What is VOIP? What you need to know and the benefits of VOIP

​Every day we hear about new technologies and services that will change our way of life. One of these is Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) Technology. If you’re thinking about the type of phone system you want in your business, VOIP could be the best choice. But what is it?

What is VOIP, and why should you care?


The main reason to switch to VOIP is that it saves you a lot of time and money.  Voice over Internet Protocol (commonly referred to as “VOIP”) is a technology that allows you to place calls over a broadband internet connection similar to a traditional phone line, but for a fraction of the cost.

There are many advantages to using VOIP. If you have recently considered changing from your conventional phone provider, here are some of the reasons why you should switch.



How can VOIP improve your business?

VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol and is a technology that replaces your telephone lines.

Advantages: Lower costs, no longer reliant on physical phone lines, you can be anywhere in the world and speak to anyone else in the world that has an internet connection.

Benefits: You can save money and enjoy better quality calls with your business.


Why switch to VOIP now?

ISDN lines will be phased out in 2025, so now is the time to begin making a business case to be proactive in implementing new technology rather than just reacting when the time comes.

By being proactive now, you will reap the rewards as a business sooner rather than later and be ahead of the game.  Why not start saving money now when it’s inevitable you will have to make changes in the future.


Is VOIP more expensive than a traditional landline?

​No.  VOIP calls will generally work out cheaper than making calls using a traditional landline phone.  This is especially true if you make a lot of international calls or calls to mobiles, resulting in you saving money over the long run.


We’re only a small business, will VOIP work for us?

Absolutely! VOIP gives staff more freedom to pick the best way to work every day. Projects can be completed faster and client services can be planned in advance, and smaller businesses now have access to enterprise solutions (that only the big corporates could access previously).  Whether you are a one-man-band or bigger!
