VoIP gives us so many features and benefits that it is easy to forget some and miss out. VoIP News reminded us of five great features that are too often forgotten.
1. Calling is not limited to the desk phone
Unlike in the past, making calls no longer means sitting at a desk with a telephone in your hand. VoIP allows users to call with soft phones on any kind of device – computers, mobile phones, tablets, etc. For example, gloCOM is a business soft phone for desktop or mobile.
2. Voicemail is flexible
Similar to calling, voicemail is no longer bound to a desk phone. With VoIP, you can access voicemail from any device or even via email. Whether as an audio file or a transcript, your voicemail could be delivered to your inbox along with all your other messages.
3. Transferring is easy
Transferring calls within a VoIP system is as easy as the click of a button. Ever called one number only to be given another number to write down, verify, and then hang up and call? VoIP makes transfers to other branches, remote locations, or even mobile phones possible.
4. Surveillance and security can be incorporated
VoIP and Unified Communications can even incorporate your office security system. Rather this means checking your surveillance cameras right from your soft phone or opening a locked entrance for a visitor, VoIP has you covered.
5. Fax can be VoIP too
Finally, users too often forget that VoIP can include more than just calling. Fax over VoIP (FoIP) functions much like calling and gives you all the same benefits. Fax to email eliminates the need for a fax machine altogether.
