What Sets Cloud-Based Phone Systems Apart


A growing business that is expanding with each day that passes needs to have top of the line equipment and resources. In order for that business to be properly connected to the rest of the world, a VoIP phone system is needed. Of all of the options to choose from, a cloud-based may be best for your business.

Cloud Based Phone System Benefits
  • Uses the internet to make and receive phone calls rather than relying on expensive and oftentimes, unreliable phone lines.
  • Less cabling is required due to all of your communications being consolidated to one network.
  • Remote workers can call the main office without long distance charges. All office to office calls are easy to make and free as a bird!
  • Many applications and features are available, such as: call forwarding, automated call systems, CRM support, conference calls, history of calls, and many more!
  • Since this system uses “the cloud,” expensive equipment doesn’t need to be installed at your business location. The phones will operate using the internet and a server that is off-site and doesn’t need to be purchased.
  • Small businesses might not want to commit to an expensive on premise VoIP system so a cloud-based system will be the smarter option. The upfront cost is tremendously less expensive and you can still add users as your company grows.

A cloud-based phone system might be the smartest move for your small, yet growing business.

How To Save Money On Your Telephony Costs

Are you still using that old copper wire that’s charging you an arm and a leg in monthly telephone costs? Regular business phones can cost more money than they should and there’s no reason to pay it. It’s time to cut costs on monthly telephone bills, but there’s no reason you should have to cut the extra features as well.

Cancel Current Phone Service
The first step in saving money is to cancel your current phone service because it is obviously too expensive. With the advancement of the internet, mobile phones, and other technology, it doesn’t make sense to pay hundreds of dollars per month to communicate with others. Fortunately, there are ways to use the internet to your advantage when it comes to making phone calls.

Purchase a VoIP System
Next, purchase a VoIP system and have it installed. You can certainly do this for your residential home, but you will save an immense amount of money when you do this to your business. A business can have anywhere from a handful of phones to hundreds so there is going to be a lot of phone calls taking place. There will be a cost to replace every phone with new VoIP phones, but the savings are coming!

Free Calls
Yes, you read that right -- free calls! How is this possible? VoIP phone systems use your computer and the internet to allow the phone calls to be placed. So instead of paying monthly bills to a phone service provider, just continue to pay your internet bills. While there is a cost to install new phones and have the extensive interface for customization, it doesn’t compare to the amount you’ll save in monthly calling bills.

Are you looking to switch from your current phone service to a VoIP telephony system? Reliable Voice & Data Systems is here to provide your business with the installation, interface, and service of a VoIP phone system. Just give us a call at (800) 287-4500 today!

Computer Security Myths Debunked

The internet is a place that we’ve become all too familiar with, but how much do we really know about it? Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths about the internet and computer security that give its users the wrong information. Knowing what is fact and what is false is important for your security.

Myth: What are the chances that hackers will come after me?
Fact: The chances of a hacker specifically targeting you are not very high unless you are known to have a lot of information or money. However, there are many internet-wide phishing scams that target vulnerable computers. You can be hacked for your financial information or even just for extra computer space to store illegal materials.

Myth: Incognito windows keep me protected!
Fact: The point of an incognito window is to not save your browser history or cookies from websites. Other than that, it is the same old browser that you always use. The privacy is more for those who share the computer with you than it is to block out your service provider, websites, etc.

Myth: Why should I use anti-malware if I don’t visit harmful websites?
Fact: Just because you only visit safe and secure websites doesn’t mean that you are 100 percent safe. These safe websites that you visit can get hacked and viruses can be uploaded to them. When you visited these sites you can be susceptible to those same viruses. Using anti-malware and virus protection is recommended because even websites like YouTube can be hacked!

Knowing the computer security myths and the truth behind them can help you stay protected during your journey through the internet. Do you want a more secure connection? If so, our computer network cabling services can help. Reliable Voice & Data Systems is here to provide your business with the best computer network cabling services available.
