If you’ve never heard of VoIP, get ready to change the way you think about long-distance phone calls.
VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a method for taking analog signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the phone, and turning them into digital data that can be transmitted over the Internet.
Benefits of switching to VoIP
1. LOWER COST
The bottom line is vital for every business, large or small. So, you have to consider every cost-saving opportunity. One way companies can realize significant cost savings is by adopting a VoIP phone system.
On average, a landline phone system (Telkom) costs businesses R390.00 per line each month. This rate comprises local (and sometimes domestic) calls only. VoIP plans, in contrast, are available for less than R100.00 per line.
That’s right. Going by these figures means, VoIP can lower your phone bill by more than half of what it is right now. It's important to note that a shift to VoIP is not a guarantee that your phone expenses will plummet. Businesses differ, and so do their needs. But what you can be sure about is that switching to VoIP will bring about considerable cost savings. Cost savings in VoIP come in two ways: direct and indirect.
2. Savings with Remote Work
Switching to VoIP lets employees stay connected to the corporate phone system while working remotely. This is thanks to the long list of VoIP phone features like call waiting, auto-attendant, instant video calling, conference calling, and others not provided by traditional phones.
Studies show that this not only can increase employee productivity, but it can also cut down on utilities and office space.
3. Increased Accessibility
Cost efficiency aside, accessibility is one of the biggest benefits of VoIP for business. One distinct advantage cloud-based VoIP service offers is the ability to make calls from anywhere. If you have a decent data connection, you can make and receive calls for your business.
And when you're unable to answer the call, you can direct calls to another person or get voicemails emailed to you. A noted benefit of VoIP is the ability to take your business phone with you with nothing more than a softphone app. In an increasingly mobile workforce, remote accessibility allows your business to be flexible.
Mobile employees can stay productive regardless of their location. What’s more: VoIP adapts based on how your employees work. Employees don’t need to be physically present at the office. They can work on their smartphones and tablets from anywhere.
