Nonprofits are all about saving the world. With VoIP, they can save some money, too.
(PRWEB) June 02, 2013
Nonprofits are out there helping the masses, feeding the poor, helping veterans get on their feet, and many other good deeds. You name the cause, and there’s a nonprofit helping out. Which is why they deserve a little help themselves in terms of saving money.
VoIP is the cheapest phone service on the market. VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) allows users to make and receive phone calls using the Internet. VoIP users can make or receive these phone calls using their computer, smartphone, an IP phone, or a softphone.
Internet calling is perfect for nonprofits because VoIP plans are cheap to buy and come with an abundant amount of useful features. Nonprofits are all about saving the world. With VoIP, they can save some money, too. Therefore, VoIP Review is revealing the top 5 ways that nonprofits can benefit from using VoIP.
1. Free Long-Distance Calling
Nearly all business VoIP providers offer free unlimited nationwide calling. Calling over the Internet instead of landlines circumvents pricy telephone wires and telephone poles, which is why VoIP calls don’t rake up long distance fees or interstate fees. Nonprofits need the freedom to call partners, donors, and clients without the fear of extra fees and charges on the monthly bill. The more money saved on the bill, the more money the nonprofit can spend on the people they’re trying to help.
2. Unlimited International Calling
One of the best things about business VoIP is its cheap international calling capabilities. Internet calling is far cheaper and easier to send overseas versus traditional calling. This is perfect for nonprofits that have international offices. With hosted VoIP extensions, nonprofits can keep a main office phone number that connects to both international and local extensions. Even if the VoIP provider does not offer unlimited international calling, Internet calling is always cheap enough for providers to offer cheap international rates at a few pennies a minute.
3. Free Features to Suit Nonprofit Needs
Nearly all business VoIP providers offer users important free features like the auto attendant feature. The auto attendant connects callers to the right extensions automatically, thereby saving the nonprofit from paying an additional worker like a secretary to connect the calls. VoIP providers offer a lot of other features to fit nonprofit needs, like 3-way calling, call forwarding, and voicemail. Many business VoIP providers also offer mobile VoIP apps that workers can download to their laptops, tablets, and smartphones. No matter where nonprofit workers go, they can take cheap VoIP with them.
4. IP Faxing
Sometimes nonprofit workers are out in the field and away from a fax machine when they need it. That’s why IP faxing is such a handy tool. IP faxing allows users to send and receive faxes through the Internet. This is a quick and easy way to get important information, like medical records or safety procedures, out to workers in the field.
5. Green Technology for Better Savings
VoIP uses a lot of “green” technology, which aids the environment and keeps costs low. For instance, IP faxing cuts down on paper and ink. VoIP calls reduce the need for copper telephone wires and other expensive traditional phone equipment, which cuts down on eventual waste in landfills. Furthermore, Internet calling is excellent for remote workers. From mobile VoIP to IP faxing, VoIP helps nonprofits stay connected to their remote workers while reducing air pollution and utility costs.
There are nonprofits out there full of people who care enough to help others. VoIP helps these nonprofits so they can spend less time worrying about their bills, and can spend more time focusing on helping the masses.
