As your business grows, it’s inevitable that your expenses will increase. Hopefully you’re making enough money to cover rising expenses, but you don’t want to spend that hard-earned money unnecessarily. Fortunately, you can save money on one of your big-ticket items without sacrificing quality and service. The solution is to trade your traditional telephone service for cutting-edge voice-over-internet technology (VoIP).
With a traditional phone system, every company expansion, whether it’s hiring new employees or opening a new location, means spending money on installation, equipment and contracts. When you choose VoIP, however, you can save lots of money and take advantage of features that you can’t get with traditional service.
Consider these VoIP features and the positive effect they can have on your business:
- No need for expensive equipment. VoIP technology delivers telephone service through your internet connection, eliminating the need for expensive installation costs and pricey telephones. You can use your existing phones, or purchase any model you prefer, without being bound by what your phone company offers. Just plug the phones into your network and you’ll be instantly connected.
- Choose your phone numbers and location. Internet-base VoIP lets you choose a phone number from any location. If you open a location in a different city, you can keep the same area code and phone number as your original site, without changing business cards and stationery. Calls to all of your locations can ring at a central office, so you’ll only need one receptionist to direct calls throughout your company.
- No need for multiple numbers. VoIP service can let one number ring phones in all of your locations, so you won’t need a separate number at every site. All of your employees can answer calls from any site, which makes it easier to transfer calls to other users. You can streamline your system by avoiding the need for a variety of different numbers within the same company.
- Don’t lose service during power failures. Unlike traditional phone service, VoIP isn’t afraid of power outages. Because it is delivered through the internet, the service will work as long as your network is up and running. If there is a service interruption, calls will go to voicemail, and your customers will never know there’s a problem. Voicemails are easy to retrieve because they’re saved in the cloud, there whenever you want to access them.
It’s clear that VoIP is a great choice for a growing business. Reduce expenses by eliminating installation and equipment, maintenance and contracts. Choose your area code and phone number to keep a local presence and avoid having to get a new number if you move or expand. Voicemails stored in the cloud let your customers stay connected even when the power goes out. It’s hard to find a reason not to choose VoIP. Make the switch today; it’s a decision you won’t regret.
