Why VoIP Can Save Your Business Money

How much time do you think your employees spend on the phone when they’re at work? Your secretary has to spend time talking to people when they schedule meetings, and probably spend a fair amount of time on the phone when they have to order more supplies. Your sales team most likely spends the vast majority of their day on the phone, and may even have a different cell phone they use for business. IT workers need to troubleshoot problems with other people offsite. You probably spend a lot of time simply talking to other employees on the phone when they need help.

Your phone is a vital part of your business, so why do you spend so much money on an inferior carrier? Think about how many issues you’ve had in the past because of line maintenance. Think about the skyrocketing usage fees for your landline. This is why so many businesses have switched to VoIP for their communication needs, and couldn’t be happier about it. You’ve probably heard about VoIP in the past, but thought it sounded too pricey because it’s so high tech. The truth is that the right VoIP provider can save you a lot of money.

Save money on line installation

Your company is growing and you need to add a few more cubicles — or maybe even rent a brand new room or office to accommodate. If you use landlines, you’re going to have to spend a lot of time and money on getting new ones installed. VoIP services can hook directly into your existing broadband network, so there’s no need to make new lines.

Never go over on long distance costs

You may have a few big clients that work overseas, or you could have a few clients that work in a different country. Regardless of how often you have to use international calling, you know how ridiculously expensive it can be. International charges can add up after a while, but you’ll never have that problem with VoIP. Since everything is operated through the internet, you don’t have to worry about needless long distance charges. Every call costs the same.

Have a connected and ready workforce

How many problems have come up because an employee had to miss an important call or meeting? How many sales opportunities have been lost because someone couldn’t get a phone? A cloud based phone system ensures that your employees are available as long as they have an internet connection. No more missed calls or opportunities, everyone will be able to be contacted at a moment’s notice.
