Owning Versus Hosting VoIP Phone Solutions

in Voip

VoIP Phone Systems have a proven track record and have now reached mass market penetration. They have almost revolutionized the business phone solutions & business can either host a VoIP solution or own it. Therefore, it becomes very important to know how to choose from ‘hosted VoIP solutions' and those falling under the heading of ‘Owning VoIP solutions'. Both have competitive points and we'll review those points in the next paragraphs.

Before reviewing both these options one by one, it is important to know about the main factors that guide us making the right choices. All businesses don't follow the same business standards hence business solutions are different for different businesses. Unique business needs and affordability are the two main factors that define what business solution you will avail.

Owning VoIP Phone Systems will charge you high costs in terms of upfront fees, equipment and installation. Then you will have to maintain this installation for the smooth continuity of the VoIP processes to avoid any hindrances in your business communication activities. This maintenance is done either by hired staff or by hiring some vendor. Selecting a telecommunication expert, a VoIP vendor, an IP phone and then designing call routing for a business are the main steps involved in going for an ‘owning VoIP phone solution' option. The next step is the most important one and is about developing a plan that defines how to implement all four steps and then maintain the infrastructure.

On the other hand, going for a hosted VoIP solution involves almost all the same steps except the changed role of the VoIP vendor who now acts as a team player for installation, providing support for ongoing business activities and designing a plan to maintain these activities in a smooth way so that there is no disruption in service.

When compared to an owning option, hosted VoIP option is very much cost effective. It saves your equipment and installment charges. VoIP Phone Systems are called the future of business communications and using them in the right direction is the key to a successful business. Go fo VoIP Phone Systems fo better Solution of Communication.
