You have probably upgraded many things about your business, but have you upgraded your phone system? If you are still relying on a landline for your business, it may not be reflecting positively on your corporation.
Assuming you have high-speed internet and enough cable bandwidth, VoIP may be an excellent addition to your operation. After all, your phone system is one of the most important ways to connect with your customers.
Some businesses think that making the switch to VoIP will be too costly. The truth is that small-and-midsize corporations save about 45% annually when they make the switch, and large businesses save even more.
Once you convert to the cloud, there is less upkeep and government regulations.
Remodeling and rearranging your business becomes more manageable because there are fewer wires to deal with when putting up or taking down walls.
If you have a seasonal business or are going through a rough time, but you know it will come back strong, then VOIP allows you to scale your phone service to meet your current and future needs.
Additionally, you have the option of choosing your area code, so you can opt to make your business appear local to many people by choosing several.
Depending on the VoIP service you choose, you can find options with an endless number of features. Most will convert faxes to regular phone calls, so you no longer need to pay for a dedicated fax line.
The majority can also turn phone calls into emails so that you can read them. You can set them to forward your calls to wherever you are working, so you will never miss an important call.
The list of features is almost endless, and you can efficiently train your staff to use a VoIP phone system.
You can be answering phone calls from a beautiful sandy beach instead of a snowy office where you skidded your way to work. If your area is impacted by a governmental executive order, a fire or some other type of disaster, you do not lose your phone service.
You also have the flexibility to decide when and where your phone should ring. For example, you can have the first few rings go to your office and the next couple to your cell phone. Then, if no one answers, you can even have your computer answer the phone.
