As a small business or start-up, choosing the right telecommunications set-up is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Choosing the right telecommunications for your small business

What business communications you will need?

The days where business IT and telecommunications worked separately from one another are long behind us. Established businesses have found themselves dealing with a number of different bills from telecoms and IT suppliers each month, due to having built up their communications solutions over a number of years.

Why go to different suppliers for your business communications  and IT when you can get everything you need from one company?

Let’s look at it another way. One day you have a problem, but you’re not sure if it’s the phone lines or the phone system? Perhaps it’s the phones themselves, or maybe there’s a fault with the internet connection.

When you have a number of different suppliers, each dealing with one aspect of your business IT and telecommunications, who do you call to fix the problem? More importantly, will they take responsibility for it?

In our experience, it’s when things go wrong that business truly begin to realise how difficult and frustrating it can be to have so many suppliers responsible for their telecommunications. By this point, they find themselves unable to get through to their customers and vice versa, and this is not good for business.

Choosing a business telephone system for your small business or start-up

A traditional PBX telephone system requires considerable investment, but fortunately, there are other, more affordable, solutions. This includes a fully hosted VoIP phone system.

Business telephone lines

What are leased lines?

Leased lines connect two ports via dedicated fibre optic cables, without the need for a telephone number. They provide a simple, reliable and secure solution for internet VPN, private networks or for connecting two geographically separate areas. They can be used as a direct connection to the internet and will act as a dedicated connection with no shared bandwidth.
