In the case of the service provided by IP Telecom the voice packets are carried from your office broadband link to our Hub which is located at the heart of the Irish Internet.
Some popular benefits of using VoIP for Business include:
1). Always Accessible: Work hassle free when & where you want – One of the most popular and commonly requested features of VoIP for Business systems is called “find me/follow me.” While previously you needed to be in the office or a certain location to catch a call with a customer and have a conference call with your colleagues or have separate numbers for your office, mobile phone, and home office, with business VoIP you have one “virtual extension.” You can set-up or request the virtual business phone service to ring all of your extensions for multiple devices simultaneously, or in a certain order which will divert the call from one device to another when you decide, and even better, you determine how to deal with a missed call. It is simply your decision if a missed call goes to your voicemail, or to another extension. And if that is not enough, if you make a call from your cloud phone system, the receiving caller ID will show your business phone number, no matter which device you are calling from.
2). Multiple Messaging Choices: VoIP for business has a number of flexible messaging options – The number of business phone service options that are available for business VoIP users make retrieving and maintaining all your business messages a lot more simplified. These include: a Voicemail Transcription, which can allow you to listen to a message in your inbox, or even receive it as a text instead of listening to the message through voicemail. For example, if a customer called you about a fax he/she needs, and leaves their fax number on the message. Within few clicks you can virtually send the fax as a PDF to that number. There are other options available which can be explained if you request more information from IP Telecom on the subject of interest.
3). Scalable numbers that grow with your business: With VoIP for business and depending on your individual VoIP Provider, you should be able to avail of multiple numbers as and when you need them – Which includes having a multifaceted business phone service with any kind of localized number or vanity number on your account, whether you move from an existing provider and port your existing numbers or decide you need a new range of business numbers.
