VoIP. If you’ve been looking into business phone system solutions for a while now, then we’re sure you’ve seen that acronym. But what exactly is VoIP, and how can it help your business?

At RyTel, we know there are a lot of options out there when it comes to business phone system solutions. We want to help you understand VoIP clearly so that you will know you are making the right choice when it comes to helping your business flourish.

Making VoIP Work for You

So, what exactly is VoIP? Well, it stands for ‘Voice over Internet Protocol’. It’s essentially technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband internet connection, instead of the old copper phone line. This is great, because it allows you to have access to a lot more features than a traditional phone line. Features like call recording and texting.

With VoIP, your business can work from anywhere because you can place calls from a desk phone, from your computer or laptops, and even from your cell phone! Plus, there’s no limit to the number of calls that it can handle!

When you place a call, your conversation is converted into small data packets. This makes it easier to transmit quickly online. Your phone is connected to the Local Area Network (LAN) with your router. After you dial the number these packets are delivered through the line to the receiving party. This is all thanks to Voice over the Internet Protocol. While this may seem intimidating, it’s actually a fairly simple technology that is user-friendly and can be very beneficial to your business.

How VoIP Benefits Your Business

For businesses aiming to reduce operational costs while increasing their control and capabilities, VoIP is an attractive solution! It significantly reduces equipment costs and set up time as it requires less installation upfront. You can eliminate all on-premise equipment by switching to VoIP. Not only that, moving your communications to the cloud reduces the overall costs. Cloud saves by eliminating on-premises servers, thus eliminating the costly need of equipment and manpower to maintain.

Along with the money it can save your business, it can also create more effective communication within your organization. Managers can easily communicate with their team and business operations can continue without physical proximity. VoIP also gives businesses greater flexibility. Many VoIP systems are easily updated through an online portal. This gives your business the flexibility to update addresses, add new phones, remove users, and more in an easy-to-use interface.
