VoIP in a Business Environment!
Few people understand the technology inside Voice-over-IP (VoIP). Even fewer has identified the advantages it may have over traditional technology in a business environment. Do you?
VoIP is essentially two-way audio communication through computer networks (yes, that is what "IP" means!). We have all used Skype, or other PC-to-PC audio-call and messaging services. ► That how can this concept change our everyday office work?
VoIP gives you the freedom of IP. In the same way that you can connect to your office resources from anywhere, as long as you have Internet access, you can also access and use your office extension as if you were at the office. VoIP extensions can be used either through a VoIP phone that connects to the any computer network, or through a software in your PC, just like using Skype. This way, you work and communicate from the home, remote office, or even from the road.
Possibilities are endless; you can use your smartphone as your office extension, you can have endless extensions ready to be used within seconds, or you can switch offices and buildings, without worrying if your extension will be ringing and you will not be there to pick it up! VoIP provides you with the freedom and flexibility required by today's businesses, while also reducing your telecoms charges and improving communication among your colleagues and customers.
The same flexibility stands for having external calling lines. You can get VoIP phone lines from online VoIP providers, and be ready to use them within minutes. Again, charges are lowered and flexibility, like instantly having tens of outbound concurrent calls, is much higher!
Additionally, modern VoIP equipment, provides a wealth of features, including conferencing and user mobility, as well as integration with plain analog landlines.
