VoIP is a leading technology that allows you to make your voice calls using a computer with just about any broadband Internet connection instead of a traditional phone line. Using your Internet connection for both voice and data, not only means you are cutting down on your costs, but you are also helping the environment.
While there are many benefits to using a VoIP solution — the primary benefit being the reduction in both communication and infrastructure costs, as VoIP allows users to avoid having to pay for both a broadband connection and a traditional telephone line – there is one benefit you might not be aware of, and that is VoIP’s ability to allow companies to “Go Green,” a popular trend in business.
All businesses must adopt more sustainable and eco-friendly business practices. Although the move to go green may seem complicated, any business can make the move if they just consider a few simple solutions, and VoIP is one of them.
To use a hosted VoIP service you only need a broadband connection and an IP Phone or personal computer. IP phones plug into your broadband connection and work like a traditional phone. For those companies that are concerned their consumption of resources, VoIP is an excellent solution for reducing the number of people needed on-site and, in cutting down on the amount of electricity, gas and water used at the office.
VoIP Phones are Portable
Users can work remotely, making and receive phone calls wherever there is a broadband connection by signing into their VoIP account. This makes traveling less expensive, as you have less to take with you on a trip. It’s also important to note that when using a VoIP solution, users can make calls from any distance, and the connectivity and costs will be no more expensive than calling from the office.
No More PBX Hardware in Landfills
Traditional analog phone systems required you to purchase and maintain hardware at your place of business. With a VoIP hosted PBX, the only equipment you need are your VoIP phones. This means less hardware and software ends up in our landfills.
