Support and maintenance for Traditional Business Phone Systems is rapidly fading. This is just one reason that you should consider leaving your Traditional Business Phone System behind. The question, however, is what technology improves upon traditional systems? One of the most popular solutions is SIP Trunking. Here’s why:
SIP Trunking can help save your business as much as 40-50% off of your monthly business phone bills. It does this by offering benefits such as lower maintenance fees, scalability, and no long-distance calling. SIP Trunking also makes it easier for multi-site offices to operate under one, unified phone system. Trying to achieve these benefits with a Traditional Business Phone System is not only impractical but also costly.
Less to Manage and Maintain
As mentioned above, SIP Trunking offers less maintenance. It is also less to manage because SIP Trunks do not need complicated on-site hardware. This is because they are cloud-based and don’t have as high a likelihood of requiring maintenance. Furthermore, if you still have a traditional system you may find that if it breaks, you’ll have a difficult time finding a technician who still works on it. Additionally, parts for traditional systems are increasingly hard to come by.
SIP Trunking offers easy scalability. You will only need to pay for what you currently use. Traditional systems require you to purchase channels in blocks. It is also difficult to add lines to traditional systems because you have to physically install them. If you want to add more lines to a SIP Trunking solution, it only necessitates a few clicks on your computer.
SIP Trunking is designed to help you in the event of a disaster. If your internet has an issue or you suffer a power outage, you can set your system up to automatically direct calls to alternate sites or devices. This is a great way to ensure that you can still communicate.
