If you are planning to open a new office, you have to consider many things. One thing that is very important is your phone system. There are many different types of phone systems to choose from, such as spectralink phone systems, which can make it difficult, especially if you do not know a lot about them. Two types that may work well for you is the VoIP phone system or the mVoIP phone system. Below is some information about this so you can make the best choice of what is right for your company.

VoIP Phone Systems

A Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system is less expensive when compared to traditional phone systems and offers many features. Instead of using a phone line, VoIP uses the Internet to deliver calls. This means anyone in your company can place a phone call to a customer from anywhere as long as they have an Internet connection. This is beneficial for those that travel a lot.

In many cases, VoIP phone systems are cloud-based, which means you will not have to have any equipment installed. This saves you money in labor costs, as well as saves room in your company.

Some features you will find with this type of phone system include a custom auto attendant, music while on hold, virtual fax, call forwarding, call recording, conferencing, and professional greeting. The exact features you will have available depends on the vendor you choose to provide you with your phone service.

Mobile VoIP Phone system

With mobile VoIP phone system (mVoIP) you can use your smartphone as a VoIP phone. It can also work well on any type of wireless device, such as a tablet or laptop. You can take advantage of WiFi hot spots so you will not have to pay the costs of your data or voice plan.

With this type of phone system, the vendor you choose will install a server in your company and connect it to your network. The server then manages your phone calls internally, and communicates with the VoIP provider to connect phone calls going outside of the office. You will also have to install an app on the smartphones using mVoIP. The vendor you hire will supply you with this app.

The vendor will also provide you with handsets, known as SIP phones, that you can use at your desk just as you would your smartphone if you were away from the office.

Talk with a few vendors about VoIP and mVoIP to determine what they can offer you to help you make a choice.
