Looking for more ways to cut costs and improve productivity within your company? Well, switching your phone service to a VoIP provider like Simple Phone Co. could be the best solution. Here are some reasons why making the transition sooner rather than later is a good choice.

Lower Cost
Switching to VoIP can cut your costs significantly. For Simple Phone Co. customers, there are no expensive phone servers or equipment that need to be installed since our VoIP services are cloud-hosted.  We have also made our plans even more affordable by only charging customers for the number of lines (call capacity) they need. 

Mobility
You can bring your VoIP phone anywhere in the world and it will work! All you need is power and an internet connection. You will be able to work remotely without having to compromise or pay additional fees. You can even choose to utilize the amazing power of an IP phone, or the convenience of Wifi calling with your smart phone or laptop!

Convenience & Scalability
Managing your calls is as easy as drag-and-drop. Literally. Our Hosted Phone system allows you to set up your call structures using flowcharts and drag-and-drop features. As an administrator, you can do everything from recording your system’s voicemail or menu greetings to adding an extension for a new hire. All of this and more can be done conveniently from your desktop or laptop.
Speaking of adding extensions, you can add as many extensions or devices as you need in our Hosted Phone system. That’s great for a growing business!

Call Features
There are so many to choose from to make your team more efficient. Call forwarding, conferencing, hot desking, voicemail to email…just to name a few. Check out a full list of our features here. The Simple Phone Co. support team can help you manage these features or you can manage them yourself in your Hosted Phone system. How simple!

Quality
VoIP systems support features like HD Audio which gives you the kind of audio quality that traditional POTS lines and cell phones could only dream about.

These are just a few of the most compelling reasons to switch to a VoIP service. Feel free to contact our sales team at 844-4-SIMPLE if you would like any more information or to set up your small business plan!

It’s officially Small Business week in the United States – a tradition which has been honored by Presidential proclamation every year since 1963.  This year, President Obama highlighted some of the reasons we should all be thankful for small businesses citing that, “America’s small businesses are the backbone of our economy, employing half of our country’s private sector workforce and creating nearly two out of every three new jobs in our country.”  (You can read the full proclamation here.)

It’s true, small businesses produce more than half of the United States’ private sector GDP (gross domestic product) with 90% of them doing so with fewer than 20 employees.  These facts are not just impressive, they highlight the real driving forces behind our economy: constant innovation by every-day entrepreneurs like that friend of yours who had a great idea to start their own bakery, or your neighbor that runs an IT startup from their garage.

Simple Phone Co. is proud to be along-side them in this category and we encourage you to thank small businesses not only for their contribution to the nation’s economy, but for their willingness to take risks to better themselves and their communities.
