In the world of email and instant messaging it is easy to forget how much our business relies on good old fashion telephones. While email has become the primary form of communication, nearly all still rely on phone calls to conduct their business. Whether you are a new startup looking for your first business phone system or it is time to replace your existing phone system, the options are plentiful and sometimes confusing.
Unless you are working solo with nothing but a laptop and a cell phone on a beach in Southeast Asia while drinking a margarita (In which case - are you hiring?), your business most likely relies on your phone system. Even though email has become a primary means of communication in most businesses, phone systems still play a vital role.
