The benefits of this technology are many, not the least of which are freedom and flexibility.

The benefits of switching to VoIP

1. Cost. The cost of using VoIP is very low. Often providers offer free domestic and international calling. In addition, there is no expensive hardware to purchase and install. All you need is a headset, an Internet connection and a VoIP service account. VoIP usually involves a set monthly fee rather than a per call fee.

2. Versatility. Unlike traditional land phone lines that are connected by cables and wires, VoIP phone service will easily follow you wherever your business takes you. You can even take your VoIP phone service with you when you go out of town.

3. Functionality. With VoIP phone service, you can send files at the same time you are talking with a client. You can also see each other, which can be beneficial in creating a stronger bond with your customers.
