The year was 1995. A stamp was $0.32, a gallon of gas averaged $1.09, and businesses mainly relied on desk phones and pagers to manage communication. Getting paged while out of the office often meant stopping at home or a pay phone to reach coworkers and customers. Cell phones were expensive and its technology was still in its infancy. Even if you carried around one of those wireless phones the size of a brick, service was spotty and only available in large metropolitan areas.
Fortunately, the year 1995 was also when Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) originated from the musings of hobbyists recognizing the enormous potential of sending voice data packets over the Internet rather than standard phone lines. As broadband Ethernet blanketed the globe, VoIP technology improved with greater call clarity and speed. Now well into the 21st century, VoIP is the choice communication platform for all organizations, even small ones.
The sole proprietor or very small start-up may not initially appreciate the appeal of VoIP services. After reviewing the cost, features and reliability, however, those independent contractors and cozy family-run businesses will seriously consider making the switch. Here are the most important reasons such companies should take a chance on VoIP.
You’ll never miss a call. Your business phone number goes where you do. With VoIP, your call can be answered on your VoIP-enabled desk phone, a cell phone using an app, or on your computer with Internet connection. Especially for individual business owners or new companies, unanswered calls can mean a lost sale or unhappy client. Every sale and every customer is important. You’ll avoid situations where you may miss a call.
VoIP grows with you, even temporarily.
