You may be hesitant switching to a VoIP service provider if you’ve never really dug into all its benefits. Getting accustomed to new technology isn’t always easy and there’s always comfort in familiarity. However, VoIP has been around since 1995 and since the early 2000s, utilizing your broadband internet service to make calls has become increasingly popular. VoIP offers features that traditional landlines don’t. And if they do, it’s at a premium. Three of the features that might cause you to reconsider your home or business phone provider are:
Most, if not all VoIP service providers make your voicemails available to you online. Some even go the extra mile and email you a transcribed version. The advantages of this are many. For starters, urgent messages can actually be tended to urgently. If you’re at work or out of town you can easily log in online and have a listen. From there you can easily call the person back or address the matter by having a friend or neighbor tend to any potential issues while you’re away.
Online Call History
If you like to keep tabs on who you’ve been calling, or better yet, who’s been calling you, access to your call history online is a nifty feature. Most phone providers will mail you your call history at the end of the month, but what about those 29 days in between? For businesses this is huge. Having this information readily available is most certainly useful.
Never Lose Your Number
If you’ve grown attached to your phone number or want to save your kids from hassle of memorizing a new one, a VoIP service is definitely your answer. If your promotion involves a relocation, or if you’re a military family that gets stationed on various bases across the country, you can keep your number. Even if it’s an international relocation. Keeping your local phone number means that friends and family who may not have a VoIP service can still call you in England, and it will still reflect as a local phone call. Win-win if you ask me.
