For years, analog telephones and PBX systems have been a staple in the workplace. But it’s the 21st century, and the days of traditional phones are ending. Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) is taking over modern business communication.
So, What Is VoIP?
We don’t want to bore you with too much jargon, but put simply, VoIP is a means of talking to each other using digital signals as opposed to traditional analog signals. The technology can work almost anywhere there is an internet connection.
Equipping your office with VoIP technology like the Switchvox can lead to huge cost savings in the long run. Plus, most networks have the spare bandwidth to carry the extra load with minimal complications – even as your system scales to support your growth.
Become Mobile With the Cloud
By implementing a cloud or hybrid system, VoIP can open the door to nearly unlimited worldwide communication through the internet. However, the technology isn’t just for globetrotters; it can also make a standard 9 to 5 workday more convenient and fluid. With the press of a button, your phones can forward calls to your cell. That means you can go home or out to lunch without worrying about missing an important call.
Imagine having the ability to speak to your employees or clients while working from nearly anywhere in the world with perfect clarity. There’s no need to worry about overages or exorbitant international rates either.
The Bigger Picture: Unified Communications
VoIP is a core component of a unified communications solution, as it allows businesses to integrate a wide variety of collaboration applications across multiple platforms. Brands like Skype specialize in VoIP solutions and integrate easily with other Microsoft applications like Office 365.
