VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, cloud-based phone systems provide the ability to manage your business from any office. Business phones, video conferencing, chat, file sharing, and email are the tools of the trade for business communications. With VoIP, they are all available on one integrated, secure, reliable, and easy-to-use platform that goes wherever your employees go.
So, how do they work? VoIP phone system setup can be as easy as a phone call to your managed service provider. During installation, your company can keep their current phone numbers and maintain an open line of communication with support from the managed service provider for any questions that arise. Below, we discuss some of the key features of a VoIP phone system and why it may be better for your business than a hardwired landline.
One of the top reasons for choosing a VoIP phone system is the cost savings. Businesses can save up to 36% per line with VoIP vs traditional phone systems. By providing a predictable monthly bill, VoIP saves business owners the stress of not knowing what they will owe each month.
The all-in-one solution includes video conferencing, chat, and file sharing. It is as easy as clicking a button to switch from the office to remote working, using user-friendly mobile and desktop applications. Undoubtedly, VoIP’s flexibility is one of the other main reasons businesses choose it.
In 2022, most business phone systems include basic inbound and outbound calls, forwarding, and conferencing services. So, what sets VoIP systems apart? Nowadays, on-the-go or remote capabilities are high on the wish list of many workers. Many corporations have shifted towards fully remote operations or employees may need this option in an emergency. VoIP phone systems can support a number of popular calling and SMS features, including, but not limited to:
Intermedia Unite is one of the top VoIP systems and allows for remote communication internally and externally through their desktop and mobile apps. Do you have one phone for both work and personal calls? Eliminate the confusion when a call comes in with a clear indication that the call is coming from Intermedia. The app also integrates with your company directory and prevents the hassle of having to look at the phone list every time you need to call someone.
Are you tired of paying for five different video conferencing tools (hello Zoom, GoToMeeting, Teams, etc…)? Consider integrating video conference with your phone system. In addition to increasing productivity, creating a one-stop-shop for your team decreases the need for retraining. A few primary features of most integrated VoIP video conferencing tools include:
To get the best VoIP service, you need a provider whose network is consistently secure. Similar to any phone system, VoIP can be subject to security threats. Malware, viruses, eavesdropping, and identity theft are some of these potential threats. Even though these threats are significant, they are rare and can be dealt with quickly if you have a team of information technology experts on your side.
The key to the best VoIP phone system for your business is in choosing a reliable and trustworthy service provider. Even the top phone system will not work for your business unless there is clear communication from the start of the implementation process. The current market is filled with products that businesses pay too little attention to because nobody took the time to teach them about the features that are uniquely suited to their business models.
