As the size of a business increases, expenses like phones and voicemail systems for each employee can become grow exponentially. Enter Hosted PBX, which is one way leading enterprises deal with these issues.

Hosted PBX: What It Is and How It Saves Money
A hosted PBX, or private branch exchange, is a cloud-based alternative to traditional phone and voicemail systems. With hosted PBX, your team can use the popular features and functions of any multi-line phone and voicemail system, but needs a smaller financial commitment and a shorter implementation time.
In addition to installation, hosted voicemail can also have ongoing costs due to the maintenance required, but not hosted PBX. Hosted PBX means having a dedicated team of experts to address these problems – instead of having in-house IT employees attempt to troubleshoot issues.
Easy Access & Use
Hosted PBX is made to be intuitive and easy to use, which means your team can begin using a hosted PBX right away from any location. This virtual accessibility allows employees to access messages from home or any remote location, which helps keep downtime to a minimum. It also provides a backup plan in the event of inclement weather or a natural disaster that prevents team members from physically coming into the office.
Valuable Advanced Features
In addition, many hosted PBX services include added business-critical features – like the ability to transfer calls, make conference calls, play hold music or activate an after-hours message at the end of the day.
