While most business owners have at least heard of virtual phone systems, some have yet to explore this option when performing telephone equipment and networking upgrades. Network Services Group (NSG) believes part of this apprehension likely stems from a simple lack of knowledge about how these systems, referred to as virtual PBX (private branch exchange), will affect day-to-day operations.

First, we’ll offer a brief explanation of what virtual PBX is and how it works:

  1. A hosted PBX is a different type of switchboard system used for a business’ telephone service.
  2. Some use on-premise PBX systems, although this option continues to head toward obsoletion, largely because businesses have to manage and maintain them.
  3. A hosted PBX system is based on cloud data storage. In other words, employees access a virtual PBX using the internet.

Now, here are some of the benefits your business could realize with a virtual phone system:

  1. Hosted virtual PBX systems are managed and maintained by a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service provider.
  2. Experienced companies will negotiate with these providers on your behalf, ensuring you always get the most for your dollar out of this rapidly changing technology. (NSG works with 35 telecommunications providers.) This is just one way in which these systems can save your business money.
  3. Virtual PBX, or cloud PBX, doesn’t require business owners to invest in hardware.
  4. Not only do they free your employees from managing a hardware PBX system, your business receives all the advanced features of a comprehensive business VoIP service, many of which aren’t available with traditional systems.
  5. You’ll have all these calling options and other benefits at a more affordable cost than your traditional PBX system. Using VoIP services with a cloud PBX can save your business up to 70 percent on your monthly telephone bill.
