Update: As a follow-up to our original post on a creative way to fund the replacement of your old phone system by upgrading your telephone service and internet access with less expensive and more capable service. I am happy to report that we found $746 PER MONTH in savings at the first company that took us up on our offer of a free analysis. More than enough to fund a new phone system…
Although it may sound too good to be true, companies with older Nortel phone systems can get a state of the art VoIP (Voice over IP) solution and pay for all or most of it using the savings realized from updating their telephone and internet access service. During the course of our analysis, we also find that companies are paying significant sums of money for services they either no longer need or no longer use.
If you still have an old Nortel system, you haven’t been able to upgrade your phone service to a relatively new technology called SIP (Session Initiation Protocol).
Your old Nortel system couldn’t use SIP technology.
Instead of using separate, dedicated lines like you used to get from “The Phone Company”, SIP comes in over your existing internet access circuit. And it costs a fraction of what you are currently paying for your current phone service.
Even “new” phone service from companies like Comcast, uses old technology and costs significantly more.
Lease a new premise-based system or pay for a cloud hosted solution, on a monthly basis, and fund it out of the savings on your new SIP phone service. Contact us for a complimentary analysis of your current phone service.
