Business VoIP: The Prudent Choice of Telephony for Companies this New Year
WhichVoIP, a Web site that educates users on the diverse offerings available in the residential and business VoIP market, says companies looking to save some money the New Year should transition to business VoIP phone service.
Business VoIP, according to WhichVoIP, allows companies to save money without sacrificing the quality of their service. VoIP is an affordable alternative to companies transitioning from traditional landline-based telephony. By merging voice and data over a single network, VoIP has led to substantial reductions in communication costs while offering better call management and routing facilities.
Business VoIP has already encroached into many business environments. It’s no longer the technology of tomorrow. The stunning growth of VoIP is evident from the fact that it has resulted in 75 percent of all international calls being made over the Internet.
Advantages of business VoIP phone service are many. Apart from offering affordable domestic and international calling, the service eliminates the need for in-house PBX hardware and related maintenance required for traditional telephony systems. Additionally, the service allows free calls between staffers at the main office, staffers who work from their homes, and even international locations.
Another area of innovation in business VoIP is the value added features and functionality offered at no extra charge. VoIP also offers a telephony service that is not interrupted by a power outage or natural calamity.
Business VoIP users find the migration to VoIP very simple and cost effective. They need not install new hardware or migrate to new numbers. The existing telephone numbers can be used on VoIP.
“Savvy decision-makers in the business world are attracted to the cost-savings associated with VoIP phone service,” said Mike Bragg, CFO of WhichVoIP, in a statement. “But these decision-makers also want phone service solutions which are cost-effective --- meaning that the quality is there. And, they are finding that VoIP is the answer.”
While there has been rapid growth within the business VoIP market over the last year, VoIP services still comprise less than one quarter of fixed lines and a negligible amount of wireless lines, says Exact Ventures, a market intelligence and advisory firm.
