Some additional features might help improve business productivity by making it easier for you to do business with your customers. For instance, remote location features allow employees in separate locations to call each other using internal extensions.
Newer features offered by many business phone systems include find me/follow me (which routes calls among a list of numbers until it is answered or is sent to voice mail), interactive voice response, shared message boxes, unified messaging and more.
You should also consider factors such as:
How many lines will you need?
How easy is it to use?
How fast is your business growing?
What other equipment do you plan to use?
What features do you really need? (keep it user friendly)
Can this system be expanded easily as your needs change?
How many handsets and locations will you need?
What will the power requirements be?
Will they work in case of a power outage?
