If you own a small business that’s been passed down through generations of your family, chances are that it’s pretty important to you. You probably have a reputation in town for being reliable and for charging reasonable prices, part of the reason customers keep coming back to you.
Unfortunately, the economic climate is a bit unstable at the moment and you can’t always be sure what your revenue will be from month to month. But even in the most financially trying times the business means too much to you personally to ever sell it—and you know business always picks back up eventually and a cloud based phone service can help.
One way to ensure you’ll be able to pass the company down to the next generation is to adopt a cloud-based phone service. A cloud communications phone application puts all the functionality of an enterprise system in your mobile phone. That means you can go meet with new clients or suppliers and still be sure you won’t miss a crucial business call. You can also have your voicemails transcribed and sent directly to your email so you can read an important message during a meeting without leaving the room.
Furthermore, with a cloud-based phone service you can slash your communications expenses because you don’t have to worry about hardware installation or equipment maintenance; the entire system is maintained over the Web by a third-party vendor, so you can start seriously thinking about ripping out your legacy wire-based system.
A family business is about more than making money. It’s about a connection that lasts for generations and a feeling of pride an entire family can share. Cloud communications can help make sure that connection remains unbroken, far into the future.
