Are you considering switching your existing traditional phone service to VOIP for your business? If so, it will help to know the following situations where it will be a smart choice.
You Use A Couple of Phones In Your Office
One of the things that makes VOIP unique is that each phone in your building is essentially its own phone line. There are no more issues with the phone line being busy because someone else is using it, or customers getting a busy signal because all lines are tied up. That said, you are paying for each phone line in your office as a result.
VOIP works great when you have a couple of phones in your office with each needing its own dedicated line. It may not be best if you have one phone line coming into the building, but multiple extensions where calls can be received. In the latter situation, you could benefit from having a cordless phone that allows you to answer calls wherever you want.
You Have Multiple Offices
Do you have multiple office locations and want the phone to ring at both locations at the same time? This is something that is possible with VOIP. Calls can be routed however you want, since it is all done through the Internet. No more worries about customers reaching you at the right number, since you can be reached anywhere at one number.
You Work Out Of The Office
If your job takes you out of the office frequently, then you may be in a situation where you want to unify where customers can reach you on the phone. VOIP allows you to take calls on your mobile phone using an app so that you don't have to use your personal cell phone number to make calls on the go. This can be nice to keep the appearance that calls are coming from a single number and that you can be reached anywhere throughout the day.
You Want To Save Money
Businesses are making the switch to VOIP because it is a way that they can save money every single month. It is worth doing the math and figuring out how much a VOIP system will cost you. Not only will you see the benefits that the service can provide, but it can lead to some significant cost savings that will make it worth making the switch to this new phone system.
