Selecting the right business phone depends on how many phone lines you’ll need for your employees, how many calls they’ll be making on the average workday, and which type is the most cost-effective for your existing budget. You have the choice between a standard landline phone system or a voice-over-Internet protocol system. Landline systems are still among the most reliable business phone options, and you’ll need to get one set up by contacting your local or regional phone company. Due to the rising costs of enterprise level landline systems, a number of businesses are starting to opt for VoIP systems due to the lower monthly cost.

A VoIP system runs over an Internet protocol, and it comes with all the features and tools of a traditional landline. VoIP systems are also easy to configure and set up, although their main disadvantage is that they have to rely on your company’s Internet connection. An unreliable connection with frequent outages will mean that your phone system will go down as well, so investing in strong signal strength is a must.
If you opt for a VoIP system, you’ll also need to decide whether to rent your phone equipment from your service provider or buy it outright. Buying the equipment comes with the option to self-host your VoIP service, which costs more but affords you more flexibility.
