FAQs about cloud phone systems for schools and universities

What are the benefits of a cloud phone system for schools?

The biggest benefit of cloud phone systems for schools is their cost-effectiveness. With a cloud school phone system, you don’t need to spend money on purchasing or installing hardware (like special handsets or cables) for your educational institution. If you need to expand, you can just pay for specific lines rather than bulk-buying equipment you may not need in the future.

Taking this approach to phone hardware also helps you to future-proof your school's infrastructure. All technical operations are handled remotely in the cloud, meaning the necessity for any future updates (requiring action on your part) are minimized.

Finally, within a school environment—reliability may be a cloud phone system’s biggest advantage. In the event of a power failure a cloud setup can usually keep operating since you can use cell phones and laptops with the softphone app. This means you can keep lines of communication open, and ensure the safety of both staff and students.
