Are you running your business on outdated technology? – News from Lake Superior

Teleco advises its customers on the dangers of using a telephone system abandoned by a manufacturer

THUNDER BAY, Sault Ste Marie, ONTARIO ~~~~ December 20, 2021 (LSNews) – December 9, 2021 – The world of managed technology services is all about leveraging powerful technologies and applications to increase productivity. When every employee has superior tools, they are able to do more with less and increase profitability.

However, many companies are increasingly familiar with the concept of planned obsolescence, which is a policy of planning or designing a product with a limited lifespan, so that it will become obsolete, outdated, or not. will no longer work after a while. Telephone systems and data networks are starting to show signs of planned obsolescence and business owners are starting to reexamine their communications infrastructure. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) need to take a close look at their phone systems to assess when obsolescence will hit and what steps they can take to prevent it.

Many legacy phone systems that businesses currently use have been discontinued and are no longer supported by the manufacturer. Essentially, this means that the technology has run its course, has ceased to be manufactured, and is becoming extremely difficult to maintain. In other words, if a business runs its communications infrastructure on outdated technology, when it fails, there will be no one to help fix it. This is a huge risk that business owners take when their customer relationships are on the line. An outdated phone system will eventually fail. Businesses can’t afford to go down and cut off all contact with their customers.

“At Teleco, we educate businesses on the risks associated with abandoned phone systems by manufacturers as well as their options for new technologies,” said Penny Belluz, COO of Teleco. “This is an exciting time in our industry because with the advent of SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), many companies can easily cost justify adopting today’s technology. Plus, these businesses will benefit from apps and features designed to increase profitability, improve employee productivity, and give them a competitive edge – something their outdated phone system can’t do.
