Using a business phone

What is a business phone system?

A business phone system is a collection of telephones that are connected in a network and share features such as call forwarding, call recording and voicemail. Such phone systems can range from just a couple of telephones to hundreds (or even thousands) of extensions, depending on what the company requires.


Traditionally, business phone systems have required a great deal of setup and maintenance due to the vast amounts of infrastructure such as cabling and hardware. However, the development of cloud technology and VoIP has negated the need for physical equipment, increasing the connection options available to customers.

Ways of connecting

Cloud vs traditional - what's best?

There has been a lot of debate about whether cloud phone systems are better than traditional on-premises solutions, but it really depends on you and your business. Cloud-based systems are a lot more flexible and require far less outlay than physical landlines, although the fact they need a stable internet connection might rule them out for some companies.
