Questions to ask or things to consider
1) Is an upgrade going to solve the issue or do you need to completely change?
If your system is just well used and worn you might want to just upgrade, but if it is outdated and some parts are not even available anymore then making a complete change is the better long-term decision.
2) What kind of features do you need?
Features include enhanced voice mail, wireless phones, remote location calling, call recording and so on. Having the right features can improve your efficiency and boost your professionalism or give you a layer of convenience.
3) Is this an opportunity to upgrade your phone technology?
Often people replace their old system with something that is almost the same because the familiar is easier to deal with. With lead-in cable installation technicians you can invest in new technology to keep your internet connectivity optimized.
4) What manufacturer do you prefer?
Some people have preferred manufacturers they like to use but if you are not sure, then look for one that has a good customer base, gets good reviews, and has a great reputation.
5) What will the costs be to change systems?
When you are looking at telephone line technician options part of the choice is going to come down to cost, but different telephone systems can also affect those costs. If you use something like VoIP you can use the improvements to your broadband connection to lower the costs.
6) Will your staff need training on its use?
Is the system so new that your staff and you will need training to use it? There is nothing wrong with that, but just be ready to have the training organized rather than expecting everyone to be able to use the new system without being shown how.
7) Do you make a lot of calls out of the country?
If you are making a lot of long-distance or international calls then that affects the kind of phone system that is best for you. Again VoIP is a good solution for this situation as you can make very affordable calls abroad. If you have family abroad, or you are a business with locations in different countries this becomes more true.
8) How many people are using the system?
The number of people who are going to use the phone system is also a factor to consider when choosing your new phone system. You might need lead-in cable installation to more than one location. Make sure too that the system can cope with lots of people using it at one time.
