10 Most Common Mistakes Made When Purchasing a Telephone System
- Not sticking with a Market Leader:
- By sticking with a market leader, you ensure that the system you purchase will be supported and evolved for years to come.
- Not selecting a system that will expand with your needs.
- Not recognizing how important your telephone system is to the productivity and efficiency of your business.
- Buying a telephone system based on price alone:
- All too often businesses go out and purchase telephone equipment, which is inadequate for their needs, only to find out that after a short space of time they must purchase a replacement system. This can result in you spending more money for an inadequate communications system than you would have for a cutting edge, top of the line telephones system and still not have one.
- Not considering future technological needs in order to ensure that the system you select can not only support your business today but also tomorrow.
- Not consulting with a telecommunications professional before selection a telephone system to purchase.
- Not ensuring that your telephone system purchase includes a full warranty that covers equipment and labor.
Not inquiring about the availability and cost of extended coverage if desired.
- This can be a direct reflection on the life cycle of the equipment. If the manufacturer is not willing to provide extended coverage at affordable prices, than maybe it's because the equipment is not built to last.
- Not considering the cost associated with maintaining an unreliable system after the warranty period.
- Not considering the ease of making changes to your system. Swapping telephones, resetting voice mail boxes, changing outgoing greeting for holidays, etc.

There are so many people moving their businesses that are stressed out by the number of things that have to be done, not to mention keeping their business going.
So many of these things on the "to do list" are causing anxiety and stress. Their Situation… Is Critical! Along those lines let me tell you a story about Carl a business man who was excited about the purchase of his new property…a terrific new place with the perfect office space, conference room and demo room for his products… Carl had an amazing, positive optimistic outlook on the future of his business.
While waiting for his new building, his lease was up and he was now paying 1 and 1/2 times his lease on a month to month contract. The leasing company found a new tenant and gave him 30 days to leave. He was at wit's end, no building…forced to move!
Now apart from finding his new building all his voice and data cabling and communications had to be moved. Of course most phone companies require 3 to 4 weeks advance notice… if not escalation for emergency service and additional payments to the phone company are required.
What about the new place… all the voice and data cabling had to be in place or there would be no work done when they move.
Now like Carl in your current situation what do you want to do? How do you want to communicate? Are some of the questions you want solved? Small- to Medium-sized Business as well as large businesses has these business challenges. Carl was able to utilize TeleComcepts' Infrastructure Services which provided him with configuration & deployment support, systems integration, and maintenance support. The service included de-installation and re-installation of his existing telephone system, 24×7 experienced technical support, and liaison with multi-vendors insurance that deployments are completed on time and on budget.
To ensure the project was successful, the project began with an assessment of critical needs and objectives. TeleComcepts understood the importance of meeting with Carl to fully understand his situation and conducted a detailed assessment of his business and technology needs before starting the project.

During the implementation phase, TeleComcepts works to integrate the solution into the business infrastructure. We stage, configure, install, test and turn up the solution while ensuring the migration, upgrades or cutovers do not disrupt your existing business operations.
We know that Network downtime costs U.S. companies millions of dollars a year.

TeleComcepts' Maintenance services minimize your time to repair with experienced technical resources.

In the event of a new installation or new cabling requirements TeleComcepts provides customized structured cabling plans with the ability to expand, upgrade and reconfigure your wiring needs to meet current and future business demands. Structured cabling design and installation is governed by a set of standards that determine how to wire a data center, office or apartment building for data or voice communications, using Category 5(CAT 5E) or Category 6 cable(CAT 6E) and modular sockets. These standards define how to lay the cabling in a star formation, such that all outlets terminate at a central patch panel (which is normally 19 inch rack-mounted), from where it can be determined exactly how these connections will be used. Each outlet can be 'patched' into a data network switch (normally also rack mounted alongside), or patched into a 'telecoms patch panel' which forms a bridge into a private branch exchange (PBX) telephone system, thus making the connection a voice port.
