Small Business Growth Tips

If you’re unhappy with your current business phone system, you’re not alone. Every day, businesses are either making the technological shift from Analog to VoIP or leaving their current business phone systems behind for one that can better meet their needs.

The great thing about VoIP business phone systems is that making the switch is seamless and painless. FastPBX is helping businesses boost their productivity and grow their business with tailored communication tools. In three easy steps, you too can be on your way to VoIP business phone systems that serve your communication needs.

1. Understand your specific communication needs

If you’re already using VoIP business phone systems, you may already have access to some essential features. The first thing you should do is take note of which features currently make your communications easier; then, research FastPBX services to see which features stand out to you. If there are any in particular that can optimize your communications strategy, make a list and keep it handy for step 3.

Note: FastPBX services are not limited to what is shown on the website. A cloud specialist can consult with you to tailor a communications strategy for optimal performance.

2. Make sure you are network-ready

There is more to being network-ready than simply having a reliable internet provider. Some smaller businesses only use one phone; therefore, they only need one network connection, meaning one port (wall jack) to plug in a business IP phone. Larger companies using multiple phones need to have access to multiple ports to be able to plug in their office phones.

Make sure anyone who will be using the phone service will be able to conveniently access the hardware and that your internet provider can keep up with your calling features without compromising quality.

3. Call FastPBX

Getting in touch with a cloud specialist is the last significant step towards getting your new VoIP business phone systems implemented. Our professional team of knowledgeable professionals will walk you through a proposal, help you bring over your existing phone number (or provide a new local or toll-free business phone number), and discuss a plan that suits your business based on the needs you listed in step 1.

When our cloud specialists know more about what you need, they can better consult with you on the best plan and features you need.

Additional Considerations

Contracts. We work with you to ensure that you’re getting the most value before you sign up for our service. Sometimes, users are still under contract with their existing provider. If you are currently locked in with a contract, give FastPBX a chance to bid for a better price for our service when your contract expires. We’ll do our best to meet your demands at a rate that fits your budget.

Number porting. Bringing over your existing number is as simple as filling out a Local Number Portability (LNP) form. Make sure all of the information is as accurate as possible to ensure the process moves quickly and you can start enjoying your new business phone system as soon as possible.

The Best Office Phone for Your Business

What’s a good VoIP business phone service without reliable hardware?

If you’re starting a new business and you’re on the hunt for sturdy hardware, we recommend a Cisco office phone. Although FastPBX services are compatible with most IP phones, such as Polycom and Yealink, we always recommend a Cisco office phone for the best experience with our service.
