August 7 2013 ArchivesAs a small or home office (SOHO) owner, you’re on the lookout for services that help give your business a boost. One frequently overlooked service is the technology for your business phone system. As a SOHO owner, you may think you’re too small to take advantage of “big-company” communications features. But, the cloud has leveled the playing field by making the most advanced telecommunications services that big companies use within reach for small businesses owners. What is cloud computing (the cloud)? Aside from being a buzzword, cloud computing consists of services and computing systems accessed over the Internet, which frees you from maintaining computer servers and hardware at your place of business. Owners of SOHO offices require phone technology that caters to their budget, addresses their needs and grows with them. Our cloud phone service does all of that and more! Here are four reasons why you should move your SOHO’s phone system to a cloud pbx now. Small Business, Big Presence Vocalocity is loaded with big-company features that specifically cater to those who are shouldering the responsibility of running a business by themselves. For example, our Follow Me feature allows users to have calls forwarded to multiple numbers that will ring in a designated sequence so you never miss a call from current or potential customers. Perhaps you’re not at a stage where you can hire a receptionist, but you still need one. Vocalocity’s virtual receptionist feature is available to give your business a professional, front-office presence – and it will never call in sick. Never Lose Service Plain old telephone service is vulnerable to natural disasters, meaning you can lose telephone service for hours, days or even months in the wake of a major storm. Having your business phone system hosted in the cloud means the conduit to your customers is never interrupted because of power outages or natural disasters. With the cloud, your phone system is protected from nature’s elements. You Want to Grow – Efficiency is Key As you watch your business grow, you will need to add staff and offices to accommodate the success. Having your business phone system hosted in the cloud means you can grow as easy as one, two, click. You can easily add extensions with the click of a mouse, avoiding the hassle of having a telephone servicer come out to your office. And, you won’t have to experience any downtime because the extensions are made available immediately. You Have Enough to Think About You are trying to grow a business, and we understand how much energy that takes. Vocalocity’s customer service team is here to support your business phone system so you can focus on other parts of your business. Additionally, we have a dedicated customer support landing page on our site to offer answers to your questions or help you with your system 24/7.
