Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) November 16, 2005
Something exciting is happening in the small business arena and we thought you should know about it.
Twelve percent of businesses are already using the Internet for phone calls. Seventy percent will be doing that within four years according Craig Spiegelberg, president of Vancouver, WA based LogiTel, a VoIP equipment for small business manufacturer.
The big numbers in this mass migration to VoIP are in the small to mid sized business category and here’s why: cost savings and finally, the quality and functionality required for a business are ready.
Until 2005 there were only two choices for a business:
A business could adapt a cheap consumer VoIP- service for their office but there are problems with call quality and PBX integration; or
A business could spend a couple of hundred thousand dollars for equipment and hire an IT staff just to monitor, manage, maintain their VoIP network.
Now and For 2006 small and medium businesses have choices that make good business sense and it’s more than just cheap phone calls.
One sound choice is a proprietary (patent pending) LogiTel device that can either upgrade or completely replace a business’ PBX, greatly reducing local phone and long distance costs, merging cell phones with the office phone system, and allowing a remote worker anywhere to function as if she were directly connected to the office phone system receiving and transferring calls. Cell phone integration with VoIP is a unique feature available only from LogiTel.
“It’s not just cheap phone calls anymore; the cost savings is driving adoption but the functionalities and efficiencies in integrating your network is a strong competitive benefit for the smaller business” says Spiegelberg.
Several hundred thousand businesses will switch to VoIP over the next 18 months and it will change the way they communicate. Whether you are calling a cab from the office, checking in with a supplier in Hong Kong, or putting together a conference call on the fly, VoIP is going to empower these companies to communicate more efficiently than ever before.
Some businesses are proactively making the switch while others are just getting started in response to competitive pressures. Either way Spiegelberg predicts 2006 will be the year small to mid-size businesses embrace VoIP and all it offers.
