It really depends. The age and type of phone system you have in place right now and the growing needs of your office will all be factors. It might seem hard to believe that installing a new phone system can save you money, but several of our customers have found out for themselves that this can be the case!
Like with any office equipment purchase, it is assumed there is a finite lifespan. That’s one of the reasons you can deduct the depreciation of your equipment over time. So no equipment purchase is expected to last forever. But some treat their phone system that way.
How long have you been working with the same phone system? If you have an outdated contract with a service provider along with an outdated system, you could be spending thousands more per year (or month!) than if you upgraded to a more cost-efficient model.
Even if you wouldn’t save a huge amount every month, how much are you paying — both figuratively and literally — for the errors and breakdowns of your current system? When you factor in employee productivity and time, customer satisfaction, and the actual cost of repairs, the total adds up quickly if your system frequently has problems.
But What About the Cost of a Phone System?
Some businesses can’t afford an upfront expense for a phone system, which we understand. If it makes sense for your business, Stewart Telecommunications can offer a monthly payment plan so your business can get the phone system it needs now and spread the cost over several months. We can also handle repairs for NEC, Avaya, Panasonic, Nortel, Toshiba, and Sprint equipment.
