VoIP News brings up an interesting quandary for businesses: softphones or mobile phones?
They discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each option:
Everyone already has a mobile phone, so it makes sense to use them. BYOD is so popular already. And for employees that spend time working out of the office, a mobile phone is a valuable tool.
But softphones offer even more benefits. They are usually a free software included with your unified communications solution. Softphones can often function much like a desk phone, so productivity is not lessened. And they have the advantage of a more professional appearance than using a cell phone number.
The decision seems difficult, but we suggest a third option: a mobile softphone.
gloCOM is a business softphone that can be used on desktop or mobile. Whether sitting at a desk with your IP handset, working from a laptop, or on the road with just your smart phone, you can have the same number and expansive functionality.
Don’t worry about making the choice – you can have the best of both worlds. Visit our website to learn more about gloCOM today.
