As we mentioned last week, one of the tools for healthy telecommuting is your business’s phone service. Ideally, everyone in the company will be on the same network – this is true for businesses with multiple offices, as well as for businesses with telecommuters. If everyone’s phone is on the same network, calls within the network are free. It also allows for seamless client call transfers, and for the business to present a single phone number to the public.
VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, allows you to do just that. With VoIP, voice communications are transmitted over the internet, rather than traditional phone lines. That frees up a lot of configuration options that aren’t available with a traditional phone service – including getting multiple remote locations on the same network.
If you’re interested in getting a VoIP service for your company, or even combining one with an analog system, Janus Networks can set you up.
