When it comes to choosing your preferred method of communication, there are always two options. The eternal dilemma of cloud vs. PBX no longer needs to plague your decisions or halt your business goals. Affiliated Communications can help highlight the positives of both and how they boost your communication in different ways.
On-Premise Communication Systems
Phone lines are a cost-effective solution for small businesses that use a single phone number and primarily communicate internally or locally. On-site solutions are flexible and reliable, providing you with the phone numbers, messaging, mobility, and more that you need to get the job done. Communication solutions such as Mitel and Avaya provide the unified communications tools and investments necessary to innovate your business and make a change.
On-premise phone calls are as simple as pressing a button and all of the services you use are housed on your property, so the maintenance, upgrades, and management is up to your discretion. On-premise doesn’t only mean traditional phone systems either. You can have mobile, multimedia, and smartphone bundles on your system package. So long as you have the infrastructure to handle everything, the sky’s the limit.

The Benefits of Cloud-Based Phone Systems
Cloud phone systems offer your business new ways of acquiring technology and using it to benefit your bottom line. Instead of purchasing components and installing them internally, you pay a monthly cloud phone service fee to a hosting service that stores all the cloud applications, technology, servers, and information in a secure database. Upgrades are as simple as making a phone call or email to increase the number of phone lines at your disposal, international calls are cheaper, and cloud-based phone services are potentially less expensive.
If you have a large company, hosting and maintaining internal phone systems and data is a taxing job that takes up precious resources to maintain. At some point, it’s a more cost-effective alternative to leave the management and maintenance services to a hosted expert service so you can focus on continued growth and goals. Whether you work remotely or in the office, cloud VoIP solutions provide a competitive edge that helps you grow your business.
Saving Time and Money
No matter which option you choose, you’ll come out on top. If you’re comfortable managing your assets internally, on-premise is the better option. If you would rather let an expert handle the details, cloud-based services are the choice for you. Affiliated Communications helps you determine the optimal choice for your business and sets you up for success. We have installation services that can provide you with the tools needed to set up an on-premise system and we have a variety of partners and services to help set you up with a cloud-based phone solution.
