Time to upgrade your PBX?

Legacy Systems?This article by Cora Cloud @ Digium – Modern vs Legacy time to upgrade makes some very valuable points and is well worth a read.


One of the key things to consider when updating your phone system is longevity.  Fido’s Cloud PBX solutions offer great functionality and enhanced longevity, as well as the benefit of a minimal CapEx spend and even reduced OpEx compared to older PBX solutions.


Savings on support, maintenance and call costs are all reasons why your finance department will love the Fido Cloud PBX.  Your staff will prefer Fido’s Cloud PBX as it offers enhanced features and previously unheard of customisation functionality, and as an IT manager you’ll love Fido’s Cloud PBX because “it just works” and requires very little intervention on a day to day basis to make it work.
Adding a new extension is as simple as filling in a web form.  Changing the name on a phone – simple web form … no more having to tall in “the phone guy” to log in and make changes, all of which usually costs more.


We have monthly subscription plans starting from just £15 per month – including handsets, maintenance and support.  Compare that to the cost of your current legacy phone system and you’re already pleasantly surprised.  Then consider the savings by moving to SIP instead of old fashioned ISDN and you suddenly discover that your phone system upgrade could actually save you over £18,000 in the first 3 years!
