If you are a growing business the way in which your staff communicate, either internally, with suppliers, or with customers, can have an impact on your success. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a communication technology that uses the Internet, rather than the traditional Analog telephone system. It converts sound into a digital voice communication, and has a number of benefits.

Cost Effective

As a means of communication for all of your staff, VoIP is much cheaper than conventional communication systems. This becomes more apparent if your business requires overseas contacts.


Using a VoIP system allows you to travel with your individual number, so no matter where you are working in the world, all you have to do is log in to your account and away you go. All you need is high-speed Internet access and a headset.


It’s not just the phone call that you can conduct over VoIP, it also allows for highly functioning videoconferencing calls. If you are miles away from the rest of your team, whether on a daily basis as part of a remote team, or on a business trip, you can remain in contact for those important details of business.
