Are you working remotely?

Good communication is the lifeline of modern businesses and now that many of us are working from home and with the beginning of the ISDN Switch Off, we highly recommend switching to a hosted/cloud phone system.

Having a simple to use platform, that is accessible anywhere, anytime and on any device, will not only improve communications but also organise communications across multiple technologies, in to one central platform.

In simple terms, a hosted telephone system is one that sits in a network data centre (known as the Cloud) rather than at your premises. Users manage the system through a web interface or mobile app and make calls over the service, through their data connection. Hosted telephony means you no longer need to maintain and upgrade on site, or over multiple sites and removes costly long-term maintenance. An easy-to-use web portal provides you with a dashboard giving you convenient access to information, such as call history, voicemail and recorded calls. Personalised settings can be set quickly and easily, ensuring your calls are handled effectively.

While 2025 may still sound a long way off, the phase out of the ISDN Switch Off has already begun, meaning BT will not install any new ISDN systems or services. One of the significant benefits of switching to a hosted phone system, is that with most employees now working from home, remote working is quick and easy to set up, wherever there is an internet connection. You can make and receive business landline calls, anywhere, as if you were in the office.
