Stuck in a lousy phone contract?

Stuck in a lousy phone contract?

Technology moves fast. Communications technology moves fastest.

Today we think of voice service as Voice over IP, or VoIP, which is essentially where voice traffic runs over data networks.

A mere generation ago in Phone-Years, modest sized organizations relied on "dedicated lines" such as a T1 line or a PRI for scaling commercial phone systems. They were great for business -- about 10+ years ago.

If you have one of these platforms today, you are likely looking to make a shift. The challenge is that many of these contracts have evergreen clauses which trap customers into long term contracts with hefty early-cancellation clauses.

You can think of these systems as the "Time share" trap of the telecommunications industry. But, there is hope.

With some planning and elbow grease, you can incrementally move your organization to the benefits of modern Universal Communications, or UC. UC is the class of technology that you want your business to enjoy -- things like originating and receiving calls from anywhere, cross-campus dialing, shifting calls to your cell phone or to a colleague seamlessly. Even things like text and video messaging fall under the UC label.

navitend offers a variety of telecommunications platforms that work for your organization. Contact us today for a complimentary discussion of how UC can transform your business and help to free you from the burden of legacy telecommunications chains.
