The Landline Phone: Why Put Up with It?

by | Feb 13, 2020 | Business Solutions

Are you sick of getting the exorbitantly high phone bill every month? You’re not alone. It can be frustrating paying all that money, especially if the call quality or reliability is not what you expect. And installing all those phone lines to each employee’s workstation? Don’t even start.

It can be tempting to want to just ditch phones altogether, but that’s not practical. Don’t think so? See how long your business or organization lasts without any phones in the office. Go ahead and try. We’ll wait…And it’s a disaster. Businesses need phones! That’s inescapable.

When’s the last time your business or organization reviewed its phone systems? How long has it been since someone in the office said, “Yes, I’m glad we’re still using copper phone lines. They’re so convenient, reliable, and cheap!” Hello, 1980s? Yes, we’d like to make a return, please.

It might be time to ditch the traditional landline phone for modern options.

One such option is called VoIP, or Voice over IP (Internet Protocol). Seriously, is there anything that the internet can’t make better? Huh? You mean people still fax? No kidding.

VoIP translates all your organization’s communications over its internet connection, eliminating the traditional phone bill. Companies that switch to VoIP from an ISDN system report a 78% reduction in call expenditures. What’s more, users of VoIP systems get better call quality and reliability. And adding VoIP connectivity to new workstations is a cinch because it doesn’t involve running any additional lines. It’s a win-win-win.

There are many features available through VoIP that users of traditional phones are accustomed to like voicemail and conference calling—and many others, besides!
