iFrogz Impulse Duo Dual Driver Wireless Bluetooth headphones Review

It’s always nice to be pleasantly surprised by a product. I had the opportunity to play around with the iFrogz Impulse Duo dual driver wireless Bluetooth headphones (not an easy title to get your tongue around). At around £39, these are on the lower end of the pricing spectrum and I am generally wary of […]

Why Technology Is Important for Your Business

Technology changes all the time and keeping up with those changes is important. You need to know that you are using the best kinds of technology for your business so that you can be as successful as possible. Even if the tech you are using doesn’t change too much, it is still important to investigate the different technological advances that might make your business better than the others around you. Here are some reasons why this is the case. 

You Can Save Money 

Having the right technology in your business and making sure it is as up to date as possible can save you money, even if you had to spend money to buy it and set it up in the first place. One way that technology can save you money is to reduce your staffing costs. If you can use technology to carry out several different tasks, you won’t need so many employees to do those tasks. Since salaries are one of the biggest expenses in business, this can be a huge saving.

Not only this, but you can be more efficient and productive too. Giving your employees up to date technology (or using it yourself) to help them do their jobs will speed up the process, and your customers will be even happier. 

You can even use technology to go online to a site such as Utility Bidder and look at how to save on your energy bills. By reducing your outgoing costs, you can boost your profits. 

You Will Be Able to Offer Better Customer Service 

In this modern age, customer service is one of the most important elements of your business. This hasn’t changed over the years – providing exceptional customer service has always been something that will have set one business apart from the rest in a positive way. However, due to the internet and social media, and the way that messages can be sent around so quickly, as well as the fact that people expect a lot more thanks to internet shopping, customer service is something that must be taken even more seriously than ever. 

A positive experience with a business is something that you should always strive for your customers to have, and technology can help with this. You can ensure your website is well maintained and user-friendly, for example. You might use it to sell or to take bookings, which will give people an overall better view of your company. 

You Can Get Ahead of The Competition 

No matter what you sell or provide and how well you do it, there will always be competition. There will always be other businesses providing and selling similar items and services, and it is down to you to ensure that your business is the one that potential customers want to use more than any other. 

By having the most up to date machinery and technology, by having an excellent website that people like to use and that gives them all the information they need, and by ensuring that you can offer everything your customers want, you can get ahead of the competition.

Seven Cars That Are Perfect for Tech Lovers

Are you a lover of technology and a car enthusiast? If so, you should consider purchasing a new vehicle that will allow you to indulge in both of your passions at the same time. Fortunately, there are a number of cars out there that will allow you to do just that.

Here are seven awesome cars that are perfect for tech lovers like yourself:

 

Audi A8

The A8 is Audi’s latest attempt to monopolise the in-car technology industry, and it’s safe to say they’ve succeeded. This is a car that is full to the brim of top-level technology. It uses autonomous tech to make motorway driving easier and smoother, it uses AI tech to help drivers remain on the straight and narrow when driving in congested traffic areas, and it even comes factory fitted with a dual-touchscreen cockpit.

It’s true, the Audi A8 is very much one of the techiest vehicles out there on the road today.

 

Jaguar I-Pace

Jaguar very much came back with a bang when they released the all-electric I-Pace at the end of 2018. This vehicle is packed full of amazing tech, including a four-display cockpit and a 400bhp electric setup.

 

McLaren 720S

The McLaren 720S is not just a supercar, it’s a technologically-enhanced supercar. Its main tech feature is its Proactive Chassis Control, a system that allows drivers to create, customise and tailor their own chassis requirements. Another cool piece of tech to be found in this car is its fold-out dashboard. This works completely in tandem with the vehicle’s central hub and main touchscreen, thus allowing the driver to enjoy an advanced driving experience that is like no other.

 

Kia Stinger

The Kia Stinger is a car that looks the part, performs exceptionally well on the road, and comes with an amazing 7-year warranty. The most important thing of all? It is packed full of in-car technologies that tech lovers like yourself are sure to enjoy. The various gadgets and devices that are found in the Kia Stinger all operate from an efficient central hub, which means that downtime is not something that you will have to worry about if you purchase this vehicle.

Some of the specific driving technologies and safety features to be found in the Stinger include:

  • Hill-start control
  • Limited slip deferential
  • Driving mode select option

 

E-Tech Renault Clio

The E-Tech edition of the traditional Renault Clio model is set to take the world of technology by storm in 2020. This hybrid vehicle will provide a host of in-car technologies as standard, all of which are set to make it the safest and most efficient new car of the year.

