Finding the right phone system for your business

If you run a business, this article is for you. The days of hardwired phone systems where you had to be at your desk to take a call or check your voicemail are a thing of the past. With modern business phone systems, you can work from home, control your phone system from your computer — just about anything you could possibly want to do, without missing a beat.

One of the business phone systems we sell at D&P Communications is called Switchvox. It’s what we use ourselves, and we like to call it “the Ferrari of phone systems.”

With Switchvox, you don’t need to hunt through a manual for codes or navigate interminable phone menus to reprogram your system — you can do it all right from your computer screen.

Do some of your clients still prefer to send you faxes? With Switchvox, those faxes can be automatically converted into Adobe PDFs for easy reading and storage.

And perhaps best of all, Switchvox makes working remotely a breeze. A few years ago, when a massive snowstorm hit southeast Michigan, most of our employees couldn’t safely make it into work. But our customers still needed us. Because of our state-of-the-art phone system, all of our employees were able to fire up their laptops and their cell phones and work from home. Our office was completely empty, but you would never have known it. Our phone system allowed the entire company to run like normal, even though nobody was physically there.

This kind of system isn’t necessarily for everyone. If you run a small business that only needs a few lines, installing something like Switchvox would be overkill — like using an elephant gun for squirrel-hunting. But if you have at least four or five users, or if you want a lot of flexibility, give us a call at 800-311-7340 and ask how we can help your business run more smoothly — no matter where you are!
