5 Reasons Why VoIP is the Superior Solution for Voice Communications

Voice over Internet Protocol Phone

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that allows individuals to place phone calls over an internet connection. This service has many more capabilities than analog phones and is a cost-effective way to handle an unlimited number of calls, from anywhere.

When you have VoIP, your IP address is considered your Internet Protocol address. Your IP address allows all computers and devices to communicate with each other. As long as you have an internet connection, VoIP allows you to call anyone without the need for a local phone service. As you can imagine, this is an ideal solution for a remote workforce or a hybrid work environment, which many organizations have adapted to today.

With VoIP, users have the ability to change and control their phone settings from the convenience of their desktop. For example, you can choose who you have on speed dial, set up your voicemail preferences, and more advanced options such as actually seeing who in your organization is on a call and who they’re speaking with.
