It’s important to stay up to date on the latest technologies, but it’s not always obvious when to upgrade your phone system.
Phone technology has come a long way, and there are now more features and better functionality than ever before. But is staying up to date with the latest technology worth the investment? Here at Edgetronix, we believe it is, but there are many other reasons to upgrade as well. In our last blog, we went over a few signs that it’s time to upgrade your business’s telephone system. Today, we’ll be finishing up this list and this series with these last few signs:
Sign #4. You’ve outgrown your phone system’s capacity.
A traditional phone system’s capacity is only so big. There are only so many phone lines and devices, including phones and fax machines, that it can handle. While it’s possible to purchase additional ports for your system, that’s really just a stop-gap solution, and if you keep growing, you’ll only need to keep purchasing more. Investing in a VoIP system may be a more expensive solution for the time being, but it’s much easier and more cost effective to scale as you continue to grow. No matter how fast you grow, you can rest assured that your VoIP system has what it takes to keep up.
Sign #5. You are planning to move to a new location.
When you are in the midst of moving to a new location, it’s an ideal time to upgrade to a VoIP system. It might even save you money in the long run. Many companies are surprised to learn that the entire process, from uninstalling the system at the old office to installing the system at the new office, is not cheap. In fact, the costs of simply transporting your existing phone system could cost as much as 40 percent of what you would pay for a new phone system. If you consider the fact that you will eventually need to replace your traditional phone system anyway, why not save yourself that added cost by doing it during your move?
Sign #6. You are adding a new location.
Adding a new location may not seem like a good enough reason to upgrade your phone system, but it’s actually an ideal time to do so. There are predictions that, by the year 2027, VoIP users will top 20 million. VoIP is the future, and you’re going to need to upgrade one day anyway. It makes no sense to invest in outdated technology for your new office, and if you’re utilizing a VoIP system there, it’s smart to do so across your existing locations as well. Having one VoIP system across all of your locations makes it possible to streamline your communication process.
