One of the most important features of both enterprise storage, and now business VoIP, is mobility. Mobility has always been a key advantage of cloud storage; businesses want a safe way to store their data, but at the same time they don’t want that data to only be accessible at the office. With cloud storage, businesses can access their data from any device with Internet capabilities as long as it has company permission.
But mobility also now comes with business VoIP, which again differentiates the service from traditional phone services. A recent Smart Business article explains why businesses are now searching for mobility in their phone services and how cloud storage may have affected this trend:
“Cloud computing is becoming very popular. People are pushing their data away from their facility so it is available anywhere. However, they haven’t done this with their phone system because of traditional phone service capabilities. This is starting to change. Now, instead of being subject to the capabilities of a phone system, businesses are dictating how they want to communicate with their customers.”
With business VoIP, companies can use their service from any device that has Internet. Compare that with traditional phone services, which could only be used at a few locations in the office.
Another example as to how business VoIP is mobile is when a business is either moving or opening up a new office. With traditional phone services, a company would most likely have to change their number and then give their new number to every client, employee, and business partner. But with business VoIP, companies can either open up a new office or move to a new location without having to change their phone number. By keeping their old phone number, the move is a lot easier and the business can continue communicating with clients.
