Nothing changes the fortunes of a business faster than having clear lines of communication, especially after operating with less-than-effective communications for a time. Today, there are options that provide businesses with enterprise-level communications without the massive price tag and commitments that they typically bring.
Business is moving faster and from many more places, and with that, antiquated communications strategies just don’t provide the sustainable features and benefits that hosted VoIP can provide. Hosted VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a dynamic communications platform that is accessed through an app and uses your company's existing bandwidth. This means that all that bandwidth you pay for is repurposed to support your phone system. Let’s talk a little bit more about Hosted VoIP:
You know how you get all the productivity applications, email, and a bunch of other software from the cloud? Well, Hosted VoIP is also purchased as a cloud service. You don’t have to make any large hardware purchases, maintain and manage a PBX server, or any of that. You simply call Virtual Business Solutions to get a VoIP provider and it doesn’t take long to get your whole business the crystal-clear calling and dynamic features that today’s VoIP platform offers.
What's great about it is that each user can be added in seconds and once connected, they will be able to use their personal smartphones as a business phone. It allows companies that have teams working remotely to have a feature-rich and reliable communications platform in a cost-effective way. In fact, you are sure to save up to 40% off of your current phone system.
Benefits of Hosted VoIP
We’ve already outlined the cost reduction that’s possible with VoIP, but there are some other benefits as well. They include:
- Easier to Manage: Switching to VoIP eliminates your relationship with the phone company. More than that though, VoIP doesn’t need special hardware, it can use the same wiring and switches as your LAN.
- Unified Communications: Installing a VoIP platform likely means that you are able to unify your organization’s communications platform, giving your staff the option to communicate multiple ways at the click of a button.
- Functionality: A VoIP platform can integrate with all types of business-management software to provide easy access to the communication capabilities that often make a business run better. VoIP also has innovative features like Voicemail-to-email transcription, interactive voice recognition, and integrated chat.
- Scalability: When you onboard new users and need to add a line to your business, it’s as simple as a couple of clicks.
