Ten Creative Ways to Save Money in Your Business by Using VoIP
VoIP is a technology that is coming into its own. It is a big money saver for businesses in many ways. Because VoIP can route calls over SIP Trunks, the obvious savings is in the cost of your phone lines. This is not the only way VoIP can save money. VoIP uses your local area network and the Internet to connect the phone system to the phones. Because this is so ubiquitous, this means that phones can be placed anywhere, moved and even be used at home or in remote offices. This massive flexibility provides a multitude of options for businesses to save money based upon their own unique business operations.
Here is a quick list of the savings that we typically see in VoIP systems:
- Telephone line costs. A traditional phone line can be replaced with the SIP trunk. This saves from 20% to 50% on your monthly phone bill. The huge savings here reduce monthly expenses but add performance features like direct inward dialing.
Remote Workers. Different businesses have different needs. For a fast growing business that requires employees to work from home, or maybe just an occasional ability for key employees to work from home, VoIP allows remote phones to work from anywhere. An added bonus is that management can keep tabs on the remote workers by seeing their status on desktop management screens or by having busy lamp buttons programmed on their phone. In some cases, businesses have been known to reduce their real estate expenses dramatically by employing remote workers, resulting in huge overhead reductions.
