Choosing a VoIP System for Your Business

February 24, 2017

By Andrew Bindelglass, Contributing Writer

In today’s business climate, the need for quick and easy worldwide communication is absolutely pronounced. The prevalence of the Internet has made Voice over Internet Phone (News - Alert) (VoIP) services much more practical than traditional phone systems. Many businesses are taking advantage of the convenience and the added features that VoIP systems offer, and are implementing the technology in their offices. But how does one know what level of VoIP services to purchase?

Because VoIP services are not tied to traditional phone lines, businesses can purchase different levels of service. The simplest application is a peer to peer network. This allows employees to only dial other users in their network. This is a cost-effective option for businesses that only want to facilitate VoIP communication within their own office. However, this may not be a viable option for sales-based companies that need to communicate often with outside sources.

For businesses based around that model, adding in VoIP dial in and dial out services is likely necessary. This also contains the peer to peer options mentioned above, as well as the ability to make calls to and receive calls from other phone systems, include those on traditional phone systems.

When looking to implement a VoIP system, it is extremely important for businesses to have a coherent plan. Businesses need to make sure that the hardware they have in place is sufficient to accommodate the new system, and make strategic upgrades where necessary. In addition, because all of the communication will be facilitated through the Internet rather than a central system, businesses need to make sure that they have enough bandwidth to allow for all of that data to be transmitted in addition to the other day to day operations of their business.

Clearly, the cost, ease of use, and features of VoIP systems make them an extremely enticing option for businesses. Business managers simply need to have a plan for implementation and understand what features of the system they need and are willing to pay for.
