You always have the option to change contracts with your existing supplier and most companies today can certainly help you to upgrade an existing business phone system. Providing you have multiple phone lines, the suppliers can offer you various ways to upgrade your business phone system and get your office up to speed. If you have a contract in place with another provider it may require you to ‘buy-out’ your existing contract.
When looking to buy or upgrade a business phone system, there are three important questions you need to ask:
- Do I need a full phone system that includes physical telephones or could my business get by with a virtual phone service that uses mobiles instead of traditional office phones?
- If you do need actual telephones, what kind of service do you want? You will need to choose between a traditional service provided by a local or regional phone company or a system that runs over the Internet (Voice over Internet Protocol or VoIP). You can find out more about VoIP vs Traditional lines here.
- If you choose VoIP, do you want to house the VoIP system at your business location or have it hosted by a service provider, and is your broadband up to the job?
