How Much Can Switching to VoIP Phones Save your Business?
As any business owner knows, communication plays a major role in day-to-day functions and is the frontline for establishing relationships, driving sales, and ensuring that nothing is lost in translation. Granted, we all understand the importance of communication in the workplace, but when was the last time you evaluated your communication resources? More often than not, we see our customers paying simply too much for their outdated phone systems. What if I told you that your business could save 30-50% a month with one simple switch? Yes, really. Switching from your traditional landlines to VoIP (Voice over IP) phones can really save your business a ton of money. In this post, we are going to discuss six benefits of VoIP phones and how they will save you money.
What are the Benefits of VoIP Phones?
- Low cost per call.
Each call is very inexpensive due to the fact that you’re using your broadband connection to place the call, and packets are sent digitally with crystal clear sound.
- No matter where you go, your VoIP phones will go with you.
Unlike traditional landlines, you are able to move your VoIP phones if your business outgrows its current space.
- User-friendly features.
With the use of VoIP phones, productivity will be at an all-time high. Voicemails are easily transcribed and sent directly to your email, conference calls are a breeze (at no extra cost), and video conferencing capabilities will effectively increase communication.
- No missed calls.
VoIP phones make it easy to decide where your calls ring to, how many times they ring before being transferred to a different line, and you are even able to eFax documents. This means you will no longer miss urgent phone calls.
- Constant Reliability.
Say your internet goes out like internet sometimes does – You’d assume your phones would stop working, right? Not exactly… With Voice over IP phones, you’re able to set the forwarding capabilities to transfer the call to a mobile device.
- No additional costs for long-distance calls.
Since all calls are internet-based, there are zero extra charges for long-distance telephone calls! This alone can save your business tons of money.
So now that you’ve seen the benefits of switching your business to a VoIP phone system, you may be curious how you’re able to save 30-50% a month. Never fear, I will explain. The average cost of a traditional landline phone system for your business is approximately $800-$1000 per user – Not including setup fees, emergency outages, long-distance calls, or even the cost accrued if your business moves. Landline phones seem expensive when you list everything out that way, right? Well, that’s because they truly are outdated and their functionality is now limited in comparison. On average, switching to a VoIP phone system for your business will only cost one user $30-40 per month. In addition to the upfront savings that VoIP will offer, you will also experience savings due to increased productivity and the elimination of possibly dropping calls that would otherwise earn you business. In this day and age, landline phones just don’t make any amount of sense.
