Prices for internet phone plans have come down significantly as more service providers are entering the market. And, in the current crisis, VoIP service providers are helping by offering promotions that bring prices down even further.
What’s more, cloud-based phone service based on VoIP technology provides telecom service that works better for today’s business, at a lower cost.
How much can you save with a VoIP internet telephone service? Some examples
A small business cuts waste & gets modern service.
We recently worked with a small business in the food industry that was paying $486 per month for 14 phone lines. The first thing we realized was that the business only had 11 employees! They were paying for 3 lines that were not even in use. By reducing their plan to 11 seats and switching to a different VoIP phone service provider, we cut their payment down to $303 per month. AND they got additional features that really helped their employees work on the go, such as a mobile app that allowed them to make and receive landline calls on their cell phones.
The business owner also gained the ability to make changes to the phone system on his own… without paying high change fees to the provider. He also got a $450 rebate when we purchased new modern phones to replace his obsolete ones.
A medium-sized business avoids $90,000 cash outlay to replace an obsolete phone system.
This business was limping along with an old Toshiba phone system that was no longer supported by the manufacturer, and paying $1650 per month for 150 lines plus maintenance. When their old carrier (Verizon) told them they could no longer support it, the company was forced to find a new solution. At first, it looked like they were facing a $90,000 cash outlay for a new phone system.
Instead, we moved them to a new VoIP phone plan with unlimited calling in North America and 30 additional countries. They got new features that better supported the business, including mobile twinning (making & getting landline calls on a mobile phone), texting, and voicemail-to-email. They got an auto-attendant that can continue to pick up and route calls in the event of a power failure or emergency. And their IT staff can easily manage system changes on their own.
Best of all, the company was able to finance the equipment. So for three years, they pay $1904 for the plan plus the equipment. After that, their bill goes down to $1470. So they avoided the $90,000 cash outlay, and they saved on their monthly payment after three years. And it gets better… they even got a $5250 cash rebate on the equipment.
Businesses like yours are saving big.
We could go on all day telling these stories:
- A marketing company with 135 employees reduced their bill from $5200 to $1780 per month.
- A faith-based organization with 24 users avoided paying $15,000 for a new phone system by switching to a VoIP plan that came with phones included.
- A New York City business kept their old phone system and still managed to cut their bill from $1490 to $600 per month.
- Many companies are saving by replacing analog fax and alarm lines with digital services.
So, how can you find deals like this for your business? It’s much easier than you might think.
How to find the best VoIP phone service & get started NOW
Even beyond the current need to work remotely, there are many reasons to take a look at what you’re paying for your business phone system… and what you’re getting. You might have downsized. You might need modern features that you can’t get with your current provider. Everyone needs a more secure system with redundancy and disaster recovery built in. You might want the ability to make changes without paying for maintenance.
Also, today’s businesses simply don’t make as many calls as they did years ago. Email and texting have taken the place of calling. You probably don’t need as many lines as you in years past.
You can get all of these benefits and more by switching to the right VoIP phone service provider.
However, there are dozens of VoIP phone service providers, and they are NOT all the same. Wading through all their information is complex and time-consuming.
