There are a number of distinct advantages to using a business VoIP system. This brief article will highlight several benefits that small businesses, large corporations and public sector industries may want to take into consideration.
- Cost – Hosted VoIP services are significantly less than traditional telecommunication services. Monthly fees are greatly reduced for local, long distance and even international calling services.
- PC-to-PC – Often times many providers allow online software, for example Skype and other chat programs, to communicate with customers.
- Features – Business VoIP systems provide rich features that traditional telecommunication services lack. For example, companies can choose local area codes in different regions to allow customers to save on long-distance phone calls.
- Bundle Services – A number of services are typically offered with VoIP, including call logs, call reports, unified messaging, message on hold, desktop integration, online fax, ring groups, Visual Dial Plan Editor, Intercom, auto attendants, voicemail, caller ID, music on hold, call routing, virtual extensions, dial-by-name directory, call forwarding, call recording, call queues, find-me follow-me, speed dial, custom schedules, remote access, LDAP Integration, call transfers, online PBX controls and more. Additionally, these features are offered in a user-friendly online format.
- Adding VoIP – Even if a company already has a main telephone line, adding additional VoIP lines is extremely cost effective.
