What is a cloud phone system?

Essentially, a cloud phone system frees you (and your business) from being tied to a telecom company.

Your cloud service provider maintains data centres that house the phone system. When you sign up with a provider (like Dialpad), they manage everything, and you can start making phone calls through the Internet without setting up any onsite hardware.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is the technology that makes it all possible. Through VoIP, voice signals can be transmitted over an Internet connection instead of through traditional phone lines.

Why choose a cloud phone system for business communications?

Before the cloud phone system became popular, companies used traditional phone systems like PBX (Private Branch Exchange) and landline desk phones.

As a phone solution, PBX has a few serious weaknesses. Not only does it require businesses to buy expensive hardware up front, it also forces businesses to estimate the number of users and calls they would need in the future and make purchases and infrastructure decisions with that maximum in mind.

Unsurprisingly, this estimate wouldn’t always match up with actual business needs, and companies would often have to overbuy in fear that they might hit capacity too early and have to put their business on pause—not good. This is where cloud-based phone systems come in.

The best cloud-based phone systems can be set up in minutes. With Dialpad, you can add phone lines, create ring groups, and set your business hours in your online account in real-time. It's one of the biggest perks of having a cloud solution, and you can't do that with a PBX phone system (which takes days or weeks to do something similar).

If you have contact centre teams and need more than just a cloud phone system, Dialpad has a cloud contact centre platform that's truly integrated into its phone system. One login, one account, one user experience.

Use your own devices

Every cloud phone system should come with a desktop and mobile phone app. Dialpad’s apps work across iOS, Android, PC, and Mac—and even works on web browsers so you can make calls from your computer or cell phone. No more provisioning desk phones (unless you want to.)

    Cloud phone system FAQs

    What is a cloud-based phone system?

    A cloud-based phone system (or hosted system) is a phone system that allows users to make and take calls over the internet. Cloud phone systems use VoIP phone technology to facilitate calls over an IP network.

    Unlike traditional PBX systems that are deployed and managed on your business premises, cloud services are provisioned by a third-party vendor like Dialpad. That means your telecommunications are managed off-site by your provider and you’ll pay them a monthly or yearly subscription for the service.

    Because everything is managed off-site, there’s no hardware to set up or costly maintenance to manage in house. Once you’re registered with Dialpad, for instance, you’ll be able to make and receive calls on any internet-enabled mobile device using the Dialpad app or via a browser. Because calls are made via the internet, there are no mainline telecoms companies involved.
