VoIP hosted systems require limited physical equipment, usually just a high-quality router device. IP-type telephones are highly recommended, but not required.
The financial savings of switching from a traditional system to a hosted VoIP system are substantial. Additionally, hosted systems require low capital requirements, as they are able to utilize most existing data networks.
Other additional benefits of switching to a hosted system includes: standard-based equipment; combined voice, data and video; one single provider with one number; greatly simplifies physical moves; additions and changes; predictable monthly invoices; greater flexibility to accommodate company changes; professional voice infrastructure; end-user control; disaster recovery; cohesive services across a number of company locations; remote user support; advanced features; mobile phone integration; and a unified communications plan.
With a low risk of obsolescence, hosted VoIP allows organizations to grow their technologies or reduce them during tough economic times. Consolidating locations has never been easier!
