

A great advantage of switching to a cloud-based system is that installation is simple. It’s nearly as simple as plugging it in and you’re all set!

The only requirements to setting up your cloud phone system are:

  • Internet access via WiFi modem or wireless router
  • Power Outlets, and
  • Hosted Phones.

You can easily set up and use your hosted phone system without waiting for a technician to complete installation and without purchasing expensive hardware.

Value-Added Extras

If you’re interested in adding value and functionality to your cloud phone system, it’s just as simple and easy to integrate with your:

  • Fax
  • Smartphone, and/or
  • Computer.

Adding these components enables extra features such as voicemail-to-email, fax or integrating with your CRM software.

Because most businesses automatically utilize smartphones and computers already, incorporating extra functionality into your hosted phone solution rarely requires the addition of more equipment. Improving the efficiency and productivity of your business is affordable and easy to manage.

Landline System vs. Cloud Phone System

Landline systems are cumbersome to manage and install. They tend to be costly, requiring more hardware and maintenance, and usually the expertise of qualified technicians. Integrating a landline with existing programs is complex. Adding lines and scaling your system as your business changes and grows can be an expensive and labor-intensive undertaking. Generally speaking, a landline system is limiting.

Cloud phone systems, on the other hand, offer

  • affordable upgrades,
  • instant and seamless scalability,
  • easy-to-use technology and management software, and
  • freedom to adapt to the needs of your growing and changing business.

Why Not Make The Switch?

A cloud-based solution has clear advantages over a landline system.
