Our partner BullsEye Telecom has developed this great list of the top 9 Hosted VoIP benefits that aren’t offered by traditional phone systems. Check it out:
It’s clear to see that VoIP is the winner when it comes to cost-effectiveness and convenience…but more than just helping companies save money while enjoying great features, VoIP also offers other powerful benefits that smart businesses are taking full advantage of.
  1. The World Becomes Your Office: unlike traditional phone lines that keep workers chained to their desks, VoIP gives greater mobility. You and your colleagues can tap into the office phone system from any place in the world with an Internet connection. Geographical boundaries disappear. Even when travelling out of the country, you can send and receive calls using the same number people use to reach you at work. With such streamlined communications, it’s easy to keep your finger on the pulse of business, no matter how far away you are from the office.
  2. No More Investing in Hardware That Will Eventually Become Obsolete: the sad truth is that traditional phone equipment begins to depreciate in value the moment you install it. When your hardware reaches its “end of life,” it can no longer be supported or upgraded, resulting in the purchase of a replacement system. The same thing happens if your equipment breaks down. You will have to spend money on spare parts and repair fees. In contrast, a hosted VoIP plan does not require you to purchase equipment. A third party provides the hardware at an offsite location and you will only be paying for the use of this hardware. Plus, software updates are delivered automatically and at no extra cost.
  3. Enhance Your Business Image: Using an inefficient phone system can hurt your business in more ways than you can imagine. It could adversely affect customer satisfaction and even lead to missed business opportunities. With a solid hosted VoIP plan, your company’s workflow becomes more streamlined. Communications are unified and your employees are empowered to respond quickly to clients. Overall, it becomes effortless for your business to appear highly organized and efficient.
