Where Have All the Desk Phones Gone?

Let the cloud take care of your phone.

Employees at most organizations have noticed a gradual lightening of their desks over the past couple of years. First went most of the paper, replaced by large, squat computers. Then, the computers themselves began to get lighter and lighter, until many of them weighed barely as much as the paper used to. Now, a recent study has shown that even the phones themselves are drifting away. What is the cause of this gradual revolt against things on desks? Will there be anything on anyone's desk in the next few years? If the cloud and hosted VoIP services have anything to say about it, they maybe not.

While companies are shedding their physical phones, they are not shedding the more useful things those phones used to do - make calls and use access voicemail. Now, more often than not user's cellphones have the option to send and receive texts whenever they want to. With a hosted VoIP business phone system they can do that on a company line without having to give out their personal numbers. Yet, they can still stay in contact with other members of staff. Thanks to the advent of these types of technologies it's easier than ever for people to stay in touch.

Understanding the role of communication in a company
Being sure that the communication lines of an organization are clear is an important part of maintaining a strong business. Through the use of hosted VoIP, a company can keep its quality of service high without having to spend all day figuring out different technical odds and ends. Unlike previous types of call centers, it isn't necessary to have to trouble shoot your individual calls for jitter or different types of signal interference, which a recent No Jitter article discussed. Instead, you can rest easy and let your hosting organization sort out issues with sound.

Communication is the lifeblood of business, and the best way to make sure that your company is able to function well and circulate its ideas is to clear up any blockages it may have. By outsourcing the care that must go in to the upkeep of a businesse' phone service, that organization can save a lot of time and be allowed to focus on the words that matter. Communication pertaining to your business is important, but communication about how to get your lines fixed is boring. Get a hosted VoIP provider for your business phone system and stop talking about boring things.
