Businesses of all scopes and sizes are continually looking for better ways to boost productivity and implement efficient communication strategies. With so many workers operating remotely, it is crucial to develop effective systems for teams to stay connected. Inefficient communication is a considerable waste of time and money and can also reduce business productivity and performance.
TELUS Business Connect offers a comprehensive solution to accommodate large teams operating out of various locations. VoIP phone services are easily scalable to adapt to your dynamic business needs and add and remove users on the network as required.
Why use a VoIP phone system?
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology offers a method for providing a phone service over the internet rather than through a local phone company. VoIP phone services offer several advantages over traditional phone systems, such as:
- Lower operating costs
- Lower equipment costs
- Easy maintenance
- Reduced monthly expenses
- Enhanced security
- Portability and mobility
Offering lower overall costs for vastly improved features and functionality makes VoIP phone systems a practical and economical choice.
Communication is Key
Anyone that has ever worked in an office environment is likely aware of how difficult communication can be between employees and departments. This is especially true when people are working remotely and businesses have multiple locations. VoIP technology helps eliminate the challenges of physical distance by providing one cloud based platform for effective communication.
