Running a business involves taking chances and edging out competition in an ever-changing struggle. Delivering a seamless experience to customers generates loyalty and puts forth a confident, professional image.
Behind the scenes, you need to leverage innovation to save time and money whenever possible. For small and large establishments alike, transitioning to VoIP phones for business makes sense.
The technology has come a long way from its early inception when data speeds were slow and costs high. Modern VoIP services cost less than telephones and offer more features to drive your business.
Cost Advantages of VoIP
A chief advantage of VoIP services is the cost. Unlike regular telephone services that track the distance of the call and gate through areas to affix a cost, VoIP is always just a call.
The decentralized nature of the Internet means it costs the same to make a call from Australia to Canada as it does down the hall.
A traditional call uses more brute force, with the signal traveling between the two points in an analog fashion. Not only does this take up simultaneous resources but it takes them up mile by mile.
With VoIP, sophisticated packet and data transmission protocols move the information along a single avenue. Even high-volume calling can be handled with a single resource.
Additionally, because so much of VoIP is handled through software, you save money on hardware costs. Instead of spending on hardware that can branch phonelines, such as a PBX system, it’s all down to using Session Initiated Protocols (SIP Trunk).
With so many businesses already requiring broadband connection to empower the rest of their business services and offerings, there is no need for additional infrastructure or equipment.
Feature Advantages of VoIP
VoIP offers flexibility and additional features that traditional phone services tack on as extras.
Call waiting, remote working, caller ID, and more are just components of VoIP services.
These features are also programmable per device and user. You don’t need to make a single decision for every unit in a company, it can be done on a case by case basis.
Mobility Advantages of VoIP
Since VoIP connects to software, not a dedicated line, it has superior portability to landlines and even mobile devices.
A VoIP number can be accessed anywhere there is an Internet connection. This allows an employee to check their work phone messages from anywhere. With so many working remotely at this time, it also lets you make a seamless transition between office and home.
Calls made from any location to any other location (be it another VoIP or other handset) can be traced.
This provides accountability for employee use and also lets you keep tabs on information security.
We’ve only scratched the surface. These are the most common advantages of VoIP phones for business, but this isn’t an exhaustive list. Whether you need a single line, a dozen, or a hundred VoIP connects you to the world quickly and at a savings. Contact Vegas Telecom for more information and get started today.
