In many films that depict the future, we often see amazing advancements in technology. However, many of these films (we’re thinking Back To The Future Part II off hand) present depictions of the future that have now become a reality. With part of the movie set in 2015, that future has now become our past. And some of the fiction has now become our reality.
For example, we can now see the people we talk to when we’re on the phone. Video calling is a normal part of our world, these days. And, this is especially true for individuals who take advantage of VoIP technology. Gone are the days when landline telephones were the only ways to make and take phone calls.
All that is necessary for VoIP calling is an internet connection and a receiver. Calls can take place using traditional telephone equipment as well as laptop and desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. If you’ve yet to take advantage of VoIP telephony for your business, you’re missing out on a number of amazing benefits.
The first and likely most intriguing for business owners is the lower costs of use. Traditional office landline systems use expensive hardware and complicated installations, says SME Pals founder, David Mercer, in a National Federation of Independent Business article by Katie Truesdell.
“Fortunately, with using cloud-based VoIP phones, it’s now possible to set up a system in minutes and with only a few dollars,” he is quoted as explaining in the piece, “That might have taken weeks and a lot of money before.”
One of the most difficult aspects of maintaining a landline to conduct business is that it doesn’t allow for easy scalability. If you have plans of growing your business which involves the addition of new phone agents, you will require new phone lines and hardware when sticking with your old plan. This can be both disruptive and expensive.
VoIP, on the other hand, makes growing your business a lot easier. With VoIP telephony, your business can simply upgrade to another plan or add additional users without the need to purchase more hardware or phone lines. Matt Grech affirms this on GetVoIP.com.
He notes that when it comes to international calling, most traditional phone service providers charge long distance fees by the minute, with individual rates for specific countries. VoIP, however, is pretty inexpensive, by comparison. “Some providers offer Unlimited International Calling Plans, while others charge on a per minute basis as low as $0.02 a minute,” he informs.
At MeloTel, we’re happy to report that we offer our clients unlimited calling to over 22 countries at one set monthly fee for our Commercial Phone Services. In addition, we offer a Free Polycom Rental program which provides our customers with Polycom phones as a Free Phone Rental for as long as they are customers!
