You run a business. You have a business phone line. It’s literally connected into the wall. You pick the phone up and you get a dial tone. Basically, you’re using technology that’s been around for decades and really hasn’t improved much at all. Now, don’t feel bad! You’re certainly not alone. However, it’s time to take your business to the next level by bringing its telephone situation into the modern world.
As the title of today’s blog has made clear, your company needs VoIP telephony now! Let’s discuss why, shall we?
Let’s begin with what piques the interest of nearly all business owners – savings. If you want to do away with long distance charges, VoIP is for you. To be clear, cloud-hosted phone services utilize the internet to make and take calls. Therefore, calling a foreign country is not much different than emailing a person in that same far-off location. The bottom line is that VoIP operating costs are significantly lower than traditional phone lines.
“According to a recent survey by Consumer Reports, people who have purchased a VoIP service are reportedly saving around $50 each month on their phone bill,” reports VoIPReview.org.
In addition to eliminating long distance charges, VoIP telephony offers you such automatic features as Voicemail to your Email, call forwarding, call conferencing, incoming call routing, custom hold music, call waiting, caller ID and much more. Having all of these features enables you to become a far better communicator.
For example, Voicemail to your Email sends your messages to your email inbox as mp3 files. That way, you can listen to your voicemails and save them on any device of your choosing. The feature makes it practically impossible to ever miss another important message again!
You know what happens when you use a traditional phone line that has its phone connected to sockets in the wall? You’re practically stuck to the wall yourself! With VoIP, your business phone travels with you. As long as you have a broadband connection and a receiver, you can login and make and take calls anywhere using any device. Your business phone line can be accessed on your smartphone, your laptop computer, your tablet, your desktop computer – the choice is yours!
“Most VoIP providers allow users to take their VoIP service with them anywhere in the world,” notes VoIPReview.org, “With high-speed Internet and a VoIP phone adapter, callers can place and accept VoIP calls from any location, at any time, for no additional charge. This feature is often referred to as ‘Work from Anywhere’. In addition, certain providers offer smartphone apps for both iOS and Android, allowing their consumers to take full advantage of their VoIP features on the go.”
