What is a Cloud-Based Phone System?

Cloud-based telephone systems are a phone service that allows the user to make calls through an internet connection in place of a traditional telephone system. This replaces the need for common telephone wiring.

Why move to a cloud-based telephone? 


Moving to a cloud-based system comes with many advantages for you and your business. From a quick and easy set-up, flexible contracts and reliable connections for your entire business. 


Fast set-up 

As easy as flicking a switch, eliminate the need for lengthy installations and frustrating caps that make telephone systems overly complicated. Going cloud-based means that the need for telephone wiring and large servers are removed, saving you space and money. 


  • No in-person installations
  • No lengthy contracts
  • Bespoke phone plans
