VoIP, or Voice Over Internet Protocol is the latest advancement in the world of telephonic communication and is rapidly becoming the phone system of choice among small and medium business enterprises. The reasons why VoIP is out-phasing traditional landline phones are multiple, the major one being reduction in costs. While most companies experience a reduction of at least 20% in their phone bills, for some, which involve a lot of long-distance calling, this reduction can be as high as 80%.

By choosing to opt for a hosted VoIP system, you can save yourself from the initial expense involved in switching to VoIP. This is because you do not need to invest in any equipment, apart from the basics like a computer with an Internet connection and speakers. This is also beneficial when you are actually using this system, since troubleshooting can be done by the hosted provider, using remote access. In addition to this, if you decide to downscale or upscale your phone system at any point, this can be easily done without any additional costs. Hosted VoIP systems also offer the benefit of automatic upgrades.

A major reason why most businesses are switching to VoIP is the flexibility and set of features that the system offers. VoIP has many attractive features for business owners, which include the ability to communicate with remote employees through office extensions. This makes it possible to achieve more effective monitoring of employees, while also making communication easier, resulting in an overall boost to efficiency. Moreover, by using VoIP, you can make and receive calls from your office number even when you are not physically present at your office. It is just as easy as sending and receiving e-mails.

Almost all VoIP phone systems designed for businesses come with a feature set, which includes functionalities like caller ID, call transfer, call conferencing, automated response, voice mail- email integration, etc. You can choose from  these features depending on the nature of your business, and can enjoy all the benefits of a professional telephone system, at a minimal cost.
