The period we are experiencing (COVID-19, remote working) has made possible many business processes that are becoming more digital and automated.
Small businesses need to be as flexible and agile as possible to keep up with the competition, and digital tools do that.
I want to talk to you in detail about integrations for business phones and how to actually use them not only to make smart working more effective but to show you how much more time you will have once installed and integrated with your phone system.
How can a company be more effective and also make its employees more effective with digital tools?
There are platforms that improve and facilitate everyday work, in all departments. The applications that you can integrate with business phones are designed to perform specific tasks for small and medium-sized businesses.
Integrations with other business phone apps are only possible (and they are really easy to implement) if yours is a cloud phone system, and not a traditional one where you just phone.
For example: do you want to add numerous telephone lines to your business overnight with a traditional phone system?
Do it, but you will need the extra time and expense and technical support staff.
Conversely, a cloud-based phone system, integrated with your business applications, allows you to manage business communication with customers at a lower cost than a traditional phone system and lets you do the same things every day easier.
The integrations between phone systems and applications (such as crm or contact books) allow all these instruments to communicate automatically with the phone system, centralizing information and automating the processes of the applications.
This is a strong point of our Cloud phone system.
Thanks to the integrations of a cloud phone system such as the Voxloud one, employees can use their applications together with the phone system wherever they are without having to be in the office, as they are both tools in the cloud and can be integrated with the Voxloud phone system.
With a cloud telephone system, you can therefore use both the phone system and the applications anywhere and without difficulty, because they communicate with each other and allow you to always have them with you, wherever you go.
Cloud phone system: the buying guide
There are hundreds of business telephone systems to choose from, just search Google to see the amount of different cloud phone systems that exist on the market.
In all of this, how do you figure out which phone system is best for you and your business?
How to find one that integrates seamlessly with the applications you use every day in the office?
It makes sense to use only what helps you better manage customers and increase your profits, integrating with your business tools such as crm, software.
