As a VoIP provider, we often get asked about VoIP and its advantages. A common question we get is ‘why would someone use a VoIP phone?’.
It’s a good question. A lot of businesses are concerned about moving to a cloud-based VoIP telephone system, but they need not be worried. VoIP is a great alternative to ISDN and traditional, on-premise telephone systems.
Why would someone use a VoIP phone?
There’s so many different reasons why you might want to make the move to a VoIP phone system. The main reason is cost reduction. If you choose to use a VoIP phone, you are eliminating call charges and costly telephone lines.
But cost saving isn’t the only benefit of a VoIP phone system. Businesses that choose to upgrade can also find a whole host of other benefits, including:
- Free deskphones
Our packages come with free deskphones, to help you reduce your hardware costs.
- Mobile apps
You can take your phone system on the go with our mobile app. It allows you to make and receive calls from your smartphone, as though you were sat at your desk.
- 5,000 included minutes
All of our VoIP phone licences come with 5,000 included minutes per month. This helps to reduce your call charges and save your business money.
- Free upgrades
Traditional on-premise telephone systems cost a lot of money to update and upgrade. But not VoIP. You’ll get free over-the-internet upgrades to your telephone system
- No maintenance
Maintenance of a phone system can be costly. But because a VoIP phone system is based in the cloud, there is no ongoing maintenance cost.
If you don’t want hardware, we can supply soft phones for your PC’s at no extra cost. This is ideal for the staff on the go, or those with no fixed desk location.
As you can see, there is a wide variety of reasons why someone would choose to use a VoIP phone. They’re a great alternative to traditional telephone systems, with many businesses already making the move to our cloud VoIP platform.