 

Tesla Model X 75D

If you want to feel like you’re driving a spaceship, then you should invest in the Tesla Model X 75D. This vehicle boasts a plethora of in-car tech features, one of which being an iPad fitted into the front dashboard.

 

BMW i8

Can you comprise a list of great cars without mentioning at least one BMW? In this instance, it’s the i8 that gets all the plaudits. This is a vehicle that wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi movie, simply because its plethora of in-car technologies make it look so futuristic. What’s more, as the majority of the aluminium that is used to create this vehicle is recycled, purchasing one will allow you to play your part in the fight against global warming.

BMWs aren’t always the cheapest cars on the market. Fortunately, however, the i8 won’t necessarily have to cost you an arm and a leg should you decide to invest in one. To ensure that you get the best deal and lowest price possible in this instance, then you need to use a reputable car dealership such as AutoUncle. For more information on the i8s that they showcase and the process of how they score the car prices, be sure to check out AutoUncle and peruse the used cars they have.

It’s safe to say that the cars listed above and very much leading the way when it comes to in-car technology. Whether you purchase the Audi A8, the Jaguar I-Pace, the McLaren 720S, the E-Tech Renault Clio, the Tesla Model X 75D, the Kia Stinger, or the BMW i8, you will have the automobile industry’s leading technological features at your very fingertips. It goes without saying but whatever you do, just don’t let all of these cool gadgets and devices distract you from the road.

Which investment techniques are best for making profits?

No matter how you dress it up, making a profit is the ultimate goal of any investment. While short-term movements and predicted outcomes are often looked at by investors, the only long-term endeavour for any investment is to extract more value than you originally put in – and if that doesn’t happen, it’s hard to deem the investment a success.

But with so many investment vehicles out there, it can sometimes seem hard to find the ones which are most likely to turn a profit – especially given that the correct answer to above question can often vary from person to person, and will depend largely on your circumstances. This article will explore which investment techniques are best if you’re looking to grow your wealth through profit.

 

Purchasing property

Investing above and beyond a savings account is still not hugely popular in the UK – except, it seems, when it comes to property. Other than pensions – which are technically invested on behalf of the account holder, but are seen by the general public mostly as mere savings vehicles – buying a house is the main way in which most people are likely to turn a profit over the course of their lives.

For many, buying a house is a great way to generate income as a long-term investment. However, it should be emphasised that one of three things has to be the case in order for the profit to be realised. The first thing is to have time on your side: except in some areas of the country where property value growth is very strong, it can often take well over a decade for any profit to appear.

The second thing which can turn a house purchase into a profit-making machine is location. Buying a house or even a flat in prime real estate areas such as London (or even, increasingly, other areas of the south such as Surrey, Oxford or Bristol) might end up being a great profit generator thanks to the strong price growth seen in these areas. In London alone, average property values stand at just above £650,000 – and that figure is only expected to rise in the coming years.

Thirdly, it’s also possible to make a profit from property purchases by adding value. This means purchasing a property at a price which is as low as possible and then renovating or extending it so that it sells for a much higher price than the combined sum of what you paid for it and what you spent on the renovation. The difference, if you do it properly, is pure profit – and, crucially, it can happen even in areas with low market growth.

 

Crypto opportunities

But while bricks and mortar are likely to always be popular options for people looking to turn a profit, there has been an increasing move in recent years towards investing in cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies a digital banking phenomenon that has sprung up in recent years: in essence, cryptocurrencies are decentralised internet-based currencies which can be used to pay for goods and services, but which are controlled by a central ledger which has no overall authority in charge of it.

There are all kinds of interesting technical aspects to crypto, but for an investor, the main appeal lies in the fact that crypto is highly popular – and that translates into value. Bitcoin alone, for example, currently rests at a value of just under USD $7,000 – and while it is known for volatility, it is known for growth too. Those who use tools including Profit Revolution can develop a trading strategy which takes into account these risks, and which stays at the cutting edge of market trends too.

 

Investing your time

Finally, it’s also worth thinking about whether or not you have any skills you could develop and invest time in with the goal of returning a profit. If you do decide to invest your time, it’s worth finding a way to do it which offers maximum profit for the least time outlay: an in-demand skill such as coding, for example, can allow you to turn spare hours into strong cash inflows and earn cash in a flexible and lucrative way.

