Choosing VoIP can help startup businesses succeed

For a startup business there is an official feeling that comes along with getting a dedicated phone number for your company. No longer taking important business calls to the same number that your mom calls to invite you to family gatherings adds a level of legitimacy to an organization on the rise. However, there are a number of options on the market and choosing the right one can seem like a daunting task.

A recent article from Business 2 Community looked at this issue and broke down why a VoIP business phone system should be the top choice.

"It might seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but the right phone system will benefit your online startup right out of the gate," reads the piece. "When we say phone system, we aren't talking about an analog phone system, one that uses cumbersome phone cords and the outdated analog phone network known as the PSTN, but rather a phone system that uses Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)."

The article goes on to say that VoIP is not only a cheaper alternative to a traditional phone system but is also a useful tool. From "softphone" additions for mobile device incorporation to virtual numbers that allow business to choose any area code they desire to the low-maintenance costs, companies will find that VoIP systems offer a number of benefits.

Installing a VoIP system is more complicated than just plugging in a cable or two. There is where an experienced IT consulting firm comes into play and can help any company deploy the phone system it needs to take its business to the next level.
