There is no doubt that cloud based solution delivers numerous benefits to businesses of all sizes but what about the benefits of cloud based telephony? Have you moved from analog system to digitization?

Most large-scale organizations have migrated to a PBX system but still juggles between whether to keep on-premise PBX or switch to a hosted VOIP solution. This is an important decision for companies, considering the amount of time spent communicating with staff and clients and the ROI from the same.
