With the use of the internet, VoIP, or the voice over internet protocol, has come into existence. VoIP basically uses the internet signal to provide its users endless possibilities to communicate.
Because of the boundless possibilities, it is one of the best tools to boost profit in any business, especially the investment firms. With the most up-to-date services VoIP can offer, business sectors are starting to grab this new technology.
What are the possible roles of VoIP to Investment Firms?
Obviously, the role of VoIP is communication. However, if you really try to maximize its potentials, you would agree that VoIP increases productivity. Since it was created with internet as its base of connectivity, the range of its coverage is also worldwide. With this, investment firms are now extending their services worldwide without any additional capitalization.
Compared to wired telephony system, VoIP offers magnificent services that create significant increase in productivity for businesses in the following ways:
As what we have discussed in the first part of this article, VoIP is internet powered. It means that you can make use of the VoIP services 24/7 anywhere. This is the best part of it because you can now update your business anywhere. Or, you can check your emails, your voice messenger, and most especially, answer important calls. VoIP is indeed the most accessible means of communication in business.
You can now integrate VoIP in any of your business web pages. For instance, instead of spending too much in call cards you can save by putting your Skype contacts in your web page, social media sites and advertisement pages. Most of the VoIP are now available in most of the smart phones. So anywhere, with fast internet connection, you can now contact anyone without spending too much.
The flexibility of using VoIP phones can be appreciated by its presence in most of the gadgets available in the market. Most of the VoIP are equipped with functions that can be easy to manipulate in different consoles. For example, you can use Skype in most of the smartphones and tablets. With this, you can actually go mobile without worrying about your business that’s left in the office.
Of course! What would be the edge of VoIP if it does not exceed the services in your old fashion telephone? VoIP has more functions like call forwarding, voice recorder, call waiting and the shocking part, video calling.
- Cut costs
You can pay your expensive internet connection, but never to a telephone bill, which only offers one service of voice call. Now, most business firms prefer the use of the internet as means of communication because it really saves. Imagine paying only one bill when it can offer you everything in this world.
I am still not able to find a reliable and cheap VOIP device, I read many discussion for ooma hub vs telo and actually it is hard to compare between ooma telo vs hub as they are very close in features and buyers are really confused which one is the best fit to buy
Thanks for the tips.
I guess MX Skype Recorder is also a very good option
Hope you’ll like it!
Thanks for the tip!
Business intelligence tools provided a unified view of operations for managers in order to identify opportunities for growth and efficiency.
Data tends to be spread around, trapped in various silos. The latest wave of BI tools is attempting to remove the barriers between those silos so that a holistic picture is formed based on multiple data sources. This provides much more accurate forecasts.
Thanks for the input, coming to us from Melbourne. There certainly are different aspects to consider, as well as research that is still yet to be done. It is amazing to me to consider the ebbs and flows of the knowledge of the technology, let alone its discovery and how we choose to use it (or not use it). Thanks!
Many of you may encounter some technical problems when you first install a VoIP phone. Make sure the VoIP provider provides good customer support including 24 hours phone support 7 days a week.
Yes, it is an excellent idea to ensure that your provider provides appropriate support, training, and installation expertise. While I had good experiences with my vendors, I have had other situations where that has not been the case. So, it is definitely important.
I agree with all the steps. Business owners should read this to further their knowledge on handling their business.
Thanks for the kind words. I agree. There are many aspects of business. Each one needs to be handled correctly and with expertise.
I think there soon will be a trend away from instant messages to voice-only messages, especially in business – it’s much more effective and cheap in the long run
Interesting viewpoint/perspective. Thanks for sharing. I’m not sure if I see research supporting that, but I am wondering if it depends on the target audience and their behavioral patterns and comfort zones. Of course, this comes from my experience in psychological (business) research for my doctorate, so there may be some bias there. On the other hand, research is research (when performed correctly and with appropriate validity and peer-review), so that somewhat negates bias to some degree.
