Using VoIP For Your Business

Aug 17, 2007
How good is the idea of using VoIP for your business? Will VoIP benefit your business? Is VoIP really better than your existing traditional phone solution? You be amazed how many businesses have made the switch and many are seriously considering the switch to VoIP for their businesses. Businesses realize that there are great benefits first for their budget and it offers more services and it is more flexible, has much room to grow in the future at it is still fairly new technology.

There are two basic technologies through which you can adopt VOIP for your business use.

VoIP is carried over a wide area network also known as WAN. VoIP can be used to transmit voice through WAN, such as internet or carry voice over. There is a public WAN or a private WAN, which will provide greater security for your communications.

IP telephony is carried over a local area network, widely known as a LAN, which proves to be a very cost effective way to communicate within an organization. This technology allows voice transmissions between people within a company who are part of the integral network.

Why should you choose VoIP for your business?

The standard phone systems that used by most companies today right now have one problem when it comes to long distance or overseas calls: the costs of the calls are enormous and only growing. When using VoIP, the calls are considerably less expensive because there are no applicable taxes for internet calls. This benefit of VoIP is very important today because many companies grow, and the natural result of business growth is going global.

Companies without doubt will benefit from reduced overall costs as if IP- based voice technology can virtually eliminate toll calls at the same time it cuts the cost of making add-on, moves and changes to the system.

VoIP has enhanced functionality by offering all the options that we are used to. Huge room for changes in reducing call costs can be done because VoIP is a standard open protocol which allows companies to build their own audio applications or purchase applications that will come from software developers. As your company grows you will be able to expand you phone system with very limited costs. VoIP will adapt to your every need and requirement. Think of the possibilities!

Don't be afraid of bringing new technologies to your business. VoIP is easy to use, you can train your employees quickly to become accustomed to its features and usage. Look at VoIP from the same point of view as you look at new business possibilities.

The only downfall that you sometimes could experience, is that it is possible drop calls if your internet connection has a problem. This sometimes can be very inconvenient for the businesses. However, you can choose your Internet service provider wisely, I believe you should not be faced with such difficulties very often, because there are many Internet service providers, and some will provide you with the better Internet connection than others.

Summarize VoIP for your business benefits

VoIP offers the following features:

- The option to store incoming calls to voice mail if you do not want to be disturbed.
- The option to send a voice mail to your computer as an attachment if you want to pick-up your messages via computer.
- Caller ID and call waiting are also available and are typically free; not like a regular telephone provider where you are charged an additional fee.

- One low monthly fee that covers your phone calls.
- There are no hidden fees or taxes. There no taxes charged for internet based phone calls and that is one of the main reasons why this service is so inexpensive.

And don't foget about the flexibility and expandability of this technology.

Many businesses switching everyday to a better more flexible VoIP technology that improves and grows with their needs. So if you were asking yourself if VoIP for your business will benefit you, answer yourself without no doubt: Yes! Try it for yourself and see the difference.
