Even as technology has continued to evolve and change the way business is done, telephones have been the reliable backbone for many companies. Businesses all over the world rely on phone communications to reach clients and customers alike. However, telephone technology has evolved by leaps and bounds over the past five years. Are you still relying on traditional landlines? It may be time to upgrade your telephony technology with VoIP.
What is VoIP?
VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, uses the internet to transmit your phone signal instead of traditional wired connections. Landlines have used copper phone lines since the 19th century, connecting place to place via these physical wires. VoIP converts your voice into a digital signal which transmits over the internet similar to your other data. This has several benefits for your company.
Benefits of VoIP
VoIP is both less expensive and more scalable than traditional landline phone services. Because it runs over the internet you do not need to pay for expensive wiring, equipment, or installation. Rather, it integrates seamlessly with the technology you already have, streamlining your expenses and lowering your costs. Adding a new user to your VoIP system is fast and simple, making it a good solution for a growing business.
VoIP also provides more functions and features than a traditional telephone service. Users can access their business phone line via any internet connection, including their computer or mobile phone. This allows for increased mobility and employees can receive their business calls whether they’re in the office, working from home, or away on business travel. Voicemail can be routed to text or email, and calls can be automatically redirected to other numbers. VoIP can also integrate into third party tools.
