Tips to Connect your CRM to your Phone System – So YES YOU CAN!

2017 has been the year that businesses have demanded we as Communications consultants must give more Value, more Benefits and not just provide Dial tone. Initially with the Digital economy, many Businesses were looking for cheaper Telephony alternatives than the old faithful PBX system. Cloud emerged as the latest trend in Phones. It was simple and it worked when on a private network but there was restrictions.

I’ve been in this industry for 30 years and i have seen functionality diminish rapidly in real life as opposed to the glossy brochure, when people have gone to Cloud telephony. Its funny how the sales guy said i wouldn’t lose functionality and it would be cheaper of course. The reality is yes it may sort of do a similar job but its not as easy and definitely didn’t save us any money. So Cloud became a reality and with the deep pockets of carriers the marketing machines convinced us all that its of course better.
