Reduction of CapEx and the flexibility of OpEx

There are many reasons why OpEx costs are more attractive than CapEx. When you purchase something with CapEx dollars, you own it, even if you hate it. You are stuck with it. If you start a new system with OpEx dollars and you are dissatisfied with a particular service, you deal with any contractual obligations and then move on to something else. With a CapEx purchase, companies are responsible for not only the initial outlay, but the ongoing maintenance costs, power consumption, holding costs, etc. of that equipment. When it gets outdated, you have to buy a new one. With UCaaS, that entire burden is handled by someone else.

Unified communications systems in the cloud, or UCaaS, have taken the communications industry by storm with many game-changing benefits. UCaaS offers companies the luxury of zero or light-touch management, enterprise-level features at a low monthly rate, and simple, low-cost startup that most people know about.
