3 Reasons To Go VoIP In 2019

At MeloTel, we’re pretty amped about the fact that, in the past ten years, we have gone from a start-up phone company to a one-stop shop for all business needs. In those ten years, however, we haven’t forgotten what brought us to the dance. Offering North American business owners opportunities to switch from their age-old landline phones to VoIP-based systems has enabled MeloTel to help revolutionize the way people do business.

In 2019, we’d like to do the same for you! Here are three reasons to go VoIP in 2019:

1. You’re going to save a lot of cash.

Admittedly, this is usually the first thing we mention to prospective clients because we know how important it is to just about everyone to save money. While we wouldn’t necessarily consider savings the most important benefit of VoIP, it’s certainly very significant. Let’s just put it this way: say “goodbye” to long distance charges and other overpriced bills by going with a cloud-based phone service. You’ll notice the savings right away!

“If you don’t use VoIP for voice communication, then you are most certainly using the good old phone line (PSTN – Packet-Switched Telephone Network),” explains Nadeem Unuth on Lifewire.com, “On a PSTN line, time really is money. You actually pay for each minute you spend communicating on the phone. International calls are much more expensive. Since VoIP uses the Internet as a backbone, the only cost you have when using it is the monthly Internet bill to your ISP.”

2. It allows you to work from remote locations.

Thanks to VoIP, you can take your office with you wherever you go. If you need to work from a remote location at any given time, you can simply forward your business phone to your cell phone so that you never have to give out your mobile number again. You can even take advantage of the fascinating Single Number Reach feature which enables you to forward your business phone to up to five different devices all at once!

“VoIP combines the best of your landline phone with the mobility and rich functionality of a mobile phone,” says Dennis Peng on Ooma.com, “With a landline phone, you’re not limited to a single phone to use your service, so you can place them anywhere you have a phone jack. With a mobile phone, only one phone will ring per number…With VoIP, you can have the same functionality regardless of the platform you use, so you never miss a phone call.”

3. Conference calling is made a breeze.

Part of the revolutionary aspect of VoIP is that it enables business owners to conduct virtual meetings. Through the conference call feature, you can have several people join one phone call as if they were all in the same room at the same time. Conference calling features help for businesses to be a lot more efficient, saving them both time and money on travel for important business meetings.

“On the phone line, only two persons can speak at a time,” points out Unuth, “With VoIP, you can set up a conference with a whole team communicating in real time. VoIP compresses data packets during transmission, and this causes more data to be handled by the carrier. As a result, more calls can be handled on one access line.”
