An effective phone system is essential for every successful business and allows you to communicate with new and existing clients. Despite its importance, businesses continue to have problems with their phone systems.
UK companies are losing £11 billion a year due to poor customer service and small to medium businesses in the UK lose on average £90 million per year, due to missed calls during busy periods.

Common Problems Businesses Face
Even just a couple of these issues can significantly impact the operation of your business.
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone systems work by converting audio signals into digital signals. Phone conversations are transformed into digital signals that travel by fibre optic cables over broadband internet.
This type of phone system is often the most cost-efficient option. You will also get all the features offered by a traditional phone system and more.
VoIP systems offer a number of advanced features. These include the ability to make and receive calls as well as listen to your voicemail from your mobile devices like laptops, computers, and tablets.
Getting a new business phone system can be a huge investment. You must consider your future business goals.
The size and spread of your business can determine which type of phone system is your best option. For example, if you plan to grow your business, you need a phone system that offers scalability.
If your business is large or plans to grow, you may need more lines. Planning can save you money overall by helping you choose the best type of phone system for your business plan.
The future of your telephony will very much depend on the type of business you run. An accounting firm might want to interact virtually, while a mechanic working out of a garage may continue more traditional, face to face communication.
