landline to voip technology old phone

In only 7 short years, traditional landlines are set to be phased out in favour of new technology. If your business is still using a landline service, maybe you should consider how it can affect your businesses future.

Whilst the idea of making the dreaded switch from landline to VoIP can seem a bit daunting and nerve-wracking, being forced to make the switch abruptly will cause more drama than a Shakespeare story. Not to mention the time, money and efficiency you’re wasting by clinging to outdated technology.

If any of these 3 reasons apply to you, it’s time to switch to VoIP technology.

1. You’re Dealing with Hardware or Software Failure

When you’re using a landline, something as simple as a windy day can grind your phones (and your business) to a halt. Hosted VoIP technology provides a wide variety of benefits whether you’re dealing with a natural disaster or technology failure.

If you’re worried about getting caught up in natural disaster, we can help you out. None of your phones settings, features, or call recording would be lost. If in the unfortunate scenario that your business was affected, keep the phones ringing by simply diverting to an alternate number – Mobile, home phone or a temporary location that best suits you.

Need to relocate employees? No problem! It’s as simple as unplugging the phones and plugging it back into another location with internet access.

2. You Need to Cut Costs

If you’re using a landline, you’re probably familiar with the extortionate costs involved – Equipment, software installation and ongoing maintenance fees.

A hosted VoIP system removes all these costs by transferring your business telecoms over to the cloud. As a result, you only pay a small monthly fee.

Savings can also be seen in more than just a monetary way – Employee productivity massively increases due to the flexibility of the system. Work from a variety of locations by having calls diverted to a mobile, home phone, or simply take your handset with you and plug it into an internet connection, wherever you are in the world. Never miss that important call and no more sifting through the mountains of voicemails when you come back to the office.

3. You are Up for a Service Renewal

If it’s finally come to that time for you to renew your service with your current provider, be sure to weigh out your options. VoIP can not only save you time and money, but can also mean less work, better security and more features.

With traditional on-premise phone systems, you usually require someone to be tasked with maintenance of the phone system. Hosted VoIP removes that labour and cost as our support team takes care of that for you, absolutely free of charge.
