Ever since the popularity of VoIP, a lot of businesses are realizing that their traditional landline business phones are outdated. Small businesses and home offices who use VoIP have increased fifty percent since 2011, for a total of 252 million subscribers. Upgrading to VoIP can help your company make more room in its budget. We’ve outlined a few of the benefits below.
Virtual Fax Machines: Fax machines have become less popular in recent years. Most of them are clunky and take up a lot of room in the office, not to mention all of the wasted paper. One of the biggest drawbacks of them are the repair and maintenance costs. With modern technology though, businesses can use virtual faxing, which will save hassle and expense.
Decrease in IT Budget/Maintenance: VoIP requires less hardware than a traditional business phone system (and no wiring!). Therefore, there is much less maintenance required. Less maintenance means that an IT staff won’t have to spend as much time on your system.
Lower Long Distance Charges: VoIP systems drastically lower international and domestic call charges. If your company makes frequent international calls, changing to VoIP would greatly help your bottom line.
