The world is changing fast. When I was little, no one was using the term “smartphone”, “USB port”, or “touchscreen”. Maybe, in the next decade, we will no longer need a so-called “phone” and the new generation will have to go to a history museum to see a physical phone.

The world is dynamic, so is your business. It’s time to review your phone system to see if it can keep up with your competitors, partners, and, the most important of all, your customers. Here we put together the top 5 indicators your phone system is outdated.


Top 4 Warning Signs Your Phone System is Not Sufficient for Business

Indicator #1 Increasing Monthly Fee

An increased phone bill is the most obvious indication your phone system need a facelift. While your competitors are cutting down their phone bills, your high bills might be putting you at a disadvantage.

Indicator #2 Decreasing Customer Satisfaction

In this competitive world, customers are expecting fast and precise answers from you. If your phone system can’t keep up their needs (call quality, etc.), you might lose your customers to other competitors who can serve them more efficiently and clearly.

Indicator #3 Lower Work Flexibility

With the help of technology, employees are able to enjoy higher work flexibility than ever before. More and more people are working from home or in a virtual system. If your phone system is not able to support or manage remote workers, you might face losing valuable employees or decreased work ethic.

Indicator #4 Separated Multiple Communication Channels

If your system doesn’t have a unified communication system, you might find your employees using various private communication channels. Not only could they miss important messages, but waste a lot of time making sure everyone is on the same page.

Indicator #5 Difficult to Upscale or Downscale

Businesses are dynamic. It’s normal to upscale or downscale your business at times, therefore, you have to make sure the changing process is as simple as possible. If you find it costly or time-consuming to add/remove a few lines, the phone system is not sufficient for dynamic businesses.

Now you have briefly reviewed your phone system. Did you see any warning signs in your phone system? What other signs did you see your phone system is holding back your business? Share with us!
