If you’re still making use of traditional landlines to conduct business, you’re not necessarily living in the stone ages – but it’s going to feel like it pretty soon! Companies all across Canada are making the switch to VoIP and are enjoying benefits that were once unheard of. However, there are many business owners who haven’t yet reaped those benefits. They remain of the mind that there is no big difference between traditional landlines and VoIP telephony.
Well, here are three big ones:
1. The savings. This is usually the first on the list when it comes to VoIP benefits. Naturally, it’s important for business owners to cut costs as much as they can without hurting their companies. When making the switch to VoIP, business owners automatically save themselves money thanks to the absence of long distance charges. With MeloTel’s VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services, customers get unlimited calling to more than 22 countries!
As well, they also enjoy our FREE Polycom Phone Program which ensures free telephones for the length of time that they are MeloTel customers. By not having to spend money on hardware, our customers stand to profit in ways that they were unable to before. As well, with the number of features that come with our phone services, it’s practically impossible not to improve upon customer relationships.
2. The features. As mentioned, VoIP telephony provides a wide array of calling features – many of which are unavailable with traditional landlines. Take Voicemail to your Email, for example. This incredible service sends voicemails to your email inbox as mp3 files. That way, you’re able to listen to and store your messages on your desktop computer, laptop or tablet if you choose. VoIP gives you options that regular phones do not.
MeloTel’s Commercial Phone Services also come with incoming call routing, custom hold music, call conferencing, out of office options, call waiting, caller ID and call transfers. Because our services are cloud-based, it also allows for cool calling features like Single Number Reach which rings five different devices of your choice when your one local business phone number is called. You’ll never miss another important call again!
3. The portability. This is arguably the biggest difference between VoIP and traditional landlines. With VoIP, you can make and take calls anywhere in the world just as easily as you would if you were working out of your office. As long as you have an internet connection, you can log in to your VoIP telephone and get a dial tone. Simply use a headset or IP phone and you can contact your clients at any time from anywhere.
By the way, MeloTel customers have the option of keeping their own telephone numbers even after they make the switch to VoIP. We enable new customers to port their old numbers so that they are not lost. Therefore, they do not have to start all over again with establishing contact information with their target audiences. MeloTel includes one local or toll-free number porting with any term commitment. Additional numbers may be subject to one-time porting charges of $20 each.
