How does VoIP work?
I guess we can’t start listing the advantages of VoIP if you aren’t quite sure how VoIP works. So, let us explain. VoIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol- aka phone service that uses the internet instead of a phone company. That means if you have internet, you have a working phone line. It works very similar to a regular office phone and some even use the same phones on business VoIP systems. VoIP converts standard telephone audio into a digital format that can be sent over the internet, received and transmitted back into telephone audio. Bored yet? Now let’s talk about how it can benefit your business.
What’s so great about VoIP?
Prices for VoIP are usually much lower than traditional phone lines, or even some cloud-based phone systems. This is simply because it doesn’t have to use existing phone lines from the phone company. You are already paying for internet- why not have that money pay for your phones too?
Communicate from Anywhere
Working from home is not just a Fifth Harmony song. It’s a trend going on around the country. The internet is a beautiful thing that allows employees to ditch the corporate suits and long commutes (rhyming is fun) for work days that take place on the couch in pajamas (aka the American dream).
If your company has a work from home policy or virtual employees, VoIP will keep everyone in sync (insert Justin Timberlake reference here) and communications running smoothly. Your conference calls will also be way more efficient and fun (haven’t you always wanted to have the power to mute your annoying colleagues?
Easy to use features to make your life easier
Not quite ready to volunteer for Geek Squad? No problem. VoIP is easy to install and requires little knowledge of technology to use. Some people claim that it is even easier than dealing with the setup and cables of a traditional office phone. Don’t worry about phone jacks or hardware. VoIP runs on software, meaning you can just download and add whatever features and components you need. Avoid the anguish and frustration that can come with setting up or adding to your traditional phone lines with business VoIP systems.
