Teleworking is becoming an increasingly common for businesses looking to cut costs. With employees working from home, small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) can cut costs on overhead, and reduce the amount of time and productivity lost to commuting. One of the most important elements of teleworking is the communication system implemented to allow employees this flexibility. Vonage Business’ IP telephone system makes teleworking much simpler and more affordable for small businesses.

How Affordable is Teleworking with a VoIP Phone System?

If you’re looking for a superior means of communication without breaking the bank, then an IP telephone system (IP stands for Internet Protocol) is the way to go. Affordable, portable and easy to use, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology is transforming the way businesses correspond with colleagues and customers alike.

For a low monthly rate, you’ll enjoy all the features of a traditional phone system and long distance calling. Calls are placed over the Internet, and all of the features are delivered to your companies phones, no matter where they are plugged in. This makes VoIP technology less expensive to use – and helps your small business save a significant amount of money on phone service.

Unlike standard phone lines, an IP telephone system from Vonage doesn’t require any heavy equipment on your end. We host all necessary equipment off site, so you can enjoy a hassle-free phone system. Teleworking only requires a high speed Internet connection, and your employees can all be connected to the same company phone system, no matter where they are. This means making and receiving calls from their company number, being accessible from the phone menu via extension dialing, and transferring calls to other employees.

With IP telephone systems, you can work from anywhere, anywhere around the world. As long as there is a broadband connection – and there pretty much is on every corner – you can plug your phone into your computer and it’s as if you’ve brought your office along with you!
