When it comes to your profession, how you communicate and the way in which you communicate are two key factors at play. That is why choosing the right communications system is one of the most important decisions for any business. However, this is easier said than done due to the nature of communication needs and the plethora of options available on the market.

…And now back to our regularly scheduled program:

Traditional landline phone systems have long been the king of telecommunications. Luxury homes and business alike have benefited from these phone lines for decades, proving the longevity the invention of landlines has enjoyed. However, with the introduction of mobile phones and other modern communications systems such as VoIP, traditional phone systems have been challenged for their spot at the top of communications systems.

To understand how the introduction of VoIP has become the primary telecommunications system, you must first understand how it differs from traditional phone systems with landlines.

The major difference lies in cost. Both monetary and productivity.

When it comes to the function both traditional phone systems and VoIP systems are intended to provide effective communication between people. However, most people would prefer to spend less money and choose the system that fits their budget. That is where a VoIP system is the better solution than a traditional phone system. This is largely due to the fact that VoIP systems use pre-existing Internet connection, and no PBX requiring routine maintenance. Long gone are the days of copper wires and electrical boxes bent over backwards.

There are several other factors which point to landlines being the in the past and the necessity to look towards to the future with VoIP. One of which being accessibility. The VoIP system is available via a desktop and mobile app so that you can work from home, in the office or on the run. The second and equally important advantage to VoIP is the scalability. If your business is relocating or just simply upgrading, the ability to improve your communications network is made simple with VoIP.

That said, if your business is located in an area where network Internet connection is poor then sticking to old reliable with the traditional phone system may be your only option.

Bottom Line:

VoIP systems offer far more advanced and intelligent features allowing for a complete modernization of business compared to traditional phone lines. That is why you needed a little background information on the cost and functionality of the two. At Liberty Communications, we believe our customer should always have access to the information that will better their business.
