VoIP Phones Can Transform Your Business in 2017

With technology playing an intricate part in dental practices, it is vital to have phone systems that can properly support your business.

 You want to make sure your practice is set up with the best technology available, so you never have to worry about your phones not working properly when new clients call to schedule appointments, current clients call to confirm or change their appointments, etc.

If your traditional POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) is not performing in a way that’s optimal for your business – your practice will suffer. So, what’s the solution?

Eliminate your phone worries by turning to a hosted VoIP phone system

VoIP phone systems eliminate expensive on premise hardware with fixed capabilities by moving the brains of your phone system to the cloud.

Here are six reasons why your dental practice should make getting a hosted VoIP phone system a priority in 2017: 

  1. Hosted VoIP phone systems are easier to install, configure and maintain

Hosted VoIP phone systems are simple to install and require minimal additional hardware other than the handsets.

Hosted VoIP phone systems also allow you to quickly and inexpensively add new users, and the web portal makes it easy to move, add, or change the system’s configuration. 

  1. Easily scale up or scale down

When dealing with traditional phone systems, you have to be careful in predicting how many phones you will need in the future. If your predictions are off, you end up spending money on unnecessary phone lines.

Hosted VoIP phone systems are much easier to manage because you can add a new line when a new employee joins your team, or reassign or remove a line when someone leaves.

  1. Range of features

 Hosted VoIP phone systems deliver all of the expected traditional call system features, such as call hold, call transfer, call hunt, conference calling, find me/follow me and attendant phone menus. However, one of the key differences between traditional POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) and hosted VoIP phone systems is how quickly you can reconfigure your hosted VoIP phone system – all it takes is a simple call to Compass Network Group.

One other major benefit of hosted VoIP phone systems is how calls can be diverted to anywhere in the world because of it being hosted in the cloud. This is especially useful if you travel a lot for business.

  1. Hosted VoIP phone systems simplify voicemails

Thanks to hosted VoIP phone systems, you can access your voicemail accounts through emails and with some systems you can even get your voicemails transcribed into text and then routed to your email account for extra convenience.

  1. Save money 

 

 One of the main reasons why so many dental practices utilize hosted VoIP phone systems is to save money.

Legacy systems were expensive, required inconvenient setups and a lot of time for reconfiguration and physical system changes. Plus, all the repairs and needed maintenance ended up being very costly.

When your dental practice utilizes hosted VoIP phone systems, you save on the cost of installation and the actual calls are much less expensive too.