Investment is a necessary and vital aspect of the process of accruing legitimate profit. And if you’re thinking about investment, there are plenty of ways to do it: from buying a property to sell on at a profit to delving into the crypto universe, there’s plenty of information out there that can set you on your way.

Review of Wolf Gold Slot Game

Native American culture is incredibly interesting, however it is also unfortunately steeped in tragedy. For hundreds of years now these people have been grossly mistreated, first by European settlers on the newly found continent of America, and then by American citizens themselves, who continuously fail to recognise the importance of such things as ancestral land. In fact, a massive chunk of land that rightfully belongs to a variety of different Native American tribes has been grabbed by massive corporations without so much as an apology. Seriously, you would be surprised at the amount of Native American tribes that have been displaced due to oil companies building new pipelines, or states needing to build more housing. It is a crying shame, because it also signifies a dangerous part of modern life, namely the increasing disconnect between humans and the world around us. 

This is something that Native American culture has always held very dear – the essential connection between nature and mankind. A lot of their practises are implicitly aimed at environmental sustainability, and strengthening that essential connection between the human and natural world. As such there are a variety of animals that are closely related to the Native American world, not least the majestic and absolutely frightening wolf. These creatures have a long and complicated relationship with humans, but ultimately we have learnt to get along, something dogs are a lovely example of. It is also something that means Pragmatic Play’s Wolf Gold slot game makes perfect sense, an online slot that combines Native American culture with all the animals they hold dear. The game is also highly lucrative, meaning that you could easily walk away with quite the amount of money after a good old reel spinning session on it. Let’s take a look at Wolf Gold… 

About Wolf Gold and its Aesthetic 

So, we’ve ascertained that Wolf Gold is a quintessentially Native American themed slot, and as such the aesthetic of this game from Pragmatic Play should come as no surprise. It is wholly concerned with the natural world, as the slot’s background displays a beautiful alpine setting, adorned with lots of snow and evergreen conifer trees. This is what the fairly standard 3×5 reel grid configuration sits on top of, and it makes for a thoroughly engaging online slot experience. Graphics mean a lot these days, especially when you have the likes of NetEnt and Yggdrasil consistently setting the standard with immaculately clear and precise 3D graphics. In this respect then our only grievance is that Pragmatic Play have opted for a slightly more retro aesthetic with Wolf Gold, it is all wonderfully rendered which leads us to believe that this was done out of choice. Many gamblers will love it, especially those that enjoy the nostalgia drenched retro slot market, however we just wonder whether it will be enough for seasoned online slot gamblers. In any case, if you aren’t particularly uptight about your online slot graphics you will love the appearance of Wolf Gold. 

The symbols on offer during Wolf Gold only serve to intensify the game’s focus on the natural world, with a variety of different animals making up what you can expect to find on the reels. Of course, as is standard with online slots these days high value card symbols from 10 to Ace make up the low paying icons during this slot, something we have come to expect in the modern online slot universe. Apart from this there are a variety of different icons that will appear on the reels, for instance a moon, wolf, eagle and setting sun are just a handful of the possible things you might encounter here. We really do have to hand it to Pragmatic Play, they have pulled it out of the bag, offering an exciting array of symbols that tie in with the main aesthetic perfectly. 

About Wolf Gold and its Bonus Features 

This burgeoning online slot developer do not mess around when it comes to the different bonus features available during Wolf Gold either. The main thing to consider here is the fact that there are actually three different jackpots available during this online slot. First off is the Mini jackpot that will pay out a still rather generous 7,5000 credits. Next is the Major jackpot with an even more tantalizing 25,000 credits. And finally the Mega jackpot with a really quite outrageous prize of 250,000 credits – can you believe it? That really is quite the jackpot. We are sure that you will be wondering how exactly you can get your hands on these jackpots at this point, and the way to do so centres around the moon symbols that we mentioned earlier. You must find at least six moon symbols to be in with a chance of winning the Mini jackpot, something that will also trigger the money respin feature. Now, when you spin the reels again you will want to find even more moons, because this is how you reach the Major jackpot, and then after that the Mega jackpot. It sounds complicated, but it only takes a few spins to get the hang of it. 

Wolf Gold also contains a scatter symbol, and this looks like a sun setting behind a red rock that reminded us of the beautiful Uluru in Australia (wrong country, but hey ho). Three of these scatters will reward you with five free spins, and you could even win more whilst this is happening. Nice! 

