VoIP - the Future Looks Bright

The future is looking promising for VoIP as more and more businesses realise they need to future proof their communication structure. 

A recent US study by the Software Advice reveals findings that help support the theory that IP communication such as VoIP is the passage to the business longevity (as mentioned in the recent Adapt or Die blog).

Their findings showed that more business buyers already use a VoIP service than any other type of voice service. Full UC (unified communications) is too expensive for SMEs, but cloud PBXs have the perfect balance of being low cost and functionality rich. US businesses are rapidly catching on to this, so the question remains, why are some Australian businesses lagging behind in the undeniable IP revolution?

Software Advice found twenty-one percent of buyers want a system that forwards calls to mobile devices, while 25 percent seek a system with voicemail. This is consistent with feedback from MyNetFone customers in Australia, who report that our 'Follow Me' feature (forwarding calls to mobiles) and 'Voicemail to email' are their top favourite service features of Virtual PBX. 

The study discovered the main reason businesses were seeking a VoIP solution was because they were experiencing aging/end-of-life system problems with legacy PBXs. Additionally, they found many small businesses are currently saving significantly on their monthly phone bills through using the SIP Trunking system, whereby businesses are only charged on the number of simultaneous phone calls that the trunk can support, bypassing the expensive “one line per employee” cost traditional voice systems impose.

These results suggest that hosted VoIP phone system adoption rates will continue to rise as companies move away from legacy and on-premise PBX solutions in search of more scalable futureproof systems. 

VoIP, it's the future of business telecommunications, don't get left behind!
