For a company to thrive, its communication systems need to be optimized to handle the demands of today’s business environment. But despite rapid advances in computing technology and telecommunications, the traditional business phone system has remained essentially unchanged since the 1980s. The office desk phone can no longer provide businesses with the flexibility to match the requirements of the 21st century.
