Sitting at a desk and using the phone at it used to be the standard way of doing business. But that desk phone that keeps you tethered to one area is going the way of the Dodo bird thanks to the options V1 VoIP offers. From cloud-based phone systems to softphones and webphones, deskphones have become a secondary usage for day to day business operations.
Here are a few reasons V1 VoIP business customers give for using their desk phones less and less:
1. Forces You To Stay At Desk
If you are using your desk phone, guess where you are? You are at your desk. If you have to physically have be at your desk to take work calls, then you are limiting the work capabilities you could be doing. When VoIP services are implemented, an employee can take calls wherever they are and thusly increase productivity.
2. Background Ringing Distractions
When you are tethered to your desk, you are going to hear the sound of other phones ringing. This is a constant distraction for those on the phone trying to do business. To avoid this, VoIP softphones can be set to vibrate mode, and webphone apps can be muted entirely and run on desktop notifications that tell you when somebody is calling. These features allow employees to avoid the incessant ringing and help focus on work.
3. They Take Up Desk Real Estate
Sometimes desk phones simply take up too much space. Old school desk phones are big and bulky machines which can eat up the valuable space you need at your desk. A desk phone can eat up as much room as your laptop or other desk bound items. If you’re dealing with limited space, replacing your desk phone with a mobile option adds more free space quickly.
With the latest V1 VoIP technology for softphones and webphones, you and your employees can work from wherever you want to, and avoid being tied to your desk. That makes you more comfortable, mobile, and prepared for the days when the traditional desk phone becomes extinct. Contact V1 VoIP for more details.
