When you upgrade your office phone system to a modern VoIP PBX, you have to decide whether you want an on-premise or cloud-based system. Most businesses go with a cloud service, but each approach has its advantages. You need to understand each one’s strengths to make an informed decision. When you go with the 3CX PBX system, you can choose a cloud service or use onsite equipment.
Most customers prefer a cloud VoIP service. It’s scalable, cost-effective, and easy to manage. Businesses that use it see these advantages:
Setting up your own PBX hardware takes more effort, but it can pay for itself. People with strong IT experience won’t find it hard to manage. Here are some reasons for going with onsite PBX hardware:
The larger a business is, the more easily it can benefit from an onsite PBX. The cost of the equipment, software, and management is spread over a larger number of phones. Larger businesses are more likely to have complex needs that a cloud provider can’t easily satisfy. A business with fifty employees or fewer is normally better off with a cloud PBX.
While the cloud is the default choice for most, a business that needs the extra control and flexibility of an in-house system shouldn’t be afraid to go ahead with it. With 3CX, you can choose a cloud-based or on-premise PBX system. On the cloud, you can choose from well-known providers such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and others. In your data centre, you can use standard computing equipment or set up a virtual server. Either way, you get a broad range of features and many software choices.
