Virtual Lunch and Learn: Telephone Systems - From Landline to Cloud Solutions

Telephony experts talk about landlines and cloud solutions, making the switch and what questions to ask when designing a new system.

Telephone technology has grown in leaps and bounds since operators sat at a switchboard connecting calls. The shift to cloud solutions and the ability to utilize internet broadband means that we can share more than just voice communications via these new Unified Communication Systems. Everything from video conferencing, file sharing, text messages, and yes, even faxes, can now be done with ease on these new platforms. 

The technology helps businesses support a remote or hybrid workforce, streamlines and improves customer service and includes valuable tools to optimize business operations.

Hear from three industry experts as they talk about the differences between landlines and cloud solutions, what it takes to make the switch and what questions you should be asking when looking to design the communication system that makes sense for your business, and budget.
