Businesses considering a technology upgrade might think a VoIP phone system and other updates are cost-prohibitive. When you consider the cost of an upgrade vs. the cost of outdated systems, this is usually not the case. In fact, Ohio.net has so many customizable options and packages for businesses of all sizes that it is worth checking out to see how many ways an updated system can save you money.
Long Distance Charges
Switching to VoIP can save a bundle in long distance charges. Ohio.net offers call forwarding that is far more cost-effective than traditional remote call forwarding, offered by regular phone services. In a remote call forwarding environment, a business wants to possess phone numbers that appear to come from certain geographical areas. This works, but the cost is considerable as calls are forwarded across long distance zones.
In a VoIP call forwarding environment, calls are ported onto a universal platform, thus avoiding many long distance charges. Anytime you add regional offices or telecommuters, the phone numbers you add, or port, create local calling areas that the system can utilize. The result? Companies save thousands of dollars in charges and still have reliable, local presence in any area code.
Many companies, scared off by the high cost of connecting remote offices to a common phone system, have forgone providing company landlines to those remote workers. It’s expensive to connect remote phones to a PBX platform or common phone platform via traditional routes. A VoIP phone system enables 4-digit dialing from office to office. This can save lots of money, and provide support and technology to remote workers.
