For small to medium-sized businesses that are experiencing growth, the list of benefits of a Cloud Private Branch (PBX) phone system is long. Fast implementation, lack of maintenance and scalability are just a few perks your business will experience, but one of the main reasons businesses make the switch from on-premises deployments such as PRI lines to a Cloud Private Branch (PBX) phone system is the significant reduction in cost. But what exactly makes a Cloud PBX phone system so much cheaper? This blog will break it all down for you.
Benefits of Cloud Private Branch Exchange (PBX) Phone Systems
Businesses whose hiring requirements fluctuate seasonally have the ability to remove unused lines in months where business is slower, therefore saving money.
In periods where companies are undergoing transitions such as staffing changes or adjustments in the business’ structure (such as acquisitions and mergers), they can be more flexible with costs and communications, making the transition period far more seamless.
IT Staff Productivity
A Cloud PBX phone system requires little to no on-site maintenance as all upgrades are provided by the company, reducing business costs. On-site PRI lines can encounter maintenance issues that can also take up much of the time of IT staff. A Cloud PBX phone system can reduce the workload for IT staff so they can be more productive elsewhere, saving company costs in the long run.
Employee productivity can be increased with a reliable Cloud PBX system because it allows staff to work remotely. Remote working is proven to increase staff productivity because it allows employees to be flexible and work to their own schedule without having to take time off for personal errands. This increased productivity can save business costs.
Businesses have the ability to test new Unified Communications features before implementing them to ensure that they are the right choice for the company and that the business is not wasting money. UCaaS applications also offer a lower cost of implementation and deployment.
Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) has the ability to supply features based on user needs and is significantly scalable when it comes to licensing, so it can be adjusted as your business grows, making it particularly suited to small and medium-sized businesses.
Fewer Unused Resources
Business phone systems on-premises that use Primary Rate Interface circuits to connect to the Public Switched Telephone network require businesses to purchase dedicated capacity, which can result in wasted resources. A cloud PBX provider, however, allows companies to only pay for the features and phone lines they need and use.
VoIP Phones Are Cheap, But Still Provide Amazing Quality
In order to connect your business to Cloud PBX, each of your employees will need a VoIP phone, but these can be very affordable depending on your required features. If you don’t want to commit to buying them outright, you can always lease them for a low monthly fee until you decide to purchase.
With a Cloud PBX system, new capabilities and updates can be added quickly and with ease, giving your business a competitive advantage. Licensing fees, equipment and software upgrades can be avoided. Expansion is simple, one Cloud PBX phone system can grow from 150 staff users to 300 without having to pay for additional features.
