Companies of all sizes can benefit from a business VoIP service

How companies can benefit from small business VoIP service

Business VoIP systems are clearly becoming the go-to communications solution for smaller companies.

Choosing the best VoIP for small business can go a long way towards making your enterprise more competitive in an economy where every company, big or small, needs every edge it can get. RingCentral uses the latest in cloud technology to provide subscribers with a powerful phone solution that not only addresses your office communication needs, but also gives you advantages over your competition.

What used to be an alternative to expensive on-premise phone systems is now the go-to communications suite of organizations of all sizes. It doesn’t matter if they’re running a fledgling company with a handful of employees or an established corporate enterprise with its own call center; entrepreneurs are starting to recognize that solutions such as RingCentral business phone service are the better choice for the modern workplace.

The advantages of VoIP for small businesses

But what makes this business phone system better than the tried and tested on-premise systems? What exactly made company owners abandon their traditional telephony solutions in favor of this new way of managing internal and external communications?

Here are some reasons, to name a few:

Affordability – VoIP systems became attractive to small businesses because of the promise of low costs. It takes advantage of the internet to significantly reduce call costs. Long-distance rates, in particular, are lower compared to traditional long-distance phone calls. In addition to this, its PBX component is also hosted over the internet, thus effectively reducing expensive hardware requirements like bulky servers or physical PBX boxes.

Mobility – A small business VoIP system like RingCentral allows users to communicate even outside of the office. Users can enjoy calling features like advanced call forwarding to route calls to several numbers simultaneously, use virtual extensions from any PC by downloading the free softphone, and take calls anywhere through downloading free calling apps for mobile phones and devices.

Scalability – A good IP phone system for small business grows as an organization grows. RingCentral, for example, easily adjusts to any office communication needs. Adding more employees? Simply add virtual extensions. No need for cables and wiring. Need to open a small office in another state? This small business VoIP service can connect multiple offices under one phone; there’s no need for a different business VoIP provider in each location.

Ease of use – With a traditional on-premise system, company owners would need dedicated manpower to manage and maintain. This isn’t a problem with VoIP phone service for business, since it makes it so that communications can be managed via an easy-to-use web interface that is accessible through any internet-enabled device like a PC or a tablet. Once logged in, entrepreneurs already have full command of the system, giving their existing phones features they never had before. Operating hours can even be set based on whether or not personnel are available to take calls at any given time. Also, to maximize the use of the service, providers such as RingCentral offer physical plug-and-play VoIP phones for small businesses, which are available for lease or for sale. These phones are similar to regular landlines, except they are designed for VoIP calls.

Affordability, mobility, scalability, and ease of use are just some of the benefits one can get by subscribing to the best small business VoIP solution from RingCentral.

Get Phone Flexibility with RingCentral Business VoIP phone solution

Achieve greater flexibility with business VoIP Solutions from RingCentral

These IP phone systems for small business give companies flexible solutions that adjust to varying communications and collaboration needs.

What sets a VoIP phone system for small business apart from other office phone solutions is its ability to stretch itself according to the needs of a business. Whether the company is expanding due to growth or contracting due to streamlining, this modern internet-hosted solution is able to easily adjust based on the demands of the situation.

With traditional on-premise systems, business owners are likely stuck with what’s already in place. Adding new phone extensions would require the installation of new cables, and opening a new branch or office means there will be a need for new telephone numbers and a separate communications system. This is not to mention that over time, these offices will be stuck with phone equipment with depreciated value, like PBX boxes and desk phones.

Small business VoIP phone systems that adjust to a company’s needs

This is why a lot of companies realized that taking the cloud route for business communications is the way to go. With this kind of service, businesses will be able to gain these advantages:

  • Virtual phone lines – Instead of PSTN, RingCentral offers the ability to use Voice over Internet Protocol. This allows companies to make calls over the internet. RingCentral gives each subscriber a telephone number (local or toll-free) that can also be used to call virtual phone numbers as well as traditional phone lines. Adding new numbers is also a breeze with an existing account.
  • Virtual Extensions – Easily add or delete extensions for employees and departments through an easy-to-use interface. No new hardware and cable setup needed. With RingCentral VoIP for business, admins can simply add extensions for new hires, or delete them as needed. Also, while you can use VoIP phones for your extension line, physical business phones are not a requirement. You can connect your virtual extension to a computer or mobile device through the RingCental App.
  • Cloud PBX – Advanced business phone features that are normally found on expensive traditional systems like auto-attendant, call forwarding, voicemail and more are also available in this type of system. However, unlike on-premise systems, this VoIP phone system for business is hosted on remote data centers that feature multiple primary and backup servers. With the system being accessed over the web, it becomes accessible in any location where an internet connection is available. As a result, employees can be connected no matter where they are under one communications system.
  • No Contracts – RingCentral does not require subscribers to commit to any contracts. Users are allowed to test the service for a time to find out if it’s a great fit. No commitments necessary.
