1. How fast is your company growing?
You may only need a handful of extensions to right now, but think of your company’s future needs. Has your number of employees seen growth? Have you recently acquired new accounts or clients that will increase the staffing needs at your establishment? What are your company’s own goals for growth or expansion? Considering your future needs when investing in a new system may cost a marginal amount more at the onset, but will save you bundles in the long run because the system will be able to handle your company’s growth easily with minimal additional setup.
2. What is your budget?
You want the best for your business, but keep in mind that the costs associated with this can become quite high. We understand that companies want to save money where they can, so consider some cost-saving alternatives such as trading in your current system for a discount on your new one, or using an IP-based system that uses your internet connection instead of phone lines, thereby making long-distance fees a thing of the past.
3. Do you have other needs that aren’t being met?
Consider other networking solutions that your company might want to implement. For example, you may have thought about integrating the computer system in your office or setting up an office LAN network. Or perhaps you’ve begun to realize the need for a surveillance system in your office or building. If so, think about having all of these set up at the same time to save both time and money on your systems upgrade.
4. What is unique about your business?
Every company is unique, so thinking about the things that make your business different could help identify ways to make it more productively efficient. Perhaps a new set of communications software that is able to run full reports would help with decision analysis. Or perhaps you have sections of your building that are off limits to general patrons or staff. Bringing up these unique concerns during initial consultations will help ensure that you get the right system for your company to succeed and grow.
