What is Hosted PBX?
A Hosted PBX, also known as a Cloud PBX or Virtual PBX, is a cloud-based Private Branch Exchange system which is accessed through an IP network. Hosted PBX’s are managed completely off-site, cutting out the large investment and ongoing maintenance. Instead of having a phone equipment room and knowledgeable staff, business owners are able to manage their phone system through an easy-to-use portal. Leaving the complexities of a traditional PBX system behind.
Service Providers can easily offer a Virtual PBX solution to far more markets and verticals than traditional PBX systems could ever reach. Because of its extreme affordability, a Hosted PBX solution is a lot easier for Small to Medium Businesses to adopt. Which makes selling UC that much easier for the Service Providers.
Benefits of Hosted PBX
Affordability: as stated above, a Virtual PBX is way more affordable than it’s predecessor. Businesses no longer need to invest in costly hardware and software, pay for installation, or manage the system.
Feature-Packed: SMBs now have access to all the greatest features that previously only Enterprises could afford. Features such as conferencing, call recording, call routing, SMS, mobility, analytics, geographic redundancy, and so much more!
Quick Deployment: most businesses have their Hosted PBX setup and running in less than 24 hours. Moreover, because of the ease of usability, businesses can turn on or off features within minutes.
