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.
