Switching Your Business to VoIPTuesday, September 4th, 2018
Cost savings, scalability and easy setup are just a few of the ways your business will benefit when replacing your traditional phone systems with VoIP technology.
VoIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, which is basically the type of phone service that works over an internet connection. Even though you may or may not know what it is, it’s highly likely that you’ve used VoIP without even realising it. For example, connecting with someone over Skype – that’s a VoIP call. And now that the technology is mainstream, there are a host of reasons your business can’t afford to be without it:
While the initial setup costs associated with a VoIP system may be intimidating to some business owners, studies show that organisations of all sizes will save in the long run after switching. That’s because a company using a VoIP service no longer needs to work with multiple service providers for its office, mobile, and data services.
Growing as your company does, a VoIP phone system allows you to add and remove users at will. As the number of employees fluctuates, the number of phone lines that can simultaneously be easily adjusted.
Unlike traditional phone lines, the greatest benefits of using a VoIP phone is that you can take it anywhere as long as you can connect to the Internet. This is hugely beneficial for remote employees, and for those who conduct business on-the-go.
Auto attendant, call forwarding, voicemail to email, and conference calling are just a few of the VoIP capabilities. Based on the package you choose, it also offers extensive reporting options, and true per-second billing on local, international, branch and community traffic.
If you’re still on the fence about switching to VoIP, you should consider it purely for the fact that older forms of telephone infrastructure are showing their age and operators aren’t investing as much in making repairs or upkeep. VoIP will likely become the international standard for voice communication which will make it harder for businesses to get a landline service.
When it comes to larger businesses, VoIP services are offered over dedicated last mile solutions and not public Internet. This not only increases voice quality, but it enhances security, too.
