With organizations of every industry depending on telephones as an integral part of a business, staying up-to-date in the latest technology is just as much of a priority. To keep up with consumer needs, most telecom companies are ready to say goodbye to the traditional landline and help customers transition to a VoIP phone system.
To market the transition to customers, Utility Telecom advises other telecom companies to focus on what VoIP can provide that traditional landlines cannot. In order to break down the differences between the two, Utility Telecom focuses on the following main selling-points:
- Technology: Traditional landlines have stood the test of time but require physical wiring that requires plenty of maintenance. VoIP phones, however, don’t require the physical exchanges that landlines do. Instead, VoIP phones make calls using the Internet which makes them easier to set-up, configure, and manage. For businesses that utilize cloud technology, there’s an added benefit of eliminating on-site maintenance on hardware (with the exception of the actual phone).
- Features: Unlike traditional landlines, VoIP phones are feature-rich and offer customizable features that can best fit your company’s needs. In addition to traditional landline features like caller ID, three-way calling, voicemail, etc., VoIP phones are capable of features that include auto-attendants, multi-device functionality, upgradability and more.
- Pricing: Despite the number of features and upgradability that VoIP phone systems offer, their upfront costs are significantly cheaper than landlines. Aside from the phone itself, VoIP phones don’t require hardware since they function using the Internet. Best of all: configuration, maintenance, and upgrades can be done through service providers for a price-effective experience.
When consumers upgrade to VoIP phone systems, they’ll notice a much-needed boost in features and productivity.
