Phone bills are often an overlooked aspect of a company's overall operating cost. It's not uncommon for business owners to be out of touch with the unnecessary maintenance fees, hidden charges, and built-in cost inefficiency that drive phone bills to excessive highs.
This is especially true for SMBs moving beyond the 5-10 employee mark. Fortune.com suggests, "Fast-growing firms need to upgrade their infrastructure at three critical points or their teams will get lost in inefficiency: At 10 employees, you need a better phone system... Procrastinating on this will kill your growth. Trust me: Your most aggressive rivals made these changes—last year..."
At OnSIP, we often get inquiries from business owners who admit they hadn't even looked at their phone bills in over a year, only now coming to the realization that they're losing hundreds or even thousands of dollars a month on solutions that fall under the 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' threshold. But with modest research, they can find new phone system solutions at substantially lower total cost of ownership with more functionality than they have today.
