Whether you are working from the office or currently working from home, choosing the right phone system is crucial. Finding the perfect phone system which fits all of your needs can feel like an impossible task. There are so many options available which offer different designs and features. Identifying which one is most suited to your work environment is key.

There are many factors that will determine which phone is the right choice for you. Sound quality is the most important factor that will need to be considered. Clear and defined audio quality is essential for any business. Brands such as Gigaset and Panasonic make this a priority throughout the design of their products.

You will also need to consider the type of connection that the phones use. An analogue connection is the most common, and the majority of phones will use this without any trouble. However, many businesses have switched to VoIP which will require a system which has been purposely designed for this. Many modern phone systems offer a hybrid solution and will be able to operate on both lines.

Finally, consider what devices you are using alongside the phone. Whether this is a headset or conference speaker, you will need to ensure that they are compatible. This will vary depending on the connection of the device that you are using.

The Gigaset S850A is available in two different setups. The GO version is suitable for both VoIP and analogue. However, if you do not have a VoIP system available, then it may worth looking at the standard version. These two phones are identical and the only difference lies in the type of connection that they can operate on.

Siemens Gigaset S850A Premium Cordless Phone (£74.99)

This phone system is nearly identical to the GO version which has been listed above. However, the base unit supplied with the two models is different and this impacts how the systems operate. The GO version has a base unit which is separate from the phone and allows for VoIP calls. The standard S850A base unit connects through the analogue telephone connection and will not offer any VoIP service. Therefore, if you work within an office that only supplies an analogue connection, the standard version would be recommended.
