Voice Over Internet Protocol, more commonly known as VoIP is a combination of hardware and software which allows you to make voice calls using nothing but a broadband internet connection rather than a traditional phone line.
Why Use VoIP?
We understand most companies heavily rely on computers to carry out the majority of work. However, the phone also plays a vital role in office life. There’s no denying, moving office is a tedious task. You have to consider many things such as making sure your system is backed up should the unthinkable happen and you also need to make sure everything you need is packed up and ready to go.
Once you’ve moved office, you then have the stress of unpacking and waiting for the broadband. On top of that you then need to wait for a phone line to be installed so you can start conversing with clients. What if we told you we could take the stress away? Well, we can.
VoIP can be installed at the same time as your broadband line, which means you’re not waiting for days on end for your phones to be connected.
VoIP can also save your company vast amounts of money. Due to it being dependent on a broadband line, you will incur no phone costs. Another benefit of VoIP is being able to make international calls as well as conference calls. Depending on your broadband width you can make calls with people up to triple figures.
VoIP can also increase productivity as it allows employees to attach documents and share data whilst video conferencing.
Despite VoIP sounding like a bunch of technical jargon, installation and how it works is actually fairly simple. Above were just a few benefits of introducing voice over internet protocol into your office.
