As technology improves and changes, most office technology will also change. If your office phones haven't been upgraded in a long time, there is new technology passing you by.
Upgrade for New Support
For older phone systems, there is often no support left for the setup. Because they are so outdated, older phone systems no longer have the advantage of getting new updates and improvements, and support may be completely nonexistent. Setting up new phone systems, however, allow for better support for a product that is actively being improved.
Lack of Features
An older phone system may be well-equipped to make phone calls, but if that's all it can do, it's falling behind. Your competition likely has a newer phone system that can do much more than making calls. From conferencing to transcribing voice messages, there are plenty of modern features that can help make business communication more productive. When you get employees using a new system, you will find that they have many uses for these expanded features. They can use these to make calls quicker, more productive, or to include more people in them.
Routing Calls More Quickly
The latest phone systems incorporate multiple ways for phone calls to get where they need to go. Many businesses no longer need to employ a receptionist because of how well these VoIP phone systems work. Having to give out an extension for your specific line can still be done, but it isn't the only way to get through. This allows the caller to direct where their calls go and to go through fewer people in that pursuit. No one likes to be put on hold, and with many new phone systems, there is no need to be.
