Abandoning your current communication system and replacing it with an entirely new one is a very bold step to take. However, the benefits of switching to the V1 VoIP cloud hosted PBX systems far outweigh your concerns because most of the issues you’ve heard of that give you concern are actually NOT TRUE. Here are a few of the myths regarding cloud hosted PBX systems that V1 VoIP is happy to myth bust up!
1. Hosted PBX Systems are Really Expensive

But V1 VoIP cloud hosted PBX systems are actually affordable and provide business owners with considerable savings. Regular PBX systems have to be continuously maintained, which increases the overall maintenance cost column, so switching over to cloud hosted PBX systems is actually the more long term inexpensive choice.
2. The Voice Quality is Disappointing
Fast broadband internet have allowed voice calls over the internet to flow smooth as silk. In addition to the impeccable quality of internet, it has also ended up being cheaper for small and medium sized businesses. If businesses are still experiencing a degradation of voice quality, a simple increase to the overall speed is all that’s needed to better the call quality.
3. Our System Can Be Breached
To remove the cloud of misconceptions; cloud security has turned out to be virtually unbreachable thanks to its improved security standards and protocols. In fact, premise based solutions are more susceptible to virtual threats since they are often unmanaged, and since not everyone keeps an eye on them 24 hours a day, these systems can easily be breached.
4. My Business is too Small for Cloud Hosted PBX
Small and medium sized businesses are putting their communications system on the cloud because it affords them tremendous flexibility and efficiency. Cloud hosted PBX solutions are provided to small and medium sized businesses because they do not have sufficient amounts of capital to build their own custom based machines.
