Stuck in a PBX Rut?
Is your company stuck in a PBX rut? Does your boss have a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality when it comes to your business phone system?
Do you know in your heart that a more up-to-date VoIP-based system will save your company money, but just haven't taken the leap?
Nobody Knows, The Telecom Trouble I've Seen....
I’ve been in the telecommunications business since 1987. During that time I’ve seen many PBX manufacturers rise and fall. Miraculously, I can think of only one manufacturer who has survived - Mitel.

There are many variables to consider, but in the end, it has been my experience that it's pretty clear in the final analysis which of the business communication solutions works best for your particular environment. Let's get the thinking cap on and proceed.
With the surging popularity of PBX hosted solutions, they are increasingly considered as an alternative to the small business PBX. This four part blog series will provide an in-depth look into the Virtual vs PBX debate.
Like the dilemma of leasing versus buying a car, the decision between Virtual PBX versus IP PBX can be vexing. In this edition, we'll be taking a look leasing vs. owning, paying now or paying later, investment protection and who actually controls your communication.
TeleDynamic has been in the Virtual & Switchvox Premise PBX business, providing telephone system support in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1979. Over the years, our customer's PBX service needs have changed substantially.
