Communication is pivotal to the success of your business, but it’s hard when you have a telephone system that seems like it was built for previous decades. A modern telephone system that utilizes the cloud is the ideal way to approach collaboration in the workplace. You have some options for this, but the easiest to take advantage of is a cloud-hosted Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solution.
Compared to the traditional telephone system, a VoIP phone solution provides substantially more freedom to go about your business as you see fit, as well as the flexibility to adjust needs immediately and the functionality you expect from an enterprise-level modern phone system.
If all you’ve ever known are corded desk phones with a limited reach, then you don’t know the heightened experience of putting on a wireless headset and taking your business on the road. Traditional telephone systems are limited in scope because you’re tied to your desk or within a certain radius of your handset. VoIP phone systems can be used on any connected device, be it a desktop, a laptop or a mobile device. Since it’s a cloud-based application, your business can make use of it wherever and however it pleases.
When you implement a traditional telephone system, chances are you have a specific setup in mind that caters to your current needs. Now imagine that your organization is growing at a staggering rate and you don’t have enough phones for everyone. A cloud-based VoIP system allows you to add new numbers and users when they’re needed. As long as your network can sustain the bandwidth, you can add as many users as you need.
A traditional telephone system is subject to the constraints of phone providers. This isn’t inherently bad, but the fact that so many of them bundle together unnecessary services makes for a frustrating and expensive system. For example, your business certainly doesn’t need 300 channels of cable television in addition to its phone system. Instead of bundling unnecessary services together, a VoIP solution offers you the opportunity to customize the solution to fit your specific needs. This includes additional options like instant messaging and video chat, in addition to all of the basics like conference calling and voicemail. Basically, you only pay for what you actually want and need, not what the provider thinks you want and need.
