A phone system is a phone system, right? It’s easy to think that because telecommunications technology is now commonplace, that any old solution will do. Well, you’d be surprised to hear that there are a number of reasons why telecommunications, and it’s sub-group – internet solutions, matters more to small business than ever before.
In this post we cover some of the top reasons why it is important for small business managers to work with an independent telelcom agent for all their telecommunications needs.
- People still like talking to businesses on the phone - as we pointed out, there’s a lot that online marketing and sales can work in tandem with each other. But at the end of the day, people will pick up the phone and call when they are very close to making a decision to buy. Making sure that your phone lines are working properly and that sales calls are going to the sales team and not the warehouse or operations team means that you have a better chance of closing a sale the moment the opportunity arises.
- More of your business is online - whether you like it or not, most tools available to business managers require an internet connection of some sort. Let’s not forget the most important business asset: your data. Whether it be your customer contact data or your sales and accounting data – you don’t realize how valuable access to all that information is until you can’t get to it, or worse – it is gone forever.
- We’re business people too - we see things from your perspective and can spend the time to come up with a solution that’s going to work best for you.
