How VoIP Can Lower Your Phone Bills

August 30, 2018
Category: VoIP

Organizations are always looking for ways to lower their overhead costs, and while it may not seem like an obvious part of the budget to cut, outdated phone systems could be costing your business more money than you think. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones are the best available option if you’re looking to both lower your phone bills and upgrade to more modern systems.

How VoIP Can Lower Your Phone Bills

Let’s take a quick look at the various benefits of upgrading to VoIP phones.

Switch to VoIP to Save Money

With non-VoIP phone systems, your organization likely pays an exorbitant amount of money to make long-distance calls. One or two a month may not chew up your communications budget, but if you have clients across the country—or across the world—your budget likely feels the pain of these phone calls.

However, with VoIP, US and Canadian based long-distance calls are included in the cost of your overall service, greatly reducing your company’s monthly phone bill. This way, it doesn’t matter whether your team makes a local or long-distance call—the bill will always be the same.

Non-Cost Reasons to Save

Beyond cost savings, VoIP also offers many other attractive benefits, including the ability to combine your phone system with the Internet. In other words, you’ll be taking the basic phone system out of your physical system and putting it into the cloud, where it’s much easier to manage.

Other valuable benefits include:

  • Endless phone system features
  • Eliminates on-site IT issues
  • Future-proof and flexible phone systems
  • Dissolve phone closet costs
  • Work from any location
  • Call mirroring
  • Multimodal access to your networks
  • Operational phone systems when traditional phone lines go down

Keep This in Mind with Hosted VoIP

While Hosted VoIP boasts a host of benefits that can save your organization money, there is one important factor to keep in mind when implementing your VoIP system: your Internet connection and reliability.

Because VoIP is managed over the Internet, if your connection or service lags or goes down, so will your phone system. In this case, we recommend contacting your Internet Service Provider to ensure that you’re receiving the high-quality service you’re paying for; otherwise, you’ll face a new wave of frustrations thanks to an unreliable Internet connection.
