VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a convenient way to make phone calls using the internet, rather than a traditional analog phone line. Thanks to packet-switching technology, which minimizes the amount of data sent during a phone call, virtual phone service can handle large volumes of calls and lends itself well to business communication.
Phone companies often charge businesses a great deal of money for landline service. For companies that do business on a national level, long-distance calling charges can add up quickly. Virtual PBX charges a flat rate for calls made anywhere within the continental U.S. and Canada, allowing you to stay in touch with business contacts without worrying about excess fees.
VoIP offers businesses great accessibility options. While it is possible to purchase specialized VoIP handsets for use with your virtual phone service, you can also use a traditional landline phone by simply plugging it into an analog telephone adaptor (ATA).
VoIP business phone systems enable users to enjoy a slew of features which would be costly or downright unavailable with landline phone service. These include automatic call recording, overflow queues that can be managed by designated phone operators, follow-me calling for locating highly mobile employees, and a professional caller ID that can be transmitted from any phone.
The data-compressed nature of VoIP allows multiple users to occupy the same line, making conference calling a natural feature. Conferencing privileges may be granted to any number of extensions at any given time, and multiple conference calls can even be held simultaneously with ease.
VoIP is available for professional use with your office’s existing phones at a rate that fits your company’s needs. Simply call Virtual PBX at (408) 414-7646 to learn how to set up your phone service online so that you can begin enjoying the many benefits of VoIP calling.
