Voice over Internet Protocol May Sound Complicated, but It Can Save You Money
Good communication is more important than ever, especially today when margins are thinner and remote collaboration is a staple for many organizations. Today, we want to share with you four benefits that come from utilizing a hosted VoIP solution.
Benefit #1 - Cost Reduction
It’s often the case that small businesses struggle to pay the bills necessary for services from high-profile, big-name companies, leading them to instead invest in cloud-based solutions that can save them money and fit neatly into their budgets. Hosted VoIP is managed and maintained by the provider, meaning that the costs are vastly reduced. Plus, companies who use VoIP don’t have to spend money to run additional phone cables throughout their site of business; VoIP uses your Internet connection, and since VoIP-enabled phones can plug right into your workstation or other hardware, they are incredibly easy to add to an existing infrastructure.
Benefit #2 - Flexibility
One huge benefit of VoIP is that it gives businesses flexibility. You pay for the services on a month-to-month basis, and since you are essentially using an application rather than true hardware, you can choose the device you want to use it on, be it Android or iOS or even your desktop. Yes, that means no more long contracts or large up-front costs associated with them. Plus, if you need to add a new user, all you have to do is add an account and set up the software on the phone.
Benefit #3 - Mobility
VoIP accounts come with the ability to sync a mobile device to the number, allowing users to use their own personal mobile device for business calls from the same number as their office phone. Some businesses might pay a premium to get their employees on their preferred mobile platform, a process which can include buying mobile devices, paying for services and data plans, and more. Through VoIP and a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, you get all the benefits of a built-in mobile platform without adding further costs to your budget.
Benefit #4 - Options
One of the biggest benefits that a VoIP system provides for businesses is the sheer number of options available for communication and collaboration. Today, these options are absolutely critical and one of the biggest reasons that organizations have managed to stay afloat. Through the use of video conferencing systems and other great features, employees can stay connected even while out of the office.
