How to Stay Connected with VoIP
Staying connected is the primary function of a phone system. Making phone calls allows you to get in touch with acquaintances and family, and allows businesses to stay in touch with employees, or vice-versa. However, traditional telephony has one major flaw in this regard: it does not allow users to stay connected at all times. Is this a problem for you? If so, here’s how VoIP can help you stay connected.
Roaming is a big thing in businesses, and it is unfortunately made more complicated than it should be due to the limitations of standard phone systems. However, where traditional telephony limited the freedom of roaming employees, VoIP telephony chooses to offer a larger degree of flexibility. With VoIP, an employee who is signed in and connected to the Internet can take calls at any place, which allows employees to stay connected to the office at all times.
2) International numbers
One of the hardest things about moving abroad can be leaving family behind. This is made worse by the large, almost ridiculous fees attached to long-distance calls, which makes talking to family members abroad a complicated and expensive task. However, with VoIP, individuals can obtain foreign phone numbers. These numbers can therefore make local calls in this foreign region without any extra cost, wherever the caller may be. This allows people to easily stay in touch with family members despite living in different countries.
3) Find Me/Follow Me
The Find Me/Follow Me feature is a function that, as the name implies, finds the user and follows him. In other words, it allows multiple phones to be connected to a single account and phone number. When a call is received on this number, every phone with this number will ring—either at once or successively—which essentially allows the feature to find the user’s current location and device, and route the call to him.
