When making a business case for switching to a small business PBX system that works with the power of VoIP and the cloud, you may need some supportive evidence to convince the leaders of the company that it’ll be worth their time and the investment. The good news is, that there’s no shortage of information to showcase the enhanced productivity and ROI that switching to a small business PBX can provide. Here are five compelling figures:
1. Small businesses switching to a VoIP solution reduce the cost of their local calling expenses by up to 40%, and international calling savings averages 90%
Without VoIP, companies are required to use plain old telephone service (POTS) lines, which come with a hefty price tag for every minute spent on the phone. Those minutes add up quickly and typically result in a steep monthly bill, especially in the case of international calls. With VoIP, calls are made using the company’s internet connection, which removes the need for those costly POTS lines.
2. VoIP can cut startup costs for new businesses by up to 90%
With no need for phone lines and expensive and bulky traditional phone systems and hardware that can rapidly increase startup expenses, the cost savings are immediate.
3. Businesses see an average savings of 50-75% after switching to VoIP
Although this can vary depending on the organization, changing to a small business PBX system with VoIP provides an average cost saving of 50-75% on traditional phone systems. Additionally, 99.99% of businesses reported at least some savings after making the switch.
4. VoIP saves an average of 32 minutes per day per employee of productivity time
In today’s workforce, businesses are experiencing a tremendous increase in worker mobility and productivity, so the business phone system should encourage and motivate these activities. A cloud-based unified communications system combines a suite of tools all within a single interface. That means there’s no need to run numerous applications just to hold a conference call or collaboration session.
5. 64% of those switching to VoIP were able to implement it within 30 days
One of the biggest fears among small business leaders is costly problems during the transition to a new phone system. However, most companies are finding the transition period to be short and relatively uneventful, with 64% reporting they are up and running within a month and another 22% saying they were operational on the new solution within 1 to 3 months.
