Voice over IP, or VoIP, has revolutionized the way phone systems work. With VoIP, you have access to flexibility and features — and for much less cost — than traditional phone systems can provide. Let's take a look at some of the benefits and features of "VoIP for business" systems.
The first thing you'll probably notice about using phone voip is that your phone bill will decrease substantially. With traditional systems, called "packet-switched telephone network" or PSTN lines, time is literally money in that you pay for every minute you spend on the phone. That means if you have to make international calls especially, you're paying an awful lot to call long distances.
Easily add multiple users "all at once"
With traditional phone systems, only two people can speak at a time. However, VoIP for business changes that. With VoIP business systems, you can have conference calls with a whole team of people communicating in real-time.
This is possible because VoIP uses data compression during transmission, meaning that the carrier (the Internet) can handle a lot more data than traditional phone lines can.
Equipment is much less expensive
Instead of installing lots of complicated equipment with the traditional phones, the Internet connection (VoIP) simply needs an online connection and necessary equipment (phone equipment, and/or headphones with sound card and software).
Flexible network layout
With VoIP business phone systems, you have almost endless flexibility when you set up your network, and you can change it as you need to. With traditional systems, you have to determine a setup, put it in place, and then leave it. Changing it or expanding it can cost you a significant amount of time and money.
