VoIP makes it easier to talk with colleagues or clients around the world.

Years ago, analog systems were acceptable communications tools. They did what they needed to do: quickly connect you with a colleague or client. They were reliable, and boasted good voice quality. Companies were willing to even pay a little more for these two features. But today, a simple connection isn't enough for companies that value flexibility and low prices. They want a phone system that will meet their increasing demands at a much lower cost than analog phones.

Companies want new, easier ways to chat with employees in the field or connect with other offices hours away. They may even want the flexibility to change how their phone system is set up without having to call their provider.

That's where hosted VoIP solutions come into play. Unlike analog systems, hosted VoIP helps companies run more efficiently. And, as a result, this improves productivity. Here are two benefits of upgrading to hosted VoIP:

1. Quality

Twenty years ago, analog systems were much more dependable than VoIP, which was unreliable and unpredictable. Today, that's not the case. Dropped calls, static and echoes are mostly a thing of the past.

2. Scalability

If you're a growing company, one issue you're likely to run into (if you haven't already) is trying to decide how many new phone lines to add. You don't want to overspend on ones you won't use, after all. With hosted VoIP, you can add a line as soon as you hire a new employee.

If you want to improve your company's communications, upgrade to hosted VoIP.
