With all of the talk about cloud and hosted phone systems these days, there are fewer conversations about on premise solutions. However, there are still some cases where moving to a hosted environment is not in a business’ best interest. We’ve compile a brief list of a few benefits on premise communication systems offer. Remember, every business operates a little differently and it’s best to sit down and evaluate your needs to ensure you are making the right decision.
- Local Survivability – If the internet fails, you can still operate locally with an on premise phone system because it is not reliant upon the data network for your voice communications. This allows mission critical calls to still be placed.
- Security Concerns via Banking or HIPAA Regulations – Many organizations who have regulatory compliance concerns look to on premise solutions with a dedicated connection to prevent hackers from accessing their voice and network.
- Phased Migration and Tying in an Old System – If you are looking to change from an old system to a new system with a phased approach, then you would likely need to stay on premise. That way you can utilize your existing analog circuits or other equipment that needs to connect to a physical box.
