WHAT IS HOSTED PHONE SYSTEM?
- A hosted phone system, which is typically an Internet-based phone system, is one in which the servers and applications are located in a third-party data centre rather than at your location.
- Most mainstream hosted phone systems are now cloud-based, eliminating the need for expensive physical hardware and analogue or ISDN phone lines on-site. Instead, your phone company or VoIP service provider will assist in hosting the phone system.
- Since the hosted phone system is also based on internet connections, some people may find it difficult to distinguish between a hosted phone system and a VoIP phone system.
- To facilitate phone calls, they both use VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. Continue reading to learn the distinction between them.
Cloud-based Hosted Phone Systems
Cloud-based hosted phone systems are also referred to as cloud PBX or virtual PBX. Users now have more options for implementing their phone systems as cloud technology advances. When you choose a hosted PBX system, your company will receive all of the benefits of VoIP while not having to store sensitive data in the firm’s data centres.
Benefits of a Hosted Phone System
How does using a cloud-based phone solution in your office benefit your business? Aside from the obvious benefit of saving thousands of dollars per year by switching to a less expensive and more efficient service provider, there are a slew of other benefits to using hosted phone systems in an office setting.
Setting up a PBX system is child’s play, and in most cases, no professional assistance is required to get started. Because all of your communications will be sent over the internet, no additional cables or hardware are required to get the hosted phone system up and running. Depending on which provider you choose, you can do it all through your web browser or a client application. In the event of a problem, you can simply contact online customer support and receive a prompt and helpful response.
No Extra Hardware
With a virtual PBX system, you won’t have to spend any more money on the hardware needed to make it all work. You can use any of your existing equipment, including traditional desk phones, VoIP-ready devices, mobile devices, laptops, and stationary computers. This not only saves you a lot of money on office supplies, but it also means you can start implementing the new communications system right away!
Splendid Call & Reporting Features
Many hosted service providers now provide unified communication solutions, which means you can benefit from not only cheaper and more efficient audio calls, but also a number of more sophisticated features that traditional phone solutions simply do not support. Some of the most popular are listed below.
- Video Conferencing
- Instant Messaging
- Voicemail to Email Transcription
- CRM Integration
Greater Scalability & Flexibility
Communication requirements can change, particularly for start-up businesses and industries with busy seasons, such as retail, tourism, hospitality, and entertainment. Because most hosted phone services are charged on a per-user, pay-as-you-grow basis, it is easier for these businesses to allocate expenses more effectively. It only takes a day or two to add or remove users.
