Easy to Install 8x8 Business Voice

generic_300x240I am often amazed at how many people will nod their heads up and down, all day long, saying that they understand how the concepts of “hosted telephony” and “cloud infrastructure” can help save their business money, time and the outside administration costs of high-priced $200/hour phone consultants, only to find out when I pull a business telephone out of my bag, and suggest that we plug the phone into the network jack in the room where we are meeting (at the customer’s premises) and do a demonstration, that they look at me with an incredulous look and exclaim, “You can do that?!?”

Maybe I shouldn’t be so amazed, since so many of our business phone system competitors are unable to do such a demonstration of their technologies in real time with instant provisioning during a customer meeting.  People still assume that their business phone system has to be a complicated, expensive decision that takes 30 days or more to install and provision.

Even more amazing is when we get into the demonstration and show a customer how easy our service is to install and activate. . .the need for that expensive phone consultant goes right out the window.  Take a look at this short video which proves that you, too, can be your own phone system expert:


(and if you do need any help with networking or other setup questions, our experienced, California-based professionals are just a phone call away, and you won’t have to wait on hold forever to talk to one!)
