What is VoIP? Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, delivers your phone connection over the internet. Learn why it's the ideal phone solution for your business.
In times of growth, you need systems and resources that scale with you. When it comes to your business phone system, seemingly limitless scalability is achieved through VoIP. (Also commonly known as voice over IP.) In the most basic sense, VoIP use data connections rather than traditional analog lines to transmit and receive voice calls. Simply put, your business phone service is delivered over the internet.
Many businesses are switching to a hosted voice solution from VoIP providers like Blackfoot. Here are four key reasons businesses today are choosing a VoIP solution.
Save on costs by capping your CapEx.
Traditional office phone systems can be expensive to purchase — especially if you need to buy more phones and lines than you currently use. By contrast, VoIP phone service includes all the equipment and features you need for one monthly fee. There’s no capital expense in setting up a system, which frees up your resources to invest in other assets to fuel your growth.
Easily scale with your business growth.
With VoIP technology, the connection in your office can easily handle voice and data traffic from hundreds of individual phone lines and computers. If you need to add capacity, it's as simple as plugging in another phone to the network. That's why VoIP is ideal for growing businesses. As you expand, VoIP service can easily scale from a few phones and lines, to more than 500 phones and 100 lines.
Seamlessly connect when you're on the go.
Maintain one number for all of your business contacts. Instead of providing your cell phone, desk phone, etc., a hosted VoIP solution makes it seamless to connect on the go. Common features include virtual receptionist, call hunting, simultaneous ring and mobility applications. When you're easily reachable, you'll never have to wait around for an important call.
Future-proof your phone system.
With a hosted office phone system there’s no equipment for you to own or maintain. Instead, your provider sets up and maintains the system in the cloud. Quality VoIP providers, like Blackfoot, will provide a system that is hosted on a secure cloud and managed end-to-end. That means any software updates are automatically deployed on your system, bugs are quickly diagnosed and resolved, and your call quality is never compromised.
VoIP simplifies your business communications by not requiring your time, energy or cash to maintain. Plus, if you move to another office location, your system easily moves with you.
