Does your phone system support your business strategy and communication requirements? Have your employees been asking for an updated phone solution that is more secure, reliable, and better quality all around?
What is VOIP?
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. VoIP enables a business to place and receive phone calls over the internet rather than using a traditional phone line. Mobile VoIP is that part of the VoIP technology dealing with the voice-oriented services through a mobile phone. A few popular VoIP features include voicemail/call forwarding, Do Not Disturb, conferencing, call recording, and of course send/receiving calls, text messages, and faxes using their business number. Many small and mid-size businesses have switched over to a VoIP phone system in the past decade. In fact according to Tech.co, “U.S. VoIP business lines jumped from 6.2 million to 41.6 million between 2010 and 2018. About 31 percent of all businesses use VoIP systems.”
Why Does My Business Need a Mobile VOIP Solution?
With a drastic increase of remote teams working from home, relying on a landline or desk phone is no longer practical. Many organizations are evolving to fit the needs of employees that travel often, are always on the go, or work from home regularly. According to PC Mag, “For business users, a Voice-over-IP (VoIP) client that works on your smartphones can make a lot of sense. Especially these days when so many employees are working from home using personal devices.” Keep your employees, vendors, and most important clients connected anywhere, anytime!
Learn 5 Benefits of a Mobile VoIP Phone System for Your Business…
1. Save Money: “Cost savings is one of the benefits of VoIP that virtually any business can appreciate. With communication data being modified into data packets and sent over the IP network, the issue of a single phone line being able to be utilized by only two callers is eliminated. The IP network could be a direct IP connection to your phone service provider or simply your existing internet connect (or a combination of both). Traditional phone lines typically charge for each minute of call time, where with VoIP your only costs are your monthly charges from your ISP.” Panterra Networks
2. Versatility of Features: “Using VoIP phone systems allows you to multi-task with the most tech-savvy devices, allowing you to be the most productive you can be. Suppose you are on a call within a queue. While you are waiting, you can strategize your approach to client calls you have missed as you read voicemail-to-text transcriptions that are sent directly to your email inbox. In another case, you can forward messages and voicemail easily. If you receive an important message in a voicemail, you can forward that voicemail to three other people at the click of a mouse. In short, VoIP telephone systems grow with your business.” Atlantech.net
3. Better Use of Bandwidth: “On of the little known benefits of VoIP is that it makes for a more efficient use of your existing bandwidth. As roughly half of voice conversations are made up of silence, VoIP continues to fill those information gaps with other data from other bandwidth consumers to make better use of your resources. What’s more is that VoIP allows for compression and elimination of speech redundancies to further improve efficiencies.” Panterra Networks
4. Multi-Functional: “Aside from making phone calls, you can also conduct videoconferencing calling through your VoIP phone. This allows you to stay in touch with your co-workers and clients to discuss important deals, affairs, meetings, files, documents, agendas, no matter where you are. Even while you are abroad attending to meetings, you still have the capacity to attend other important meetings in the home office without having to worry about being physically present.” SmallBusiness.Chron.com
5. Reliability: “A common worry that surfaces about VoIP is the fact that if the internet stops working, so does the ability to make calls. This doesn’t have to occur under the right circumstances. The truth is that call-forwarding, like other features in VoIP phone systems, is incredibly flexible. The capability to choose where your calls are forwarded, and how, means that you also don’t have to lose productivity because of local power outages or weather-related events. If the office phone can’t be answered, your mobile device or laptop can.” Atlantech.net
