Communication is key – make sure your company has the right tools.
Whatever it is your business does, you need a reliable phone system. Anyone who has purchased a traditional phone system knows what a pain it is. From installation, upgrades, difficulty in operation and making changes, traditional business phone systems are expensive and difficult to maintain. Further, most of them are a Capital Expense.
Some start up businesses rely on mobile phones. This is a viable option for the smallest of businesses with few or no employees. But at some point, your business will outgrow mobile phones.
This is where Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology comes to the rescue. The capabilities of business phones include much more than just the ability to make and receive calls. Today’s internet-based phone systems combine messaging, mobility, and conferencing with a myriad of unified communication options to help your business stay connected and communicating properly.
Why is VoIP so popular among businesses?
Scalable to your needs
With traditional phone systems, adding or subtracting users or lines can be a complicated, lengthy process. VoIP allows you to have as many phones as you have employees and easliy scale up or down
Flexible for your workforce
VoIP phones are assigned to an employee, not a location. This means if your employees change offices or cubicles often, there’s no need to go through a lengthy process of changing phone numbers; they simply take their phones with them, plug in, and they are back in business.
Cost effective to match your budget
Traditional phone systems must be hosted in-house which means you are responsible for its maintenance and upgrades. VoIP systems are hosted in the cloud which reduces the amount of equipment you need to buy and store.

A business VoIP system is scalable not only to the number of phones you need but to your budget as well. By answering the below questions, we can determine the plan and the equipment that best suits your requirements.

These applications allow them to make calls on their business line directly from their mobile phones allowing them to conduct business using their business line from anywhere.
