When WestWon moved to its new offices at the Old Rectory in Beaconsfield, Bucks, we undertook a major office fit out – everything from desks, chairs, partitions to boardroom furniture and flooring to laptops and AV equipment. Being a character building, the Old Rectory is full of charm … and also quirks, as we discovered when it came to fitting it out.
Naturally, as a leasing company, leasing the fit out was the obvious solution for us. And as part of our office refit we took the decision to install a new Voice Over IP (VOIP) telephone system – telephony equipment that uses the internet as opposed to a “normal” land line.
Leasing technology as well as furniture
Initially we were slightly dubious about the technology. Will it work? Will the service be secure and reliable? Will the sound quality be OK? Such doubts were unfounded.
Thus far, leasing our telephony has proved a sound business decision. The running costs are not just significantly lower, but the system also offers a number of key benefits. One example is how well it integrates with our CRM system – simply ‘right click’ on any telephone number in the system and press dial and, within seconds, we’re having a conversation. It is also very easy to set up the system for use from home as long as you have a laptop and an Internet connection.
Integrated telephony leasing
Of course, WestWon has also helped many other companies, large and small, to secure lease finance for their office fit out including telephony systems. In our experience, many sales organisations also choose to install a PBX system on the wall to monitor activity – quite an expensive item and ideal for leasing. And in general, at around £100 per CISCO handset together with the set up costs, telephony leasing certainly has its attractions for both established and new start up businesses.
