What is the Process to Buy a Hosted Phone System for a Business Owner with Less than 10 Phones?
Hi, my name is Eric with Tele-Data Solutions. Are you a very busy small business owner or manager with less than 10 phones at your office?
If yes, this is for you. Over the last couple years, my days have been busy meeting with small businesses helping them evaluate phone system technologies.
We created this video to help save you time and to understand what is needed in order to acquire a VOIP/Cloud based phone system.
There are 5 quick steps in our process to acquire a hosted phone system.
- Determine if you are currently in a phone line contract. There will be early termination fees if you port out your phone #s early.
- The only way to know for sure is to notify your carrier provider and get the answer in writing
- Here’s a tip, to save yourself time, scan the current phone statement to your potential VoIP provider, if it is us, we will find out for you
- Acquiring a new hosted phone system takes time. The turnaround time for an installation date is typically 2-8 weeks. This is determined by 3 parts – the actual port date for the phone #s, the installation schedule for installing your phone hardware and what works for your business. If you need a phone system immediately because your system is down we can rush install the new Phones.
- Step 3 is important. We will recommend a 30-minute educational webinar to explain the new phone and software features, walk you through the installation and training process works and cover investment/budget costs.
- If you are interested in moving the process along, Loop in your trusted IT computer consultant with us to avoid technical surprises or problems due to internet, wiring or IT hardware configurations. A conference call/email will suffice.
- After the steps above, you will be provided with a proposal. Being local to you in NJ, we are able to visit on-site if you prefer that, so we can see your office first hand and answer any other questions with you face to face.

Success to me is leaving my customers with a genuine feeling that I helped improve their business and was able to lay the foundation for a long lasting relationship to come. I enjoy oldies music, golf, lifting, the New York Yankees and Giants, and a good beach day. “If you can dream it, then you can achieve it.
