For many businesses, telecommunication costs represent a large chunk of operating overhead. Lowering the costs associated with telecom services can save businesses thousands of dollars monthly and improve profitability instantly. Purchasing used phone systems when you open a new business or upgrade systems for your existing business is one way to realize these cost-savings.
Often companies overpay for phone systems and services, whether they are new or used, simply because they are unfamiliar with the industry. Hiring a professional service provider to assist you with your search will increase your upfront costs, but will be highly beneficial in minimizing the cost of the system that your business eventually selects. A professional service provider not only has more leverage negotiating pricing with a wider network of phone service providers, they also have more insights into what system will work best for your business.
With a variety of systems to choose from – digital, VoIP, IP and hosted PBX to name a few – a professional sourcing partner can help you sort through the choices to make a recommendation regarding the level of the system needed to support your business. Rather than overpay for a phone system that you do not need, let a partner guide you through the selection. Based on your business needs, a partner may determine that a used system can effectively support your needs.
A partner well-versed in the industry can make a recommendation that considers your budget, facility location, wiring and internet infrastructure and growth trajectory that considers current and future needs. While this comparison can be time-consuming and frustrating for you, professionals with daily involvement in the industry have the tools and industry insights to help simplify the process.
Whether the output determines that a used phone system or a new phone system is best for your business, engaging someone with telecom expertise is a guaranteed way to save money during and after the procurement process. Speak with a professional today for a free estimate.
