Technology Changes Everything

Have you thought about upgrading your business phone line to VOIP? Maybe you have, but as the old adage goes “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”. The regular business phone system has been working fine for decades. Why change things now?

I would dare say that the old business phone line was indeed broken, but it was the best we had so we made due. 

Recently, I was helping a friend clean out their storage. We found the old business phone system he had bought brand new in 1987. He had about 10 lines (but this beast could be upgraded to a lot more). The entire system (handsets and all) took about about 5 large boxes.

In one of those boxes, I found the manual, and receipt. This phone system cost about $10,000. Yes, that is $10,000 1987 money. You could still buy a house around here for $30,000 in those days.

VOIP Is An Upgrade

As I glanced through the manual of this archaic phone system I had a startling realization. Todays VOIP systems not only have more features, but cost a fraction of the price. 

If you have made it this far, I am assuming you know what VOIP is, but in case you don’t: Think Skype or Face Time. VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol. Today, the term has grown to encompass internet based phone systems. Even if they do use video as well as voice. Did I mention the lack of video conferencing on that 1987 business phone system?

Why You Should Upgrade Your Business Phone

A Few Reasons To Upgrade Your Business Phone System To VOIP features are a huge reason to upgrade your business phone line to VOIP. You can have all the features that cost extra on traditional systems plus features that traditional systems simply can’t offer. 

One of those amazing features is the app integration that VOIP can offer. You can access your business phone from anywhere by using the app. This simple feature frees you up to do what you need to do while always having the office line in your pocket.

But thanks to VOIP, you can have a great office phone system for a fraction of what it used to cost. They say technology makes things cheaper and better. By using VOIP that is a true statement when it comes to a business phone system.

VOIP is future ready. If you use a VOIP system, your plan can be upgraded as technology improves. Most features can be a software update, and your hardware is safe and ready to use with the new features.
