Small business owners know they don’t have the same resources as huge corporations. They can’t afford to have offices all over the world, they don’t have colossal staffs of people at their disposal, they can’t throw money at problems until those problems solve themselves, and they certainly can’t afford the latest technology when it comes to their communication systems.
Or can they?
A Small Business Phone System That Really Works
While it might not seem like a big deal a small business phone system can be one of the most necessary tools in the drawer for business owners. Calls need to be strong and clear, and the system needs to be reliable. While many small business owners are looking to save as much money as possible on their phone bills it’s possible to get a robust phone system that also offers caller ID, call forwarding, voice mail, and dozens of other features that would normally cost an arm and a leg at no extra charge.
How is this possible? By investing in a VOIP phone system.
What is VOIP?
VOIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol, and it essentially refers to using the Internet to make and receive phone calls. VOIP has been around at least since the mid-1990s when people first tried using the Internet to make long-distance phone calls. The problem was at the time VOIP was not terribly efficient. Worse than its inefficiency though early VOIP technology was expensive, time consuming, and all around difficult for any layman to use with confidence.
In short it worked much like anything else involving the Internet in the year 1995.
Thanks to the advances made in technology over the past several years though it’s not only possible to make Internet calls clean and clear, but they can be made much more cheaply than traditional phone calls as well. Not only that but the other features that cost more money with a traditional phone line (the aforementioned caller ID, call forwarding, messaging, etc.) take significantly less work with a VOIP system. That’s why they tend to be offered for free.
VOIP phone systems cover all of the capabilities a business needs, and they tend to come significantly cheaper than traditional phone service. They come with cords and in cellular models as well, ensuring that a business can always answer the call when a customer needs to get hold of them. As long as the Internet is up and running and a business can connect then it will get the message.
Small businesses can’t afford to leave their customers hanging, and with a VOIP phone system they won’t. Not only that but even a small, local shop can boast the same technology bigger companies use all while paying a fraction of the cost. That is the power of technology, and it can be used to build your business bigger and better than it already was.
