More Than Half Of Small Business Buyers Are Looking At VoIP For The First Time

Sponsored Content provided by Joey Stone - General Manager and Vice President , Teleco

Small business owners are learning that VoIP is a powerful tool that enables them to amplify productivity while simultaneously slashing expenses. If you are not currently investigating how business VoIP can benefit your company, you may be putting your small business at risk, as many of your competitors have either invested in VoIP already or have started to look into it. In fact, more than half of prospective VoIP buyers from small businesses (annual revenues of $100 million or less) that were surveyed in 2014 by Software Advice, an online tool for telecom reviews, were investing in business VoIP for the first time.
 
Star2Star’s business VoIP solutions, offered locally by Teleco, could give you a leg up on competitors who are adopting lesser communications technologies.

Star2Star offers benefits that include:
 

  • Key System Emulation: With a new VoIP phone system, you can design your interfaces to replicate those of your existing communications system, making them simpler to learn and use; there’s no need to change the way you do business. Plus, you can rid your facility of its closet full of wires for physical phone lines and the accompanying hardware. And you can gain a multitude of features not easily available for traditional hard-line system, such as forwarding calls to your mobile phone and making calls from your desktop computer or laptop device.
  • Cost Reduction: VoIP features are designed to reduce costs while providing additional capabilities, such as the ability to add phone lines quickly and without breaking the bank. Another example is a reduction in travel costs from using built-in collaboration tools such as online conferencing and simple-to-use video calls. Furthermore, Star2Star’s StarBox Cloud Connection Manager communications solution is small and power-efficient; it connects over the Internet to one of our data centers, where we manage and monitor the quality of your phone system 24/7. To keep initial capital expenditures low, we offer entry-level phones at a low cost and monthly hardware and lease options.
  • Flexible Functionality: With VoIP, your employees will have more ways to stay connected according to their unique communications needs. And they’ll find it easy to work remotely from any place with an Internet connection. Star2Star has telephones with different capabilities so employees can have the right phones for their jobs. Our variety of service options provides all the individual communications features you need without a prerequisite to acquire any you don’t need.
  • Disaster Protection: Star2Star employs redundant Internet connections that phone service protection to keep your business up and running, even in the event of a disaster. If you experience an outage at your office, regardless of the cause, the StarRecovery System will immediately detect the problem and automatically take over as your phone system. Calls will be rerouted to designated employee cell phones, landlines or other office locations. Star2Star hasn’t experienced one second of downtime since 2011 and our system boasts a 99.999-percent uptime guarantee.
