TDS(R) Introduces New Promotion; Businesses can Upgrade Their Phone System and Save Money

Madison, Wis., Jan 28, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Today, TDS Telecommunications Corp. (TDS(R)) announced businesses can save up to $10,000 by upgrading to the company's managedIP Hosted phone system. In addition, businesses may qualify for new VVX500 business media phones for free.


According to TDS, there are many reasons businesses choose to upgrade their phone system, including: saving time, becoming more efficient, regaining call control, and improving productivity.

Flagship Insurance Group, a small business based in Winsted, Minn. says business began growing almost immediately after they started using TDS managedIP Hosted. Hear how the agency is leveraging the technology of their new phone system to regain control and grow business.

Technology makes the world go round. Switching from computer to desk phone, smartphone, iPad, or iPod is now done seamlessly and efficiently. Imagine going back to the way things used to be. Back to the day when typewriters were prevalent, computers were in their infancy, and phones required manual dialing. None of these communication tools were connected creating inefficiencies in the way work was completed.

Many businesses continue working this way. Though typewriters are nearly extinct, outdated phone systems are still being used and they are not connected with computers. But, it doesn't have to be this way.

Has the time come to leverage technology and regain control of the way business is done Danna Insurance Agency of White Bear Lake, Minn. talks about how easy it is to switch.

Every business owner wants to be successful in business. For too many businesses, outdated phone equipment is holding them back from success. It's costing them customers, prospects, time and money. TDS wants to help businesses make the switch to updated technology and is offering new incentives today. Visit http://www.tdsvoip.com/voip-specials for more details.
