We’re willing to bet you’re quite used to using landline phones. They’ve been in existence our whole lives. But truth be told, they’re not as popular as they once were. After all, everyone uses smartphones these days, whether they’re at home or out on the town. So, as a business owner, is hooking up landline phones really necessary? Let’s take a look at why VoIP telephony wins the battle against landlines.
Okay, let’s just start off with a quick dose of obvious reality. Everyone in the world prefers to save money over spending it unnecessarily. This is the first concern that VoIP telephony addresses. Your landline phone bills don’t likely have a history of being cost-friendly. Just take a look at the charges you incurred for your last long distance phone call. Those charges certainly add up over time!
With a VoIP phone system, you will very easily and significantly lower your phone bill. Long distance charges don’t exist considering you’re using the internet to place your calls. There’s no simpler way to put this. VoIP is your less expensive option.
To be fair, landline phones are generally reliable. One big plus is that they continue to operate when the electricity goes out. Connections with callers are usually pretty strong and consistent. But let’s not forget that it’s 2020. Landlines, quite frankly, are becoming obsolete. Many Canadians have already stopped using them altogether. That means that many households don’t use traditional phones anymore and telecom companies are taking notice.
VoIP doesn’t just provide reliable, crystal clear calling. It’s the wave of the future. That means you can depend on it being around for the long haul. It appears destined to become the top source for phone communication. After all, look how many other internet-based methods we use to communicate. Between email, social media and messaging apps, the internet is more relied upon today than ever before.
With VoIP, you have the ability to use pretty much any device you like when it comes to making and taking calls. Use your mobile phone, laptop, tablet, desktop computer – the choice is yours! With a landline, of course, you need a traditional telephone that is plugged into the wall.
But about those features – VoIP telephony gives you so many! With landlines, you can depend on caller ID and call waiting as staples. VoIP steps it up with such features as conference calling, voicemail to your email, incoming call routing, Click 2 Call, custom hold music, after hours routing, call recording and out of office options.
