Our recent survey of 2,400 small businesses found that many don’t have a back-up plan in place to cope with broadband down time and this could be costing UK businesses as much as £340 million every year; a cost that the UK economy could do without.
One way firms can avoid unnecessary losses – and boost flexibility simultaneously – is by taking advantage of internet telephony, known as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), using an internet connection to make telephone calls. The main draw for businesses is the significant cost savings in comparison to fixed-line phone lines, often as much as 20 per cent or more. Calls between staff are free, with significant additional cost savings on the ‘per second’ landline and mobile rates.
Another advantage of VoIP for business is the ability to seamlessly transfer calls between mobile and desk-based handsets. Users can adopt just one phone number and take it with them wherever they are in the world, when businesspeople call a client from Rome; the caller display will still say Romford.
