How the Old School phone system worked:
A VoIP Phone System is a voice line hosted over the internet protocol phone system. Let’s take you back to the age of the prehistoric phone business landline. A dedicated line just for phone transmissions ran from the local service provider to your physical location. These business landlines transmitted data for your phones at a startlingly slow rate. Most of the time, you probably didn’t notice how slow. Most of the time, you probably weren’t your frustrated, confused customer that kept getting a busy signal during high call volume episodes, too. The not so lovely part about these old business landlines is that they are prone to dysfunction and fixing them required technical support outside of your office that would often take hours or days to fix anything. There was also zero accountability because you really didn’t know or had no way of knowing just how many missed calls and lost business was falling off the phone grid.
Enter the age of the internet. The internet has provided modern businesses with so many neat tools. We now have the ability to market our brand on a global scale with little effort. Our ability to leverage technology has scaled business possibilities into the clouds! But what does this all mean in terms of a VoIP phone system?
What is a VoIP Phone System?
Using the internet as the medium for conducting business phone systems, we can now transmit data to a VoIP phone system so much faster than the old phone lines. We can also utilize your current internet connection without having to run new wires to your business. Granted, a VoIP phone system is best utilized with a high-speed connection, but most business internet providers now provide speeds that make this requirement super easy to meet or exceed that requirement.
A VoIP phone system works faster, has more reliability and includes tons of fun features. What used to take you 3 calls to the phone company, lots of headaches and extra cash is now included with a VoIP phone system. You can easily set the hours of operation, manage voicemails, extensions, business fax to email, music on hold and all the glorious features that have become the new standard for a business phone system in a matter of seconds. No more busy signals or lost calls!
What is a VoIP Phone System in the “cloud”?
When you start learning more about VoIP business phone service technology, odds are you’ll start hearing these crazy terms about fluffy white clouds. Don’t let this confuse you. The technical world is especially fond of acronyms and crazy double-meaning words just to make it all the more fantastic when you figure out what we are actually saying. In terms of the infamous “cloud” what the technical world is referring to is a digital atmosphere where your servers are no longer just physical assets located in your business. Cloud-based phone system servers are duplicated across multiple physical locations making their redundancy so reliable that they are “cloud-esque”.
By balancing data in repeat across multiple servers, this redundancy makes data loss next to impossible. Cloud-based phone system technology is also really cool because you can access the data from any internet connection. This makes having multiple physical locations for your business really easy for a VoIP phone system. You can also access the administrative side of your phone system from any web browser to make changes to call handling or access call records.
How does a VoIP phone system save me time and money?
Let’s get down to business. Most people could care less how all of this actually works, they just want to be sure they are making the right decision for their business. Business owners care about the bottom line; how is this saving me money and time? Easy. A VoIP phone system saves you money by using your existing internet connection. The only cost is the physical phone handset and a small monthly fee to access the administrative side of your phone system. Simple.
A VoIP phone system saves you time in many, many ways. Setup, for instance, goes from being a long, involved process to being plug and play. Unbox your pre-programmed phones, plug them in and start answering and making phone calls immediately. Save more time by using all the cool features. One of the most time-saving features is “find me, follow me”. Activate a mobile application on your smartphone and take business calls anywhere, anytime. No need to be waiting by your office phone all day. Carry on with your busy schedule and never miss a call. You can also record calls, set up call routing and much much more.
