VoIP means Voice Over Internet Protocol. Back in the late 1990’s companies like Magic Jack were some of the pioneers in the VoIP industry when they began advertising their services as one way to move from expensive landlines. In those days, the sound quality of VoIP calls was poor, and it wasn’t always reliable, but things have really changed since then.
With advances in technology and software, VoIP is virtually indistinguishable from a landline, and the features it offers for business are so effective in cost savings and benefits that many companies are now switching all their phone services to VoIP.
At Unified Technology Solutions, we install and maintain VoIP systems for companies from small to large. They love the flexibility of their VoIP systems and the elimination of costly phone bills is also a great benefit for those who are working on expanding their businesses. Money which is not spent on expensive phone systems can be put to good use elsewhere in the company.
Besides saving on expensive phone bills and long distance calling plans, VoIP allows employees and customers to attend virtual meetings anywhere in the world. All you need is access to the internet, a computer or tablet, and even if you don’t have direct internet access, your smart phone can serve as your connection.
Unified Technology Solutions has a VoIP system our company personally recommends. The system we offer is Kerio Operator Voice over IP system. It includes call forwarding, find/follow me, paging and auto-attendant among its features.
The Kerio system offers you the convenience of taking your office phone with you no matter where you are. Customers call the office, and even if you’re out, no one knows. You answer as if you are still sitting at your desk. It’s as simple as that. When you have the need for more phones, there is none of the muss and fuss of adding a traditional landline.
Depending upon your needs Unified Technology Solutions can take some time to discuss your company’s goals and show you how our systems can meet the needs of your company.
So, we explained what VoIP is and how its different from a land line, but why should you care? Because the land line business is not as profitable as it once was. Sooner or later its probably going the way of the old fashioned switchboard. It’s better to be prepared when that time comes.
