Here we will look at why IP Phones for Small businesses are becoming increasingly important in today’s climate…

There are many benefits to be felt by switching to an IP desk phone from a traditional line phone, especially for SMEs:

  • Firstly, switching to VoIP can save your business money – VoIP frees your business from having to install new phone lines, providers can connect directly to your existing broadband connection. This makes it cheaper to make calls as it utilises an internet connection, especially for long distance calls.
  • Secondly, VoIP can increase your security – VoIP can operate via an encrypted VPN connection, allowing you to protect the sensitive data of your business.
  • Thirdly, VoIP services have greater mobility On landlines each home/business is assigned its own number, therefore if there is a movement it can be a long process to transfer services. However, with a VoIP system there are no constraints, you can move easily according to your business demands.
