As your business grows, you’ll find your telecommunications costs rising as you deal with an increasing number of clients, suppliers, and other business related calls – all of this can contribute to a hefty bill at the end of each month.
Fortunately, there are several ways to minimise the cost of business calls while staying in touch – here are some cost saving strategies that every business can implement.
Invest in a PBX system
If you don’t already have a PBX system, now may be the perfect time to get one. The PBX has come a long way over the decades, and the systems available today seamlessly integrate telephone, internet, VoIP, and a host of other telecoms services in one.
The main idea behind a PBX system, and the reason why it makes financial sense to have one, is that it allows your office to share phone lines, internet connections, a LAN network and other communication channels instead of having to install more lines. This cuts down on line rental fees and could reduce your monthly overheads dramatically.
Opt for VoIP
Across the globe, companies are using Voice-over-IP (VoIP) services which allow voice calls to be made using an internet connection – and South Africa is no exception.
A Neotel line can be integrated into your company’s PBX system in place of a traditional land line, serving several users at once and avoiding unnecessary delays caused by placing calls on hold.
Saving money in a business is an age-old quest, so make sure you take advantage of the technology out there that keeps your overheads down helps to streamline logistics.
