When your employees were local and attended the office every day, the phone contract they used didn’t really matter.
As long as it wasn’t too expensive and the service offered you a discount on multiple numbers, you could have chosen between Vodafone, EE, O2, and Three.
Yet, as the number of remote workers has boomed since 2019, you might have noticed an uptick in international call charges that are directly hurting your profit margin.
The Rise in Remote Working
Whether you recruit without borders or your team is full of nomads; the bill to maintain communication between one employee and another falls on you.
Even with internet-based tools at their disposal, like:
- Video Conferencing Software
- Instant Messaging
- Social Media
- Project Management Apps
Sometimes an urgent call has to be made for a question that simply can’t wait. In these instances, the registered emergency number on file is always used and, before long, you have an extra charge to pay.
Instead of running this risk, why not mitigate expensive phone bills by switching to VoIP?
What is VoIP?
VoIP (or Voice over Internet Protocol) is a digital solution that combines your internet with a telephone service. This means international calls can be made at no extra cost.
What is the Purpose of VoIP?
Rather than carrying around a second mobile phone for work, VoIP software allows employees to have a secondary work number registered on their personal device. They can set their working hours so that they aren’t receiving notifications late into the night at unsociable hours.
The Benefits of VoIP for Remote Working Environments
In a world where 44% of workers are on remote or hybrid contracts, VoIP is an ideal and smart solution for money-conscious business owners.
Thanks to the incredible WiFi and 5G infrastructure available to us, the internet is nearly always accessible. This means, regardless of their location, your employees will be able to receive and make calls through VoIP.
“By signing up for a leading VoIP service, you and your team can work from anywhere, so long as you have an internet connection. Yes, that’s right, as long as you’re connected to the internet, you can make and receive calls, as you would in the office.” – T2K
