Take the ‘virtual leap’ towards real savings for your business
Story by "Justin Grey" | August 1, 2012, 11:28 AM
An NBN environment will soon see VoIP (Voice over IP) becoming the default phone option and this has spurred many businesses to begin taking the ‘virtual leap’ towards high-quality, feature-rich VoIP or hosted/virtual PBX solutions.
Instead of using a traditional landline, VoIP delivers your calls over an internet connection and offers more features and flexibility along with lower rental and set-up fees.
A hosted/virtual PBX phone system also eliminates the frustrations of limited lines and inflexibility of traditional PBXs to accommodate the changing needs of growing businesses. Plus, because it is a pure digital service, the voice quality is often much better than a traditional landline with a good internet connection.
Most providers offer the ability to manage your virtual PBX via an Online Portal, which means you can also say goodbye to unnecessary maintenance costs and the need to call a technician every time you want to make a change to your system. A virtual solution gives control of the phone system back to its rightful owner – you.
Businesses that have taken the ‘virtual leap’ towards next-generation solutions such as VoIP have reported savings of up to 60 per cent. Isn’t it time you did too?
And importantly, be sure to look for a VoIP provider that offers number porting. This means you can bring your existing phone numbers across into ‘the cloud’ without worrying about having to distribute and advertise a new number.
MyNetFone is Australia’s leading provider of hosted voice and data communications services for residential, business and enterprise users. For more information, visit www.mynetfone.com.au/business or call 1300 923 771.
