In this article we will discuss questions to be asked when looking for a VoIP business system provider.
1. How is the VoIP service provider level compared to your company’s needs?
Although most VoIP business systems offer a cheaper level than conventional telephone companies, it is important to see call rates subject to VoIP providers and how this level is related to the use of your company’s telephone. Don’t just see their local rates, but whether they charge a minute or impose average monthly rates too. In addition, VoIP rates often vary between providers according to the purpose of the call, so if you have many business partners in Europe, you may not be able to go with providers that advertise their call rates to India as the cheapest on the market.
2. Does VoIP service quality meet your company’s standards?
Paying cheap dirt cheap won’t be much useful if you get poor sound quality – especially if you have a business that depends on customer service by telephone. When choosing a provider, make sure you will receive optimal sound quality on the call, even if you need to pay a little extra. Even if you will only use a telephone for staff for staff communication, nothing is more frustrated than unable to talk to someone about the business faced, so always check VoIP quality.
3. Do they offer Hosted PBX or will your PBX work work with their services?
One of the most important elements in the IP Telephony will be your PBX system. In general, if your company has less than 50 employees, limiting IT staff, remote workers, or satellite offices, the host VoIP solution that is hosted is the best choice. Hosted PBX eliminates the need for your business to manage cellphones and offer the lowest possible low-cost telecommunications fees. If you already have a PBX system, make sure it will function with their services before registering.
4. Is the functional VoIP and reliable service provider?
