In today’s digital business world any business or organization concerned about efficient and cost-effective solutions for telecommunications has probably heard about VoIP. Although conflicting information is on the internet, the vast majority of businesses the switch over to a VoIP telephone system say they wouldn’t go back. In this article we’ll take a more in-depth look at the top 5 benefits of using a VoIP telephone system for your business or organization.
Cost-Per-Call is More Affordable
VoIP systems use Internet Protocol to make calls. Instead of using telephone lines, all data is converted into packets and sent over an IP network. The IP network your business uses can be your internet connection, a direct IP connection to your telephone service provider, or a combination. There is more “space” for user calling with VoIP as opposed to the limited space and capacity of phone lines. As a result, many businesses that use VoIP are given the ability to make domestic and long-distance calls for free, or at a much lower cost.
For businesses on-the-go, VoIP services can be a big benefit because they can easily move with you. On a traditional phone system, a line that runs to a home or business is assigned its own phone number. Any movement involves entering long codes or keys to dial on your phone. You also need to waste time transferring services and phone numbers to new locations. With VoIP, all of this is eliminated. There are no physical limitations.
VoIP phone systems allow you to multi-task with tech-savvy devices and increase your productivity. If you receive an important message in a voicemail, you can forward that voicemail to team members at the click of a mouse. Features can be added or subtracted to meet your needs and grow with your business.
Easier Conference Calling
Traditional phone systems charge more to hose multiple callers for conference calls. Conference call services are native to many VoIP phone systems. Additionally, VoIPs make video conferences much easier.
Do Business Anywhere
In today’s global economy, businesses are located everywhere. Business today often requires travel. With VoIP service, you never lose the ability to conduct important calls when you’re on the road. VoIP allows you to choose where your calls ring and how. For example, you choose to have the first few rings to go to your office. If you’re not there, the next rings can be redirected to your mobile or laptop. You’ll never miss another urgent call again.
