The Ultimate Guide for Choosing the Best Business Phone System for your Unique Business Needs
We’ve got all the important factors to consider when choosing the best business phone service — empowering you to make an informed decision.
Number of employees, phone lines, and handsets
When finding the best phone solution, it all starts with how many phone lines your business requires. Our Business Solutions Advisors are experts at matching your business needs with the best phone system, with the right provider, at the right price.
Bundling a business voice system with your current Internet Service Provider (ISP) would mostly likely be the best solution for a business with 1-3 employees that all require individual phone lines and handsets. This is only in cases where your business requirements are focused on the basic phone features such as 3-way calling, call forwarding, call waiting, caller ID, etc.
Once your business requires any more than 3 phone lines, the most cost effect solution would be to go with a specialized business Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider such as Nextiva, RingCentral, or Vonage Business.
These specialized providers have the most affordable rates, the most features, and in most cases have free equipment options.
Phone features important to your business
No matter how many phone lines your business requires, the business phone features you need may determine which type of provider to go with.
Basic phone features would include the following:
3-way call transfer
Do not disturb
Internet Service Provider (ISP) business phone bundles are perfect for businesses in need of only the basic features, so long as the phone line requirements are no more than 3 max.
The most popular business features today go beyond the basics. Modern businesses focus on collaboration platform suites and unified communication solutions defined in the next section.
Unified communication features
If your business is interested in the ultimate communication experience for employees and customers, then a specialized business Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone provider is the best solution.
Unified communications features:
Work from anywhere on any device
Mobile and desktop applications
Connect via chat, video, and audio
Advanced VoIP conferencing
Messaging, screen sharing, and file sharing
Business text from your mobile device
One-click conference calling
Schedule meetings and assign tasks
Track conversations and team projects
Real-time data with custom reports
Boost efficiency with app integrations
And much more!
Sufficient internet bandwidth
Business Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and unified communication solutions only work with the right amount of internet speed.
This is very specific to each individual business as you must consider VoIP usage plus the bandwidth consumed by additional internet activity and business critical applications.
Typically, a VoIP interaction can consume around 78k per each. This may not seem like much, but you’ll definitely need more bandwidth when you included additional business internet usage.
A good standard guideline would be 1Mbps up and down per each seat.
There are also SD-WAN solutions that can prioritize your business-critical applications to maximize your available bandwidth.

Phone line for emergency services
If you are looking for a business phone solution specifically for emergency services such as an elevator phone or call box, then we recommend you go with a Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) line instead of any service that is dependent on an internet connection.
This of course is to avoid the lost of phone service due to internet outages.
Some telephone communications providers and Local Exchange Carriers (LECs) offer both POTS and VoIP solutions. Landline providers: AT&T, CenturyLink, Frontier, Verizon, etc.
Existing private branch exchange (PBX) system
If your business has already invested in an on-site PBX system to manage phone calls, then from a technology perspective you will need one or a combination of these four types of phones or end points—Analog, Digital, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), or Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).
The PBX was developed to provide large companies a cost reduction in their telecommunications expense by allowing them to handle their own system routing.
Today the most cost effective and productive approach would be a cloud-based PBX solution which is better known as a Unified Communications (UC) solution or Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS).
Most businesses have or are in the process of migrating from analog to IP telephony. This movement is mainly because VoIP offers more cost savings compared to its traditional counterpart.
Switching to a business VoIP solution can save up to 60% in telecommunications monthly cost.
