Companies with locations in different countries often have the problem that for international locations they are dependent on a telephone system of a provider from the respective country with corresponding national telephone numbers. This can entail significant risks for your company in terms of compliance, data protection and telephony costs.
We will show you how to best manage this situation, increasing data protection, ensuring compliance, improving compatibility and saving costs.
Each site has had its own telephony solution so far
An exemplary situation could be as follows: In Germany, the company’s head office has provider A for its telephony services, its branch office in Switzerland is with provider B and its colleagues in Austria with provider C.
Problems with compliance, compatibility, data protection
As a consequence, this means that different telephone systems in the same company are working side by side. We are well aware of the unavoidable side effects: System breakdowns, compatibility and interface issues, data protection and encryption uncertainties. In addition, each site must configure and maintain its own telephone system.
High call costs due to international calls within the company
In addition, there are considerable call costs: Calls between your company locations count as international calls and are charged at the corresponding rates. The weekly update call between team members quickly becomes a cost trap.
Worldwide telephony with one and the same provider
The scenario, which we have described here as an example for the DACH region, can be transferred at will, depending on where your company’s locations are distributed. One can imagine, however, what the data protection regulations at a location, e. g. in South Africa, are like or what the costs of a telephone call between Bangkok and Munich are.
Strong customer need: Connecting international locations
Many customers have told us about their problem that they are looking for an efficient solution to this situation: They want to integrate international locations into their VoIP telephony architecture, but have not yet found a provider that makes this possible.
