A great way to upgrade your Business Phone System is by switching to VoIP. If you take this step, one of the changes you’ll have to make is setting up your new VoIP phone numbers. A VoIP phone number is used as an extension that you assign to your users (i.e. your employees). Calls placed with these numbers go out via the internet rather than traditional landlines. In nearly all cases you can still use your existing business numbers as your new VoIP phone numbers. Here are the benefits of using VoIP numbers:
With VoIP, as long as you have internet, you can place a call. This provides you with more flexibility than relying on traditional wired phone systems. With VoIP, many people can easily have their own number or account within the system. Multiple people can even share the same VoIP phone number. Furthermore, the same phone number can be logged into multiple devices. Therefore, by choosing VoIP you provide yourself with greater flexibility than you would if you worked solely off of a wired phone system. With VoIP, remote workers can use their smartphones to make calls and still take advantage of their business phone number.
If you still have traditional wired lines, adding new numbers can prove challenging. For example, if you have a new employee you want to assign a number to, you have to undergo a costly installation to add a new line. With VoIP, adding a new number is easy. You simply have to add the number to the system and assign it to your new employee.
Odds are your company already relies on a strong, stable internet connection for much of your operations. This means that adding VoIP won’t be an issue. VoIP works best when conducted over a strong internet connection. By using a strong internet connection, your VoIP call quality will be fantastic.
