You know that VoIP technology can enhance your enterprise's telecommunications infrastructure while slashing costs. But perhaps you're still wondering if the benefits are worth the cost and effort of a full-scale VoIP migration. Here are five reasons for making the switch to enterprise VoIP:
1. VoIP lets you do new things. VoIP lets businesses shape voice applications to meet their needs, a capability that simply isn't possible with traditional phone systems. VoIP doesn't just replace a traditional phone system feature for feature, it augments and surpasses the old system by adding new features and capabilities, such call monitoring and recording, integration with back office systems, audio/video conferencing and advanced call management.
2. VoIP is stable and secure. If you have a qualified consultant or engineer design, deploy and maintain your VoIP system, it can be at least as stable and secure as an old-fashioned PBX, and perhaps more so.
3. VoIP is the future. The entire phone industry is headed to VoIP technology. The cost of VoIP-only equipment is dropping and, within the next decade, IP telephony will displace traditional telephony. When this happens, VoIP will become the mainstream phone technology.
4.VoIP is affordable. Although an enterprise VoIP telephony implementation can be costly, long-term adopters will experience clear economic and management advantages.
5. VoIP can be deployed smoothly. A VoIP deployment doesn't have to disrupt ongoing business operations. Converged voice and data solutions can be introduced slowly, site-by-site, office-by-office or even user-by-user.
