Voice Over Internet Protocol, better known as VoIP, allows users to make calls through the broadband Internet rather than through conventional phone lines. VoIP converts sound into digital voice communication and then transfers it through the Internet. VoIP has proven to be very beneficial for businesses. The following are some of the main reasons:
Making calls using a VoIP provider is a lot cheaper than making conventional calls, even more so if we are talking about long distance calls. VoIP does not only reduce costs, but it also increases productivity and improves time management.
VoIP is more flexible
When using VoIP, you can still use your conventional phone and fit it with a VoIP telephone adapter, or a VoIP converter. The VoIP is just like a kind of USB memory stick; this means that you can take it anywhere with you. When using VoIP, you need to be close to a computer, making sure it is turned on. The VoIP converter senses the signals of other phones, and they will be converted into digital data that are then routed over to the internet. If you wish you can get your VoIP system; all you need is high-speed internet, and you can use your VoIP to make and receive calls anywhere.
VoIP is multifunctional
VoIP is more than a sophisticated phone system; you can use it for video conferences. You can stay in contact with your clients, for business calls, and with your co-workers, discuss important work matters, conduct meetings, etc. This means that you are free to travel and can still take part in these important meetings.
VoIP is reliable
One of the most common worries with VoIP is losing internet connection, meaning of course that you cannot make any calls. No problem: thanks to call-forwarding, one of VoIP’s features, you have unlimited flexibility. You can choose when and how your calls are forwarded, therefore avoiding losing productivity just because you find yourself in an area with a poor internet connection. Your office may not be able to take the call, but your laptop or mobile phone can.
