Can My Business Phone System Scale With Me As I Grow?

You’ve worked hard to build your company, and you definitely have plans in place for growth. But when it comes to business phone systems, you know there’s no one size fits all solution. What works well for large-scale companies may not be effective or efficient for small and medium-sized businesses.
Given this fact, you may be wondering how you can make the right decision now for a business phone system that can scale with your company as it grows.

Determine the State of Your Business
A good starting point for deciding which system is best for your organization is to consider how you and your staff use company communication devices.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What is the available/acceptable budget for a business phone system?
  2. Are workers regularly communicating from the field?
  3. What are the most important system features you want/need?
  4. What is the technical availability at your business? Do you have the web bandwidth necessary for hosting a large network? Are you ‘capped’ at a certain amount of phone lines?

You will also want to have at least a basic idea of the expected growth of your business over the next few years.

Consider Advanced Communication Systems

VoIP
Business owners who expect rapid growth and company expansion should consider advanced options such as Voice Over IP – also known as VoIP.

VoIP systems are based on a “pay as you grow” model that enables your business to add new lines and features, and expand on the system’s capability as your needs require. Another benefit of VoIP is that it can easily connect workers in the field – avoiding contact delays and prolonging company deadlines.
