VoIP vs Landline for Business
Voice over Internet Protocol has made its mark in the industry of communication. Many are wondering if that would be the best thing for their business, well I am here to say YES, YES YES. By implementing VoIP in your business will help to decrease cost that would normally incur through landline.
Most businesses are paying a lot of money for a typical landline with limited to no features and all that for same amount they can get VoIP with a lot of features and benefits. With this VoIP your business communication will be much clearer due to the high-quality audio. Some of the basic features offer by a VoIP: Voicemail, Call waiting, Call forwarding, Caller ID, Unlimited local calling.
Keep in mind that although this technology is great, your business should always have a landline account just in case it runs into internet issues; after all it is Voice being transfer over Internet Protocol. To implement VoIP a business would need a High-Speed internet connection.
You as a business owner will have to decide really what will work best for your business. It may come down to Cost vs. Benefit.
Monthly Costs are lower: Anyone that has used VoIP for business or personal use can testify that the monthly bills are lower. And also you will get more value for the money that you are spending because some of the packages include features with no additional fees.
Best Calling Feature: All VoIP Service providers provide massive calling features for one set price.
More Portability & Scalability: Portability is essential to a business because sometimes unforeseen circumstances call for change of location. For instance I work for a company where we need to move people’s phones all the time and each time we move the phones we don’t have to trace any cable and punch any cable on the patch panel or make any changes. Being able to take your phone just about anywhere that has high speed internet is a very important feature.
One of the great advantages that VoIP has over landline is installation. It requires a lot of resources and it’s very expensive when you have to install a landline service whereas if you choose to implement VoIP it will cost you less. The VoIP market is very competitive therefore will make it easy for you to find cheaper deal that will work for your business. For Landlines, you don’t have that many options therefore you must pay what they want you to pay.
