Benefits of moving to a VoIP system

Did you know that converting to a voice over IP phone system could save your organisation 30-60% on your phone and service expenses?

Not only can VoIP systems take care of the majority of your business’s communication needs, but can help your team securely work from anywhere – and for almost all businesses who don’t currently have that ability, it could be life changing for your business.

We love VoIP here at Signal and rely on it heavily. Here are some of key benefits of moving to a VoIP telephone system.

What is VoIP?

VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a telephone system hosted in the cloud where it uses the Internet for telephone calls instead of the traditional PSTN phone lines.

1. Low Cost-Per-Call

Since VoIP routes phone calls over the Internet and your existing data network, local calls between employees – regardless of their location – are free. International calls to other countries cost a fraction of the rates charged by phone operators, thus lowering your monthly bill.

Also as most telephone numbers provided are geographic, the charge to your customers for calling you will be a lower local or national rate.

2. Versatility of Features

VoIP provides businesses with the advanced features of a traditional phone system. Features like group pick up, call forwarding, diverts, call hunt, group voicemail and routing etc are generally included in most VoIP plans and they can greatly improve employee productivity.

3. Smooth & Quick Transition

For companies upgrading to VoIP, the transition can take as little as a few hours or a day! You don’t even have to wait for a technician to come install the phones as many suppliers offer automatic provisioning, making these phones truly plug-and-play.

4. Pay Only For What You Use

With traditional phone systems, you had to specify the number of lines or numbers you would need in advance and quite often businesses overestimate their needs and end up paying for resources they don’t use.

VoIP lines and numbers can be provisioned immediately, and extra unnecessary resources can also be disbanded, ensuring that you only pay for actual calls and services used.

5. Easily Adaptable To Your Needs

With hosted VoIP, all the hassle of changing your phone system to your needs is a thing of the past. All enterprise class VoIP features are delivered online and can be enabled/disabled through a dashboard. Need to add new users, remove users, change diverts? It can all be done through your VoIP system dashboard.
