The Evolution of the Telephone
Happy National Phone Day! As the business phone experts, we couldn’t resist celebrating the evolution of what has become the most widely used technology of our time. Communications has and always will be the most essential part of any relationship, business or otherwise, and the vast advancements made to this critical technology have been remarkable.
It’s hard to believe that the initial concept for this form of communication technology began more than 400 years ago. And, just 150 years ago, in 1867, Alexander Graham Bell spoke the first official words into a telephone to Thomas A. Watson. This invention has since gone on to transform communications worldwide.
With the demands to remain connected at an all time high, businesses especially are adopting more advanced technology than your typical office phone system, incorporating much more than just voice communications. Complete unified communications solutions that are maintained in the cloud, encompassing video conferencing platforms, mobile tools and online faxing, are proving to be the most efficient and cost-effective way for businesses today to centralize communications internally and with customers.
With more than a decade of cloud phone experience, Broadview prides itself on being pioneers in this fast-growing and ever-evolving market of new age business communications. We look forward to continuing to be on the forefront of the most indispensable technology in history.
We’ve put together a fun timeline to show the evolution of the telephone so you can see for yourself just how far this amazing technology has come.
