Virtual PBX Allows for Better Maternity Leave

Hey VoIP resellers! Here’s a sales pitch for your small business customers: Want to make it easier for employees to take maternity leave? The answer is virtual PBX by V1 VoIP. A virtual PBX means that your phone system is hosted in the cloud as opposed to being hosted in your office. This can be a cost-saving, no-hassle option for a lot of small companies.

Along with the money it will save a small business, one of the huge benefits of deploying a V1 VoIP’s virtual PBX is how easy it allows your employees to take maternity leave. Virtual PBX makes it a breeze to enable a mobile work force and mobile workers. Your workers can now be where the work is, wherever that may be. And during maternity leave, the work should be home.

It also allows new moms to be at home with their newborn and still work effectively. Communications become easier when they are unified. An employee on leave can have their office phone line ring forward to the mobile or their home so they can keep up with their work responsibilities and make adjusting to motherhood easier. That all can be done with your Virtual PBX.

And did we mention the cost savings? If making maternity leave easier for your employees then know that virtual PBX requires no major investment up front. Instead your initial costs are usually just your phones and maybe an updated router if you need it. Because it is hosted remotely, it does not need to be upgraded and it is not on you to keep it running. All you need to pay for are the phones, the router and the features that you want to use.

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services have lowered in price so much over the past years that any business owner can now afford to upgrade their outdated landline based business communication system.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.

Updating a communications system for a business means understanding the business itself, as small and medium size businesses might have specific needs.

At V1 VoIP, we are arming our resellers with the right knowledge to offer SIP trunk services and solutions to potential business customers.

It’s important to know how many telephone lines a business is going to both add as well as existing ones that need to upgrade.

A law firm would need several calls passed at the same time, therefore needing more bandwidth than the interior design firm. Make sure the business has a price in mind for upgrading to SIP trunks. Resellers want to give the clients what they need, but it’s a good idea to make sure businesses have an idea for budget.

2. Do they have multiple sites with different phone numbers?
3. Are they experiencing call-flow issues (e.g. they are unable to transfer a call to a remote facility)?
4. Do they want one access point for customers (e.g. they want clients to call into their main number and dial ‘1’ for customer service, dial ‘2’ for technical support)?
5. Do they desire improved productivity with e-mail and voice mail (e.g. field workers missing critical e-mail messages while out of the office)?
6. Are they having any network problems, or do they need to upgrade their network? (Ideally, they already should have a T1 data line.)
7. Are they frustrated with their current carrier? (Do they feel like their telco is overcharging them or providing poor service?)
