From phone call cost to reliability, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) might be the difference between being in the black and considered a competent company versus the alternative of doing things the same way, and thus suffering consequences.
To simplify things, VOIP is technology that allows you to make phone calls over the internet, with focus being on call clarity and quality, along with benefit of price and reliability as well.
For some, VOIP is an unknown entity, one that is unclear as far as benefits go, and scary for others since relying on the internet for, well, everything can be a bit uneasy.
That feeling should only sweep through the annals of your office if your internet connection is poor, and if you’re running a business that shouldn’t be the case.
VOIP and subsequent technology upgrades have allowed that notion to be dispelled rather quickly and with great ease being afforded to customers who want VOIP but once remained a bit timid.
The benefits of VOIP and your business are too great to ignore, starting with the cost.
If your company is looking to save money (and what company isn’t), you might consider the benefit of VOIP as it relates to not only free calls of a domestic standpoint but also international calling made smart and easier, not to mention much less expensive. If your company does business internationally, VOIP is a no brainer.
If you’re also someone who travels and wants access to office voicemails, you can do that with VOIP, having them forwarded to your cell phone so that a two week business trip allows you to have the in office access you desire.
Even if you don’t know much or anything about VOIP, you certainly no the benefits of being able to video call or, on any level of business, just how important conference calls can be from a productivity standpoint. You can run a conference call that allows you to make a video presentation and truly engage in the process of sharing information with high quality interaction between you and a colleague or a potential client or customer.
While VOIP might not be a part of any and all businesses just yet, you’d have to believe with a plethora of benefits and cost reducing measures without sacrificing quality, that this technology is tailor made for all.
Being unsure of VOIP means you are just playing it safe, but that mindset is only going to keep your business in the past and not in tune with taking the next step technologically speaking.
