5 Reasons We’re Thankful for VoIP this Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is all about spending time with your friends and family, and remembering the things that you’re thankful for. Well, over here at FreedomVoice, we are very appreciative of our loved ones, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention something else we’re thankful for: VoIP. Here are the top 5 reasons why we’re thankful for VoIP this Thanksgiving:
1. The Lower Costs of VoIP Calls/Systems
One of the very best parts about VoIP is that you don’t need a lot of hardware and/or software to be able to use it. CloudNumber and CloudPhone from FreedomVoice are activated instantly, with one software download for calls on the go. CloudPBX requires no big-ticket hardware and your phones are professionally installed, configured and supported by a certified local partner.
Additionally, since you are utilizing the internet to make your phone calls, you can avoid long distance charges. This is especially useful for small businesses who would like to contact suppliers, customers and even remote employees without worrying about racking up a huge telephone bill.
2. The Scalability of VoIP
As an entrepreneur or small business owner, it's not always easy to calculate business growth over the next year. If you have a traditional phone system, you have to be extra careful when predicting your needs in order to avoid spending money on phone lines you won't use. With VoIP, you can add a line as soon as you add a new employee, and when an employee leaves, you can easily reassign or remove the line. VoIP’s simple scalability lets you always have the right number of phone lines for your needs.
3. The ease and maintainability of VoIP
VoIP is super easy to install, even for people with limited technical know-how. With plug-and-play technology you can easily be up and running without waiting for an installation technician. Larger PBX systems are professionally installed, configured, and supported by a certified local partner, so you have nothing to worry about. A helping hand is always just a call away!
4. The Flexibility/Mobility of VoIP
With VoIP technology you can do things like place outbound calls through Outlook or other email clients, or bring up a customer record with that customer's inbound calls - you can even get voice mail transcription! Virtual faxing is another feature of VoIP phone systems. This allows you to quickly and easily send and receive faxes via your computer or cell phone using your VoIP technology. Such flexibility and mobility leads us to the last feature we’re thankful for.
5. The increased productivity that VoIP provides
This is probably our favorite benefit of VoIP. VoIP allows employees to make long distance calls at a fraction of the price, fax, take calls on the road, and so much more. This allows your small business to increase productivity, and even better increase business/sales!
Thanks for reading about our very favorite aspects of VoIP, and what we are thankful for this Thanksgiving. From the FreedomVoice family to yours, we wish you the very best turkey day, full of delicious food, fun, friends, and family.
