What You Need to Know Before You Get a Telephone System Quote.

Planning a telephone system installation is not an easy feat but it is doable. You need to do a few steps such as research, planning and choosing your options. When asking for a telephone system quote, you should first consider the following points.

Do you have a current phone system?

Why is there a need to replace this system? If you have an existing system, it’s good to have your phone bill ready. It contains a lot of information that a new supplier can use such as the circuit type and the service type. The supplier can also tell you if you are able to fully utilize all the services that you are paying through your phone bill. Be ready to answer questions about the services that you availed, why you availed such services and how you use them.

How many calls do you receive? Get an average of calls per day. If you don’t have a system yet, just make an estimate based on your type of business.

How many calls do you make? Will you getting business primarily through phone? If so, how many employees will need a phone and how many calls will they make on any given day? Another thing to consider is how many calls do you usually make at the same time? Do you have 10 employees who use the phone at the same time? Or is the number 7 out of 10?

What type of phone system are you planning to purchase? There are different types of phone systems. There’s a PBX, KSU, KSU-Less and the latest in phone systems technology, the VoIP. These vary in features, flexibility and costs. The phone system will base entirely on how you want to use it in your business and how much you are willing to invest.

What features do you want? All phones come with basic features. As you add features, the price goes higher. Make sure that the features that you choose are all “needs” and not “wants”. Don’t ask for a quote for a phone system that is equipped with all the latest technology when all you need is a basic phone.

What is your budget? Are you willing to spend extra if the system you want is above your budget?

Is this a short term or a long term system? Do you have plans for expansion in the near future? You need to consider these things before asking for a quote. If you feel that you will be growing in the next few months, better ask for a quote that allows for system expansion.

Do you have mobile employees? This is an important factor when choosing a phone system. If you want to access your system outside the office or if you have mobile employees, make sure that your provider can support that function.

Ask for quotes from different providers. Set appointments with them and ask for further explanation and demos, if any. Ask questions. This will help you make an informed decision.
