Business VoIP Enables Growth, Movement

People like to move. That’s good because movement is good for us.

Movement can help us control weight, be happier and healthier, and connect with others. Even if we’re not necessarily exercising, travel, working from Starbucks, or even moving from one room to another for a change a scenary can help use reboot and boost our energy levels. So it’s really great when we have employment situations and business tools that provide the flexibility to work where we’ve most comfortable, and to check in when we’re on the move.

Business VoIP can allow for that by providing workers with the same accessibility and communication features whether they’re using a desk phone at headquarters or at home or communicating with softphones on their mobile devices.

Speaking of communication features, business VoIP is rich with them. VoIP solutions offered by companies such as Nextiva include such features as advanced call forward, anonymous call rejection, auto attendant, busy lamp field, call group, call parking, call recording, call return, call waiting, conference bridge, custom ringback, directed call pickup, music on hold, team presence, voicemail to email messaging, and voicemail to text.

Nextiva also says that operational and setup costs for VoIP are low while those for landline are high. VoIP support multimedia communications whereas landline services do not. And it’s easy and inexpensive to scale with VoIP, but with landline you need extra lines and phones when you add new people.

Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Nextiva is one of the fastest-growing cloud-based business communications providers in the country. It counts Allstate, Conan, IBM, Netflix, and Target among its customers. And Frost & Sullivan notes Nextiva’s “customer service excellence.”
