Why Are They Still Popular in Today’s World?
There are several reasons why an on-premise phone system is still popular in today’s market. The first is simply down to costs whereby the vast majority of hosted phone systems charge a monthly subscription fee based on a per user licence so you never own the equipment and are always paying a monthly fee which can prove very expensive when you have a large number of users.
Another reason why companies stay with an on premise phone system is based around the control and flexibility that they have when integrating 3rd party applications such as Contact Centre Software, Call Recording with Bloomberg, and Trading Platforms by allowing the end customer to choose who they want to partner with rather than being dictated to by the hosted telephony service provider.
The ‘trojan horse’ Strategy
Many organisations are adopting the ‘Trojan horse’ strategy, as a cost-effective way to access the new IP telephony world without the need to throw out all the legacy TDM phone systems and handsets. The ‘Trojan horse’ option protects the capital outlay on hardware and software on the legacy phone system while providing access to new IP applications such as voice to email, mobile twinning, and various collaboration tools.
