VoIP Phones for Small Business

Benefits of VoIP office phones part 2 – Reducing costs

It would be hard for us to do a summary of the main benefits of VoIP office phones for small businesses without mentioning the extraordinary cost savings that can be achieved with a well managed VoIP phone system. At Desk-Phone our average customer savings is an impressive 73% for those who have traditional phones and with UK startups and small businesses having to stay lean in these hard times these cost savings on your office phones can be put into other areas of your business such as your Digital Marketing. So how do we achieve these cost savings for our customers?

Why do VoIP Office Phones cost less?

One of the main reasons that VoIP or Voice over internet protocol phone systems are much cheaper than their traditional counterparts it that they do away with all the costly initial cost and infrastructure of dedicated office phones such as physical phone lines, voicemail servers and PBX systems. Here at Desk-Phone we have seen small business phone systems of less than 10 phones that cost more than £5000 before the phones are even installed, costs that we find are just unrealistic for the majority of small enterprises in todays difficult markets. As a result of these low setup costs, not only do small business owners save great deal of money from the outset but we as a telecoms provider are able to offer far more flexible servicing agreements. Because of this Desk-Phone can not only offer low monthly pricing of but also allow our customers the opportunity to cancel their subscription at any time as they are not tied into a contract. If these savings weren’t enough, with VoIP all your calls are routed over your broadband connection which greatly reduces your call charges and removes costly line rental. Most of our office phone customers pay as little as 1/10 of the costs traditional telecoms providers charge them for making calls with savings being particularly high for long distance calling such as phoning USA and Europe.
