What to Expect When Switching to VoIP

Considering whether to switch from a traditional phone system to VoIP? Wondering if it’s worth it and what to expect when switching to VoIP? At SpectrumVoIP, we understand that change can be scary. That’s why we’ve created this article– so that you can find out what to expect when you switch to VoIP. Nobody likes surprises unless they’re good ones. Right?

The Benefits of Switching to VoIP:

#1 Cost Savings

And we’re not just talking about the monthly cost for service. That’s right– VoIP actually saves you money in ways you may not have considered. Your operating costs and capital expenditure will be significantly reduced because you’ll no longer take on the expensive burden of IT service and support, phone infrastructure, or industry regulations. 

#2 Added Features at Little to No Extra Cost

VoIP service is known for its many convenient features at little to no extra cost compared with traditional phone systems which have limited capability at a higher cost.

Wondering how this is possible? 

When you use cloud-based VoIP service, you’re taking advantage of an internet-based system, meaning that you don’t have to worry about long-distance charges or the cost of added features. Instead of paying to add video-conferencing, for example, and watching your phone bill skyrocket with each additional feature, VoIP includes video-conferencing (and much more) from the outset. 

Here are just some of the features that you can access once you switch:

  • Admin web portal
  • Apps for iPhone and Android
  • Desk phones
  • Auto attendants
  • Call waiting
  • Call forwarding
  • Call analytics
  • Multiple extensions
  • Audio recording
  • Conference calling
  • Voicemail to email
  • Integration with other software or web applications
  • Unlimited rollover lines

VoIP’s convenient and easy platform makes it easier to stay organized and efficient, all at a lower cost than a traditional phone system.

#4 Freedom to Do Business Anywhere

Since VoIP service is based in the cloud, you can take calls, check voicemail, or send and receive messages anywhere that there is an internet connection. Use virtually any device to access your streamlined business communications, and enjoy the freedom of being able to work just about anywhere.
