What’s the Best Way to Get VoIP for My Business?Voice over Internet Protocol phone service, more commonly referred to as VoIP, has earned its place as the most productive and cost-effective way for you to operate the phone system for your business. It’s no longer an unproven fad, but the trend for upwardly mobile companies and their leaders with a slew of proven benefits that include: Worldwide telephone service at competitive prices Highest sound quality when both users have compatible headsets Costs are usually less than a traditional phone service Advanced features, such as call recording, auto attendants and call queues Unified communication for your entire team Calls can be encrypted All you need is an internet connection to use VoIP, along with the best service provider to handle your specific needs. Vistanet is an FCC-licensed VoIP telephone service provider, which means they’re more than a reseller or broker. As an FCC-licensed company, they’re held to strict guidelines around privacy and security, and they must meet stringent regulatory compliance requirements.
What Should I Know Before Buying a VoIP System?Because of its rise in popularity, there are many companies that resell and broker VoIP phone services. It’s similar to a real estate transaction, where you can buy and sell property without using a licensed real estate agent. By doing that, however, you run the risk of mistakes happening in your legal transaction that can come back to bite you. But if you use a licensed real estate agent, then you know: The agent has been through extensive industry training. The agent earned all the appropriate certifications and qualifications. The agent must report to a governing body for their industry. Should something go wrong, there is liability protection to a degree.
