In a barber shop, you need a phone system that must be highly reliable to meet the requirements of both staff and customers. Most barbers choose between two main types of telephone systems, on-premises and cloud.

A PBX phone system can be wall-mounted or stored in a comms cabinet which is located within your barber shop. A traditional phone system connects to conventional telephone lines, allowing calls to be distributed to a desk or cordless handset. Barbers tend to prefer cloud VoIP telephone systems due to lower costs and flexibility. Some barbers, however, don’t feel that they’re ready for the cloud and prefer to have the security of owning a phone system on their premises.

With a cloud hosted phone system, It uses your internet connection to make and receive telephone calls. There is no physical hardware in your barber shop other than your cordless phone(s) which gives staff the ability to communicate freely. Hosted telephone systems operate on a plug and play basis.
