What is a Hosted Phone System?

A hosted phone system, also known as a cloud phone system, is a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) solution that allows businesses to make and receive calls over the internet instead of traditional phone lines. Unlike conventional phone systems, hosted systems are managed and maintained by a third-party provider, in this case, INTEK Technology Solutions, leveraging the robust SkySwitch platform.

Why Choose INTEK’s Hosted Phone System?

1. Cost Efficiency

Traditional phone systems often come with high setup and maintenance costs. With INTEK’s hosted phone system, there’s no need for expensive hardware or complex installations. Our solution reduces upfront costs and offers predictable monthly fees, making it a budget-friendly option for businesses of all sizes. Additionally, because our system utilizes the internet or your cell service for calls, there’s no need for traditional analog phone lines or PRI circuits. This shift can significantly reduce your monthly telecom expenses, freeing up budget for other critical business needs.

2. Scalability

As your business grows, so do your communication needs. INTEK’s hosted phone system allows you to easily add or remove lines and features, ensuring your phone system scales with your business without significant investment in new infrastructure.

3. Reliability and Uptime

Our hosted phone system is built on the reliable SkySwitch platform, ensuring high uptime and minimal disruptions. With advanced failover capabilities and multiple data centers across the U.S., your business stays connected even during unexpected outages.
