IP telephony has many advantages and attracts more and more companies. The adoption of this technology was further accentuated by the Covid-19 pandemic, which forced many employees to work from home. We hope this article will help you convince your customers to give up their old phones and choose a modern phone system.
So why choose IP telephony?
Cost reduction: Cost reduction is the most attractive benefit.
- IP telephony systems are much less expensive than traditional systems for both local and long-distance calls.
- With IP telephony, no heavy installation is required if your customer already has internet access: no cable purchases or installation costs to consider.
- Reduction in capital expenditures incurred at the time of acquisition since IP telephony systems are paid monthly.
- Saving in management and maintenance costs.
Mobility: At a time when remote work is becoming more and more common, the mobility offered by IP telephony is a major advantage. Employees travelling or working from home are connected the same way as those working from the office. They can be always reached no matter where they are.
Flexibility: IP telephony makes it easy to install or remove lines as needed. This is more complicated and more expensive with traditional telephony where you must evaluate your needs in advance with the risk of ending up with unnecessary expenses.
Ease of deployment and management: IP telephony technology is easy to install and configure. In addition, you only need to access a convenient online portal when you want to add features or change the system configuration.
Gain in productivity: IP telephony features go beyond what traditional telephony offers. We can listen to our voice mail on our computer, organize an audioconference or even a video conference. Convenient features that make life easier for companies and increases their productivity.
