Why Hosted? Small and startup companies sometimes turn to hosted pbx as a simple fixed cost solution for their phone system. Small companies who want enterprise features benefit from the hosted pbx model. Maintenance and support costs from the pbx feature side are eliminated. If you elect a provider that also provides you internet its one bill. If you only use BASIC dial tone and BASIC features this might be a good solution.

Why Not Hosted? Business think they are getting a fully managed solution and a lower cost solution for their business. Other hidden costs include phantom voice mail boxes and charges for other items like simple auto attendants that will add up over time. Who is responsible for your data switches and routers on premise as this is a costly solution in the end. For small to medium sized businesses moving off an on-premise solution to a hosted solution as a low cost alternative, watch out! Every phantom user or group mailbox, every auto attendant, and certain features if you decide to turn on during installation or after are billable!!!! Administrators typically miss phantom boxes when they count number of users and by the time you go to implement your monthly recurring costs are more expensive than an on-premise solution. Your growth costs are more and you never own this solution. Some simple features might not be available which can cause end user headache and frustration. Since this is a full IT based solution, it will actually drive your IT maintenance costs up. Can your wiring and IT infrastructure handle this? Are you planning on integrating your PBX to your application servers (i.e. database, IVR, CRM, etc) - how will that work if it is offsite?
