The Business Phone Systems of today are no longer ones which use landlines. Today, savvy business owners are switching to VoIp. In the days when VoIp first came on the scene it was a novelty. The sound quality was terrible and the line quality was even worse. But that was a long, long time ago. Now, VoIp is virtually indistinguishable from land line quality, and in some areas I would venture to say that it’s better than land line quality.

American culture has for years embraced the notion that the more hours you work, the more effective you are. There are studies out now which dispute that fact. According to Lou Babuaata of Zen Habits, prioritizing your Most important tasks. Then get those done first thing in the morning and move on with all of the other work that pops into your life during the day. This is the best way to be productive. Any number of hours we work in a week that surpasses 55 hours is mostly a waste of our time. The longer we work, the less productive we become. We can now say that’s a fact.

Unified Technology Solutions installs and maintains VoIP phone systems for companies from Indian River County to surrounding counties. VoIP gives companies the flexibility to have multiple lines without the hassle of installing physical phone lines. We have long been proponents of this type of phone system vs the standard land lines from that big company who shall not be named.

What are some reasons why VoIp have become a popular alternative to old fashioned PBX and Landlines?

“Why Choose VoIP Phone Service for Your Business?

Many VoIP services have the same quality and reliability you expect from your phone company, but they cost less and offer more features. VoIP services often have better international rates and can be used on cordless phones, computers, smartphones or tablets so you can reach clients and coworkers. Plus, you don’t have to worry about dropped calls. VoIP services give you a lot of flexibility: You can direct your voicemails to your email, use a mobile app that lets you use your smartphone like your office phone, plus you can forward calls from your office to any device, including a desktop or laptop computer…..”

“VoIP vs. PBX Systems

PBX, private branch exchange, systems are traditional business phone systems. These analog exchanges consist of physical equipment hosted in your office that connects your internal lines to external phone lines. PBX is a reliable phone system for your office, but the costs are much greater than a VoIP phone service’s costs. VoIP services use software and are typically hosted in the cloud, so there is usually no hardware to purchase, install or maintain.

While VoIP systems are typically just as reliable as PBX systems, they rely on your internet connection. That means if you ever have a power outage that leaves you without internet, your phone lines will also be down. However, you can still access your VoIP account from a mobile device, if it has a data plan.

Which VoIP Phone System is Best for You?

When choosing the best VoIP service for your business, consider your budget, the size and type of your company, and what your calling needs are. Maybe add-on features will be the determining factor in your decision. For example, some VoIP services provide video conferencing in addition to phone capabilities, which is useful if you have multiple offices or remote employees.”  From Business.com   BY CHAD BROOKS

Should you have a case where your company is growing by leaps and bounds, but you don’t have office space for all the new hires, then a VoIp system will be invaluable. You can set the system up so that employees working remotely will appear to be sitting right there in your office building. In the case where you have plenty of room, but the nature of your work keeps certain people out in the field most of the time, then the ability to interface with tablets and smart phones is one your company will need.

Still not sure you want to cut the cord? Give us a call and we can have a chat about the right option for your business.

Windows and Laptops

on January 4, 2018 No comments

 

Desktops and laptops are getting more compact and lighter each year. Although they may not appear at first glance to look significantly different  than before, internals and the software have adapted to catch up with smart phones.  Computing power is increasing, battery power is getting better  operating systems are being slimmed down and built to better integrate into the tablet and smart phone world. We have all known for years the pros and cons of AMA Vs  Intel Chips, many of us preferring Intel. But there is whole other type of processing chip, known as ARM. Up until now, because of software and processing issues, it wasn’t a great option for laptops and such. But it seems that has changed, and it makes for some exciting changes coming down the pike.

Information Technology and the End User

on November 29, 2017 No comments

 

IT was long the realm of the Information management department and it’s people. With the advances in Mobile technology and portability, that monopoly has begun to fray around the edges. Today, more of the IT decisions are being driven by the people who actually use the software and the devices in their work for the company. In our line of work, all too often  we see the frustration when the software used for different applications within companies are data processing friendly and highly end-user UNfriendly. The good news is software and hardware companies are getting the point and the end-user is no longer in the mystery realm, they know how to use their smart phones and tablets. If they don’t like the software they’re being forced to use, they will go find something which works for them and simply work around management to get their work done.
