The advantages of using a VoIP Phone System

The advantage of using a VoIP Telephone System - Telephone systems Ireland
Any new or growing business who places a priority on efficiency needs to ensure that they have a reliable phone system in place. Even though most tasks these days are carried out on a computer, day to day communications are still primarily done by telephone. Older, proprietary phone systems were quite expensive, and they were difficult to reconfigure or scale up or down as business dictated.

Voice over Internet Protocol telephone systems are the best choice in today’s Internet-driven society, and are answering many, if not all, of the primary communication needs companies require from telephone systems. Using a VoIP system has several benefits for many businesses.

Why choose a VoIP telephone system?

1. Low Cost-Per-Call

Placing calls over traditional phone lines means that a line is taken up by the two callers using it to communicate. Since there are only so many lines that can be installed, calls placed over landlines, especially if they are long-distance, are expensive. But using the Internet to relay call data circumvents this problem, making domestic and long distance calls cheaper overall.

2. Easier to Install, Configure, and Maintain

software makes it easy and inexpensive to add new users, and a convenient web portal makes it easy to move, add, or change the system’s configuration. There is no VoIP hardware to install, you only need IP phones.

3. Scales up or down easily

With VoIP for your business, you can add a line as soon as you add a new employee, and when an employee leaves, you can easily reassign or remove the line. You always have the right number of phone lines for your needs.

4. Employees’ Numbers Follow Them Where They Go

Hosted VoIP phone systems let users access a convenient web portal to reconfigure the system at any time. Hosted VoIP phone systems are also terrific for businesses that have field workers or workers who travel a lot. Calls can be diverted to anywhere in the world due to cloud-hosted VoIP phone system features.

5. Hosted VoIP Saves Businesses Money

Saving money is one of the most important features of Hosted VoIP phone systems. Legacy systems were expensive. Setup was intrusive, reconfiguring required time and physical system changes, and maintenance and repairs could be quite expensive.

With a hosted system, you not only save on the costs of installation, calls themselves are significantly less expensive. If your business makes a lot of international calls, hosted VoIP phone systems offer the savings you need to have a great phone system without a huge capital investment.

6. VoIP Integrates with Other Business Systems

Because VoIP calls are internet-based, hosted VoIP systems are easier to integrate with the business applications you use every day. You can do things like place outbound calls through Outlook or other email clients, or bring up a customer record with that customer’s inbound calls.

7. Simple Conference Calls

Since all calls use a converged data network instead of dedicated phone lines, creating and participating in conference calls are made much easier.
