The time is right for Panasonic and other legacy phone system users to switch to the cloud

The pandemic has meant the vast majority of businesses have had to make changes in the way they work and the need for flexible working has accelerated the cloud revolution.

If your company has not yet moved to the cloud, now would be a very good time to consider an alternative to your existing system, especially if you are using a Panasonic model. Panasonic has already given notice that they will be exiting the telecoms arena by December 2022 and other companies will be looking to do so too.

With many people now working from home and looking like they will continue to do so in the future, businesses need solutions that easily accommodate this shift and cloud-hosted systems fit the bill.

Another reason for considering your options sooner rather than later is that Openreach’s copper withdrawal programme will see all non-digital lines, such as PSTN and ISDN, switched off by the end of 2025, if not earlier in many areas.

Businesses can still use on-premise phone systems using new fibre internet-based voice services, known as SIP. Others though have chosen to switch to cloud-hosted systems already and are enjoying the associated benefits of doing so, such as free calls, easy management, seamless remote working and much more.

Together, these are very compelling reasons to change your phone system!

The world is changing at an ever-increasing speed and businesses need to change too or get left behind or, worse, end up panic-buying a phone system when theirs breaks and cannot be fixed.
