A Good Phone System is a Must for Any Business

When I decided to open a shop to sell my hand-made clothing and accessories, I knew I would learn a lot of lessons along the way, since I don't have a business background. One mistake I made when opening my shop was having just a single phone line. I really didn't think I needed an intricate phone system, as I just have a small shop. One day a customer came in my shop and told me she had been trying to call my shop for days, but she never received an answer. She told me the others had been calling too, and the rumor was that I had closed my shop. I learned that my single line was leading to unhappy customers and even rumors that I went out of business! I then invested in a good multi-line phone system and haven't missed a call since. Enjoy my blog!

Need A Commercial Phone Package? What To Ask The Wireless Companies

If you currently have a Verizon, Sprint, or other cell phone account and you are looking at options to get a business package, instead of just your own personal plan, there are some things you want to look into. If you will have employees using a lot of data and making a lot of calls, it's important to come up with the most affordable solution. Here are some of the things that you want to consider going over with an account reseller when you start to get info and costs.

Best Phone Purchase Plans

You need to know how many phones you will need, how much of a discount you can get when you buy them in bulk, and what type of discount you can get on service plans. If you will be giving the company your business for multiple phone lines, and you have a lot of employees with phones, you want to be sure that you can get the phones serviced or replaced at a reasonable cost.

Selling and Transferring Numbers

If you have numbers that you want to have transferred across companies, or  numbers that you don't need and can be sold, you'll have to meet with the phone companies and ask what it's going to cost, or what they can do  to be sure that you can keep the same numbers. You want to have the number that you or your employees are already using.

Reliability Information

You have to be 100 percent positive that the company you chose will have reliable service. There are some companies that share towers, or that don't have access to as many towers, and they offer a lower rate but they won't have the reliable service that you are looking for. This needs to be one of your main concerns, because if people can't get a hold of you then you won't have a business.

If you are shopping around for a commercial phone plan and you will have many different lines, you want to read the fine details of the contracts, and you want to be sure that you are getting a good price with reliable service. Make sure that you find out what it will take or cost to get all of your lines moved over, or at least the most important ones. Shop around and sign the deal that will be the most practical for your type of business.
