There is no denying there’s been a definite increase in the amount of businesses turning to office VoIP phone systems over this last few years, but what are the real benefits of this technology and can it really make a difference to your business?
Office VoIP Phone Systems
Office VoIP phone systems are distinctly different from a traditional phone system in that they allow users to make phone calls over the internet. Because of this it means that you can call people from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection, with many providers offering monthly charges all inclusive.
In addition, the technology enables businesses to have a phone system that’s modified to their business needs. Unlike a traditional phone system (PBX), VoIP offers a great deal of flexibility and scalability. It provides extra features such as call forwarding, call waiting, voicemail, caller ID, three-way or multiple connections and more.
You can also add and remove lines easily, allowing you to scale up or down as your business changes. If you decide to move your office to a new location or you want to work from home, you can very easily simply by plugging handsets into the new location. Also, if you do move offices you never have to worry about keeping your existing phone number as it goes with you wherever that might be.
Many phones also come with audio enhancements and external speakers which can make the sound quality better than a traditional telephone service as long as you have a strong enough Internet connection.
Every business looks for ways to save money whilst at the same time providing a high-quality service to their customers, and it’s almost always the case that operational expenditure comes before capital expenditure. One of the most attractive benefits of office VoIP phone systems is that they reduce costs significantly. There is no expensive hardware to pay out for as the only upfront cost is the IP phones themselves. After this it is typically charged as a monthly subscription fee per user.
You also have access to an on-line portal which allows you to manage your entire phone system from anywhere and any device. You can even reduce costs on travel by combining your office VoIP phone system with Cloud Video Conferencing applications.
