Business VoIP and hosted PBX (News - Alert) provider Versature is planning a move in the New Year to a larger facility in order to accommodate its growth. Moving a company to a new location is extremely demanding and stressful and while multiple people are involved in the planning of the move, shifting the phone system is often the last thing thought of during the planning process due to the various complexities associated with shifting a premise-based phone system.
According to the company, the decision to relocate a business triggers a review of the companies' phone system, because of any of these reasons: the business is moving to a different area of the city or country and they are told that they can't keep their phone number; the business is either growing or contracting, and their current phone system is old, not meeting the current needs of the organization, and/or will require expensive upgrades; or companies want to take advantage of the latest features of business VoIP phone systems.
Business VoIP phone systems offer several innovative features such as voicemail-to-email, find-me/follow-me, integration with smartphones, and bringing together remote office and remote workers.
Specifically, Versature’s business VoIP phone system assists businesses in migrating to a flexible and hardware-independent telephony system, allowing companies to keep their phone number even if they are moving across the country. Furthermore, this business VoIP system offers greater mobility and powers successful work at home environments.
Ideally, businesses should set up the hosted VoIP phone system three months or more before the big move date, according to company officials. This allows their employees to get comfortable with the new system at the old location and minimizes productivity issues after the move.
