The Cloud vs. On-Premises – Which is the Best Option for Your Business?

By Admin

When it comes to choosing a telephony solution for your business, your options fall broadly into two categories. On the one hand you have a traditional on-premises based landline system and, on the other, a cloud-hosted VoIP service.

While some businesses may find a certain comfort in a physical landline system, there really is little comparison between the two. A cloud-based VoIP solution comes with a host of features which raise it head and shoulders above an old-fashioned telephone network.

Cost Savings

With a cloud-based service your business avoids unpredictable and/or spiraling costs associated with making phone calls. Businesses using VoIP phone systems can see savings of up to 70% when compared to a traditional landline.

Unlimited Calling

VoIP calling plans, such as those offered by net2phone, cover 20+ countries, as well as the US and Canada. What’s more, you can make as many calls as you like, international or domestic, and never pay more than your contractually agreed low monthly rate. Easily control your communications budget and avoid any nasty shocks when the phone bill arrives.

Full Support

With everything being handled via the internet, there’s rarely a need to send an engineer to resolve any issues. Most common problems can be handled by one of our expert team, over the phone. The dedicated concierge service is also on hand to guide customers through any aspect of the service.

net2phone handles everything from the cloud, meaning you can concentrate on more important matters.

Plug and Play

Everything supplied by your VoIP provider will normally be plug and play ready. All you do is receive your equipment, plug it in, and you’re ready to make calls. No technical expertise is required, and no engineer need visit to install your system.

The plug and play nature of VoIP systems also make moving premises a breeze, giving you one less thing to worry about.

International Calling Features

Give your business a truly global footprint with fantastic enterprise grade features including virtual numbers – which give you a local presence even in countries where you aren’t physically represented – and unlimited calling. Cut down on the need to for costly business trips with high quality conferencing features.

Mobile Functionality

The modern workforce is a mobile one, with many people spending an increasing amount of time working from home or another non-traditional location. With cloud-based VoIP the office goes with you wherever you end up. All you need is a computer and an internet connection and it’s as if you’re sitting at your desk.

Powerful mobile apps even remove the need to be at a computer. As long as you have a smartphone and a data connection, you’re ready to work, anytime, anywhere.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, the benefits of a cloud-based VoIP telephone system are myriad. From convenience and mobility, to time and cost savings, there really is no good reason not to switch to VoIP. Whether you are a small to medium sized business, or a mega corporation, you can see more business and increased service quality with cloud communications.
