1. Why Are Businesses Switching to VoIP Systems?
More and more businesses are taking a leap and switching to a VoIP business system because these phone systems offer a wide array of benefits. VoIP systems are often cheaper, offer more features, and can be customized to meet a business’s unique needs. VoIP systems are also portable, so your employees do not have to be sitting at a desk to receive an incoming phone call or make an outgoing phone call. This is key, as more businesses than ever allow their employees to travel or work from home.
2. Do You Need to Be at a Computer to Make or Receive a VoIP Call?
You do not need to be at a computer or a desk to make or receive a VoIP call. VoIP stands for “Voice Over Internet Protocol.” In its most simplistic form, you or your employees simply need to be connected to the Internet in order to make or receive phone calls. Essentially, this allows your employees to make or receive phone calls when they are away from the office.
3. Can I Keep My Same Number if I Change to a VoIP System?
As a business owner, the last thing that you want to do is change your phone number, as your customers or clients already have your phone number. When you switch to a VoIP business system, chances are, you can keep your same phone number. You will not have to worry about notifying customers or clients about a phone number change, making the switch over to VoIP an easy one for your customers.
