Choosing a good Hosted PBX service provider is a task that requires thorough investigation of your requirements. You have to match up your needs with the products offered by a particular Hosted PBX service provider so that you can get best out of your telephony system. In the business telephony market, you can see a great competition between the Hosted PBX service providers but there are aspects in which one dominates the other, but none of them provides the same level of reliability, features and cost savings. Some of the providers have simply fabricated a little PBX functionality onto the front of a sub system while others are trying out their hand by pushing the IP
technology into the traditional system but lack the core knowledge of PBX VOIP. Hence, before implementing a Hosted PBX and before finalizing the apt Hosted PBX service provider, you should select amongst Enterprise and Residential plan.
This choice is powered by the fact that whether you need the Hosted PBX service for your home use or for your business needs. If you require the system for your residence then you should contact a Hosted PBX provider that gives the service plan for the home usage but if you are willing to implement the Hosted PBX system in for your business, then you should contact the service providers that serve the business communication needs of enterprises.
After this step, you should make a list of the providers that you consider promising enough to satisfy you. You can even call their contact numbers or drop an email that you want to know about the services they provide and check on their subscription plan. You can also ask for a rough estimate of the total cost involved in set-up and usage of the Hosted PBX system. Thereafter, you can scale the providers on the basis of total price charged, whether or not the hidden fee is charged, features you get in that price, emergency access is available or not. And, most importantly, does your provider give free Technical support. Some providers charge hidden fee as well. You need to beware of them.
