Why Are Law Firms Choosing Cloud Phone Systems?
In the past few years we have seen a number of firms of Solicitors come to us looking for a flexible and future-proof telephone system. Ultimately the decision is simple, they all opt for a Hosted telephony solution, here are some of the main reasons why.
Cloud phone solutions offer companies of all industries total flexibility and control over where, when and how the user can utilise calling features. This means the telephone system can easily be deployed over multiple offices, on the road, and from home, at any time.
Multiple users can be added or removed whenever necessary, and all of this is controlled in an easy to use online portal. There is no limit on the number of users which can be added, so a hosted telephone system like VSL Hosted Complete, is truly scalable and will grow with the business.
It is no secret that the legal sector in particular, struggle with technology adoption. Generally speaking, this industry is among the last to take on new technologies, something which could improve their productivity and help them to earn more money!

That’s why many choose hosted telephony products like VSL Hosted Complete. With no upfront costs, you simply pay for what you need, as you go, making this option hugely cost-effective.
