Click through for six features you should consider when planning your next business phone system, as identified by Compare Business Products.

There are numerous features offered with business phone systems that can help you manage your business’ day-to-day needs efficiently.  To begin, you should consider what type of phone system will meet your business needs. Small home businesses may only require a basic analog phone system with limited features, while a larger business would likely require a more involved IP phone system. Once the decision has been made on what phone system is best for the business, you can then decide on the features you want to include.

Phone features read like a laundry list of choices and there are bound to be some that may help your business that get overlooked. While there are hundreds of available features, vendors estimate that businesses only use about 10 percent of those. When deciding on a feature, ease of use should be the top priority. While voice mail and caller ID have become essential features for any business phone system, there are many other features that can be just as vital to your business.

Compare Business Products has compiled a list of features you should consider when planning your next phone system.
