 Flick switch set to VoIP as opposed to PSTN

Are you thinking of switching your business over to a VoIP phone system? If so, you have a lot to look forward to. Here are six important reasons to consider making that switch today:

1. You’re already working with an outdated phone system.
This is one of the most compelling reasons to think long and hard about switching over to a reputable VoIP business phone provider in the UK. If the system that you currently have makes use of outdated hardware, VoIP is going to offer you a better deal. Likewise, if your previous service contract has run out, there’s much to be gained by making the switch.

2. Your long-distance fees keep adding up.
Sometimes, as a business grows and evolves, the customers and clients that it spends most of its time reaching out to change as well. This could mean that your staff are spending more time on long-distance calls than previously. The VoIP phone systems from Birchills allow you to choose where your phone numbers are regionally located, meaning you can cut down on the need to make long-distance calls regardless of where you’re based.

3. Your in-house IT department is too small or non-existent.
If either of the above is the case, then there’s really no alternative than to outsource your phone service to a third party. This frees up the limited IT staff you do employ to focus on more pressing tasks without you having to worry about the phones constantly experiencing downtime.  

4. Say goodbye to your fax machine.
For many businesses today, the only reason they have a landline at all is so that they can keep their fax machine hooked up. This type of communication is certainly on the way out given the ubiquity of email, but some of your clients will still prefer to send certain documents this way. However, many of the best UK VoIP providers can also set you up with virtual fax capabilities, so that you can receive faxes as normal without having to handle them through an actual machine. They’ll be there in the digital archive when you need them.

5. Integrate your phone system with other enterprise software.
If you use Salesforce or any other enterprise software applications in your workplace, then you’re going to love your new VoIP phone system. As these represent the latest in digital technology, they can also be integrated into other software platforms for greater power and versatility. Feel free to call us with specific questions related to software compatibility.

6. Connect multiple branches or offices in different regions.
Things become complicated when your business has several different branches that need to have a linked-together telephone system. This is especially true when telecom providers operate at each location. But with VoIP telephony, you can link all of them together regardless of each branches geographic location.

These are just a few reasons to consider switching over to VoIP, and there are certainly many more. If you’d like to learn more about the specific advantages of VoIP, get in touch with us through the website or by calling us on 01922 21 33 33.
