Phone systems for many businesses are the primary method of communicating with their customers, partners, and amongst employees. Having a proper and reliable phone system could mean the difference between a business succeeding or failing.
Many businesses have their own explicit communication needs and the costs of installing an integrated on-premises phone system can vary. For many businesses, the cost of a phone system, its add-ons, and the number of lines all factor directly into the overhead of the company. This leads to a deeply vested interest in minimizing the costs to increase profitability.
With an on-premises system, the hardware costs range from $3500 - $4500 for the basic phone system and enough desk phones for 5-10 lines, plus average monthly service fees of $66 per line. For a larger company, with 100+ lines this cost will grow exponentially as the base system will have to be expanded to meet your company’s infrastructure needs and each of the lines will add an additional cost that can grow out of control very quickly.
