What is VoIP?
VoIP, or “Voice over Internet Protocol,” enables you to place and receive phone calls over the internet rather than a traditional phone line.
As a result, VoIP is a far more powerful way to communicate because users can place calls from dedicated handsets, from desktops, from laptops, or even from a mobile app.
Today, VoIP telephone system proves to be most essential as current business trends call for remote and flexible work setup while staying involved in all the operations.
So how can VoIP help your company? Let’s explore the ways it benefits businesses today.
1. Cost effectiveness
Compared to traditional phone lines which require installing expensive infrastructure, VoIP solely relies on the internet to make or receive calls, making domestic and long-distance calls cheaper overall. Moreover, you can choose from a wide and flexible range of solutions. This also eliminates cost of training personnel and the physical space to hold communications systems. Simply pay a monthly fee to your service provider to enjoy extremely effective hosted VoIP.
A traditional phone system usually runs to a home or business assigned to its own phone number. Any movement that takes place then becomes a trial of remembering the right codes or keys to dial on your phone. Not to mention, time-consuming. With VoIP however, you can carry your communications infrastructure anywhere that you go. All you need is Internet or IP connectivity.
VoIP offers a huge degree of flexibility as far as voice communications are concerned. With VoIP, you can integrate your systems with a host of other applications your business may be using such as email services, social networking, web browsers, instant messaging services and so on. You can even have a button on an email that allows you to place a voice call.
One of the most common misconceptions on VoIP is when the internet stops working, so does the ability to make calls. You can avoid this by call-forwarding, one of the valuable features of VoIP phone systems.
You can choose where and how your calls are forwarded so don’t have to lose productivity because of local power outages or weather-related events. The office phone can’t be answered? Your mobile device or laptop can.
