If you are looking around for a cheaper phone system for your business, you might want to consider VOIP. This allows you to use your already-existing internet connection to make phone calls. This can be advantageous because then you do not have to pay for a separate phone system. Voice-over internet used to be considered sort of a new technology, experimental and of questionable quality but that is no longer the case. Now there are many different companies that offer this service and it often comes with many nice features included within the price that a regular phone connection will charge for such as call forwarding, different conference options, call waiting, etc. Of course, every system offers their own packages and benefits, so you would need to do some looking to find out if the price works within your budget.