About Pragmatic Play and Other Slots by Them 

Pragmatic Play really do live up to their name, providing an intrinsically pragmatic approach to the art of online slot software developing that has seen them steadily climb the ranks since their birth in 2015. The Maltese company are a relatively new face on the online casino scene, however they have already marked their authority with several award wins. Consider some of their other titles and there should be no surprise of this fact: 

  •   888 Dragons HappyLuke
  •   John Hunter And The Book Of Mystery
  •   Monkey Madness
  •   Queen Of Atlantis 

Wolf Gold: The Verdict 

We really enjoyed playing Wolf Gold, especially because of the knowledge that the Mega jackpot is always just within grasp. A cracking online slot from Pragmatic Play!

Bankroll Required to Play in a Casino

Gambling responsibly is the line players draw so that they get their money’s worth of fun and can still afford to revisit the casino in the near future. Professional players understand this concept and practice bankroll management from the infancy of their pro gaming careers. In order for you to stand a chance at winning and simultaneously enjoying the game, you too will need to adopt a bankroll management strategy. All players have good and bad days and with the winning come the loss but there is never a good enough reason to go over your budget. Being able to learn more at Slotsmummy.com before betting will help have more chance in winning. Here is where we take a look at bankrolls required to play in a casino and how you can manage yours.

What Is a Bankroll?

Your bankroll is the cash you have available to spend in a casino. It is the amount of money that fluctuates each time you play a new video slot game, table game or card game. It is the necessity when walking through the doors of a land based casino establishment.

Bankroll Management

Before you decide to play poker or perhaps you have walked into the casino and want to find out where your luck lies tonight by walking up to the roulette table and placing a whopper on 22 black before you do any of this you should lay some ground rules for yourself. Set a limit of how much you are going to spend and make sure there is no means available of accessing more funds past this limit. Leave your banking cards at home, play with cash if you must, whatever you choose and however you choose to do this, you simply need to make sure you cannot access more cash and practice this ritual each time you play in a casino.

Free Online Casino Games

There are a number of free casino games, especially slots games, available through the internet. Most of these games come with ‘fun money’ or credits.  You can practice managing your bankroll by using these games as an example and cap it at a certain limit. You will also benefit by seeing how your money fluctuates after each spin and after each win.

There is also need to factor in food and drinks when you are gambling. More often than not, players tend to drink more when at the tables, it may have something to do with nerves and the excitement, but you wouldn’t want to find yourself too inebriated to drive and need money for a cab only to realize you have spent all your money playing casino games and now stand without any small change. Always keep your bankroll separate from your food and beverage tab and make sure you have enough money on your person in case of an emergency.

Those who gamble responsibly tend to enjoy casino gaming on a whole different level and you too can experience all the benefits of online gambling if you manage your bankroll and identify how much it is you need to have a great time.

Review of Vikings Go Berzerk slot

The Vikings are going berserk in their quest for victory and to please their gods so that their final journey will be to Valhalla and they will feast amongst the gods. They will stop at nothing, and they look fearsome going into battle. It’s down to you to help them on this epic quest and there is some handsome plunder in it for you if you succeed!

Gameplay on this Viking Slot 

We hope you’re sitting comfortably because Vikings Go Berzerk slots game is about to blow you away with the immense amount of features, coupled with stunning and gripping graphics and visuals. The game is a five-reel slot with 25 fixed paylines which is well known for its features as well as the abundance of free spins on offer.  

As with the vast majority of games by developer Yggdrasil, the dramatic opening and movie scene style introduction of the game is where they set the tone for the game, and they hit the nail on the head with Vikings Go Berzerk. First, as the game loads, you’ll see myriad stone and copper statues what looks like an apocalyptic graveyard, each statue eerily is frozen still in time in action as if they once were alive and were turned to stone. Glowing embers float in the air giving the impression of the aftermath of a ferocious battle. 

Once the game commences, the screen is a majestic Viking warship, primed for battle and ready to raid, with a powerful dragon head perched as the ship’s threatening figure-head. Now the scene is set, you’ll begin to discover the unique features of the game which is where the fun begins! 

The game controls are simple and easy to use and all the control buttons are located to the bottom of the screen so you can easily manage your bets before you spin the reels. The regular, lower-paying symbols on this slot game include coins in bronze, silver and gold, but the symbols you’ll be hankering after are the higher-paying symbols which all take on the shape of Vikings which are also displayed at the bottom of the screen, just above the control panel which is integrated into the hull of this ship. Some of these figureheads are pretty intimidating, but they’ll certainly be welcomed when they land on the reels as they will bring high payouts if they land in winning combos.  

