Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become a common tool for communication and is known for its cost-saving benefits. But what is it about VoIP that actually saves you money in comparison to older phone systems? Let’s break it down.
One benefit is that using a VoIP number (or virtual number) can save you money on international calls. A virtual number is not attached to a physical landline, but when a call is made, it still appears that way. The benefit is international customers can call you at the lower local rate since your virtual number is not actually tied to a physical location.
Another cost-saving feature includes video and teleconferencing abilities. Virtual meetings supported by VoIP cut down on travel expenses for businesses that have staff working in the field or remotely. The need for costly travel via car or plane is eliminated once you take advantage of virtual meetings.
Additionally, VoIP saves you money because the handsets are less costly than older phones, mobile phone costs can be reduced since VoIP enables you to use your smartphone as an office extension phone, and you will never need new phone lines installed because it connects directly to the broadband network you already have.
