Solutions for your business phone system

As businesses embrace new technologies with data-hungry applications and a shift to mobile and home working it’s no surprise that telecom, data and voice spend can form up to 20% of an annual IT budget. The good news is that continuous emerging technology is creating significant opportunities in telecoms supply-markets to reduce your costs. But this can result in a huge undertaking for those responsible for IT and Telecoms.
 
As well as dealing with new technologies, businesses must also contend with the major changes announced by BT.  From 2025, BT will be switching off their ISDN and PSTN services. This brings an end to the use of analogue phone lines, moving all  communication technology online. We estimate that over 2 million UK businesses will need to invest in alternative methods of data transmission to maintain their communication coverage.