Be vigilant in the game for the Wild symbols which acts as a substitute for all other symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbol. You’ll be able to easily identify the Wild symbol as it is depicted in bold glowing gold letters so you really can’t miss it! If you land three, four or five of these symbols in a winning combination on the reels this will get you 7, 14 or even 21 free spins as well as an exciting randomly selected bonus feature. 

Bonus features include: 

  • Berzerk Mode: One feature that gives the slot game its name and is what it is most popular for is the Rage Meter, which is displayed adjacent to the reels for you to watch at the rage gradually builds up throughout the gameplay. Once the meter is full to the brim and the rage of the Vikings reaches its peak, Berzerk mode will be triggered and you will get seven free spins to help you build up your winnings. Watch out for the sirens who are geared to distract you from, victory, as many a Viking warrior has been lured to their demise by the sirens! 
  • Bonus Treasure Chest which can be found on the fourth reel and will give you a choice of treasured prizes to choose from!
  • Bonus Golden Treasure Chest is a symbol which you’ll encounter in both the base game as well as the free spins round and it will be located on the fifth reel, offering five exciting prizes to choose from. 
  • Bonus Sticky Wilds, where the Wild symbol will stick anywhere on the reels;
  • Bonus Free Spins, where you will be granted one, two or three free spins; 
  • Bonus Ragnar Free Spins, named after the legendary Scandinavian king Ragnar Lodbrok who was considered to be a Norse Viking hero, this symbol will crank up the rage meter and subsequently trigger Berzerk mode; 

About the Developer

Increasing Traffic to Your Tech Website: A Guide

Whether your website shares blog posts about your niche in the technology world, or products and services as a small business, it’s important that your efforts in curating a brilliant and engaging website aren’t wasted by your not finding any traffic to run through your pages. Without views and clicks, your website can feel a little barren, hopeless and pointless. Meanwhile, though, monitoring a steady increase in web traffic on your site can be incredibly exciting – good for business, and good for exposure. In this short guide, you’ll learn how to increase traffic in four easy steps.

Make Your Web Portfolio

Remember that your website should only be one part of your web of digital assets: you should also be on e-commerce stores if you’re selling, or on social media if you’re a blogger. It’s only by being part of these extra communities that you can be seen as a business or blogger with value and worth. Studies have revealed that one of the most common reasons for individuals to avoid certain websites is that they don’t trust them – so, with social media presence, and a presence on other platforms, you’ll be building those portfolio links to make yourself look far more reliable and trustworthy to web users.

Digital Marketing Strategies

Now, there’s one key way to bring your website more traffic, and that’s through the careful curation of digital marketing strategies that will help your website rise like a cork in water to the top of the pile in Google’s search results. This process is called SEO, and there are several specialist providers of this service with whom you ought to partner if you’d like to see this meteoric rise in clicks and traffic. Head over to Click Intelligence to find out more about their work, their experts and what they can offer you in terms of data analysis and ground-breaking ways to get your website seen.

In The News

How can you get your website into the news? It’s a good question, and it’ll certainly take some cunning and creativity on your part in order to get featured. However, there are some more tried-and-tested ways to get into the pages of newspapers and magazines:

  • Write an op-ed or a similar type of feature or opinion piece to a magazine or newspaper
  • Ask to be featured on product listings on certain tech sites in order to get seen
  • Partner with organisations with similar audiences to yours, in order to mutually boost traffic

By getting into the news, you’ll boost your SEO as well as bringing in site visitors from the news website you’re published on.

Email Marketing

If you’re seriously looking to make a boost to your traffic in the coming month, perhaps the best way to do so is to launch an email marketing campaign – either with emails that you’ve been shared through a third party, or emails you’ve received from members or customers on your website. Offering deals, discounts, special offers and coupons is a guaranteed way to get people back onto your site – and to get them sharing, too.

These four tips will help form the backbone of your strategy to increase web traffic for your technology website in 2020 and beyond.

History of online slots

Almost 125 years ago the first slot machine made its appearance on the planet. A man, named Charles Fay invented one of the most diffused and revolutionary game ever. Since that day in Sant Francisco, it has changed quite a lot. However, it has kept that charm which has conferred to it its well-deserved glory throughout the years – visit kingcasino.com today..

