A hosted PBX requires no onsite hardware – the PBX service is provided by a third-party provider who takes care of all the maintenance, software updates etc.
Benefits of a Hosted PBX
Prior to VoIP technology if you required call centre infrastructure you needed a heap of expensive phone lines (aka trunks), expensive equipment (like your own PBX) and someone armed with an IT degree to be able to operate it.
Thankfully with a Hosted PBX, it’s never been easier to have your own call centre setup.
All you need is an internet connection, an IP handset, computer and headset and you are in business!
A hosted PBX provides numerous benefits including:
There is no expensive equipment to purchase upfront, much cheaper ongoing monthly costs and you won’t need an IT expert to set it all up.
The best thing about a Hosted PBX is you only pay for what you use.
This enables you to scale your solution as your business grows and you can add or delete additional features as you need them.
As all you need is an internet connection and an IP Phone (you can also use your mobile phone with a dedicated App) you can essentially be connected to your call centre anywhere in the world.
