Gain 100% control over equipment configurations.
For companies that require complex telecom solutions integrating door boxes, key strikes, paging and other peripheral devices, on-premise systems are the still the most viable option to pursue. They are considered a safer option over modern hosted voice-over-IP (VoIP) services, in which voice calls are delivered over the data network and can be suceptible to hacking, voice quality issues, and other vulnerabilities. Furthermore, if your data network is down… so is your voice. Because on-premise telephone systems are housed locally at your office, you gain 100% control over configurations on your equipment.
Most on-premise systems require you to purchase equipment, which could be a deterrent to organizations concerned about the initial capital outlay. However, depending on the size of your organization, on-premise systems may be more cost effective than hosted solutions when you factor the monthly fees over time. It’s not uncommon for organizations with more than 15 staff members to find that on-premise systems are a better value versus hosted VoIP.
Organizations that want on-premise telephony, but are concerned about the high capital investment, may find leasing or Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) a smart option. A side benefit of HaaS is that the hardware is refreshed every 36 months, ensuring that your on-premise system’s technology is never outdated.
