Frequently Asked Questions - Business Telephone Systems

As with all business plans you need to give yourself as much information as possible. Below you’ll find a list of some of the more FAQs to help you decide which phone system is the right one for you. Or if you prefer, you can fill in the quote form. Or complete a contact form and we’ll call you back. Then talk through all the options with you. It really is that simple.

The best time to be thinking about buying or upgrading your telephone system is if you are planning to move office or are setting up a new one. Sometimes it can be that you need to add more external lines or phones for your business. This can be due to an expansion in your company and your current system is getting a bit dated.

The technology of telephony is always changing. Indeed, right now there is a big shift taking place as traditional analogue and ISDN services are being phased out. Thus, making way for new IP telephony such as VoIP. Today, most people opt for a VoIP phone system. They tend to be the most cost-effective and flexible option. Which is ideal for small businesses.

This will all depend on what you want from your telephone system. The best place to start is to understand how you want to promote your business to incoming callers. Also, how you would like your phone system to handle incoming telephone calls. Other things to consider would be how you integrate your mobile workforce or CRM systems into the phone system. Finally, what level of administrative control do you want, along with new features such as telephone call recording, etc?

Traditional or premise-based phone systems are systems where the server is at your business premises. Nowadays you would always consider VoIP for on-premise systems using SIP lines. As opposed to the older options of ISDN and analogue lines, as these are being switched off by 2025. Another option would be a personal cloud-based phone system. In this scenario, you would look to deploy a phone system as an application on your servers, possibly using VM Ware or Hyper V.
VoIP just means phone systems that work via the internet, rather than relying on wires. With a cloud-based hosted VoIP telephone system, we use the internet to connect all your extensions to each other and the public phone network. With a hosted VoIP phone system you would still buy the telephones, setup, and training. But instead of purchasing the phone system processor, you simply pay a monthly rental for ports on the platform.

Yes, you can. A telephone system lease spreads the cost of the equipment out over several months. We offer lease rental plans with monthly costs, as opposed to upfront costs. Sometimes you can even own the system at the end of the rental period if you don’t want to upgrade again at that point.

Yes, all new business phone systems have added functionality to make it easier for you to receive office calls and voice mail messages on your mobile.

This depends on what you have in place right now. However, a good guideline is approximately 4 – 6 weeks. But please note, if you are looking to install your new system into new build premises, it may be worthwhile starting the process much sooner.

This depends on the size of your current system. Then the location of your business and the type of on-site cabling you have. Also, the resilience and flexibility you need. We can help you decide once we know a little more about your requirements.