Due to the technological evolutions, the entire world has changed. Casinos have been involved in this unavoidable progress, and in the first years of 90’s the online version of them made its first appearance. The first step towards the complete mutation has been taken. From that moment on, they have constantly evolved in that direction until it has become almost impossible to avoid thinking about casinos without associating the word “online” to them.

Many new platforms to play at slots 

Another very important moment for online slots can be identified by the overcoming of the barriers related to the platforms where the games could run.

In the first years of the twenty-first century, mobile devices such as smartphone and tablet started their successful careers. With them, also mobile internet has become cheaper and faster, to the extent to give people the possibility to surf and play online whenever and wherever without the need to be necessarily at home.

This was the chance that manufacturers were waiting for: online Machines landed on smartphone and tablets. Mobile devices have constantly increased their performances so that the screens which have become bigger and more readable. Thanks to all these developments, slots are today one of the most played games on mobile devices.

The introduction of virtual Reality Slot Games 

Online games have now become available on virtual reality. Wearing a visor and a gauntlet, Players can interact with the surrounding world. This evolution, which was considered sci-fi just a few decades ago, is actually more real than ever.

Players, both newbies and veterans appreciate the playability and the full immersion only VR can give to them.

Extremely popular, classic slots are very diffused worldwide and the community of people who play them is growing every day more. All those people are connected and, in a certain way, running for the same goal. This means that the entire community contributes to enhance the budget up for grabs and the possible wins are becoming huge, some of them are even “life-changing”.

The idea of creating competition among Players has finally become reality. In the last few years, online machines are also tournament games. This means that people can challenge each other in a real tournament, and then aspire to massive rewards.

The Benefits of Cloud, On-Premise & Hybrid Communication Systems

The quality of customer service is at an all-time high. No, we’re not just saying that — the stats speak volumes: 81 per cent of US consumers say companies are either meeting or exceeding their expectations in the field of customer service.

That’s powerful stuff.

As you can see, the fear of being left behind in your competitor’s dust is real. The solution? Picking the right communications system for your company: cloud-based, on-premise or a hybrid of the two.

Let’s take a closer look at these solutions and how they can benefit your company.

Cloud-Based Solutions

Cloud-based call centre software solutions are resilient. With the power of the cloud, you can leverage your provider’s data centres from anywhere in the world. All you need is a stable internet connection for you and your customer support agents to access and make the most out of this software.

It’s also worth noting; you don’t have to waste your precious time and money on maintenance. Instead, the entire infrastructure is managed and maintained by your service provider. So, rest assured, your IT department can focus on all the other tasks you need them to do.

On the subject of expenses, cloud-based call centre software allows you to predict your finances. This comes in handy for budgeting your company’s future expenses. Plus, there are no installation costs. You don’t have to purchase or install any hardware. Instead, you just pay your monthly (or annual) subscription to your service provider.

On-Premise Comms Systems

Larger enterprises that want full control over their comms network will benefit from an on-premise system. It’s safe to say organisations with the funds for the hardware and licensing to install an in-house solution enjoy lower ongoing operational costs. At least, in the long run anyway.

Once the initial outlay is taken care of, you don’t have the same monthly payments as you do cloud-based solutions.

A Hybrid Solution

The most notable benefit of the hybrid system is that it provides a smoother migration process for companies wanting to transition from on-premise to cloud-only systems.

You can utilise your existing machinery and combine it with cloud-based software, rather than switching to an entirely new system all in one go. This is a much quicker way for your company to enjoy the benefits of the cloud. With a hybrid solution, you shouldn’t experience the downtime that usually occurs with traditional migration.

As with on-premise systems, you still have full control over your servers. You choose what to host on the cloud and what you host internally — the choice is yours.

If your business handles particularly sensitive data, say financial info or medical records, you’ll probably want to keep this in-house and delegate other areas of your business to the cloud.

It’s also worth noting, just like the cloud-based solution, it’s easy to scale your comms system. You can add new communication lines or take them away as and when you please — without forking out for extra hardware.

The Key Takeaways

Each of these three systems has different benefits. A cloud-based solution is resilient and easy to scale, there are no installation or maintenance costs and the predictable fees make it easy to budget. The on-premise solution gives you full control over your comms system and in the long-run, it (should) be cheaper. The hybrid option gives you complete control over your comms system while enjoying the scalability and accessibility of the cloud.

Now that you’re in a better position to make an informed choice about your comms system, which one will you choose for your business?
