Migrate telephony providers and keep your existing handsets
There’s a saying that goes, “Not all phones are created equal”. Now, that may be true, but since replacing handsets is one of the costlier elements of any phone system investment, you ideally want to be able to hold onto your investment for as long as possible.
Businesses often stick with their current phone system providers because of limited CapEx or budget – even when it hurts the company’s progress. They accept poor service, lack of functionality, expensive support and inflexible systems, all because the narrative is: “If you want the latest and greatest technology, you need to buy new handsets.”
Suppose you invest thousands (or hundreds of thousands) in handsets. You’re going to want your money’s worth if you can’t evolve without changing hardware. Your business would be stuck with an inadequate phone system or phone provider that has failed to deliver on the agreed service levels and support standards.
In the industry, we call this vendor-lock in. It makes it extremely difficult for companies to move providers because it would mean replacing a component that typically carries the highest capital investment – the handset.
Mainstream phone system providers, especially at enterprise level and those with proprietary technology, insist that you purchase new handsets, specifically ones they manufacture and deliver with their solution.
We’ve seen too many businesses in desperate need of a better telephony solution trapped with an outdated, inflexible and expensive phone system. They are told that their handsets cannot handle the new technology or that it’s too costly to upgrade their handsets with the latest technology. So, we at 101VOICE said, “No more!”
