Cisco: 5 Things to Look for in a Small-Business Phone System

When is the last time you made a major personal purchase, like a car? How much time did you spend researching options before you finally made your decision? Turns out, most people spend 15 hours actively researching before buying a car. And once you buy it, you spend more money on gas, oil changes, tire rotations, and other maintenance. And the car’s value begins to depreciate as soon as you drive it off the lot.

When is the last time you purchased a new small-business phone system? How much time did you spend researching? Did you know what features and benefits to look for?

If you are in the market for a new phone system, it’s worth spending some time doing product research. Especially considering that unlike a new car, a phone system can actually save money or even help you make money.

5 things to look for

Simple management. Not everyone is a mechanic, so most people want a car that is easy to maintain so they don’t have to take it into the shop regularly. Likewise, most small businesses don’t have huge IT departments to manage complex communications systems. In some cases, you may have only one IT person who handles all your technology. When you buy a new phone system:

  • Take a look at the back-end management and make sure that the upkeep requires minimal effort.
  • Find out if it’s easy to complete day-to-day tasks like adding new lines, changing extensions, resetting passwords, etc.

Remember, less time spent maintaining the phone system means you can spend more time on other, more productive activities around the office.
