By moving to internet phone technologies, businesses are not only able to save a great deal of money but also improve their communications infrastructure. Small home based businesses which could never have a fully fledge business phone system installed at their premises can now enjoy all the benefits at fraction of the cost. Some VoIP services offer value for money business call plans specifically targeted towards small home-based business ventures.


A key disadvantage of the landline phone is that you cannot easily scale it up or down. This is why many businesses with quickly expanding or contracting business sizes prefer VoIP because it enables business management to easily add, edit or even delete user privileges centrally through the control panel. There is no need to follow the tedious processes involved if you use a regular landline phone. This makes internet phone technology significantly more suitable for large business organizations.


Most businesses have the need for a portable phone system that can be used anywhere. Obviously, landlines do not meet this criterion, and no landline is suitable communication while traveling. The answer is a digital VoIP service that can be used anywhere in the world. All you need is an internet connection, and your VoIP phone can be connected to any telephone number in the world, whether than is connected to the VoIP network or not.


You can use your internet phone through the regular VoIP ATA option or you can install the software on your PC. It is now possible to install a VoIP service on your smartphone running on the Android or iOS mobile operating systems.

Businesses need a number of telephony features to help improve their productivity and efficiency. The investment to achieve this with a regular landline service is high, while many VoIP providers offer many of these features free of charge. Even for the more advanced services that are charged for cost significantly less with a VoIP service than a regular terrestrial telephone service.

Among the high-demand features offered by high profile VoIP service providers to businesses are call forwarding, call on hold, conference calling, video calling, and free in-networking calls.

Computer to Computer Features

The only things you need for this are the concerned software, a microphone, speakers, sound card, and an internet connection, preferably one with good speed like you get through a cable or DSL modem. There is usually no charge for computer-to-computer calls, no matter the distance except for your monthly connection charges.
