Conference Call: A Blog About Phone Services

Good day. I’m Jason, and I’m in charge of IT for a large logistics company. Whilst my main focus is on computing, I’ve recently spent a lot of time researching updates to our phone services. In hindsight, I realise that our old system really was antiquated. I guess in these days of emailing, it is easy to forget that telephones can still be a vital tool for connecting people. Recently, I was involved in a teleconference which solved a problem in ten minutes! Sometimes more personal forms of communication really are best. I’ve started this blog to let others know about the types of phone services I have discovered out there. I hope you find it useful and informative.

These are better suited to smaller organizations. One of the main advantages of these business phone systems is that they are portable. As such, in the event that you need to relocate, you can easily move with your business phone system without having to worry about additional installation costs. However, it should be noted that before you opt to install this type of business phone system, you need to ensure that it is compatible with other communication components in your office such as your modems, fax machines, headsets and more.

Voice over Internet Protocol business phone systems.

These are commonly referred to as VoIP business phone systems. Unlike regular phone systems that need to be connected to conventional telephone lines, these phones exclusively use internet connectivity for your business' communication needs. It is largely preferred for most businesses as it comes with a host of other capabilities due to its internet connectivity feature. Not only can you conduct phone conversations with your employees and clientele, but you can also send emails, fax, click to chat on websites and more.
