Choosing Office Phone Systems
Choosing an office phone system for your company’s premises can often seem an incredibly complicated process, especially as there are so many different systems out there on the market. One of the most popular office phone systems of the present day is VOIP. Voice over Internet Protocol allows users to transmit voice over the space of the Internet, and carry out phone calls, for just a fraction of the cost of traditional copper-wired phone lines. The ability of VOIP to save its users a great deal of money has made it incredibly popular with individuals and businesses all over the world.
VOIP Office Phone Systems
VOIP office phone systems are able to save the user such a great amount of money due to the fact that the calls made through the system bypass the PSTN (public switched telephone network) and so also bypass the costs associated with it. Users are simply charged a once-monthly fee to pay for their use of the system. This is especially useful for those people who regularly make calls abroad, as International calls made on a standard telephone line, transmitted through the PSTN, can usually be very expensive indeed. The amount of money that can potentially be saved by making the easy switch to VOIP office phone systems is incredible.
Of course, users have to pay an initial fee for the VOIP phone, and although VOIP phones are certainly not cheap, they are constantly coming down in price, making them widely available to the masses, both in a corporate and domestic sense. VOIP systems have actually been around for some time but it is only recently that they have become popularised. This is likely because, in the years after its conception, VOIP systems were rather inconsistent in their performance and were plagued with a number of problems. As well as being temperamental in their call quality, reception often being patchy, they was an air of unsurity and misunderstanding about this new communicative device in terms of its cost and how it should be installed. It is only in recent years, as the technology has advanced and grown, that call quality has improved and a greater understanding of the device has evolved. In fact, most users of VOIP now widely agree that its call quality is substantially better than its mobile phone and landline competitors.
VOIP Office Phone Systems: Which Provider?
There are so many providers out there offering VOIP office phone systems that it can often be very hard to decide which one to go with. There are two things that you need to consider – how much you can afford to spend, and which features you want from your new phone system. Generally speaking, the more features a system has, the more expensive a VOIP phone system is. Therefore you need to be sure that you are going to make use of the incorporated features, or else you risk wasting a lot of money. Features of VOIP phones include voicemail, call barring and three way calling capabilities.
