Cloud PBX or Lease to Own?

Cloud PBX solutions were designed to allow smaller companies to enjoy the features and benefits of a sophisticated phone system without all the upfront costs. They are best suited to the <25 user office demographic for this reason.

Nationally branded Cloud PBX companies will have you believe that their monthly cost per seat stays competitive for dozens – even hundreds of users. But a quick look at the math for only 35 users tells a different tale;

Ring Central

  1. (35) Standard Feature Users
  2. Basic Setup
  3. $24.99 per seat for 2 or 3 year term
  4. Polycom VVX 311 – $9/month each with 2 or 3 year term
  5. Bottom Line: $14,280 per year with a 3 year contract

Vonage Business

  1. (35) Advanced Feature Users
  2. Basic Setup
  3. $29.98 per seat for 2 or 3 year term
  4. Polycom VVX 501 – $9/month each with 2 or 3 year term
  5. Bottom Line: $16,380 per year with a 3 year contract

Now the dirty little secret. Cloud PBX services are aggressively taxed and surcharged at the local, state and federal level. These charges will vary widely by your own company’s service address – but beware, their sales staff will rarely mention this pre-sale. The sticker shock won’t hit you until your first invoice – and at that point you’re under contract.
