When a technology is released on the market that promises to cut the expense of your old technology in half, it certainly can raise some eyebrows. We all know, when a deal sounds too good to be true it usually is. So when it comes to VoIP, and its wild claims of radically reducing phone costs, what’s the catch? For many business owners who jumped into a VoIP system without a plan or chose the wrong service provider, there can be a big one.
Switching from a traditional phone system to a VoIP one is actually easier than you might think. There isn’t much equipment necessary for installation, and training your staff doesn’t require all that much effort either. Of course, before you make the switch, you’ll need to give some thought to whether or not it will actually be of use to your company.
