Whilst Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) is becoming increasingly popular amongst small and large businesses alike, we are still often asked by companies what the benefits of this technology are. If you are looking to improve your communication systems at work, here are some of the ways VOIP can help you.
One of the advantages of VOIP is that it is extremely easy to install and does not require a minimum number of lines, or cause disruption if new people need to be added to the system. This means that it can grow as your company does, or can be scaled back during quieter periods of the year.
VOIP systems can offer a great return on investment as the cost of the calls is low due to the calls being made through an internet connection. This means a greater amount of communication is possible – both internally between employees as well as externally, to different countries – particularly useful for companies with offices throughout the world.
As VOIP works via the internet rather than a physical landline, employees can use the system anywhere as long as they have access to an internet connection and a suitable mobile device to log on to. This allows for a great degree of flexibility – for example working at home, or being able to make calls whilst on a business trip. The office number will still show on outgoing calls to clients too, maintaining professionalism and looking as if it is coming from a landline.
