Cutting Costs By Cutting the Cord
Just as consumers are dropping landlines for mobile phones and VoIP phone services to save money, so are independent professionals and small business owners. Fixed office phone lines are becoming a thing of the past and a costly expenditure.
With today’s mobile workstyle, more professionals are running their businesses from their cellphones, tablets and laptops. Add to that, the prevalence of WiFi access in our workspaces–at home, in offices, and on the go– and many professionals are finding that they can save money by transferring their existing office number free to a cloud-based VoIP phone service for a fraction of the cost. Plus, they get more features, such as texting, visual voicemail, and group calling, for less money, compared to traditional office phones. These savvy business owners are reaping savings anywhere from $10-$50/month per line or $120-$600 yearly.
Small businesses looking for added capabilities, such as multiple lines, advanced call handling, and virtual receptionists, are finding VoIP phone systems to be a more affordable option compared to small business solutions from wireless carriers and cable companies, which cost anywhere from $20-$50/month.
A professional business phone system does not have to cost as much as a new cell phone plan or a small business solutions plan with your cable Internet provider. Line2 provides a business-ready VoIP phone service starting at $14.95/month with no contract, no additional hardware to buy (e.g. desk phone or hardware in your network closet) and no IT staff required.
