Taxes are turned in, spring cleaning has commenced, but one thing still remains to be done: upgrading to a cheaper office phone service.
Sometimes it’s overwhelming to change over to a new business phone service, but cheaper prices and more features are absolutely essential when looking to cut business costs while upping efficiency. That’s where VoIP comes in. VoIP is the modern phone technology that uses the Internet in place of traditional copper landlines. According to VoIP writer Rachel Greenberg, VoIP phone service is nearly 80% cheaper than traditional phone service and offers more business features.
There are a myriad of reasons for businesses to upgrade to VoIP service, and so My VoIP Provider is here to reveal the top 4 reasons to switch to business VoIP service in 2013.
1. Cheaper Monthly Phone Bill
The number one reason to change to VoIP phone service is the dramatic decrease in the monthly phone bill. Internet calls are much easier to send over long distances than traditional phone calls which is why most VoIP providers offer unlimited nationwide calling, which cuts out all of those usual long distance fees from the monthly phone bill. Internet calls also cost less than traditional calls since there are no maintenance fees of landline upkeep.
2. Scalable Extensions
VoIP technology allows for a better kind of PBX (private branch exchange), a hosted PBX. A hosted PBX is hosted off-site by the business VoIP provider, and makes all internal and external calls cheap Internet calls. Since the hosted PBX’s extensions are not routed with physical wires, they are easy to add, remove, or change as needed.
3. Remote Worker Capabilities
Business that utilize VoIP have efficient means to maintain remote workers. Companies can get a remote extension for each employee, or they can use IP video conferencing to keep remote employees in on all meetings. A company can also use IP faxing to send employees any documents they may need cheaply and quickly. Employees can even access their faxes right on their phones or computers as email attachments.
4. Cheap International Prices
VoIP technology allows for extremely low rates on international calls. Not only are international calls cheap, but many business VoIP providers also offer a service called global numbers. Global Numbers are phone numbers in any area code. This is perfect for businesses who want to maximize their presence in remote areas.
When it comes to making changes around the office, there is nothing easier than upgrading to cheap VoIP phone service that will help cut monthly costs all year long.
