Voice over IP phone systems revolutionize voice communications for small businesses by providing plenty of big benefits. VoIP uses the Internet to send signals as opposed to standard telco phone lines. Let’s go over a few major benefits that businesses see when they switch to VoIP.
Everybody likes saving money. Voice over IP boasts drastically cheaper calls, including long distance and international calling. Often, businesses can see a reduction of more than 50% of their monthly phone bill, and sometimes as much as 70%. Businesses that have multiple locations that are considered long-distance can make calls between offices for free. Take a look at your current monthly phone bill and cut it in half. Even if it isn’t much, think about how much your business would save over the course of a year.
One of the coolest features of Voice Over IP phone systems has to be their flexibility. Want to allow employees to work from home? Are you sending your team to an event but want them to be able to work effectively from the hotel room? VoIP phones don’t need to be tethered to the office. Simply connect them into Ethernet or into your laptop’s USB port. As long as they can connect to the internet, they will act as if you are sitting in your office. Make and receive calls, check your voice mail, and communicate quickly and easily without missing a beat.
For businesses that have had to add additional desks for new employees as your company expands, you know it can be a complex, expensive endeavor. Voice over IP phones can plug into USB or Ethernet, and there are also Wi-Fi capable phones as well, meaning you don’t need to run a separate phone line and ensure there is room on your phone panel for it. It’s one less thing to worry about when onboarding additional staff.
