Reducing Business Costs with VoIP
As with all business owners, keeping your expenses under control is a critical factor to achieving and maintaining profitability. Certain expenses such as water, electric and telephones are a necessity that businesses cannot operate without. However, your choices have been limited as most of these companies have a monopoly in their respective areas.
Voice over IP (VoIP) is a technology that provides telephone connectivity over the Internet instead of using traditional phone lines. It’s likely that you have used VoIP services already with or without your knowledge. Most of the Fortune 500 companies switched to VoIP services years ago, drastically reducing their telecom costs. When you call your bank, package delivery company or major retail stores, you are likely connecting to their VoIP systems.
VoIP services are scalable so they can meet the needs of a small business all the way up to a multinational corporation. When your business grows, you can simply add more virtual lines and pay for the minutes used instead of phone lines that are only utilized for part of the day. In addition, competition with VoIP providers has grown drastically, creating attractive pricing models.
