Why Move to VoIP?

Why Move to VoIP?

Yes, today’s blog is about office phone systems. You have one. They are dull, necessary, and no one wants to deal with them. They need to be re-configured for new employees, they’re confusing, and the telco lines probably cost you more money than you’d like.

Like everything else, office phone systems began transitioning to fully online/digital well over a decade ago. The proper term is " Voice over Internet Protocol” or "VoIP." In a practical sense, it means that your phone lines are no longer coming in over traditional, "plain old telephone” lines, or other standard protocols from the 1960s to the 2000s. Instead, voice signals are now being carried to your phone from the telco via the internet, such as your broadband connection.

Why switch to VoIP?

There are a few simple benefits.
  • - It saves money!  You cut the higher landline charges, especially for international calls

  • - Your employees are no longer tied to the phone at their desk. VoIP allows integration with mobile devices. Take your phone and your phone number with you. 
  • - You don’t need 2 separate cabling systems anymore. One for telco, one for internet is no longer necessary.
  • - They rely less on hardware to do the job, so reconfiguring for a new employee or a major office shift is much, much easier. It is now a software change, not a hardware issue.
  • - Old fashioned systems are becoming obsolete, and parts aren’t available
"We are finding that many businesses are moving to a fixed pricing model to save money”, says Scott Schulze, owner of Fusion Technology Solutions. "This model seems to be an effective solution in lowering business costs and creating predictability when budgeting expenses.”
This is just a quick summary, but it gives you a starting point for understanding why most firms are moving to VoIP systems and abandoning the old traditional PBX and key systems of an earlier era.
