For the small business, it’s a big decision. Stay with your old dial tone system because you know how to work it, or jump aboard the new-age train and get a Hosted VoIP provider with all the new phone system features. The statistics show that most are moving in the direction of the Cloud, but there’s still a big problem. Most companies with a new-age Hosted VoIP system aren’t really utilizing it to its full (or even half of its) potential. You end up with a Cadillac of a phone system that you’re trying to push up a […]

VoIP is all over the place. It’s the hip new technology, so it’s being adopted in a lot of different ways, and nobody’s really doing a good job of explaining those options.
