What is Hosted PBX?
PBX stands for Private Branch Exchange. PBX is hosted in the cloud, offering one platform for on -the- go phone usage for your business. Consequently, it is increasingly popular for this phone service to replace outdated, expensive office phone systems. There are several benefits to switching to PBX, but here are the top five reasons your business should absolutely consider making the move to hosted PBX today.
Hosted PBX is More Cost Effective
For one all- inclusive low monthly price, your office will have a full featured office phone system plus unlimited domestic and international calling. This is much more cost effective than traditional phone plans where your business has to pick and choose the features they need and deal with extra charges each month. Hosted PBX with net2phone offers the phones your business needs to operate, as well as connection to existing compatible phones and mobile phones, so there are no huge initial costs to start up service. Users also never have to worry about additional hidden fees or going over minutes.
Your Team Can Work from Anywhere
With hosted PBX services, your team’s mobile phones can work the exact same way as their in-office phones. This means they can be connected to the office 24/7. This is ideal for teams that have to travel frequently and for those dispersed over different time zones. It allows everyone within the company access to their office line and voicemail box without needing to be physically in the office — a huge bonus for much of today’s workforce as remote working becomes more popular.
PBX is a Scalable Solution
As your business grows, so can your hosted PBX capacity. Allowing you to add phone lines as often as needed for a flat monthly rate, growing businesses enjoy the scalability afforded by hosted PBX. Traditional phone plans typically charge extra fees when lines are added, or force the business into expensive business plans that offer more than your business actually needs. With hosted PBX, your business is only paying for the lines and services it needs in one low monthly rate.
