Look, we’ve already discussed the advantages of using VoIP over traditional phones, and you asked for it- so we gave you the 7 most frequently asked questions about VoIP equipment. We also went into detail on our post about why office phones suck. We have compared traditional phone services versus VoIP many times.
We became a business phone solutions provider because we wanted to offer the best prices for business VoIP. We are dialed into the market and we want to change the game. You hear us calling? Then pick it up!
For those who still need convincing, this is it. No more Mr. Nice VoIP Phone Service. The gloves are off, our phones are set to the loudest ring volume, and we are taking them off “Do Not Disturb”. This is why we believe that traditional phone services will be the end of the world.
Number 1 – You Can’t Go Mobile
The most notable difference between traditional phone services versus VoIP is mobility. And when the world comes to an end, you really better be able to go mobile. Just because the world is ending doesn’t mean you can get out of that 3:00 PM conference with Stan Grossman- and you know he’s going to email you nonstop until you dial in.
You’ll be stuck at your desk during the end of the world and it will all be your traditional PBX phone’s fault.
Number 2 – Missed Calls
Have you ever heard of the butterfly effect? In 1973, at the 139th meeting of the American Association of Science, Edward Lorenz asked: “Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?” .
Now we ask, how many calls have you missed that could have mean more business, how many lost voicemails could have changed the course of your business, your life? How could the course of the world itself change if we had better, more reliable communication? PBX phones are just not reliable, and that missed call could be the end of the world, or at the very least, a lost client.
Number 3 – It’s Not Easy
Stress levels are on the rise and it’s killing Americans. 61% of Americas cite work as the most common source of stress . So, why add more stress by using a terrible phone? How are we going to survive into the 22nd century when we are stressing ourselves out to an early grave? This unnecessary stress needs to end, and we can start removing traditional PBX phones.
They are difficult to set up, expensive, unreliable in bad weather, and some are just not user friendly. Why does it take people a month to get their office phone working at a new job? Because those traditional PBX phone suck and because the choice between traditional phone services versus VoIP is easy.
They are ending us all!
