Switching to a VoIP-based Phone System
First of all, lets cover what VoIP actually is.
VoIP is short for Voice over Internet Protocol and was originally launched in 1995. This phone system has changed the way we communicate as it does not require a landline or any wiring. A VoIP system can come in 3 forms.
You can have VoIP through a wireless phone, desktop or soft phone. Softphone is a software that sits on your computer or is downloaded to a smartphone. After you have set up your VoIP system you can dial anywhere in the world, and anyone can call you.
The underlying technology makes talking to people over the phone as simple as sending a direct message over social media. As long as you have a good internet connection you are good to go!
To perform using VoIP you will also need the following equipment which most businesses will already have! A computer, adaptor, or a specialized phone. Some VoIP services only work over your computer or a special VoIP phone, while other services allow you to use a traditional phone connected to a VoIP adapter. If you use your computer, you will need some software and an inexpensive headset and that is all.
Special VoIP phones plug directly into your broadband connection and operate largely like a traditional telephone. If you use a telephone with a VoIP adapter, you will be able to dial just as you always have. (1) + (2)
There are so many benefits of having a VoIP-based Phone System in place for your business. Any business that already has a broadband connection can very easily add a VoIP phone system.
One of the main features of VoIP that makes it very appealing to the average user is the cost. Rather than paying a long-distance fee to your landline provider or racking up charges making international calls on a mobile, you pay a low fee to a VoIP provider which connects through the internet at a much cheaper rate!
VoIP allows you to create a bigger presence for your business; want to have an international presence in locations you are not yet in? With VoIP you can have the best of both worlds. Moving office? No problem, just take the phones to your new office, plug them in and you are ready to go!
It also allows you to have multiple offices working seamlessly together regardless of location. You could have offices all around the world but have them still working as one office!
