Do You Need VoIP?
VoIP is very affordable. However, if your business is looking to pinch pennies when it comes to communication, then here are the essential questions you need to ask before making your investment.
How expensive is your phone bill?
Internet has become much cheaper than maintaining a land line. Because of the competitive pricing, phone companies have attempted to bundle other products with an existing landline. Instead of paying for just one item, you could be paying for phone, television, and more.
VoIP conducts phone calls, video, television, and any other media through an internet connection. No additional products are needed for you to reap the benefits of efficient, high-quality phone calls for your business.
Do you migrate between devices?
If you are locked to your desk for most of the day, then you may not need to use the full power of VoIP. A landline could be a suitable alternative to using VoIP.
However, if you find yourself migrating between your desk phone, mobile, video calls, text messaging, instant messaging, and other communication tools, then VoIP can help. It’s a versatile solution that can work as a silo for all of your communications.
If you want to cut down on clutter, a landline will do. If you need all of your tools at your disposal, then VoIP is your solution.
Do you have the right kind of internet?
According to an article from Time Magazine in 2015, more than 2.5 million people still used dial-up internet. Not all networks are created equal, and some are completely unable to take on the burden of a VoIP network.
While VoIP can be beneficial for business efficiency, you have to make sure your network can handle it. TC Tech Systems can outfit your business with the right network easily but, if you’d rather not, then we can also make sure your landline gives you the best service possible.
What do you need from your phone network?
One of the biggest things driving commerce in the 21st century is its expanding reach into every medium of communication. VoIP has allowed businesses to reach people in ways never before imaginable. Online calling has allowed people to shoot off a project confirmation between breaths at a meeting.
However, not all businesses want or need that kind of immediacy. If you run a brick and mortar location which takes a couple of phone calls a day, then VoIP may be overkill. But if you want to optimize your sales, then VoIP could be the tool that takes your business over the next hurdle.
How big is your company?
VoIP can handle hundreds of employees at a time on a single PBX system. Thousands of calls can cycle through the internet from a business, which means that the more you can keep those costs down, the more cost-effective your conversions will be.
Smaller businesses could use smaller VoIP systems to keep costs down. While it may not be needed, VoIP could greatly benefit any business by reducing costs across the board.
