The PBX often referred to as an ‘on-premise’ telephone system, continues to be reliable, sturdy and the backbone of many businesses communications. Rather than sitting in the cloud, today the PBX is a complete little box that sits in an area of your office, controlling all aspects of your business telephony.
So with the introduction of cloud communications, why would you consider a PBX?
The PBX is still a great solution, for businesses who require greater control of their telecoms, or who want a more robust, stronger comms solution. It also does not require a good broadband connection which cloud telephony relies upon.
Key reasons for a business to operate a PBX system.
- They can use one centralised PBX system for multiple offices.
- They retain control of their telephone system, for features and fine-tuning.
- They make an enormous amount of calls that a cloud system would struggle to handle.
