Hosted Business VoIP Benefits

Business Hosted VoIP for small companies.

Business people on tiled floor.updated 1/12/2020 VoIP and IP telephony has become the communications system of choice for both small and large businesses. A hosted business VoIP service is ideal for just about all business, being much more affordable and feature rich than traditional telephone service. A hosted VoIP service allows even the smallest business to have a big business presence with a communications system that has robust features at an affordable price.
With big upfront savings and monthly plans that can accommodate almost any budget hosted business VoIP services are one of the first choices for most small businesses.

Cloud Based Voice Service or Business Hosted VoIP

Hosted VoIP Providers, also known as Voice Cloud Service, offer support and guidance which many small organizations cannot afford on their own. With an off premise or cloud based phone solution there is no need for server deployment, configuration or maintenance and the risk associated with a new installation. The provider has done all those requirements and takes care of the features, functionality and upgrades that may be required. They will offer support for their customers helping them with configuration issues, troubleshooting and installation.
Although an Asterisk based VoIP PBX solution may be the answer for those that want total control and self management of their phone system, the ease of deployment and help with configuration from the provider of a hosted solution should make it the first choice in small companies that lack the IT professionals for more complex installations.

Business VoIP or an Internet Business Phone Cloud Based System (or a hosted PBX system) is a phone system where the provider houses most of the equipment and handles the technological needs and resources which the phone system requires to operate. The provider usually handles the support for the service eliminating the need for an in-house phone tech, further reducing overhead. Customers contract for their PBX phone services and forgo most of the expenses for PBX equipment.
IP phones, such as Polycom or Yealink phones, are usually the main hardware purchase for the customer. They connect through an Internet connection (router) using VoIP technology to the hosting company's servers, which then handle the phone calls, extension dialing and other advanced calling features that a business requires using Asterisk PBX software.

Some of the benefits of hosted VoIP are:
  • Lower cost, big savings- Get local and long distance plans that are lower cost with one monthly fee. Save substantial amounts on International calls.
  • Easy to start, easy to setup- Since no phone system resides at your business it's as easy as opening an account and plugging in your phones. Features can be turned on with a few easy clicks.
  • Anywhere employees- Remote workers or work from home employees connect right up. Two business locations, no problem, they all connect up.
  • Advanced feature rich system- Just like the big business PBX, hosted VoIP gives you the features and tools that can grow your business, from an attendant to voicemail for everyone to call forwarding.
  • No more missed calls- Prevent busy signals and missed calls by setting up the system to direct and handle calls.
  • No on site PBX, no maintenance- The VoIP provider maintains the PBX, not you. Without all that phone equipment you'll save money by not needing the phone guy to maintain equipment and do those on site visits every time you need and phone moved.
  • Automatic Upgrades- VoIP business phone service is continually becoming more advanced with new features. Rather than having to go through the cost and disruption of system upgrades to an on premise based PBX, a business can benefit from a cloud based voice provider's late technology and upgrades done at their expense and time.
