Is Your Current Phone System Burning A Hole In Your Pocket?

By Luke Watts // 19th July 2019

Although we bask in the conveniences of the internet in our everyday working lives, it can be easy to forget how much reliance we put on our telephone systems.

Businesses have been utilising telephones to connect with customers long before the world wide web was even conceived. However, despite businesses taking full advantage of the internet, phone systems are still an integral fixture within every business. Whether you have a quick query, a business meeting, or simply want to have a natter with an associate, your desk phone is there to handle the job.

But with so many PBX and VOIP systems on the market, it can be easy to get bogged down by all the technical jargon.

Before you know it, you’re burning a hole in your pocket with a mediocre phone system, that doesn’t have all the functionalities that your business needs.

If your phone bills are leaving a sour taste in your mouth every month, we have the perfect solution!

But first, let’s chew up some of that technical jargon!

What Does PBX & VOIP Stand For?

Whether you have been in business for two years or two minutes, technical acronyms can leave you feeling a little overwhelmed. After all, how complicated can a phone system be, right?

PBXPrivate Branch Exchange is a private, dedicated phone network that is used to connect companies or organisations with their customers.

VOIP – Voice Over Internet Protocol, also referred to as IP Telephony is a system which allows you to deliver voice communication and multimedia sessions over the internet.

What’s The Difference?

One of the most simple distinctions between PBX and VOIP is the equipment. On the one hand, you have the more traditional PBX systems that rely on analogue telephone equipment, whereas the VOIP system handles calls and multimedia via mobile phones and computers.

Ultimately both the PBX and VOIP system achieve the same end goal – to connect you with customers.
