Selecting the Right Phone System for Your Business
For growing businesses, the use mobile phones to operate and communicate with clients can be a costly mistake. As of the moment, mobile technology is not robust and sophisticated enough to support an enterprise with rapidly increasing service and operation demands. As a business owner, it will really benefit you to get to know the other phone systems available out there.
This is the most basic type of phone system and powered by Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), which is a collection of interconnected voice-oriented public telephone networks in the world. Landline is reliable and offers great call quality that is why most establishments still use it. But this system lacks flexibility and mobility, which are more and more becoming a requirement for modern businesses today.
This stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. This phone system involves both hardware and software that allow people to exchange voice data (talk) using the internet. The traditional phone line, on the other hand, uses circuit transmissions PSTN. One good example of VoIP technology is the Microsoft-owned Skype. Many small business owners naturally gravitated to VoIP because of its free call deals, but this system does not have the same level of reliability like the landline. VoIP call quality is not consistent, and if the internet connection is weak, the whole business telecoms system goes down. However, VoIP is still considered an excellent platform for international calls as it is definitely less expensive than a landline. If you intend to make many long distance calls and videoconferencing, VoIP may be a good choice for your growing business.
Bigger companies use the PBX (Private Branch Exchange) system. This system uses the internet and the company’s LAN (Local Area Network) to send and receive calls. PBX systems are easy to manage and can be upgraded. They are ideal for organizations that have mobile employees and those that need to contact customers, record conversations and provide customer services.
To ensure call quality and increase reliability, a number of medium to large businesses often choose the hybrid option. This particular phone system taps into the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and linking it to the business' PBX system. This gives business owners and operators the best of both worlds. However, the hybrid system is obviously more complicated to set up, and thus require a bigger budget allocation.
What our clients say about DCR Telecommunications
"I spoke with Zach over at DCR about having a new camera system set up for my home. I had received one of their sales flyers on my door one morning and because of the criminal activity that had recently been witnessed in my area (my car being broken into multiple times...) I instantly took interest to the flier...
They came out the next day and gave me a free estimate. They looked around my home, they where very professional and clean. They told me the basic camera options and then discussed pricing with me. They told me all new products sold by them comes with a 1 year service warranty. So if any camera stops working they come out and fix it, no charge! I thought that was cool.They don't simply install their products and leave you high and dry. They truly take care of their clients. They really seemed to fit the correct system to my house without going over my budget. The Install went fast and smooth. They where in and out of my home in 2 days. They cleaned whatever mess they created and completed the install perfectly to my specifications. The cameras look great, night vision is fantastic and the mobile viewing option really provides a feeling of comfort when i can keep an eye on my home even while I'm not there. I did call around multiple other vendors in the Reno area and received significantly higher quotes from them all. I would highly recommend DCR to anyone in the 775 area in need of Surveillance."
