What Are the Benefits of an IP Phone?
IP phones, also known as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phones, use the internet to make and receive calls. They’re much more efficient than traditional phone lines, and offer multiple benefits over the older technology. If your business hasn’t yet made the switch to IP phones, here are some of the advantages you could realize by doing so.
One of the biggest advantages of an IP phone system is cost savings.
Traditional phone systems require specialized equipment that’s expensive to install, and sometimes to maintain. They also have substantial calling fees, especially for international calls that traditional phone technology isn’t conducive to making.
IP phone systems lower costs in a couple of ways, both of which stem from sending calls over the internet. Installation and maintenance costs are lower, because your business undoubtedly already has an internet connection in place. The costs to make calls — including international calls — are much less, because the internet connects to virtually everywhere. (Some IP phones are even energy-efficient for further savings.)
Flexibility and Mobility
Another benefit of an IP phone system is flexibility and mobility. With an IP phone system, you can make and receive calls from anywhere with an internet connection. You don’t even need different numbers to do so.
Work from home, on the road, or even in another country, and you’ll be able to still call clients and colleagues. The international capabilities is a major advantage over cell phones, not to mention landlines that offer virtually no flexibility.
If you’re a business owner, you can’t afford to be fully incommunicado when away from the office or house. An IP phone system will ensure you can always take and receive important calls.
IP phone systems offer advanced features that traditional phone systems simply don’t. For example, many IP phone systems have video conferencing, which allows you to have face-to-face meetings with clients and colleagues. IP phone systems can also be equipped with voicemail-to-email transcription, advanced call routing, automated answering, and more.
Integration with Other Business Applications
Of course, your phone system needs to work with your business’s other communications and processes.
IP phone systems can be integrated with business applications, including CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software and email. When a customer calls, their information can automatically be pulled up on a screen, or the call can be transcribed into an email. The phones are compatible with select other systems too.
