Many businesses get bombarded with calls from communication companies hoping to win their business, but what is the cost of switching to a new provider? If your business is considering implementing a cloud-based phone system, then there are several factors to consider.

LEVERAGE EXISTING INVESTMENTS. Unfortunately, many communication providers will not be able to utilize your existing systems. This means all your existing phones and equipment become obsolete. Trashing your equipment is certainly a disappointment when your business spent valuable time learning the system and training employees, in addition to losing your investment on the equipment.

DISRUPTION IN RE-TRAINING. Introducing a completely new system also means employees must be retrained to learn the new software and hardware, which can cause disruptions for your business. For any business, having open lines of communication is essential, and breaking that connection can lead to loss of business as well as frustrated employees.

COST SAVINGS. While there is no doubt moving to a voice over IP solution can have lucrauve benefits to your bottom line, the costs of migrating can mount if gone unchecked. In addition to new hardware and training costs, you take away attention from the core of your business, and can potentially lose sales opportunities or overlook customer support issues as attention is focused elsewhere.
