When is the last time you heard of someone using a “cell phone”? These days, it’s pretty hard to find someone who isn’t using a “smartphone”. These mini-do-it-all computers have overtaken cell phones as the chief mobile ways that people communicate with each other. Because smartphones allow their users to make phone calls just as easily as they allow people to surf the internet, they are all the rage. And they don’t seem to be going out of style any time soon!
At MeloTel, we feel that the same comparison can be made between traditional landlines and VoIP telephones. While there is still a considerable amount of people who use landlines, there is a steadily growing number of individuals who much prefer Voice over Internet Protocol. And who can blame them? The number of advantages that VoIP provides over landlines parallels the number of advantages that smartphones provide over older model cell phones.
The first and usually most significant difference between VoIP and traditional landlines are the savings. Because VoIP calls take place over the internet, they practically do away with the long distance charges that landline telephone plans are known for. With MeloTel’s Commercial Phone Services, clients are given unlimited calling to more than 22 countries. What landline service does that?
VoIP provides multi-functionality that was once unheard of. Among the many features that are included with our Commercial Phone Services are call waiting, caller ID, conference calling, call transfers, incoming call routing, custom hold music, out of office options and voicemail to your email.
With traditional landlines, you need a lot of hardware. In addition to the telephones themselves is the abundance of wires that generally come along with them. VoIP calling does not require additional hardware. In actuality, the only devices needed are an internet connection and a headset. With VoIP, you could literally turn your laptop computer into a working phone if you wanted to.
As mentioned, VoIP systems utilize the internet, not traditional phone lines. As long as you are connected to the internet, you can make and take phone calls using your business phone number from any location you like. VoIP enables you to conduct business in remote locations. You can work from your office, your home or even in a hotel clear across the continent – all with the same phone line!
Just as you can conduct business over your VoIP phones from anywhere you choose, so can your employees. By simply adding extensions, you can have clients contact members of your company even if they’re working in foreign countries. Getting in touch has never been made so easy! As a result, companies that utilize VoIP phone systems are able to easily expand their operations across the world.
Isn’t it time you begin taking advantage of VoIP? For more information about MeloTel’s VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-888-MELOTEL or use the Live Chat feature on our website!
