Why Small Businesses Have Not Switched to VoIP

Are you a VoIP reseller experiencing resistance from potential small business customers about switching to VoIP services and solutions? V1 VoIP has figured out why these customers are hesitant:

1. They don’t understand how VoIP works.
If a person isn’t the most tech savvy, VoIP seems like a very intimidating concept. As a reseller, it is your job to teach business owners, even in the most simplistic way, to understand that by their not making this update, they are allowing their competition to have the upper hand.

2. They think VoIP is really expensive.
VoIP technology and cloud communication services have lowered in price so much over the past years that any business owner can now afford to upgrade their outdated landline based business communication system. Not only that, but almost immediatly VoIP services will begin SAVING them money.

3. They think their phones work fine.
You will run into the adage, if it ain’t broke then don’t fix it quite a lot. What most business owners fail to understand is that landlines are outdated. Their phones will be more expensive to service and fix, if they even can be fixed. This will end up costing them more in the long run.

4. They don’t understand they are losing a competitive edge.
If a business is not utilizing VoIP services, their competition probably is and they are therefore losing out to them because of the way VoIP and cloud services are changing the way business is done today. V1 VoIP can offer a business so many more options when it comes to adding value to a business, the ability to effectively compete with even the big businesses. Here are only a few ways how:

Cloud Options: Cloud hosted services offers faster service and includes more security options.
Mobile Workforce: The ability for employees to work when not in the office by using their own Smartphone or tablet is becoming more popular each and every day.
Video Conferences: Connecting with employees who work remotely, and others, is easy to do using video conferencing capabilities. This also means you’re no longer limited to hiring local people.

So, want to resell cloud VoIP services? If you feel that this reselling opportunity is one that you can benefit from, we would love to hear from you! Because predictions are telling us that the

Small and medium-sized business owners who still haven’t signed up for VoIP technology and cloud communication services will do you sell in the next 2 to 3 years, so be sure not to wait too long.

V1 VoIP Allows Setting Spend Limits on Calls

V1 VoIP allows you to set a daily spend alert on your account. This allows you to set a maximum cost to you of daily calls, providing you with peace of mind that the first you know of problems with your account won’t be when you receive a large phone bill.

In recent months members of ITSPA (the industry body representing VoIP providers) have seen a large increase in incidents of VoIP fraud.

Why Set a Spend Limit

V1 VoIP offers the option to set max daily limits on any connection’s outbound calling. Similar to destination rate limits, by setting spend limits on oubound calls it prevents one compromised connection or one expensive call from running up too large a bill.

If you attempt to make a call and you have already reached your daily spend limit you will hear a message saying that your outbound call has been blocked.

You can manage your maximum daily spend settings from your control panel. For more information on how and why to set soemd limits on outgoing calls, contact V1 VoIP or sign up now.

VoIP Services and Solutions for Schools

One area V1 VoIP resellers consistently say is undertargeted is schools. We don’t mean upper level educational facilities like colleges. Even preschools and lowers schools can benefit greatly from cloud hosted VoIP services offering a variety of features and capabilities that are ideal for a school environment, and all for a lower price than landline telephone services.

By utilizing V1 VoIP services and solutions, a school is able to work more productively, so they can focus on the students and community. In turn, by saving money using VoIP, schools can use those savings to put into programs that will benefit their students.

How can V1 VoIP services benefit a school?
1. Manage calls.
V1 VoIP services allow users to set hour rules to manage incoming calls. This way the principal and even teachers can define where calls get sent to based on the time of day and day of week. For example during regular school year and day hours, incoming calls can be received by the secretary, but weekends or after-hours, calls can be sent to a third party answering service. This also allows teachers to make and receive calls, message coworkers, and review voicemails.

2. Simultaneous Location Ring
Schools can take advantage of simultaneous phone registration, so multiple phone devices can be registered to the same user. When a call arrives for the principal for example, all registered phones will ring at the same time. This way they can have an office desk phone, home office phone, and their mobile phone actively registered in the phone system, so they can answer incoming calls on any of those devices.

3. Emergency Locating
In the current climate, being prepared for an emergency is a must. Schools use E911 so they can immediately contact help in an emergency. E911 allows a school to specify the address of the school so that emergency personnel can locate the source of any 911 calls made from there.

3. Campus Connectivity
Many schools are not limited to one stand alone building, so maintaining a phone system across a campus can be expensive. This is where V1 VoIP’s cloud hosted services can shine and connect multiple locations.

4. Teacher Inboxes
Teachers can use voicemail-to-email to quickly review voicemails right from their email inboxes, which automatically sends each employee’s personal voicemails directly to their email. As teachers are often on the go between classes, they can stay up-to-date with their messages instead of having to return to one particular phone to review them.

V1 VoIP Local Number Portability LNP Wholesale Services

Do you need a phone number ported? V1 VoIP has one of the largest LNP (Local Number Portability) services offering around. V1 VoIP has approached the problem by automating the process by developing an online signature LOA and incorporating it into our proprietary backend VoIP Portal. The result has been a smoother and faster porting process for customers.

VoIP’s rapid growth has been challenging for many carriers as they try to process LNP orders. Many carriers are still doing number portability by using handwritten LOA’s and emails. By doing LNP with VoIP Portal, porting a phone number either has become easier. This means if you are porting one, five, or 1,000 phone numbers in bulk.

V1 VoIP’s strength lies in its large footprint. It is one of the few carriers that is a true nationwide provider with several thousand rate centers. Because we have so many rate centers it makes our number porting capabilities much easier and faster.
