  • Do you have user-friendly tools for routing phone calls and find-me/follow-me features?
  • Do you have redundancy and failover processes built in to prevent against any phone system failure for your business?
  • Does your solution provide on-demand training for new users or refreshers for current staff, helping employees to be self-sufficient?
  • If you already work with a Cloud provider, is their system status transparent so you can view and assess issues and wait times when needing support? View an example of one Cloud provider’s transparency
  • Is the phone administration on your end simple to use, (no long lead times to add a new employee or perform moves-adds-changes) so that it frees you up to focus on more important priorities?
