Ok, so we all know the basic concept of VoIP, most of us are now aware of the fact that by 2025 you will need to have a VoIP phone system in place due to the switch off!

VoIP has been around since the 1990s and it’s a system that hasn’t stopped growing and developing since – the technology is now at a stage where its’ capabilities are stronger than ever and more and more business are using this could based phone system as their primary way of communicating on a daily basis.

Let’s have a quick recap!

VoIP phone systems work by converting your voice into digital signals which are transmitted over the internet. This means that rather than calls using an often expensive, physical link between two locations, the data can be routed anywhere, resulting in cheaper international calling. This type of system is something most of us are probably familiar with, if you’ve ever used Skype you’ll have used a type of VoIP service, and we’ve all once upon a time had to rely on Skype for personal or work reasons.

There are so many advantages!

The main and probably most important reason is, VoIP will save you money, not only on things line setup costs but also ongoing line rentals will be significantly cheaper! Traditionally our current phone systems rely on an ISDN connection, which can be relatively expensive to rent and more often than not limit the number of lines that you are able to use. VoIP doesn’t have any restrictions in that regard and you will be able to make as many calls from as many users as you need, be it via a leased line or your broadband services. If that’s not enough to convince you, just think about the fact that most businesses are switching over to VoIP, regardless of their size, which means that the majority of calls you are making will be totally free as generally, VoIP to VoIP calls are free of charge. It’s also extremely hassle-free and accessible from any smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop, which means that if you ever need to make any changes, set up a divert you can do so without the need of having a degree in rocket science!

So why should you switch over now?

It’s simple really, no matter where we go, internet speeds are getting faster, technology is improving which means that VoIP is too. This type of phone system will not only save you a ton of money, but it will also enable you to work quicker, more hassle-free which in turn will allow you to generate new revenue streams. It’s a plug and play system that works around your business needs, it doesn’t matter if you find yourself continuously on-the-go, as long as you’ve got a 4G or soon to be 5G connection you will be able to utilise this could based phone system without any problems.
