Isn’t It Time You Made The Switch To VoIP?

Submitted by Dan Faraldo in MeloTel Features, MeloTel News

At MeloTel, we’ve been championing VoIP telephony since our company’s inception. You could say that it is our brand’s bread and butter. Although we’ve added many amazing cloud-hosted services to our list of features since our company began, we’re proud to say that our VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services continue to be among of our most popular and highly regarded services. But what makes VoIP phones superior to landlines?

Let’s start with cost.

To be perfectly honest, this is the topic that usually arises first when we discuss our phone services with new clients. Allow us to put it plainly: VoIP saves you money! Since it connects callers over the internet, it enables users to avoid the generally high costs associated with long distance calling. MeloTel clients enjoy unlimited calling to more than 22 countries!

Not to mention, we throw in all of the phone equipment for free! Instead of having our clients spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on phones, we provide the hardware for as long as they are MeloTel customers. Our Free Polycom Rental program is designed to make your switch to our cloud-hosted phone services extremely easy and cost-effective. In addition, we cover the costs of porting your numbers to MeloTel and waive all setup, activation and shipping charges.

Let’s continue with VoIP’s wide array of features.

All of the following features are included with MeloTel’s Commercial Phone Services: Call Waiting, Caller ID, Conference Calling, Call Transfer, Incoming Call Routing, Custom Hold Music, Out of Office Options, The MeloTel VoIP Panel and Voicemail to your Email. Readers of the MeloTel Blog are likely aware of just how much we love that last feature in particular.

While all of the features are incredibly worthwhile, we’ve gotten countless kudos for enabling our clients to receive their voicemails as mp3 files in their email inboxes. A VoIP-specific feature, Voicemail to your Email allows you to listen to messages on any device of your choosing (PC, smartphone, telephone, tablet etc.) and store them on your computer devices if you choose. The feature makes it virtually impossible to ever miss another important message!

Let’s round it out with your business growth.

VoIP increases productivity. As soon as you make the switch, you’ll notice just how much more productive your entire staff will be. By using VoIP technology, you and your employees will be able to multi-task without any interruptions. VoIP allows users to conduct virtual meetings, share data via video conferencing and attach documents all at the same time.

VoIP phones have also vastly improved sound quality. Back when VoIP was first introduced, it was known for producing distorted sounds and having calls lag or drop unexpectedly. Today, that is far from the case. Unlike landline technology which hasn’t updated much in decades, enhancements to VoIP technology happen regularly, making it the superior choice for phone calls in today’s business world.
