How does VoIP video conferencing work?
VoIP video conferencing uses our softphone app. A softphone is a software-based telephone that you can access using our mobile app, or desktop app. These softphone apps connect to your businesses VoIP telephone system, and enable you to join and create multi-party VoIP video conferences.
Using your built in camera, you can join in on business meetings from anywhere in the world. Whether you’re working from home, on the road, or even checking in from an international visit, your employees are always connected.
Each VoIP video call runs over our VoIP telephony platform. Our platform connects you and your colleagues with simplicity and ease. Once connected, our smart VoIP platform manages all of your connections, ensuring a seamless video conference with minimal lag or buffering.
What devices can you use for video conferencing?
Accessibility is key, especially if employees are working from home or remotely. Our VoIP softphone app allows you to access video conferencing on any device, including iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets, Windows laptops and desktops and Macbooks and iMacs.
All your employees need to do is download our VoIP softphone app on their device and login with their credentials. This allows them to join and create video conferences with ease.
Is VoIP video conferencing secure?
Our VoIP platform is built on BT’s secure Broadsoft infrastructure. This means that it is both secure and reliable.
We know how important communications are to any business—and that’s why we provide a robust solution to all of our clients. The strong infrastructure, coupled with our in-house support means that your VoIP system is always maintained and updated with the latest improvements and security measures.
How can my business benefit from VoIP video conferencing?
More and more businesses are choosing to host their meetings using video conferencing, with staff working from home or out on the road.
The obvious advantage is the cost saving measures. With employees working from home, you don’t need to provide them with office space. This helps save your business rates.
Video conferencing also provides your business with a great platform to connect users from different locations or departments. If you’ve got multiple offices across the UK, then you could look to rollout VoIP across your entire company, unifying them with one, robust and united telephone system.
What about normal telephone conferencing?
Of course, you may wish to use normal teleconferencing, that is, without video. This is also possible. With multi-party conferencing, you can host and join meetings with our video using the same aforementioned softphone app and collaboration suite.
Along with multi-party conferencing, video conferencing and teleconferencing, you can also create instant message group chats. Inside these groups, you can share files and messages to other parties, helping your team work smarter and more efficiently.
What is a VoIP phone system?
VoIP stands for Voice Over IP, and is a modern method for making and receiving voice calls. Instead of using multiple telephone lines for your business calls, you can use your existing broadband connection. This helps you reduce (if not eliminate) your call charges.
VoIP telephone systems are cloud-based solutions that control all of your businesses incoming and outgoing calls. They provide features such as hunt groups, auto-attendants, call recording and more.
VoIP phone systems are fast replacing their traditional on-premise PBX counterpart and helping business move to the cloud—allowing them to work smarter and more efficiently than ever.
