The most important piece of any business is communication. Communication with customers, clients, coworkers, mentors and outside vendors. Without the ability to reliably and effectively talk and share information with each of these, you’re going to have a tough time keeping your business in the black.
This is not a new line of thinking. The importance of reliable communication and advances in technology have led to a new standard in communication systems. Voice-over IP is a disaster-proof way to set up your company’s phone system to ensure flawless communication in your business, promoting further maturation and growth. There is a large variety of benefits that culminate to the inevitable success and we’re here to educate you on them!
Numbers never change.
Your employees will able to have a single number if you so choose to go that route. Since the calls are all IP-based, you can answer calls on any number of devices. This is super handy when it comes to handing out phone numbers to clients or businesses because they only need to worry about a single number or extension. Your employees will be able to answer on their desk phone, cell phone, laptop or mobile device. They also can alternate between devices during a phone call allowing for much more availability and flexibility.
Visual features are supported.
If you or your employees would prefer to have a presentation via conference call or make a meeting a bit more personal, you can choose to have a video-call. Most VoIP-ready devices have cameras and displays to enhance the communication and make it a bit more personal.
Your IT team will love this. Rather than needing to worry about bringing in the phone company to set up new phones, remove old phones or change phone numbers, VoIP allows your IT team to control what phones get what phone numbers from the server. They can add, remove or change phone numbers at will. This makes growth and restructuring extremely simple tasks that can now be 100% handled in house.
VoIP allows for multi-system integration.
Perhaps the most underappreciated benefit, VoIP will allow for your employees to join together multiple systems they use each day to improve the quality and speed of their work. For instance, you can often tie your email or digital fax clients into your VoIP system. This can allow for voicemails to be transcribed automatically and delivered to your employees via fax, email or text message.
Assuming that you’ve migrated your VoIP services server to the cloud, in the event of a natural disaster or some sort of power outage, you’re not going to be disconnected. So long as your employees have cell phones that can get a signal from a satellite or tower, you’re still in good shape. There is never a need to worry about a failover service or what you’re going to do if the analog phones go out.
