VoIP or with full name its Voice over Internet Protocol is the advanced technology over traditional communication methods. In businesses, everyone has some communication medium with their clients. Before few years, it was totally dependent on traditional phones lines and data chatting through computer systems. But now the communication methods have become easier with the help of VoIP service. VoIP is basically an internet based telephone system which costs very less comparing to traditional telephone bills.

Basically there are main three types of VoIP present – VoIP Phones (or you can say IP Phones which are very similar to traditional phone sets), Mobile VoIP (used in mobile phones) and software VoIP (that works from computers). The most common example of software VoIP is “Skype”. One can take these three types of VoIP within a single package.

Now let us find out the reasons that why the small scale businesses switch to VoIP phone service:

Even the overseas calls are very cheap. Moreover, it has not any initial call cost.

VoIP works in advanced way. It is not like traditional phone that one can only able to do verbal conversation, instead one can see the other person also. And the whole call details are automatically recorded in the computer, you do not need to keep the records into paper. Voice clarity is similar as in traditional phones and there is no disturbance while conversing. Also many people can call from the same line as different numbers has been made to all.

Integrated Voice and data services
