As discussed before, Voice over Internet Protocol is great for small businesses. Is it also a good fit for large companies? Fortunately, businesses of all sizes will find VoIP a good fit if they make the switch. Here are the top reasons large companies should switch to VoIP.
These days VoIP providers are starting to offer Unified Communications services. UC offers a suite of features that make communication and collaboration among employees easier. For example, UC offers secure video and chat messaging. UC also offers integration, softphones, etc. Having all of these features bundled into one platform saves you from the headache of switching back and forth between different types of software.
Traditional Business Phone Systems come with basic features. VoIP comes with all of these (such as call forwarding, call monitoring, etc.) at low prices. However, you can also get advanced features not found on traditional systems. For example, call statistics, call recording, and call queuing are all VoIP features that can add to your business’s professionalism.
VoIP offers businesses of all sizes tremendous savings. For example, your call costs, monthly service fees, and maintenance fees all drop upon making the switch. However, you should note that all of your savings are scalable. This is because the system permeates your company down to each and every employee that uses the phone. This means that any per-user costs scale along with your staff.
VoIP Business Phone Systems are often backwards compatible with your existing hardware. For example, if you have an on-site IP PBX you can use your provider’s SIP Trunking service to route calls through the internet. If your desk phones are analog, you can use VoIP adaptors to convert them. This is great for large companies who are interested in VoIP but have too much physical hardware to make a switch practical.
