VoIP can be used to your advantage

Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) telephony has taken the business world by storm as companies look to make the most of the efficiency gains and cost savings the technology provides.

With organisations constantly looking to expand and grow into new markets the solution, which allows much cheaper telephone calls, has really come into its own and it looks set to stay around for a while, with many describing VoIP as the "future of data transmissions".

Chris Griffith, chief operating officer at White Label Communications, said: "We are truly on the brink of a major change, as numerous businesses are realising the cost and features benefits of VoIP. Because of this, the time for resellers to act is now."

The technology can be added to your businesses with very little disruption to daily life and in fact can go a long way to prevent interruptions in the future. The fact that the technology can remain operational if a premises is out of action, with calls easily diverted elsewhere, means business continuity is dramatically improved.

IP telephony can also provide a cheap way for businesses to communicate internally. This is a major plus point as many companies now have employees working away from the traditional office environment, making collaboration and an easy way of discussing issues more important than ever.

One of the major drivers behind the rise of VoIP solutions in the UK and around the world is the improved levels of connectivity, which means that businesses and employees can plug into reliable and cost effective calls just about anywhere in the world, as long as they have an internet connection.

The improvement in communication skills will not only lead to more efficiency within a business' working practices, but it also means that employees will be much more tech-savvy, as they will need to get to grips with the new system.

This can lead to the implementation of BYOD and cloud technologies, both of which can improve an organisation in the long-term.
