Choosing a new phone system with unified communications software should be an exciting time for your business – you’re ready to work smarter and more efficiently. The only thing between you and productivity nirvana is the pesky contract.
3 warning signs to watch
Watch for these four warning signs when evaluating your phone system provider:
1) Only lawyers could love this contract
2) The long-term commitment trap
3) No flexibility
If your business grows, are you out a bundle of money to add lines, phones or users? If your seasonal help leaves for a full-time job, are you stuck with more phones for the life of your contract? Look for the flexibility to change your service to a higher or lower level, add or subtract users, or even upgrade your hardware at any time.
If any of this sounds familiar, it may be time to heed the warning signs. Before you make your final decision, ask yourself: “If getting on board and leaving is so hard, what’s it going to be like doing business every day?” Of course, we’d be happy to help you avoid these contract no-no’s when you work with Fonality.
