					 Cutting Costs Through the Advantage of VoIP
               Service Providers




Today, VoIP service providers generally offer great advantages that help
businesses grow. Such advantages include stable basic telephone features,
advanced phone features and most importantly, reduced expenses. This article
will discuss how VoIP providers can actually help you save money and gain profit
while maintaining the business' efficiency.

In the past, because of limited technology, businesses lose opportunity to create
solid relationship with their customers due to “small” problems brought about by
the uncompetitive capabilities of previous phone services. These “small”
problems that customers encounter (e.g. getting a busy signal, phone
continuously ringing without being picked up, etc.) would accumulate if not
properly resolved, and would eventually lead to business bankruptcy. To avoid
this from happening, you should invest on the kind of technology that would help
your company improve its services. It is comforting to know that in this age, there
are already a handful of VoIP service providers that promise to make business
better.
Maximizing latest technology while minimizing costs
An intelligent businessman should know that a phone system offered by popular
VoIP providers could essentially strengthen his business. One can choose from
any of the VoIP service providers that take advantage of the latest technology.
Having said this, a PBX phone system would be a reliable and necessary
investment. In layman's term, a PBX phone system is a phone network that
functions to direct internal calls and make external calls via trunk lines. This kind
of phone system allows the user to avoid busy signals, ensure every customer's
call is answered, and control internal communication among employees.

Maximizing phone system's basic and extra features
There are already VoIP service providers that offer useful combination of basic
and extra features. What's great about this is that the user gets to enjoy both
types of features without spending too much. Thus, efficiency increases while
costs are kept low.

A PBX phone system should basically provide user the ability to do the following:
•     call forwarding
•     call waiting
•     conference calls
•     voicemail
•     intercoms
•     call transfer

In addition, a smart PBX phone system has the following advanced features:
•     professional-looking 1-800 numbers
•     internet fax
•     answering rules
•     music on hold
•     outlook integration

Narrowing down phone service options
The options that VoIP providers give can be overwhelming and the surge of
information gathered from the internet can sometimes become confusing. So
before shelling out capital, it would be smart to:

 Assess the needs of your business. What type of business is it? What
  product/service does it aim to provide? How many trunk lines does it need?
  How many persons would it employ? How many employees would need to
  have their own individual telephones?
 Study options. It would be wise to go for a 30-day trial before deciding on
  which provider to choose. Testimonials and advice coming from reliable
  friends and colleagues would also matter in reducing options and finally
  selecting the best one.
 Invest wisely. Make sure that the provider you choose has a good reputation
  and can provide stable service.
 Evaluate results. A regular evaluation with your team/staff would help you
  gauge the quality of service the chosen company provides; and whether or not
  it would be necessary to remain with or to explore other VoIP service
  providers.
