8x8 Express - The Best Small Business Phone Service For Your Emerging Business

8x8 Express - emerging business

Introducing 8x8 Express, a complete business phone system that takes just minutes to set up.

An emerging small business in its early stages of development is faced with many challenges. In my experience, business leaders of emerging businesses are usually occupied with trying to make the business cash-flow positive, cutting costs, and securing funding. In addition, they need to focus on creating a sales strategy and implementing a plan for their product or service. This leaves very little time to strategically focus on communication technology.

In my opinion, an emerging or small business cannot afford to look like one. Smaller businesses and independent workers need to strike the fine balance of presenting themselves in a way that is polished and professional but doesn’t exhaust their finances. That’s easier said than done and more often than not results in compromising on quality or cost. At 8x8, we’re tired of seeing entrepreneurs, emerging organizations, and consultants settle for less than they deserve, which is why we are launching 8x8 Express, a complete business phone system that takes just minutes to set up.

Understand the Needs of Your Emerging Business

There are some crucial choices to make when deciding on the best business phone services for your emerging small business. For instance, do you need a voice-over-Internet-protocol (VoIP) solution or is voice communication crucial to your business operations? Does your emerging business consist of a large team, several customer support representatives, or is it just you managing a freelance operation? What does your budget for communications look like?

Emerging businesses need to be agile with their decisions; they need to match or beat their competition in terms of customer accessibility and convenience; they need to leverage systems and deploy processes that make work happen easier and faster.

Gain an Edge with the Best Small Business Phone Service

Your emerging small business could be very different from others. You might be an artisan in rural Maine, selling your products all over the globe, a three-person tech startup in Austin, or a Marketing Team of 20 in Wisconsin. Your requirements in a phone solution could be very different from each other. You need a complete business phone system that is customizable as well as scalable.

With 8x8 Express, you can run your business with confidence knowing that you get the same communication tools used by large enterprises.
