Why Switching To VoIP Would Be The Right Decision

How to setup VoIP for your office in 6 easy steps

With the new technology and call clarity advanced of VoIP business phone systems over the last few years, it is a great time to switch to a VoIP solution. In most cases, you can get similar or even more advanced features as a traditional phone system for much less cost. To prepare your business for the switch, follow these seven steps:

  1. Determine the amount of users.

The first step to setting-up VoIP in your office is to determine how many will be using it. This will help determine how many lines you will need, whether or not your internet connection can support your expected call volume, and which features are most important to your organization.

  1. Make sure you have a fast internet connection

You need to make sure that your internet can handle the amount of volume that your VoIP system will demand. It is important to test this for two reasons:

  • Checking out your connection prior to getting a VoIP system will save you the frustration of low call quality or dropped calls that accompany an insufficient connection.
  • It can potentially save you more time and hassle. If you switch to a VoIP system only to find that you have an insufficient connection, then you either have to cancel your service, or you have to upgrade the internet connection in your office – both of which are hassles.

     3.    Create a VoIP budget

VoIP contains an exciting array of features – which is why it is easy to get carried away with all the options and promotions. However, it is important to stay on track with your budget. In general, it costs around $30 per user to around $60 – 70 for premium plans. Pay annually to get the best deal.

  1. Determine which features are most important

There are several features available for VoIP, such as unique phone numbers for each employee, an autocall router, call rules, conference calling, mobile apps and more. You’ll want to decide which features are most appropriate for your business.

  • Write down specifically why you are getting a business phone system, what you want it to accomplish, and what its primary uses will be.
  • Do some research on which VoIP features are indispensable to your business.
  • Make two lists: one with your must-have features and one with features that you would like but do not absolutely need to have.
