If it was Y2K when you last bought your business phone system then it's time for a new one. Two reasons why:
1. The average life of a phone system is 8 – 12 years. After that, the equipment becomes fail-prone.
2. Innovation and demand have made old phone systems antiquated and new phone systems cheap.
A lot of businesses are in the market for phone systems right now. At the turn of the century, there was a tech bubble. Businesses across the country were growing fast and their IT budgets were amble. Plus, everyone was worried about Y2K. I know I was. As a result, thousands of businesses updated their phone and data equipment. Now, 11 years later, all of those systems are being replaced.
More reasons to buy your new phone system today:
Performance features come standard
If you bought a system 11 years ago, you’ll pay the same or less today. But what you’ll get is more powerful and has way more features. Take voicemail for example. No longer just a box on a computer tower with spinning disks, voicemail empowers unified communications through features, like voicemail-to-email and visual voicemail. Features like find-me-follow-me, remote worker support and application to software tie-ins allow you to get rid of all those phone numbers, and make is easier for your customers to call.
You can rent a phone system now
The market allows you to rent a phone system as a service now. It’s called hosted or managed PBX. More and more carriers deliver it. They do all the maintenance. You avoid buying a system that will become outdated. Plus, you consolidate services so that same company that delivers your phone service also manages your phone system. In this way, you eliminated the frustrating finger pointing that can go on between service carriers and phone vendors when problems arise.
