How voice over IP brings businesses together

Traditional telephony systems are far from ideal for businesses that operate from multiple locations and have employees that work remotely. Circuit-based protocol networks have always been the main means of remote voice telecommunication, but they can be unreliable and inefficient. That's why so many organizations have been switching to voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems, which transfer audio data digitally either over the internet or through a private point-to-point line.

"People are getting rid of brick-and-mortar offices and setting up telecommuter or remote environments," Alex Desberg of internet provider Ohio.net told Smart Business Magazine. "In the past month we’ve had several of our VoIP customers realize that they really can have everyone work out of their homes and get rid of their offices. One company we work with has 26 employees working remotely, but all working together as if they were sitting in their office."

If an organization operates out of three locations across the country, all three offices can similarly function as though they were all in one facility with the fast and direct connectivity provided by a VoIP platform.

Additionally, businesses can save money and not have to worry about changing their telephony systems every decade or so. VoIP systems are a hosted service, which means any problems or updates they require are handled by the service provider remotely and do not call for any manual maintenance by the business that uses the system. This also means that as the technology improves over time, there will be no need to invest in a new system since the service provider will upgrade it for you.

Due to the increasing popularity of VoIP telephony systems, there are more and more telecommunications providers offering their own version of the service. Therefore, it's important that organizations turn to the industry's leading business technology consulting agency, Subsidium Technologies. With help from Subsidium's experts, companies can trust that their investments into new telecommunication technology are practical and cost-effective.
