More frequently than ever businesses are choosing to leave behind their traditional phone service and making the swap for a VoIP system instead. VoIP is a highly reliable and cheap Internet phone service, and with a good VoIP system in the office, businesses can see massive annual savings, big enough to result in some real, tangible changes in office finances. VoIP Review has therefore announced the top reasons why businesses should switch over to a VoIP provider in 2013:
1.) VoIP Service Saves Money
VoIP business plans are incredibly cheap, sometimes as low as $15/month for an extension. And plans are scalable so business owners can get the plan that best fits their business down to the smallest detail.
Some providers offer only unlimited extensions, each at a flat rate. With these providers, like Jive Communications, prices per extension go down with the more extensions you add. With other providers, like Vocalocity, customers can choose between different types of extensions, unlimited, metered, and virtual, each at different rates, so different employees can have different kinds of extensions as they need them.
And it’s cheap to install VoIP service. Oftentimes, VoIP providers don’t charge installation or setup fees at all, and if there is no hardwiring to remove, a business owner could come away with a very low bill.
2.) VoIP Eliminates Per Minute Fees
One of the advantages of a good Internet phoneservice is that most service providers offer unlimited plans, which feature unlimited minutes for all calls to US numbers, and frequently to numbers in Canada as well.
Most VoIP plans are unlimited, but many providers do offer metered plans for those customers who prefer them. These plans are very cheap with an extension available for around $10 or $15/month with per minute rates as low as $0.01.
With VoIP, all calls are virtually indistinct from local calls, so it is easy for VoIP providers to offer completely unlimited plans. As a result, many providers also offer free or unlimited calling options to international destinations. Many providers offer an hour of free international calling every month, or plans with unlimited calling to certain destinations. After these special features, per minute international rates cost as little as a penny.
3.) VoIP is the Phone Service of the Future
Everyday, more and more customers are converting to VoIP service, and more and more phone service providers are starting to pay attention. In the next few years, analysts expect VoIP use to continue to grow, with more and more residential and business customers beginning to realize the money saving advantages of a good VoIP service.
In fact, many telephone providers have already converted parts of their service infrastructure to VoIP. Eventually, it seems that most people will be doing most of their calling on VoIP systems.
The best VoIP providers also offer such futuristic services as on-screen video chatting, so customers can talk face to face from miles apart, and Find Me Follow Me features by which customers can program their business phone to forward all calls to their home or cell phone so they never miss important calls.
