With so many choices (and so many acronyms!), it’s tough to know where to begin when choosing a new voice system. In some cases, the physical parameters (e.g., the age of your building or wiring, the quality of available circuits) will narrow the decision for you. In other cases, the economics of the options will guide you in specific direction. For example, do you want to own your own physical phone system (and the maintenance and upgrades that come with it) or do you want to essentially “lease” your phone system (and have upgrades and replacement phones taken care of by someone else)? Here’s a side-by-side comparison of Digital West’s On Premise Land Line and Hosted/Cloud Phone options to help you better evaluate the alternatives.
