We are seeing a massive turnover in Legacy-Based PBX Systems, and, with that, we have a gaggle of cringe-worthy user-experience anecdotes. Whether it be the installation and implementation or the service and support, there is no shortage of chances for a slip up along the way. Much like a road trip, you have a destination in mind and you can visualize exactly how it looks, getting there is the tough part. There are several directions involved on your path to get to your last stop and just one wrong move can hinder your process tremendously.

With this said, at Magna5, we’ve provided a roadmap to guide you along the journey to a modernized Communications Platform. In keeping with your road trip, we’ve defined five key mileposts to plot your learning journey, progress, and also a final milepost to help you know when you know you’ve reached your destination. So, join us for this road trip jaunt as we travel through cloud-based communications. We promise you’ll like this road trip – and we’ve even got a great Road Trip Playlist.

On the Road Towards Business Cloud Communication Solutions

Starting Point: Find a great partner. On your journey, find a great partner so you can enjoy the ride together. This partner knows the right direction, the ins/outs, and how to avoid wrong turns, dead-ends, and is someone you trust, and just maybe someone who shares the same taste in music (that’s a big deal).
