If you own a business, you understand that your telephone is an essential part of your communication toolbox. This has been the case for more than a century. Unfortunately, though, traditional phone system costs can be expensive. That is why many businesses are turning to VoIP phone systems, the next step in the phone’s evolution. There are a lot of advantages VoIP brings to today’s modern businesses that are essential. Below are some ways VoIP, or voice over Internet protocol, can take your business to the next level.
Lower costs with VoIP
One of the biggest advantages of VoIP is the amount of money it will save your business. Efficiency is taken to a whole new level with VoIP. Since phone calls are received through the Internet, you will no longer need a phone line. Instead, your voice communication and Internet costs are consolidated. This will require you to upgrade to high-speed Internet, though, if you are not already. Many businesses upgrade their Internet speed while saving money since they no longer pay a phone bill and Internet connection fees.
VoIP is a great option for businesses that regularly make international calls. Using VoIP, the cost of calling internationally are significantly reduced.
VoIP services are a great way to help dramatically lower your businesses monthly costs. Statistically speaking, your local call expenses can be reduced around 40%, while international calls can be reduced around 70%. It makes great financial sense.
VoIP, in addition to reducing your costs, provides many features that go above and beyond the traditional phone line. In fact, there are so many extra benefits with VoIP, it would take a several pages to list them all. We will discuss three benefits many businesses enjoy, though.
- Virtual numbers: having the ability to choose a local number anywhere in the world is a huge benefit. If you have a large market of clients in Paris, you can get a virtual number that is local to the area. When someone living in Paris calls the number, it will be transferred to your own phone, regardless of where you are located. Making it easier for your customers to contact you will help grow your business quicker in those areas.
- Routing calls: if you’re ever out and about and worry about missing important phone calls, you can breathe a sigh of relief with call routing. Any incoming phone calls can be transferred to whatever device you choose. For instance, if the phone on your desk rings while you are out, you can have it sent directly to your mobile phone or other device before it is sent to voicemail.
- Better conference calls: using VoIP, you can add an unlimited number of people in a conference call. Better yet, use video conferencing to see others in person.
