What is a Hosted PBX?

A Hosted PBX is a cloud-based, virtual PBX phone system that delivers secure, reliable phone service for a business or organization through your Internet connection instead of a privately managed call controller or server that you own and operate yourself.


Here’s how it works:



With hosted PBX, your business can maintain the connections necessary to flourish in a constantly evolving business landscape. The idea is simple: provide businesses with the communications features you need while eliminating the expense of unwieldy and costly equipment. Avoid spending time and money monitoring an on-site PBX system. Skip the ongoing costs of maintaining your system yourself. Streamline your business’s telecommunications process—discover the advantages of a hosted PBX.


Enjoy the freedom of the cloud


With a hosted PBX solution, you don’t need to physically store and maintain PBX equipment—everything is in the cloud.

And therein lies the true benefit of a cloud PBX: you enjoy the newest features faster and stay up-to-date without ever overhauling infrastructure. With VoIP hosted PBX, you don’t have to worry about the ever-changing world of tech—your business will always be on top of the latest updates and release versions automatically.

Unify your workforce and stay connected


Business happens everywhere, not just in the office—so why keep your phone system there? Unexpected outside factors may prevent employees from making it into the office on any given day. But the foundation of your business isn’t the physical space in which it’s located. It’s the sum of its parts—the people who make it happen.

In short, a hosted virtual PBX is a safety net—fire, flood or a simple down power line won’t stop business as usual. Take the power from the power lines and put it in the cloud.
