The VoIP specialists at Republic Voice & Data have come up with a three-step process below to help you find the best replacement option for your business.
Step 1: List out your requirements
Examine your business needs and list out the requirements that must be met by the business phone system you are switching to.
Step 2: Plan your budget
How much capital expenditure are you planning to spend? Do you want to maintain your PBX or go to the Cloud? Do you want to have custom applications? Do you have on-site IT staff? All of these are questions you must answer to ensure you are shopping for the best phone system that fits all the needs of your business (as well as your budget).
Step 3: Choose your ideal type of VoIP system
Usually, for small to medium-sized businesses with a limited budget, a hosted VoIP system would be ideal as the service provider will provide most of the maintenance, which means you don’t need to have an on-site IT staff. Additionally, only a limited amount of VoIP hardware is required to get your system up and running, therefore, the upfront costs are relatively low.
