In the business world – no matter what type of business you own – it’s always beneficial to be able to get a leg up on your competition. As a business owner, you want all the advantages you can get. At MeloTel, we’re extremely clear about one of the best advantages your business can make use of. And that’s VoIP telephone technology! The incredible strides that businesses have been able to take, thanks to VoIP, are many. Are you taking advantage of them?
Just as a quick refresher, VoIP stands for “Voice over Internet Protocol”. And it refers to the method by which phone calls are made using the internet versus traditional land lines. Since the inception of this technology, many business owners have chosen to utilize it in order to better their businesses. But how exactly does it improve the way you do business? Well the advantages are many. But here are just three.
1. It is portable. Unlike with traditional phone lines, your phone number doesn’t have to change if you make the move to VoIP technology. This is especially important if your business itself is moving physical locations. Even if you’re moving your business into a new area code, VoIP allows you to maintain the same phone number so that your current clients aren’t left in the dark about how to contact you. You can even operate your business without a physical location!
Remember that because VoIP operates “over the cloud”, all you need is a computer network and a login ID and password. It’s really no different from logging in to your email. As long as an internet connection is available, either yourself or an employee can create a workstation that allows for calls to be made and received from just about anywhere in the world. Each member of your staff gets to maintain a dedicated line whether at home, in the office or on vacation!
2. It saves you money. All good business owners know that an important part of making more money is saving the money that you’re making. And thanks to VoIP, business owners are no longer paying for those traditional long distance charges that came on the bills from their previous telephone providers. Because the internet is used to connect your calls, you’re not expected to pay for those interconnection charges the way you used to.
At MeloTel, we offer prospective clients the ability to get an assessment for free. In other words, we’d be happy to review your current telecom bills in order to specifically show you just how much money you can save each month by making the switch to our VoIP telephone technology. There is no obligation to switch if you opt for the assessment. It’s just an easy way to find out how much you can improve your bottom line.
3. It provides numerous unique functions. VoIP technology doesn’t just allow you to make and receive phone calls with more ease. It provides a wide variety of additional functions. You can assign multiple numbers to your company, define extensions and have all of your calls answered by professionally recorded welcome messages. It includes features that allow your callers to select from such options as dial-by-name or dial-by-extension to find specific representatives of your company.
VoIP-based phone systems can also route calls to appropriate departments and even forward incoming calls to other phone numbers in locations outside of your office. Features also include voice mails in your email inbox that are saved as WAV files so that you never miss another important message again. Conference calling is also an amazing advantage of VoIP technology. And the advantages only begin with the ones mentioned in today’s blog!
