What Real Customers Actually Know About VoIP

Ask a V1 VoIP reseller how much their potential customers really know about what VoIP is and what it does and you’ll quickly learn that most non-tech people are still very confused as to what VoIP can do for them. Here are some of the main concerns that business owners raise to our V1 VoIP resellers.

Do I get to keep my phone number?
No matter how many customers you deal with, this is the first question asked. It’s an easy yes, but it also illustrates the degree which business owners do not understand VoIP.

Is the call quality different?
You might not notice if an email takes a second to send or a web page a bit longer to load, but you will notice if your call quality sucks. Voice is real time communications. What they need to know is that almost ALL of VoIP quality issues stem from poor Internet connection. So increasing bandwidth is a conversation that often needs to happen. Which by the way, will make those emails and web pages faster too.

Am I going to have to buy more hardware?
There is no PBX purchase required. V1 VoIP allows you to set up a fully featured office phone system with little more than a laptop and a few IP or SIP phones; the rest of your PBX can be hosted in the cloud. While we agree that the process of getting up and running is straightforward enough for small and mid-sized businesses to do rather quickly, it is important to recognize that a network does need to meet certain parameters to be made voice-ready.

What happens if the Internet goes down?
Whether a business is using landline service or VoIP is not relevant if a power outage occurs. A traditional phone system still needs to be powered on to function. Most companies have battery backup systems in place that already supply power to the PBX in the case of a power outage.

Can I use my mobile phone with VoIP?
There are NO issues with using VoIP on mobile devices. Calls can be routed to mobile devices, making mobility and accessibility simple to switch back and forth.

Not all prospective customers really understand what VoIP is and what it does. Knowing that you will have these questions and concerns from prospective business customers help our V1 VoIP resellers to prepare their pitch better.

Are VoIP Calls the Same as Skype Ones?

Can I keep my phone number is the first question without fail, that V1 VoIP reseller customers always ask. But right after that, comes questions about call quality and whether or not it will stay the same once the switch to VoIP is made. If you’ve ever made a Skype call, you can understand why the question of call quality is asked. VoIP and Skype may use similar technologies to make phone calls over the Internet, but the respective voice quality of each solution differs significantly from the other.

Thankfully, with V1 VoIP providing services and solutions to resellers, you do not have to worry. V1 VoIP is designed to far surpass landline telephones and real-time communications apps in terms of voice quality.

Skype requires the same amount of bandwidth as a VoIP call, but the voice quality still differs. Skype implements the respected Opus audio codec, but the Skype network was not built to be undersubscribed bandwidth wise. Even though the “recommended” client side bandwidth for a Skype call is the same as a VoIP call, the call quality will suffer because of Skype’s own bandwidth limitations.

When on Skype and the call quality deteriorates, you are not dealing with a flawed design, but a limited network infrastructure that cannot provide dedicated service to millions of anonymous individuals. This is one of the key issues that V1 VoIP attempts to rectify. The average VoIP call takes the same amount of bandwidth as a Skype call does (100 kpbs) and yet still sounds of higher quality. V1 VoIP creates separate real-time networks and partner with Tier-1 Internet companies to ensure the highest bitrate possible.

In general, Skype and business VoIP are using comparable audio codecs, both of which are capable of wideband voice quality. But Skype’s network holds its voice quality back. And this is not just a voice quality issue, because Skype is more likely than business VoIP to outright drop calls in the case of severe packet loss, whereas business VoIP companies often make eradication of dropped calls a supreme priority.

If you’re fearful that switching to VoIP services will diminish the quality of your calls, fear not! The only thing your co-workers will notice is a crisper and clearer sound.

Resellers Save Businesses Money with V1 VoIP

One reason V1 VoIP resellers see hesitation in business customers investing in a new IP phone system, is they do not want to spend money on phone systems when they are currently working.

Here are several ways a V1 VoIP reseller can convince a business owner that making the switch to VoIP services and solutions can save them money.

1. VoIP is cheaper than landlines.

V1 VoIP offers the amenities businesses need to remain competitive like simaltaneous calls, call forwarding, text to voice mails, music on hold, eFax, call forwarding to mobile phones and so much more.

3. Future hardware costs.
Those phones you think are working fine are actually dinosaurs. Technicians to service them will become increasingly hard to find as eveyone is now being trained to service new VoIP technology. Ones who can service this outdated hardware will become more expensive, and that’s before you get to the actual phone parts, which are no longer being made. By contrast, VoIP hardware requires less maintenance, which in turn means cheaper prices in the long run.

4. Get Mobile!
VoIP technology is great for companies with remote workers. Office extensions can be programmed to ring on any Internet-enabled devices, including home phones, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. If a company has several remote workers who prefer to use smartphones or other mobile devices as the main method of communication, then V1 VoIP services will unify them regardless of where they are.
