phone systems

Inefficiency is a tough nut to crack. It can come from a lot of places in your office, and, unfortunately, it's not always easy to track and eliminate. The good news is that it's easy to tell if your phone systems are the culprit--just keep an eye out for these big signs.

Bad Phone Systems = Bad Communication

Your phone systems are at the heart of all the communication that goes on in your workplace, so it makes sense that a problem here can easily turn into a problem everywhere. Inefficient, outdated, or weak phone systems can cause huge losses of time and money, not to mention all the frustration they might be causing--so if you suspect that your phone system is causing grief, try to identify these signs that guarantee it's time for an upgrade.

Sign #1: Your phone systems always need maintenance or repairs.

If you have low-cost systems, the chances are that you have high-cost maintenance needs. You'll find yourself doing repairs more often than using the phone, and that's a sure sign that it's time to make some changes.

Sign #2: Your phone systems can't keep up.

Your company needs to be able to change with the times--but if your phone systems can't keep up with your most basic needs (like call transfers or voicemail-to-email options), then something is definitely wrong. A phone system should never drag you down.

Sign #3: Your phone systems cause communication chaos.

Are you always missing calls or realizing that your phone systems caused some huge mistake? Is your communication suffering as a result? These are sure signs that your phone systems aren't the right fit for your company and are wasting more money and time than they're saving.
