On Tuesday, November eighth, I returned to 580 WCHS’s Ask the Expert radio show with Dale Cooper to talk to the audience about phone systems and telecommunications. I used this opportunity to discuss just how important phone systems are to a business and ways you can actually save money by allowing Advantage Technology to assess your systems and install a new one.
The show started off by asking the simple question, “What is the single most important piece of technology in your office?” Dale responded by saying it was probably his computer, just like many of us would assume. But what would work be without a phone? As technology evolves, organizations are straying from effective ways to communicate and leaning towards new ways to talk with clients. We must remember that a good telephone system, communication with colleagues and excellent customer service all go hand in hand.
Phones systems that have been around for decades, are considered legacy systems, meaning if there is a malfunction, it is difficult to find the parts necessary to fix them because they are no longer manufactured. Fortunately, we work with equipment brokers, salvagers and dealers that get you the parts you need. So, even if you are dealing with legacy systems, there’s a good chance we can service them.
Or, here is an even better idea: If you call us at Advantage Technology and buy a brand new phone system or any software or IT equipment before December 31st, you will be entitled to the Section 179 tax deduction. This newly reformed law works by allowing a business to write off, in the same year, purchases that quickly depreciate, like computers, software, and phone systems.
Also, with things like vendor trade-ins and negotiations with carriers we can save you a lot of money.
To get crystal clear call quality, it is important to have a complete understanding of telecommunications, and not just network administration. At Advantage Technology, we have an entire team dedicated solely telecommunications. Give us a call at 866-222-0653 and we will work with you to get the lowest monthly cost and provide you with information regarding the best phone system for your company.
