VoIP—Voice over Internet Protocol—is an incredibly useful tool for today’s businesses to make use of, especially in terms of improving productivity. Let’s consider a few capabilities that can give you and your team a leg up.
How a VoIP Solution Boosts Productivity
Speeds Up Calls
One of the biggest ways that VoIP can assist your productivity levels is by enabling you and your team to spend less time on the phone. With accessible contact lists and speed dial capabilities, you can dial up the person you’re calling more quickly. As a result, time otherwise burnt up in a phone call can be spent accomplishing your organizational goals.
Facilitates Remote Work
VoIP solutions also make it easier for work to be taken out of the office, allowing for productive work in a wider range of environments. With many VoIP platforms coming with a mobile application, your remote team members can use their smartphone as their office phone. What’s more, this prevents the need for your employees to reach out to your clients from their own number, making many of your employees more comfortable with the prospect of working from home.
Makes Communication More Convenient
VoIP includes many features and capabilities that make communicating properly much simpler for your team. To give just a few examples:
- Calls can be forwarded to another device if an incoming call rings a predetermined number of times.
- “Do Not Disturb” functionality can help prevent distractions from popping up for your team, while priority calls can be set to bypass this setting.
- Emails and SMS messages can inform your team members if they have a voicemail waiting for them.
