One of the reasons why business planning is so difficult is because there are so many unknown factors that companies need to take into account.
Along the way, there could be unpredicted growth (or stagnation), or unprecedented demand in a different location. There are concrete factors, of course, but businesses mainly want to remain flexible so that they can react to the unexpected.
Yet when it comes to expanding, communications is usually one of the trickiest parts. In the past, setting up new phone lines was expensive and businesses were reluctant to move locations.
With business VoIP phone services, however, companies no longer have to dread switches to their phone system. While adding a new line or number with a traditional landline phone system is expensive, adding a new line with business VoIP is cheap and simple.
A recent Business 2 Community article walks through the process of making changes with a VoIP system. The article explains that making simple adjustments or additions with VoIP is straightforward and cost-effective:
“VoIP makes it easy to add separate phone numbers, messaging with call routing, and set up business hours on the same system, so you don’t have any more equipment to purchase, or “lines” to install.”
Businesses may need to set up new lines to control telecommunications traffic. For example, the marketing team should have a different phone line than the sales team, and the accounting department should have a different phone number than the manager’s office.
In addition, moving to new locations or supplying mobile employees with a company number is feature of VoIP. Adding remote phone lines for employees can be done with the same VoIP system, so the upgrade doesn’t require any new hardware except an additional VoIP phone.
