3 Benefits of a VoIP Phone System

If you are considering upgrading your office phone system, you may not have considered the benefits of using a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system. A VoIP phone system can offer you a number of benefits which you won't enjoy when using a traditional phone line. Read on to find out more about 3 benefits of opting for a VoIP phone system.

It will allow you to read your voicemails

Do you ever find it difficult to listen to voicemails? It could be that you are in a meeting and you cannot step outside to call your voicemail. Or you may find that you wish you could forward on information from a voicemail via email but you don't have the time to type the information. You can solve all of these issues by setting up voicemail transcription. Voicemail transcription software uses voice recognition software to transcribe audio voicemail messages into text. This text can then be forwarded on to your email account. This service means you can easily and discreetly read your voicemails before forwarding them on to your colleagues.

It will allow you to add extensions with ease

If you have a traditional telephone system in your office, you will probably find it very difficult to add a new extension. Adding a new extension will often involve installing a physical telephone cable which runs from a junction box to the new phone. Doing this can be time-consuming and can cause a lot of disruption, as it may mean disconnecting everyone else's telephone while the work is completed. However, if you choose to install a VoIP system, you will find it is super easy to add a new extension. All you need to do is to plug the phone in to a computer terminal which is connected to the internet. As soon as the phone is plugged in, it will be ready to use. The only limit to the number of extensions is your internet bandwidth.

It will allow you to log and manage calls using software

Because a VoIP phone system uses the internet to transmit data, it is really easy to use a piece of phone management software to monitor and manage calls. This means you will easily be able to review call logs, call durations and audio recordings of calls.
