Hybrid phone systems are becoming increasingly popular for businesses nowadays. But what is a hybrid phone system and what advantages can they offer your business? In this article, we will be discussing just that. Let’s start with the basics!
What is a Hybrid Phone System?
A hybrid phone system offers you the best of both worlds, it’s a blend of a digital phone system and a cloud-based (VOIP – Voice Over Internet Protocol) phone system. This means that you can make and take calls using digital lines, VOIP lines and analogue lines. The system will be located in your business and can offer you flexibility with your choice of fixed or cordless handsets.
What Advantages can a Hybrid Phone System Offer Your Business?
Having a hybrid phone system can offer your business a range of advantages, let’s discuss a few of these below:
+ Improved Reliability
The main advantage of a hybrid system is its reliability! If one type of line fails for you, your system will automatically be able to route calls through a backup line. Meaning your callers can always get through to you and you can always get through to them.
+ Increased Scalability
If you’re growing your business, you’ll need to add new users throughout time as you recruit new employees. New employees means more handsets and more lines. With a hybrid phone system, this doesn’t have to mean you need to invest in more hardware! It’s quick and easy to add new users to your system! This helps to make your communications set up more customisable as you can constantly be tweaking things to really meet the needs of your business.
+ Utilise Your Current Infrastructure
A hybrid system will make use of the current lines you have at your business, this means installation costs are lower than they might be with other types of system as you don’t need to start from scratch. Installations are easy and painless – especially when carried out by a Yo Telecom engineer!
+ Gives you a Taste of the Cloud
You may have heard people raving about cloud-based (or VOIP) communications. If you aren’t ready to make the switch, the hybrid phone system is the answer for you. You get all the modern features and flexibility of an internet-based phone system, but also the reliability and security of having a backup digital system that runs through fixed lines. Giving you the best of both worlds.
