When it comes to choosing the right phone system for your Denver business, there’s plenty to consider. You’ll want to keep in mind what kind of technology your office will be using, how much of your business is conducted over the Internet, your rate of growth, and more.
We’ve put together this helpful guide of business phone system options to explain the different types of phones.
What is a Traditional Landline Phone System?
A traditional landline system is supported by a phone company. These analog systems require that you use on-premises PBX hardware in order to use extension functions on your phone systems.
The biggest reason to have at least one landline for your business is that landlines are generally reliable. Depending on your location, cell service can often be problematic. Even with VoIP, there is the possibility of Internet outages, service outages, and even power outages. A disruption in landline service is far less likely, and you will be available when your customers need to call.
For many new business owners, this may seem like a simple and straightforward option. But, a landline phone system can be a headache when it comes to setting the system up, especially since many phone providers are phasing out these services in favor of wireless and cloud-based phone systems.
Analog connections also limit the types of new features that service providers can introduce. Most carriers only offer basic features like call waiting, caller ID, voicemail, call blocking. Landline phone wiring can be maintenance-heavy, and take up valuable office space.

What is a Cloud Phone System?
A cloud PBX system, or Hosted PBX, is based on Cloud Computing technology, where data is stored and transferred over the Internet, rather than on a computer or piece of hardware that a business owns.
A cloud-based business phone system offers enterprise-grade calling features, it improves reliability and enables mobile users.
Hosted PBX also lets you keep your existing business phone numbers, a big plus for business owners. By reducing your business phone services bills, your savings quickly add up over time. And, cloud-based voice services keep your mobile workforce productive with voicemail-to-email, forwarding to mobile phones, mobile apps, and more.

What is a VoIP Phone System?
VoIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol. VoIP is a business communications technology that allows for making and receiving calls over the internet. VoIP phones do not use traditional twisted pair copper wire. The phone is connected using the same broadband internet connection that plugs into a computer or router.
By running your phone service over the same Internet you use for your other business devices, VoIP systems provide features like automated attendants and computer integration that previously required large-scale PBX hardware.
These systems can even send voicemails to email inboxes for easy record-keeping. While you need to have a strong, consistent Internet connection to run these phone systems, they have many benefits that can allow your phone system to grow with your business.
