Business Telephone System – VOIP FAQ
Why should I go VOIP?
When we get a question like that, in most cases, you have multiple vendors pushing you to go VOIP. There is not a one-size-fits-all scenario for all businesses. Depending on each company, there may NOT be a reason to. We had quite a bit of business call us and ask us if we still install digital phone systems because they can’t find any vendor that can and is still willing to do it. If you are in this situation, give us a call. We offer free consultation to help you understand whether or not it makes sense.
How much does VOIP cost?
VOIP varies depending on the features and functions you require on your phone system setup. In most case, per seat costs range from $15.00 – $50.00 per user; that’s assuming decent wired internet are already in place.
Will I save money going VOIP or cloud?
It’s unnecessary; depending on your configuration and setup, VOIP may cost you more if you have an extensive existing on-premises phone system that has been paid for and has very few lines or channels, whether analog, VoIP, sip, T1, or Pri, it may not save you money. On the other hand, it may help you increase efficiency or solve problems. We offer free consultations to help you understand whether or not it makes sense. Give us a call now to book your free appointment.
Is Cloud and VOIP the same?
Cloud and VOIP are not the same. Cloud, in general, often refers to data, server, and storage that you pay another vendor, provider, or a hosted solution to maintain for you. Before the cloud, most businesses had one or more local servers. Technically, if you have those servers connected to the internet and users are remoting in and using it, that is considered cloud. The only difference is how reliable it is. Do you have multiple internets in case one of your internets goes down? Do you have redundancy built into the servers and or your network? Do you have a backup battery and or generator in case you have power issues? Just because you move everything to the cloud doesn’t mean you should not have a check and balance or audit in place to make sure your data are being backed up and maintained. VOIP, on the other hand, is just a protocol. It stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. You can have a VOIP phone system on the premises that doesn’t allow any users to work remotely due to security reasons. It is still using VOIP locally. VOIP is just a protocol, a language that will enable devices that support the same language to talk to each other. How it is being designed or implemented makes it more or less flexible, more or less secure, more or less affordable, etc. If you are in a situation where you can’t decide to go with VoIP or are having issues choosing which carrier, give us a call. We offer free consultation to help you.
