More and more businesses are switching out their landlines for VoIP business phone systems. These hosted systems are designed with features that will enhance your productivity in and out of the office. Here are a few of those features:
1. Call Screening
It can be frustrating to be right in the middle of a huge project when your phone rings. While you know that you are waiting on an important sales call that you need to close, you also know that it could be a vendor or even your mother calling – both of whom can wait until later for you to speak with. Do you risk picking up the phone and losing your train of thought on your project if it is your mother or the vendor? Do you risk not answering and losing the sale? Luckily, you don't have to worry about either if you have a modern business phone system with a call screening feature, as it will announce the caller's name so that you can decide whether or not to answer the call or leave it be for now.
2. Several Devices, One Number/Extension
VoIP phone systems are ideal for small and large businesses alike because they allow for multiple devices to use the exact same number, extension and voicemail. In other words, you can answer your phone calls regardless of where you are – whether you're in your office, the conference room, or even your bedroom. You can always stay on task and avoid missing important business calls even when you're not in the office.
3. Phone and Web Conferencing
It can sometimes be difficult to get all of your employees in one place at the same time for a meeting. This is even truer when you need to get a busy vendor in the office for an in-person meeting. A web conferencing feature will allow you to get multiple people on a phone or video call so that pertinent information can be discussed and work can be finished quickly regardless of where participants are located and what they may be doing at the time.
These hosted phone systems have really advanced in the last several years and new features are constantly being adding to the arsenal of VoIP business phone systems.
