People predicted more than five years ago that hosted PBX phone systems we’re going to be the most utilized business communication system in the business arena. The business community was very excited about the advent of this new PBX telephony that would soon replace the traditional landline phone system that had been serving so many businesses for so many years now. That’s why it’s a little surprising to read the research that tells us that only about 20% of businesses have actually incorporated a hosted communications solution into their company as of today.
Although the incorporation of hosted PBX phone systems into both small and medium-sized businesses hasn’t been occurring as fast as previously thought, prediction’s show that unified communications is indeed a quickly growing market. Updated predictions now show that within the next few years, the unified business communications market will grow to become a nearly a $400 billion dollar market. Impressive.

Since the costs associated with incorporating a hosted business communication phone system into a business have lowered considerably making it much more affordable these days, more and more small businesses have been signing up.
This leads us to believe that simply not having a good understanding of how beneficial a hosted PBX business communications system can have on a company is the main reason why more business haven’t signed up for an updated telephone system.
