There are a number of key advantages to using a hosted pbx versus traditional telephone service or purchasing an office telephone system.
Cost savings – You do not need to make a large upfront investment by purchasing an office telephone system and there is no need to maintain it. With a Hosted PBX solution the office telephone system is operated by your provider.
Geographical Flexibility – Employees can work from anywhere when your office phone system is virtual. You can have employees working from home, other offices, mobile phones, and even overseas.
Local Presence – Hosted PBX systems allow you to get local virtual numbers in cities where you are not physically located which allows you to create a virtual presence or open a virtual office in Athens or the UK.
Credibility – For small businesses a virtual system can give them instant credibility by presenting their customers with a professional sounding telephone solution. Traditional telephone systems are generally cost prohibitive for smaller organizations.
Scalability – Traditional phone systems are limited by how many users they can handle as well as how many lines you have purchased from your local telephone provider. Our Hosted PBX systems offer enterprise class features (i.e. Interactive Voice Recording, voicemail to email, call queues, ring groups and time conditions) that are offered free of charge.
Quick Setup – A Hosted PBX solution can have you up and running very quickly compared to a traditional telephone system.
Cheaper Calls – Our Hosted PBX is based on VoIP (Voice over IP) and as a result, our customers can benefit from Ultra low-rate International calls compared to the rest Telephone Operators.
A short example
A company employee or manager travels abroad frequently. Instead of paying hundreds of Euros on mobile roaming, he can receive all company calls on his mobile (using internet access and a SIP client) or on his laptop using a VoIP Software phone.
Another example is a small company who is placed in 2-3 small offices around Cyprus (or even abroad). If this company would use a traditional PBX system, it would require a PBX at each location meaning, high Setup Fees, high monthly Line Rental fees and monthly call costs between them not taking into consideration the maintenance of those PBX systems. With the Hosted PBX solution, the company benefits from Low setup and running fees as well as from free calls between the offices.
