Traditional phone systems are one of the last ties many offices have to last century technology. During the pandemic, it became clear that they’ve become outdated and hold companies back from the flexibility they need in today’s world.
While they work fine if everyone is making and receiving company calls from a single location, a desk at the office, that’s not the way people work any longer.
Remote teams became the business story of the pandemic. Companies needed to move swiftly to create a Work-From-Home technology infrastructure and one piece that just didn’t fit in was the legacy phone system.
80% of company leaders plan to allow staff to work remotely at least part-time after the pandemic, and 47% will allow remote work full time.
The modern office needs cloud-based tools to remain resilient and competitive. That’s why VoIP phone systems like UD Voice, are becoming the norm.
What are the benefits of UD Voice VoIP over legacy phone systems?
Companies can significantly lower their overhead by switching from a traditional phone system to UD Voice. There are no expensive installation costs and monthly phone service fees are also less than a landline.
It’s estimated that the average business cost savings after switching to VoIP are between 30% to 50%.
Startup costs for a new company are also a fraction of the cost with VoIP because there’s no on-premises equipment to purchase or have installed. Companies can easily add and remove lines anytime and only pay for what they need.
Supports Work-From-Home Teams
Legacy phone systems do not work for WFH teams. VoIP extends the company phone system to employees wherever they are, giving them a way to call out on a company line from any location.
Remote teams can transfer customer calls between each other, just like at the office, and get access to all the enterprise-class features of the phone system, such as:
- Call waiting
- Call queue
- Ring groups
- Company directory
- Caller ID
- Extension calling
- 3-way calling
- And more
Customers calling your company get the same professional experience no matter where your employees are located.
Apps for Smartphones
More than 80% of work on average is now performed on a mobile device. Smartphones have become the tool of flexibility and convenience and boost productivity by making it easy for people to access business tools from anywhere.
With UD Voice, you can use your business phone lines from a smartphone. Employees can take a call on their PC and then easily switch over to mobile if they need to leave their desk.
The UD Voice smartphone app makes it possible for teams to stay in touch with each other and their customers no matter where they are.
Another benefit to teams moving to VoIP with UD Voice is the ability to send a text message from their business phone number. And because the number isn’t connected to a specific mobile phone, you can enjoy texting capabilities from any device.
Being able to type out an SMS from your PC is a huge bonus, especially if you hate typing on those small smartphone screens.
Text messaging is a feature unique to VoIP that you won’t find on legacy landline systems.
Enables Virtual Meetings
VoIP is in the cloud world, giving it unique capabilities, like video calls in addition to audio calls. It enables virtual meetings, which have become a vital tool to keep companies connected to their customers and employees during the pandemic.
You can initiate a high-quality virtual meeting right from your computer or from the phone’s desk set.
