Cloud phone system for businesses

What is a cloud phone system?

A cloud phone system is a telephone communication platform on cloud. With a hosted platform, all the costly and bulky hardware associated with a traditional PBX telephone setup goes out of the picture. What’s left behind is a clutter-free and easy-to-manage communication platform that is better than the traditional setup in almost every way possible.

Businesses can get started with a cloud phone system in less than 10% of the initial setup cost required in case of traditional PBX telephony setup.


Time Required

Everything related to an on-prem telephony setup is time consuming: installation, setup, modifications and upgradation whereas the same things in a cloud phone system can be done instantly and effortlessly.



In traditional business telephone setups if one node goes down, it affects the whole system, bringing your customer communication to a stand-still. With Exotel’s cloud phone system’s uptimes of 99.5%, businesses don’t need to worry about downtime.
