How often do you go to work and stay at your desk for the duration of the business day? Business owners rarely stick to their desk and most have a hard time keeping their business activities confined to a standard eight-hour work day. As the business world changes, businesses must adapt to keep up with their competitors and technology must accommodate the changes in how we do business. VoIP (voice over internet protocol) is a phone system that helps you adapt to the changing business world and offer a wide range of benefits to the business:
1. No On-Site Equipment Needed With Hosted Phone Solutions
VoIP is a hosted phone solution, which means we handle the equipment for you. You won’t need to find space in your office or hire contractors to run wires or make it possible to transfer calls from one employee to another. We set it all up for you, including hosting of the system.
2. Designed for Business Growth
If you’re looking for a phone solution that will work in multiple locations or can be easily transported, VoIP is the answer. VoIP will work for you whether your employees are all in one office or spread out across the country, working remotely from their home offices. When you grow your business, your phone system will grow right alongside you and provide the same communication system simply by adding more phones.
3. Use Your Phone and Features Anywhere You Have An Internet Connection
One of the lesser known benefits of a VoIP solution is the ability to take your office phone and all of its features with you even when you’re traveling. Redirect your phone numbers to wherever you are (your mobile phone, or your hotel room, for example) and your customers or employees will never know you are in a different location. Access messages or transfer calls just as you would from your office.
4. Always Up to Date
Since the VoIP solution doesn’t require hardware, any updates that are required will be received automatically. You won’t have to update anything manually or remember to check for updates.
5. Reduce Your Phone Bill and Administrative Costs
Your VoIP system will provide a predictable monthly bill for your phone service, which will save you 30-60% from your current phone bill. Additionally, many business owners find they can reduce the number of receptionists they hire because of the VoIP system’s ability to greet callers and provide a menu system to direct calls where they need to go.
VoIP technology offers smaller businesses the opportunity to compete with larger businesses. Communication tools that were previously only available to larger businesses with more money to spend are now available on a smaller business budget. Let’s talk about your phone and communication needs and see whether VoIP is a good solution for your business.
