If you’re going to start migrating to an internet phone service, you need to be able to speak plainly and efficiently about the hardware involved. The cables at the back of your computer all have names, but two of them are the most important to know for anyone who is using a VoIP phone and a computer: RJ-11 and RJ-45.
If you are considering switching to VoIP technology, then it’s wise to understand just what this type of service can do for your company. Here we outline several advantages of incorporating VoIP technology into your business operations.
1. VoIP is Adaptable to Fit Your Business Needs
It can be difficult to properly predict exactly how many phone lines you may need at your place of business over the course of a year or more, and when relying on a conventional telephone system, it’s important to estimate correctly so you don’t overspend, or under purchase equipment. With VoIP, this is not an issue. You can easily add or remove a line whenever you need to, ensuring that you always have the proper amount of line’s available for your business’ requirements.
2. VoIP Offers a Variety of Features
If you enjoy the features of a traditional phone system, you won’t be missing out on any of them when switching to VoIP. All features you relied on with a traditional system are also available through hosted VoIP systems, such as: call transfer, conference calling, call holding, auto-phone menus, and more! By choosing VoIP, you can hold onto all your favorite features, while gaining a few more that will further benefit your business.
3. VoIP Is Easy to Install and Maintain
No matter what your technical knowledge, one big benefit of VoIP Phones is that they are very easy to install. You won’t need to rely on a professional technician to install wiring throughout your building; in fact, with VoIP, you can easily get your service up and running with little to no technical expertise. This type of software also enables you to quickly and easily add new users and offers a convenient web portal where the system’s configuration can easily be modified. The only thing you will need to configure VoIP is IP phones.
4. Send Faxes through VoIP
Another great feature of VoIP technology is that it supports virtual faxing or “IP faxing”. There’s no need for a fax machine; just simply send and receive faxes using the email account associated with a hosted VoIP system.
5. Employees’ Numbers Are Accessible Anywhere
If your business has employees who travel a lot, or are not “on sight” at all times, hosted VoIP systems are extremely advantageous. With a hosted VoIP system, users can access a portal, which allows them to reconfigure the system to meet their needs. Since the system features cloud-hosted telephony, calls can be redirected to essentially anywhere in the world!
6. You’ll Save Money with VoIP
With traditional systems, setup is intrusive and complicated, and any needed repairs can become quite costly depending on the configuration. With VoIP, setup is minimal, which lowers installation costs considerably. And, each VoIP call itself costs less than calls made through conventional telephone systems; this can really add up in savings if your business makes a lot of international calls.
