Six Ways You Can Use Hosted VoIP to Your Advantage
We are really quite keen on Hosted VoIP and we think you should be too. Why? Well we’ve got six ways you can use it to your advantage, so you can see for yourself.
Lower your expenses
We understand that small businesses are constantly looking to reduce their monthly expenses. At the same time, they can’t just do away with services that they need, such as an office phone.
With hosted VoIP, businesses don’t have to choose between affordability and communications. It’s a much more cost-effective solution compared to traditional landline phones. For a lower price, businesses have access to a very similar service.
Choose a plan that fits your needs
The exciting thing about hosted VoIP is that it has many possibilities. You get to choose which features you’ll have.
One of the reasons why hosted VoIP is so affordable is that you only pay for what you need. If your business is more interested in better features than in cost-savings, then you can use the technology to its full potential.
Program your phone for telecommuting
One of those features that’s included on most IP phones is telecommuting. Employees can program their IP phones to direct their incoming calls to their smartphones. As a result, employees are more mobile, flexible, less reliant on their office phone, and therefore happier.
Incorporate VoIP in your disaster recovery plan
Communication is a vital part of any disaster recovery plan. The best part about VoIP is you can physically remove your IP phone and move it to any other location. All you need is Internet access. Then you can start communicating with clients, employees, and managers to restore the rest of your business operations.
Make simple changes to your settings and preferences
VoIP is simple enough that you don’t need an in-house support team there at all times. Employees will quickly learn to make simple changes in their settings and preferences. For example, they can change their settings so that they can receive their voicemail messages in an email.
Buy IP phones with relevant features
We talked about the possibility to load up on features earlier. If you’re going to do this, you’ll want to buy the best IP phones. There are tons of IP phones ranging from the most basic ones to ones with all the bells and whistles. If you don’t know much about them, talk to us and we’ll recommend one.
