Choosing a new telephone system can be a bit of a minefield! When comparing Cloud based telephone systems against onsite deployments, you’ll find various pros and cons for both. If you’ve never considered a cloud based telephone system before, here are a few reasons it could be the right choice for your business!


Over 4 million people regularly work from home, and this number is increasing year on year. Technology has made this really easy. With a cloud based system such as 8x8’s Virtual Office, a homeworker can receive their calls to their home landline or mobile device or they can be provided with a deskphone to connect to an Ethernet connection. This way they get all the features of the telephone system whilst away from the office. If desk space is at a premium at home, why not use a softphone on your laptop?


Hotdesking can cut the costs of running an office by up to 30%. Many workers only need to use a desk while they pop into the office between appointments, so why use up valuable workspace when a more flexible approach can be used. A cloud based system makes hotdesking really simple – wherever the user goes, they take their extension number with them, even if they’re working in another office. No more ringing round trying to find out what extension Bob is on today – he’s on his own extension number and easily contactable. Time to think outside the box when planning your new system.
