All companies require a business phone system. In Monday’s edition, we took a look at what type of businesses would benefit the most from VoIP. Today, we will look at virtual phone system apps and landlines.
Virtual Phone System Apps
If your business is fully mobile and does not require a dedicated office space for desk phones, a virtual phone system app may be the perfect option for you. Like any other smartphone app, it can be activated by the simple push of a button, and you can add multiple employee extensions and receive calls from anywhere. Additionally, you can even retain your existing phone number, toll free number, or local number.
What type of business should use a virtual phone system app?
If you’re a solo entrepreneur or a small team with the need to make and receive phone calls on the go, an app may answer all of your phone needs. You can pay monthly while also presenting a professional appearance to your customers.
Next up is the old classic: landlines. Landlines are the most traditional choice and don’t require any type of Internet access. If your Internet access is unreliable, a landline might be the way to go. Furthermore, landlines might be the best option if you are in an area plagued by frequent power outages.
What type of business should use a landline phone system?
Small businesses without access to reliable high speed Internet service should either consider upgrading their Internet package or go for a landline system. This system is also best paired with office staff that work from one stationary location, without leaving the office.
