Should you switch to VOIP or stick with what you have?

As business leaders, it’s easy to get stuck in our ways. Sometimes we fall into the trap of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That’s especially true for anything that requires company-wide change, or may incur additional costs.

However, we also know that maintaining out-dated technology can lead to problems, including:

  • Obsolescence
  • Difficulty to maintain and administer
  • Higher long-term costs   
  • Less customization and business-fit   
  • Added complications    

In this article we’re going to show you how upgrading to VOIP can do just the opposite.

VOIP Provides Whole New Features

The biggest aversion that business leaders have to upgrading to VOIP is the costs. But the fact is, that if you’re still using an old phone system, chances are that you’re locked into an expensive contract. There may be monthly fees, renewal fees, per minute fees, and cancellation fees. Not to mention the costs of adding new users, new devices, or new features.

And those costs add up.

But in upgrading to VOIP, you don’t want to trade one expensive contract for another. Especially working with a new vendor that hasn’t had a chance to fully earn your trust yet.

Instead you need a commitment-free solution. A VOIP provider that offers cost-effective month-to-month terms, with a rich feature set. Instead of a one-size-fits-all plan, you need customization that can address the unique needs of your business.

That’s where a provider like AvidBit comes in. Terms are cost-effective, month-to-month, and feature rich; applying and configuring the custom feature set that is right for your business.

Maintaining Old Systems is Hard and Expensive

The plain fact is that all technology degrades and fails over time. The system as a whole may “work”, but components fail. And as time goes on, replacement parts get harder and harder to find – as are technicians qualified to replace those parts.

And as more and more parts fail, it’s inevitable that the system itself will fail.

That means down time: loss of productivity, loss of revenue, and a loss of faith in the stability of your business.

Ease VOIP Administration With a Single Point of Contact

With older phone systems administration was difficult. If there were issues you may have to contact the provider, they may have to send out a tech, or it might be something on your end, and your own tech would need to troubleshoot.

Resolving issues could take hours or even days.

With VOIP it’s easy.

Because of the nature of VOIP, you have a single point of contact. One number that you can call and get a rapid response and quick turn-around time. No one has to come to the office, your IT Department doesn’t need to get involved. Just one quick call is all it takes!

Long-Term Cost Savings of VOIP

In addition to the ease of administration, and month-to-month cost savings, VOIP also provides significant cost savings in the long run.
