In our experience, when people talk about cheap telephone systems installation, they are referring to potentially one of three different things:
- the purchase of a low-cost telephone system;
- installing a system as quickly and cheaply as possible;
- doing the two things together on as low a cost basis as possible.
It may be worth examining each of these in turn while, of course, recognising the enormous pressures in today’s economy to keep costs down.
Low-cost telephone systems
There are a wide number of business telephone systems available in the marketplace, occupying a very significant price spectrum.
Whenever speaking about business telecoms and a cheap telephone systems installation, it is important to keep in mind that if your telephone system is constantly causing you difficulties or is unable to support the direction of your business and its future growth, then you may be unimpressed by excuses and justifications based around the fact that it was a low-cost solution.
With business telecoms there is, at least to some extent, a tendency to get a quality and capability that is related to the price you pay.
Going for the very cheapest telephone systems you can find may be a mistake in the long-term and that is why we tend to favour solutions from quality manufacturers such as Siemens business telephones.
Installing systems cheaply
The ultimate in cheap telephone systems installation may appear to be a DIY approach.
Theoretically, this is perfectly possible.
Yet there are some dangers – telephone systems installation is rarely a case of simply running few cables around and pressing the start button.
Your telephone system needs to be designed and installed, taking into account things such as technical configurations, the topology and prevailing health and safety legislation. Professional installers will also be careful not to do the equivalent of painting themselves into a corner, by taking steps such as leaving room for potential future expansion.
We have extensive experience of telephone systems maintenance in Kent and the South East and we know how difficult it can be at times to support and maintain a system that was not professionally installed.
It may not be a risk worth taking.
Managed cost purchase and implementation
We understand the business pressures that our clients are under and we will always work to try and find cost-effective solutions for their requirements.
Yet in the 21st century, virtually all forms of businesses are being constructed and grown around a core of business telecoms technology.
The requirements of no two businesses are identical and a cheap telephone systems installation that may have been suitable for someone else may not prove to be suitable for you. That is why we take very seriously, the business of understanding your requirements and matching an appropriately cost-attractive solution to them.
