Why Choose a Virtual PBX Phone System?
A virtual or cloud PBX system allows you to place and receive calls from a PC or a mobile device as well as a desk phone. As long as you have an internet connection, you’ll have phone connectivity.
How PBX Systems Work
With a legacy PBX phone system, calls are routed through the PBX, a telecom switch that resides on the customer’s premises. The business is responsible for maintaining the necessary hardware on-site. A legacy PBX connects to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) to initiate a phone call. Aside from basic call forwarding, users do not have the ability to use a legacy PBX system when located outside the office.
With a cloud PBX system using VoIP, the PSTN network is interconnected via an internet connection to route the call. That means full phone functionality from anywhere with an internet connection.
Advantages of Virtual PBX
No hardware to maintain
With a cloud PBX phone system, there’s no need to maintain or rely on any hardware on premises. That means less hassle of maintaining equipment, and the ability to leverage modern hardware rather than staying with the same phone model for years.
Flexible and agile communications
Businesses depend on a virtual PBX system to deliver flexible communication interactions with customers and colleagues regardless of the location - at the office, working remotely, or even on the go.
Cloud PBX phone systems provide the ability to use modern devices and because they are software-based, new features can be added frequently.
