Thankfully, The IT Department are here to help. Our expert team of IT professionals understand the needs of small business and will set you up with a VoIP phone system that not only saves your business money – but improves your productivity.

Why VoIP phone systems?

VoIP ­stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It’s a type of technology that allows its users to make calls over the Internet, rather than through a traditional landline system.

VoIP phone systems for small business are quickly becoming the norm across Australia. This is partly due to the improvements in the technology, as well as the decommissioning of the copper (landline) network due to the roll out of the National Broadband Network (NBN).

But it has a range of benefits beyond necessity, including:

  • Reduced costs ­– Instead of having to choose Telstra or Optus, you can utilise an endless list of providers with plans to suit your call requirements.
  • Portability – A lot of VoIP phone systems use virtual handsets on your computer or smartphone (known as softphones), which means you can answer calls anywhere in the world.
  • Flexibility – Whether you want one phone number or 100, VoIP phone systems are easily (and quickly) scalable, making them a far more flexible product for your small business.
