VoIP or voice over internet protocol is a standard that has been in existence for at least 20 years, where it first appeared in Isreal in 1995. As of 2016, at least 79% of businesses in the U.S. utilize some form of VoIP as their primary means of telephonic communications. This is significantly higher than less than 1% of VoIP calls made from the U.S. in 1998.
VoIP simply involves the ability of users to make and receive phone calls over their IP. This has been successfully performed by many companies in this space for some time and who are widely known to commercial and retail consumers looking for an easier way to connect without the fees and surcharges common to many landline providers.
If you are a business owner, it may be the time consider how the use of VoIP in your business may help you save both time and money. The investment you choose to make in VoIP for your business may, in the long run, prove to be the best time and money saver you can make. Here are some tips to consider for saving time and money switching to VoIP.
No Need for Additional Lines
VoIP, as the name suggests, shares the same lines that you use for your internet connections. This means that you save on the installation costs associated with having your office wired for a specific internal line, instead of harnessing the power of your wireless connection.
Staying on the Go
An advantage VoIP has over other forms of telephony is that there is no need to stay connected via hard wire, VoIP only requires a stable internet connection. Removing the tether to an internet line gives you the freedom to roam to anywhere you wish, while having the peace of mind in knowing that wherever there is a signal, there exists a way to stay connected on the go.
