Mistake: And lastly, probably the biggest mistake most make, is picking a solution that does not work the way you work. Are you on the road often? Do demands from your personal life come up at times, forcing you to work remotely? How you work must be considered when selecting a phone system for your business, but is often overlooked when just going down a features / functionality selection checklist.
How to Avoid: Get a system that works for you, not against you. Choose a system that is flexible, dynamic and works the way you do. If you’re often on the road, for example, don’t purchase a phone service that only works in your office. Select a phone system that can work in multiple locations, connecting you with your customers when you’re in the car, office or at an off-site meeting. Pick a solution that not only meets your needs today, but also has a focus on innovation, so as your business grows and your needs change, it can too.
As a business, you want customers to be able to reach you. The correct phone system allows customers, current and future, to reach you. The solution you choose should be flexible, grow with your company and allow you to work from anywhere.
