What is VoIP?


Sounds like a silly sound effect from a cartoon, but it’s actually just another technological acronym. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), also called broadband phone service, or IP telephony, is anything but silly or phony.  If your business requires phone usage, take a closer look at the advantages that VoIP has to offer.

VoIP is the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol networks, such as the internet, rather than a public switched telephone network.  This technology converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing calls to be made directly from a computer, VoIP phone or a cell phone.

One of the many benefits is its ability to connect to multiple offices, contractors, and on-site users to a single system. With one unified telephone system, your business can be connected quickly with free internal calls.

A basic landline hasn’t changed much over the years. Dial out numbers, call waiting, and voicemail are the basic capabilities. VoIP can deliver so much more of what’s expected in this high speed technology driven day and age. 

VoIP can offer:

  • Video Calls and Screen Shares from a desktop or cell phone
  • Text Messaging (SMS)
  • CRM Integrations
  • Visual Voicemail
  • Call Park/Retrieve
  • Faxing Online
  • Unlimited Calls
  • Automated Answering
  • Video Calls and screen shares (even from a cell phone)
  • Shared Call Appearance
  • Multi-Ringing
  • Clear Voice Quality
  • Flexible and Customizable
  • and more!
