National vs Regional
A lot of business owners are looking for a premium VoIP solution and think the big guys like, RingCentral or 8×8 are the holy grail for providing business class VoIP services. Think again…
While the largest VoIP National VoIP providers have a complete UCaaS feature set running off of Broadsoft, they lack the most crucial aspect for EVERY small to medium business owner in the entire country.
Im talking about support and specialization. What do I mean by this?
Support with National VoIP Providers
Plain and simple…
…there is none. For all of you business owners that have ever had an experience with a company such as RingCentral, 8×8 or Vonage you will know exactly what I am talking about.
Remember when you signed up for their VoIP services and everything seemed to be so perfect and then you were informed that no one will be coming onsite to install? Yea, we know. Or how about when something goes wrong with say your internet access provider or a firewall goes bad? Who do you call? Well, not RingCentral that’s for sure.
Any National VoIP provider can sell all the bells and whistles of a enterprise grade VoIP solution but the real question is what happens when something goes wrong? What happens when there is failure from the internet access providers or hardware onsite? What happens when your door intercom or overhead paging stops working?
Who are you going to get to fix the issue?!
National VoIP Provider Cons:
– No Site Survey
–No Post Installation Network Support
–No World Class Helpdesk
–No Access to Specialists
–Let Your IT Figure It Out (Never Works)
–Burdened With Extra Tech Charges From IT To Fix VoIP Issues
–And the list goes on…
This is why in the past few years the trend has been to settle down with a regional or local VoIP Provider.
