VoIP – A small business dream or the road to ruin?
Ok I only have to type the word VoIP into Google before I receive hundreds of thousands of sites telling me they are the cheapest bestest most amazing thing to happen to telecoms since Alexander Graham Bell popped onto the scene back in 1847.
But what is the reality?
I am a small business owner who relies on my phone line as one of the biggest foundations of my business. If my phone doesn’t ring I have no business. It really is as simple as that. Now VoIP does get my cost conscious juices flowing… the call prices are just so competitive that I certainly do not want to be missing out on a good thing but at the same time I don’t want to be stuck with some shoddy solution that annoys my clients and ultimately costs me money.
So here’s what I have decided to do.
As a cost optimiser I owe it to my clients to ensure they have the most cost effective solution but at the same time no compromises on efficiency.
After much deliberation I have decided to test run this mystical ‘VoIP’ and run it parallel with my current fixed landlines.
After much research I have ordered the Snom 320, I have been assured by the trusty sales chappy ‘It’s the best in the business love… you can’t go wrong…’ Well we shall just see about that!
Watch this space…
I will be reporting back my findings and let you know how my VoIP experience is unraveling. In the meantime please feel free to comment on your own personal experiences…or give me a call!
