MANY BUSINESS PHONE systems are
designed—and priced—for huge corporations, not start-up businesses. Such systems usually require a large financial
investment and a purchase of at least 50
phones. Upfront costs can range within
thousands of dollars.
In contrast, AccessLine’s digital phone
service has been designed specifically for
companies with a workforce of up to 20
employees. Costco members are free to purchase only the number of phones and lines
they currently need, and can easily add
more equipment as needed. Even better,
