Still considering VoIP for your business, but not sure if it is right for you? For those still on the fence about making the switch to hosted VoIP, here are a few compelling reasons why you should take the virtual phone system plunge.
Keep remote field workers productive
With softphone apps, you can stay connected to the rest of your team, even when you don’t have access to your handset. Using your personal smartphone, laptop or tablet, you can continue to make and receive calls, as long as there is an Internet connection. Plus, you’ll still have access to all of the great features that come along with a complete business phone system. Traveling on a business trip or working from home will feel like just another day at the office.
Free up your office space
Since everything is done over the Internet, a virtual phone system doesn’t require any equipment on-site. You can get rid of the bulky equipment and free up that valuable office space for more productive purposes.
Disaster-proof your business
With a virtual phone system, there is no expensive PBX equipment in your office to go down or get damaged during a natural disaster. If there’s a storm in the forecast, your employees can continue working from their IP phones at home or wherever they have a broadband Internet connection. Your business stays 100% productive, no matter what the weather looks like outside.
Keeping in mind the potential productivity gains for yourself and your staff, as well as the cost-saving benefits, there shouldn’t be anything stopping you from diving in and investing in a virtual phone system.
