This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Five Part Series on Switching to VoIP

Previously, we’ve discussed the options that are available to you for a business VoIP system and what you should consider before switching to VoIP. Part 4 of this series, on migrating your business to VoIP, is about what happens after you’ve decided that a VoIP system is right for your business.


Getting Things in Motion

You’ve carefully considered a VoIP system and chosen a potential provider for your new business VoIP system.  It’s now time for a VoIP engineer to visit your office and evaluate what needs to be done in order for your business to migrate over to VoIP.


The Evaluation

During the engineer’s visit, they will take note of how your network is arranged and also learn about the logistics of your business.  This is an opportunity for you and your provider to establish the framework for designing a business VoIP system that caters to your business’ particular needs.


Designing Your System

After the visit to your office, your future provider will factor in the technical and practical aspects of your business’ arrangement (including whether your business has multiple office locations) and work out all of the behind-the-scenes details.  Your future provider will  then contact you with their recommendations for rolling out your new business VoIP system.  On a side-note, one great aspect of a hosted VoIP system is that you can always add, modify or remove features at any point in the future.


Bringing Your Business VoIP System to Life

Once you’ve approved the plan, your business VoIP provider will start the process of installing and setting up your new business VoIP system.  Then, before you know it, your office will be humming along with the latest technology in telecommunications.
