Reasons to Choose Astute Hosted VoIP
There has been a lot of talk about VoIP recently; it has been coined as the future of telephony and claimed that it will open up the market to greater options and choice.
But does this apply to your business?
A good place to start is, if you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, then it is almost certain your business can benefit from VoIP.
…Looking to cut the cost of calls?
…Wanting to network multiple offices and employees?
…Looking to centralise cost control and management?
…In need of a more flexible telephone system?
…Nearing the end of your current PBX or support contract?
As with any new technology there are always a lot of questions, hopefully here are some of the answers about the benefits of VoIP.
How does VoIP save money?
Put simply VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is about making calls over the Internet. All you need is a broadband connection and an IP Phone or Softphone. The result is substantially reduced calls anywhere in the world.
The old fashioned PBX does not come cheap, there is the capital cost of acquisition, installation, and ongoing maintenance, and added high cost for additional functionality such as voicemail and unified messaging, and that’s before you’ve even made a call.
With our hosted VoIP solution businesses can take a complete bundled package from us which spreads the cost and enables almost any company to have a best of breed communications system.
What happens when my business grows?
Many small businesses need to buy a new PBX system every two years in order to accommodate business growth. With VoIP from Astute Solutions, your business does not need to have that worry. Additional users can be added remotely in minutes, all you need is a new handset. This means your phone system can evolve as your business does.
Is there a maintenance service?
Another cost issue for a PBX is ongoing maintenance and support. This can be very unpredictable but runs on average at 15% of the cost of the equipment annually, plus any additional moves, adds and changes. Our hosted system is monitored 24 hours a day – remotely, if there is a network issue we’ll usually know a long time before our customers do rather than the other way round.
What features are available on a VoIP phone system?
Our offering is feature rich with even the most advanced business functions as standard. Each user has a ‘normal’ phone (or a soft phone if they prefer) plus desktop features compatible with programs such as their email. When new technology emerges, we don’t need to enter a customer’s business and plug in a new expensive card, or replace the whole system, as all features are enabled off-site.
Where can I use VoIP?With our VoIP solution remote workers can connect to their corporate voice network using broadband anywhere in the world then make and receive calls as if they were sitting at their office desk. This means home and mobile phone calls in to the office can be virtually eradicated.
