Can You Afford to Have Your Business Look Down

Can your business afford to look down to customers? It’s a simple and yet interesting question. In the current business economy can you afford for a day, an hour, or even a minute, to have your company look like it is not currently operating to a potential customer?

Let’s face it, the answer is no.

Recently a bakery contacted V1 VoIP about our phone services. They were having a class at the bakery and there was a massive storm going on outside. While the power to the building did not go out, their phones service went down. Three different customers were trying to call to cancel the class because of the weather and could not reach the bakery. What was worse, the phones were down for a week.

Think of it… an entire week with customers unable to reach you. With no outgoing message saying ‘please leave a message.’ Instead someone saying the number was not in service. How many customers did they lose during that week?

When they signed up for V1 VoIP services, they now can have those calls forwarded to their cellular phones in the case of an outage like that. They can change their outgoing message with ease. They have added on hold notifications about classes, promotions, and directing visitors to their website to see their gallery of wedding cakes.

Can you afford to have your business look down to prospective customers? No. You cannot. Contact V1 VoIP today to learn how your company can appear to never be out of business again.

Three Reasons Businesses Should Upgrade Phone Systems

V1 VoIP gives reasons why businesses should upgrade telecommunications to cloud-based hosted PBX services and solutionsAt V1 VoIP we find it hard to believe that there are competitive businesses that still have not upgraded their telephone systems. While sure, their phones work and they can make calls, they are missing out on so many features, upgrades and advances that VoIP and cloud-based communications like the ones V1 VoIP offers can give them. Here are a few reasons businesses tell V1 VoIP resellers as to why they have not yet upgraded their communication systems yet.

1. It’s too expensive to switch to VoIP
Actually, it’s quite the opposite. First, VoIP and cloud based services have drastically decreased in price over recent years so that even small and medium sized businesses can take advantage of them. For those still on outdated telephone systems, it is becoming increasingly expensive to support and maintain this old-fashioned technology.

Since these legacy phone systems date back to a whole century, they will generally require an older technical environment. Just as applications grow more expensive to maintain as they age, so does the infrastructure that comprises up of these legacy phone systems.

2. New VoIP Equipment Won’t Fit in the Office
If you’re still using a bulky fax machine that takes up an entire corner in your office, then yes, we see where you might think that. But maintaining the expensive infrastructure also comes with keeping the bulky equipment around the office premise, which is likely to consume a lot of office space, which only means that things will get a lot more cumbersome for employees. But with cloud-based services, all that bulky machinery in your mind will actually be occupying a different location altogether.

3. I’m Unfamiliar with PBX, so I’d like to Stick with what I Know
Companies who are sticking to their outdated phone systems should know that hosted PBX systems are actually becoming the preffered choice of business owners. Companies are seeing the benefits of their reduced costs, reduced equipment (the only tangible equipment that is required on the office premise are IP phones are lines connected to those IP phones) and the ability to be connected while on the move, hosted PBX solutions have become the preferred solutions for evolving businesses. In addition, maintenance expenses will become nullified since all the equipment of hosted PBX phone systems will be present at off-site locations.

Don’t be one of those businesses stuck on outdated and obsolete technology for your phone system. Contact V1 VoIP today and so we can offer you our services to update you to the modern era of telecommunications.

Reasons Employees Are Using Their Desk Phones Less

V1 VoIP explains why desk phones are becoming obsolete in business because of VoIP services such as web phones, soft phones and VoIP services to increase mobility, productivity and efficiencySitting 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.

Temporary numbers are generally provided for businesses porting their phone numbers over to a new VoIP provider. This ensures that there is no disruption during the transition process. When a caller dials the established number, she will be routed to the temporary number until the port is complete. Porting a local phone number typically takes 2 to 4 weeks, while porting a toll-free number typically takes 6 to 10 business days.

Most VoIP deskphones require only a few steps to start making calls with your VoIP service. First, you’ll need to ensure that each phone can be plugged into your office Internet via an Ethernet cord.

Softphones can connect to your business VoIP account and make and receive all the calls that your deskphone can. And even better, the setup time for a standard softphone takes only a few minutes.
