In today’s technologically advanced world, many businesses are switching over to VoIP – Voice over Internet Protocol – communication systems. VoIP business plans are simple: essentially, they convert voice into digital signals that are then transmitted via the Internet. VoIP enabled phones can also call regular telephones, converting the signal to an analog telephone signal.

A Broadband, or high-speed Internet connection, is a requirement for any business using VoIP phone systems. Additionally, specialized adapters or VoIP compatible phones are also necessary.

Jive offers unlimited telephone calls, essentially meaning that local and long-distance calls are no longer differentiated and billed separately. Jive’s services allow businesses to call anyone – albeit it someone who has a mobile, international or analog telephone. The person on the receiving end of the call is not required to have any special equipment.

Jive also offers several features, once only available to large corporation telecommunication systems. Any type of business, even those that are self-employed, can experience the following features: auto attendants, voicemail, caller ID, music on hold, call routing, virtual extensions, dial-by-name directory, call forwarding, call recording, call logs, call reports, unified messaging, message on hold, desktop integration, online fax, ring groups, Visual Dial Plan Editor, intercom, call queues, find-me follow-me, speed dial, custom schedules, remote access, LDAP integration, call transfers, online PBX controls and much more.
