What Is VOIP & How It Benefits Businesses Of Any Size

What Is VOIP & How It Benefits Businesses Of Any Size

VOIP is becoming increasingly more popular than traditional phone line systems, as calls can be taken and transferred from anywhere. This is because VOIP runs over the internet instead of copper lines so this makes it cost efficient and secure.

A softphone app can be installed onto your mobile device and computer to make it easier to transfer calls.  An example of this is;  The call is ringing on a computer, one member of the team answers but the person is wanting to speak to the person they spoke to last time, the call is transferred to that persons computer but it is an important call and that person is leaving to go to a meeting so the call is then transferred to his mobile so he can talk on the go even when not at his desk.

Is VOIP Beneficial To Small Businesses?

The short answer is YES. VOIP is beneficial to businesses of any size, large companies and small companies.

With the right credentials the calls can be answered from any location, benefiting small businesses which may not always be in the office.  VOIP is also perfect for small businesses as it can grow with the business.

VOIP works out cheaper than a traditional landline phone, especially if the business makes a lot of international calls.  VOIP is extremely cost effective.
