Why It’s Time to Upgrade Your Telecoms System

October 2019

As accountants and business advisors, we know better than most how important communication is for businesses. We’re living in a digital age where it’s likely you spend more time communicating with your customers and colleagues via email or telephone than you do in person.

Why It's Time to Upgrade Your Telecoms System

This modern way of working calls (pun intended) for a modern telecoms system.

Firstly, what are telecoms?

Telecoms or telecommunications is the transmission of voice, messages, video and data via electronic means. The value and importance of being able to send and receive such communications over vast distances goes without saying.

Time to Upgrade

Despite the importance of business connectivity, many businesses are still using out of date systems and suffering from slow internet speeds to boot.

In fact, 2 million of BT’s customers are currently using what’s known as an ISDN system. ISDN is due to start being phased out in 2020 and completely switched off by 2025. This makes now the perfect time to upgrade to a VoIP (voice over IP) system, where calls are made via the internet.

Perhaps best of all, upgrading will more than likely save you money as VoIP calls are significantly cheaper than those made over a standard telephone system. There is also no need to install a dedicated telephone network, making it a cost-effective solution for your business. Typically, this means that you could save up to 75% on your bills!

While upgrading your telephone system, why not upgrade to superfast broadband? Or review your mobile phone package? It is not uncommon to be able to switch to faster broadband or a more suitable business mobile provider without having to part with any extra cash.

Improved connectivity means improved communication with both your staff and customers – your two biggest assets.
