If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Fix It

If expenses are your main concern, then worry not! Moving to IP Telephony is actually a lot cheaper than the ISDN copper lines that you will be used to. This is due to the IP based communications utilising the internet to connect people.
Alongside this you won’t be leasing the copper lines at a monthly premium like you do currently, moving to an Ip based solution can also have more money saving benefits such as ease of rollout, service packages from your supplier and even lack of training needed to operate these new communication tools.
Too difficult to move
Usually replacing any system can be time consuming and resource intensive. also concerns that the time taken to realise any cost savings will not be worth the effort to change are usually a sticking point for key decision makers. Because of this many businesses wrongly assume that the switch to IP telephony will be difficult and cost consuming… But they’re wrong.
For starters there are no new lines needing to be installed whatsoever! IP works off your already existing internet connection to connect people. Secondly since it’s a replacement for ISDN you’ll be freeing up your bandwidth for the rest of your internet needs in your company further optimising your resources. Finally, if your company is seasonal then IP based solutions are scalable based on the number of staff needed at any time meaning you can optimise your spend better!
For a lot of newcomers to the IP voice revolution their first experience is the likes of skype or other mass voice chatting software. Although these tools are great for handling personal use and long conversations without much switching when it comes to quick switching between calls and managing your switchboard it falls extremely short on everything from call quality to organisation.
Voice IP calls however are specially created and developed to handle large packets of information coming through it at any time which always guarantees excellent quality, instant connectivity and best of all ease of access. Alongside this the management tools and organisation available for IP based solutions are second to none!
