5 Reasons to Switch to a PBX Phone System

PBX phone systems are changing the way we do business. The reason for its prevalence is that it gives considerable benefits compared to the old-school phone systems. The key benefits are as follows:


1. Cheaper phone service

PBX phone systems cost only a tenth of your old phone system and have twice the number of features. Many of our customers who made the switch report savings of as little as $50 per month.


2. Affordable International Calls

If you use an office phone system or PBX phone system, your international call rates will be slashed in half, in comparison to your old system. Very often, international calls cost just a couple of cents per minute. If you live in Canada, you know how important affordable international calls are. Calling someone within the same province or metropolis could cost you an arm and a leg….but not with PBX phone system.


3. Free Features

A PBX system is loaded with free features. Among them are voicemail, call conferences, call waiting, caller ID, call forwarding, and tons of others. Office phone system users can have their voice messages emailed to them to access them anywhere. On the old system, these features will cost at least $5 each.


4. Convenience

The best thing about a PBX phone system is its convenience. When customers call, they can choose who they want to speak to from a number of touch tone options, which is otherwise impossible without an office phone system. Plus, a PBX phone system is active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, because it’s online.


5. Mobile

The old phone system assigns a phone number with a dedicated line, so you will not be able to move your home phone to another place if you want to use the same phone number. It is way too much of a problem to call the phone company and ask for a phone number update when moving to a new building. However, the PBX phone system affords businesses with mobility: The phone device can use the same number virtually everywhere as long as it has proper internet connection. Many business people today bring their VoIP phones with them when traveling and use the same numbers everywhere.
