If your organization needs to make changes, deliver something new, fix something for a client or simply measure its growth, a new phone network can allow the company to move faster and with assurance. IP-based phone connection, through both SIP trunking and VoIP systems, allows organizations to get important information to each other very quickly, and with surprising speed.

Getting the best skills may require telecommuting with a cloud phone system

Tech talent is increasingly becoming hard to come by. The prevalence of computing and heavy electronics use in people's day-to-day lives is only matched by the lack of people who understand how it all works in the first place. This is rapidly becoming a problem for those inside and outside of the tech industry. Many groups are being forced to look for talent in places that they may not otherwise think of. One important way that companies can hire applicants is by utilizing better telecommunications procedures in order to connect with their candidates.

Why every law office needs a business phone system

Nobody said running a law firm was easy business. In fact, it can be highly stressful work, with lots of employees to manage, tons of files to keep track of, and an endless list of administrative tasks. For everyone in the legal field, it's imperative to look into ways to make the day-to-day workload more expedient, and to speed up processes that are possibly slowing work down. As far as those things go, bad communication can be one of the key elements that impedes the productivity of a law office. Say, for instance, that a lawyer is in court and realizes that he or she needs to verify a piece of data that's back at the office. With a legacy phone system, doing this might not be possible. Fortunately, though, business phone systems exist to help enterprises of all types run more smoothly. Here are some of the ways a sophisticated business communication network can elevate the work quality and efficiency at any legal office:

For small business, a phone system is vital

Posted by Kimberley Drobny, Vice President, Marketing

Small businesses are sometimes slow to adopt technologies that will end up helping them. The reason that smaller enterprises often don't keep pace with their big business counterparts in terms of technological growth is that new solutions are invariably expensive to deploy. But the expense of not rolling out innovative communication solutions can be a lot higher.

For businesses still operating legacy circuits, this might feel a little unsettling. Now that a larger segment of the general population is expecting VoIP-level connectivity, there's some pressure being felt by the companies that haven't adapted.

For small businesses, VoIP is a necessary lifeline

Posted by Chris Sobray, Product Manager

Companies are never in a state of rest (and in this day and age, they never should be!). With many industries in a constant state of flux, it’s especially important for small businesses to be in constant motion. However, there are plenty of things that can mess up a company, from big opportunities to natural disasters. Preventing unplanned downtime means finding the most efficient enterprise-level solutions for issues that might affect a business phone system.

The smaller the company, though, the higher the stakes.Small businesses need to ensure that no matter their size they are positioned in a way that makes them seem as if they are at the same level as their larger competition, which means that any amount of downtime makes this all the more difficult. The need to respond to any situation quickly is important, which is why making sure there’s little trouble for voice and data networks is just as important.
