What Are The Best Business Phones?
In a world dominated by the use of technology, Wi-Fi services and round the clock internet access, the traditional wired phone almost seems like a thing of antiquity. Are you still using wired phones?
Interestingly enough for some, wired phones are not a thing of the past. On the contrary; just because you can’t take them with you at home when you finish your working hours that doesn’t mean they are useless.
Let’s make a comparison, shall we? Think about the wired phone at work as being a desktop PC- you don’t take that with you at home, do you? So they all have their purpose.
But why not replace the dusty business phones with… smartphones?
Well, first of all because you don’t want people to reach you when you’re on holiday (even if they somehow do get hold of your personal phone number and still manage to call you on your – portable – smartphone).
Smartphones are not always as practical as a “desktop phone” during business meetings. A lot of business owners from Duluth, Minnesota, Superior or Wisconsin have tried switching to smartphones, but without much luck. They have discovered that the best practice is to balance the use of your smartphone with that of business phones.
A good idea of a lot of managers and CEOs was to purchase business phones – smartphones – for their employees. They are thus encouraging the use of new, practical technology. They are also realizing the importance of collaborating with a professional telephone company for their telephone-related needs. After all, when you are a company (even small to medium sized) asking for telephone services, you are a great client to telephone companies. So you’re rubbing each other’s backs: you by accessing their services and them by offering you various discounts and sales.
But don’t forget: just as you can’t always work on your laptop and require a desktop PC from time to time, you can’t “do it all” without a business phone. Or at least not yet.
Are you still using the “desktop” wired phones? Why or why not?
