It was only a matter of time before we completely eliminated the need for a landline. It shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, we’re continually looking for new ways to make communication easier and more convenient. Unfortunately, that means that the landline has become obsolete. If you want to have one for nostalgic reasons, great, but when it comes to running a business you no longer need to have a landline.
How we got rid of the landline
We’ve slowly been chipping away at the landline for almost a century. First, we eliminated the middleman (Hello, Operator!) Then we changed from the rotary dial to the keypad to help us call people even faster. Realizing that people liked to pace about while talking on the phone, we made it lighter and smaller. Then, instead of picking up the entire phone we made the cord longer to allow us to be more mobile. When everyone spent the better part of their day unraveling the cord, or themselves from the cord someone invented cordless phones. Then cell phones and then VoIP phone system.
Business communication happens online
The way that we communicate with customers, investors, partners, and employees are changing all the time. It wasn’t that long ago that we insisted that a message on Facebook was not a professional way to conduct business. Today, it’s how everyone conducts business. Online phone and messaging services are becoming the go-to method of business communication. An office phone system is a waste of your money. Since you already have the internet to run the majority of your business, why not leverage the power of the internet with a VoIP phone system?

With a Voice Over IP (VoIP) you can have all the features of a traditional office landline phone system without the extra expenses.
